Are you ready for Turkey Day? As I was driving home this afternoon one of the radio DJs was giving advice on what potatoes made the best mashed. I received a terse text message from my sister over a week ago saying she wasn’t doing Thanksgiving till “well after 3pm on Friday.”
I think that was in reply to my “did you want me to bring anything for Thanksgiving?” text message. On a scale of 1-10 for families, mine’s a solid 1. But that’s okay, I don’t mind the solitude the Holidays and the days off from work gives me.
Anyway, I digress. I found these marathons by using my program guide on my DirecTV and forwarding ahead with my remote. I DIDN’T JUST read a bunch of press releases from networks weeks ago. So you can depend that these marathons are 85% correct.
If there’s a network I didn’t list, just Google it i.e. “A&E Schedule,” and 9 out of 10 times it will come up with a great listings schedule of what’s playing for the next week or so. It even lets you click on a timezone.
