Thanksgiving will provide a reminder that TV isn’t dead yet. It is still a national pastime, especially when it comes to live events such as parades and football games.

+ Thanksgiving is one of the biggest days of the year for one of the biggest brands in the world. And that means you’ll be watching a lot of commercials. During the average NFL game, viewers get to watch about 11 minutes of actual action (and about 100 commercials).
