Thanksgiving is primarily about food, family and football. But when you’re stuffed from the food, worn out from your family and maybe not the biggest football fan (or at least of the Lions and Cowboys), what can you watch on TV to change it up?

It would be very easy to assume that the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade and NFL football are your only real TV options on Turkey Day, but there are options outside of the main course of TV programming. Here’s a rundown of what other Thanksgiving TV options are out there.

‘Yellowstone’ marathon

No matter how much you love your family, spending a full day with them can be exhausting. So take a break and spend some time with the Dutton family instead. Paramount Network is presenting a marathon of all of Yellowstone season 1 from noon-10 p.m. ET. If you’ve been meaning to catch up with Yellowstone, what better way could there be than to spend the holiday with one of cable’s most popular shows. 

‘Friends’ Thanksgiving episodes

Many TV shows have done Thanksgiving-themed episodes, but few shows have done it better than Friends (was this the inspiration for people to start having Friendsgiving?). The hit comedy series featured a Thanksgiving-set episode in nine of its 10 seasons and TBS will be airing them all in one gulp, from 1-6 p.m. ET/10-3 p.m. PT.
