Staying safe at home is a top priority this holiday season because COVID-19 cases are on the rise all over the country. Even the most famous holiday tradition, the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade, will look different this year. So if you need some distraction, an escape, or just something comforting to keep on in the background throughout the day, allow us to help you out by directing you toward the best TV and movie marathons to watch on Nov. 26. 

If you're not spending the day with your own family, there are plenty of fictional families to choose from: BBC's all day Godfather trilogy marathon, Comedy Central's Schitt's Creek marathon, or MTV's Jersey Shore Family Vacation marathon, because naturally. TBS is also airing all those classic Thanksgiving episodes of Friends, while TNT is airing a bunch of DC Universe movies, like Wonder Woman and Aquaman. And if you're just in the mood for something completely different, E! is playing a couple of movies from the Fast and Furious franchise. Why not? Who cares? Go wild if you feel like it. Watch whatever you want. Just do it safely!
