Friends Thanksgiving Episodes Ranked

In: Donovan, TV Shows

First and foremost, Happy Thanksgiving to all our US readers. Hope you’re not eating too much turkey today. Something I can never accomplish. I tend to overindulge big time during the holiday season.

To celebrate turkey day, I thought I’d rank Friends‘ Thanksgiving episodes. Their holiday-themed shows were typically their best and most anticipated of the season. Til this day, I still enjoy watching the classic NBC sitcom. Check out how I ranked the episodes below. To refresh your memory, I added a memorable scene from each. Enjoy!

Meghan Trainor Sings Faux Thanksgiving Carols

The market is oversaturated with Christmas albums and every year more and more new ones enter the crowded field. While there are so many songs about Santa, Jesus and other yuletide fare, there’s barely anything about the joys of turkey on Thanksgiving.

For our American readers enjoying the holiday tomorrow, Meghan Trainor is here to fill in the gap. The “All About That Bass” singer hopes her tracks about missing her flight, racist Granny and other awkward topics about Turkey Day will become new holiday classics.

Sadly, the the album is just part of a skit for Jimmy Kimmel Live! Who else things this faux album could be a potential hit? Check out the hilarious commercial below.

Kinda of a random bunch, isn’t it? Especially KISS‘ inclusion. I never thought I’d see the day the legendary rock band would take part in the family-friendly affair, but that day is here.

Organizers have announced the full line-up taking part in the 88th annual Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. The magic Parade’s famed line-up this year features 16 giant character balloons; 33 novelty/ornament balloons, balloonicles, balloonheads and trycaloons; 27 floats; 1,300 cheerleaders and dancers; 1000 clowns; 12 marching bands; and a host of celebrity performers. Making their debuts as giant balloons are Paddington Bear, Pokémon’s Pikachu, Pillsbury Doughboy, the Red Power Ranger, Eruptor from Skylanders, and Thomas the Tank Engine. Check out the full list of performers below.

“This is a record breaking year for the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, as we debut the largest new cast of giant character balloons ever assembled, along with five amazing new floats. Tens of millions of spectators will be amazed by what we have in store,” said Amy Kule, executive producer of Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. “In addition to an incredible line up of celebrity performers, America’s best high school and college marching bands, hundreds of dancers, cheerleaders, clowns, and balloon handlers, we are adding some new layers of interactivity to the Parade for the first time this year. From live cameras on a float capturing special moments along the route to incredible 360-degree panoramic photos where fans can find themselves part the action, and finally, through our Confetti Carpet, the behind the scenes look at the starting line with our celebrity performers; we are bringing the Macy’s Parade closer to audiences in New York City and in homes across the country.”

Happy Thanksgiving To Our Canadian Readers

Canadians celebrate Thanksgiving a full month before our US counterparts. A few of my American friends find it odd that we enjoy Turkey Day before Halloween. Personally, I love having a greater gap between Thanksgiving and Christmas. Makes for a much longer and enjoyable holiday season.

Over the weekend, Brian and I held our third annual Friendsgiving dinner. It’s one of my favorite parties I hold the entire year. I definitely paid the price Sunday ;) Everyone gets in the spirit and brings a tasty dish and bottles of wine. Since we moved my office upstairs of our downtown condo, we held dinner downstairs for the first time. It was quite nice not having to lug up all the dishes and drinks up and down the stairs throughout the night.

Check out a couple of photos from the night below. Happy Thanksgiving to everyone celebrating the holiday today. Feel free to follow me on Instagram.

Last night on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon, the Thanksgiving holiday was celebrated in an awesome parody of several of the top songs of the year in a one big holiday medley. The song was performed by Jimmy Fallon and special guest Rachida Jones (Parks & Recreation). The two combine today’s biggest hits with various holiday themes to come up with one instant classic. Here are the songs that they parody (in order):

  • 1. “What Makes You Beautiful” by One Direction
  • 2. “Call Me Maybe” by Carly Rae Jepsen
  • 3. “Somebody That I Used To Know” by Gotye
  • 4. “Gangnam Style” by PSY
  • 5.? “Whistle” by Flo Rida
  • 6. “Diamonds” by Rihanna
  • 7. “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together” by Taylor Swift
  • 8. “Some Nights” by fun.

For example, “You Don’t Know You’re Beautiful” lyrics become, “You don’t know you’re really full” and “Call Me Maybe” becomes, “Pass the gravy,” etc. One of my favorites was “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together” modified into, “We are never, ever, ever, wearing ugly sweaters.” LOL. Watch the hilarious segment below.

This year, Americans are embarking on the earliest Black Friday ever with Walmart and a bunch of other retailers opening their doors at 8:OOpm on Thanksgiving Day (Thursday, November 22) as opposed to 4am or 5am in past years, and last year creeping to midnight for the first time.

In this new Funny or Die video, former Desperate Housewives star Teri Hatcher plays Rebecca Tyler, a wife and mother serving Thanksgiving dinner while she prepares her family for the earliest Black Friday in the history of anything ever. Her husband Nate, played by Tom Arnold, expresses that he thinks she’s overreacting but since he’s never participated in a Black Friday, she puts him in his place and asks him, “So you don’t know what it is like to sit in the electronics department of a Walmart, holding a woman so badly beaten and bruised that she is begging you to break her neck?” He responds, “Um, that never happened.” She then says, “Well it could and I’m prepared for it.” Her daughter asks if mommy will go to jail, but Rebecca informs her that all laws are suspended on Black Friday.

Watch the video below. Are any of you participating in Black Friday and if so are you attending on Thanksgiving Day, or Black Friday proper?

Last night, Lindsay Lohan was on The Tonight Show With Jay Leno to promote the premiere of Liz & Dick which airs this coming Sunday, November 25. Lohan was just on The Today Show last week and did a brief skit on Jimmy Fallon before that.

As you probably already know, that fact that Lohan canceled on doing an interview with Barbara Walters and then scheduled in Jay Leno didn’t make Barbara very happy. Jay Leno wasted no time and asked about this whole situation at the beginning of the interview. Lohan explained that it wasn’t the right timing and that when she’s ready to sit down for that type of interview, Barbara, who she said she is a big fan of, will be the first person she calls.

Later in the interview, they talked about all of the crazy tabloid rumors, as well as one story that is true and that is that she just found out while on The Today Show that her father (Michael Lohan) did have another child and that Lindsay has a half-sister. Lindsay said about the situation that if she could offer the girl any advice, that is, “Good luck with my dad.” Check out some of the clips from the interview below.

Oh. Em. Gee. Just when I started to forget about that time period where Rebecca Black and several other girls that came after her became viral video hits for their cheesy music videos, a new one comes out of nowhere. The song called “It’s Thanksgiving” was written and produced by Patrice Wilson, the man responsible for all of the other ones as well.

The singer is Nicole Westbrook and just like Rebecca Black reminded us about the days of the week, Westbrook reminds us about the major holidays throughout the year and that now, “It’s Thanksgiving“. My favorite part is when she raps at the dinner table: “Yo, it’s thanksgiving, giving and I’m trying to be forgivin’ / Nothin’ is forbidden, that you know we gotta have / I gotta give thanks to you and you and you / Can’t be hateful, gotta be grateful / Gotta be grateful, can’t be hateful / Mash potatoes on my, on my table.” LOL.

Watch the video below for a good laugh and/or to get you in the mood for Thanksgiving Dinner later this month. Oh, and one more thing: she sings into a turkey leg as a microphone.
