Don't stop till you get enough

It's a day of bingeing on food, so why not do the same when it comes to TV? "Castle" (9 a.m., TNT) gets a 13-hour marathon while "NCIS" (5 a.m., USA) goes for 24 hours. Have a shot every time Mark Harmon slaps Michael Weatherly upside the head and you'll have yourself a groggy Thanksgiving.

Family feud

If your family starts to get fed up with each other this holiday weekend, just thank your lucky stars that it'll never get as bad as it did for the "Hatfields & McCoys" (5 p.m., History), the six-hour miniseries that's getting a rebroadcast. Kevin Costner and Tom Berenger both snared Emmys for their work.

ø I love a parade

"Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade" (8 a.m., WCCO, Ch. 4; 9 a.m., KARE, Ch. 11) always manages to bring together an odd assortment of celebrities and this year is no exception. Among the float riders: Martina McBride, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Henry Winkler, Carly Rae Jepsen and Ed Asner.
