If you're not watching the pigskin being tossed around this week, you're going to need something to stare at while that tryptophan wears off. Below, an offering of mob bosses, zombies, Santa, Tim Riggins, and some chain smoking ad men.
To get things started, today AMC will air Gone With The Wind, in celebration of its 75th anniversary, at 9 a.m., 2 p.m., 7 p.m. and midnight. And tomorrow (after you watch the parade on NBC) they'll offer up a Godfather day, with the original movie airing at 11:30 a.m., and Part II at 3:30 p.m.; they'll both repeat later that night. But we recommend heading to ABC on Thanksgiving night (8 p.m.) for another classic: the Charlie Brown Thanksgiving Special.
Also of note, on Thursday after the parade, NBC will kick Christmas movie season into full gear, airing Miracle on 34th Street at 2 p.m.
Back over at AMC, they'll be airing a Mad Men mini-marathon on Sunday, starting at 6 a.m., for three episodes. This will continue each Sunday morning until the Season 5 premiere in March. Following that, you'll get The Walking Dead season 2 marathon, starting at 2:30 p.m. (You can also watch both of the series on Netflix Instant.)

The Cosby Show
