TBS Sets Table for 14-Episode "Thanksgiving with Friends" Marathon

There's no funnier way to spend Thanksgiving than with friends, especially when those friends just happen to be named Rachel, Monica, Phoebe, Ross, Chandler and Joey. TBS is setting the Thanksgiving table for a 14-episode marathon of the hit sitcom Friends. Kicking off Thursday, Nov. 28, at 10 a.m. (ET/PT), TBS's Thanksgiving with Friends marathon will include all 10 Thanksgiving episodes of the popular series, along with four bonus episodes about the time Rachel and Ross "were on a break" in their relationship. A complete schedule is included below.

Friends follows siblings Ross (David Schwimmer) and Monica Geller (Cougar Town's Courteney Cox), along with their close-knit group of friends, Chandler Bing (Matthew Perry), Phoebe Buffay (Lisa Kudrow), Joey Tribiani (Matt LeBlanc) and Rachel Green (Jennifer Anniston). The series debuted in 1994 and proceeded to become one of the highest-rated shows on television. Kudrow and Aniston were both Emmy(R) winners for their work on Friends, and the show won the Emmy for Outstanding Comedy Series in 2002.

Guest stars featured in Friends' memorable Thanksgiving episodes include Brad Pitt as Ross' former high-school buddy and co-founder of the "I Hate Rachel Green Club," Morgan Fairchild as Chandler's incredibly hot mom, Christina Applegate as Rachel's self-centered sister, Michael McKean as Monica's demanding boss, Sherilyn Fenn as one of Chandler's girlfriends and Eddie Cahill as Rachel's handsome but inexperienced assistant.
