TBS Sets Table for 2014 Edition of "Thanksgiving with Friends" Marathon, Plus "Seinfeld" Festivus Celebration
There's no funnier way to spend Thanksgiving than with a bunch of funny people. And few people are funnier than the characters at the center of Friends and Seinfeld. So this Thanksgiving, TBS is inviting them all for a holiday feast. The day will kick off with the third-annual Thanksgiving with Friends, a 14-episode marathon of the hit sitcom kicking off Thursday, Nov. 27, at 10 a.m. (ET/PT). The marathon will include all 10 Thanksgiving episodes of Friends, along with four bonus episodes focusing on dating troubles. Then at 5 p.m., it's time for Seinfeld for the Holidays, a three-hour collection that will climax with the legendary Festivus episode, "The Strike."
