CBS and NBC (9 a.m.-noon ET)

Turkey day parades, stuffed with special acts and dished up by celebrity hosts, gobble up the morning. Larry Hagman and Linda Gray of Dallas hold forth in CBS' "bubble" anchor booth, where they'll cover five parades from New York to Hawaii (bypassing Texas, alas). On NBC, Today show host Bryant Gumbel and Real People's Sarah Purcell emcee the Macy's parade in Manhattan from start to Santa Claus finish.
