Turkey TV

Turkey TV
So, what is special on TV for Thanksgiving? Not exactly a huge holiday for specials, but the networks have cooked up a few including re-heating a few leftovers that still have some flavor left in them. Some surprises include a performance by Need to Breathe, Christopher Walken playing Captain Hook and Courtney Cox with a raw turkey on her head. Here is what TV is serving up tonight and tomorrow:
