CBS 11 & TXA 21 Programming Notes For Thanksgiving

Follow CBSDFW.COM: Facebook | Twitter

I have a couple of programming notes that I want to make sure you know about for the Thanksgiving Holiday (listed by station):


We will kick off with the annual Thanksgiving Parade live from New York from 8am-11am. Hosted by Entertainment Tonight's Kevin Frazier, the holiday special will feature portions from the 89th annual Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade, as well as performances by Broadway productions of Jersey Boys and Beautiful: The Carole King Musical.

At 2pm, we will air an encore of the series "Deep Blue" featuring the life of Jason Witten from his beginnings to his success today as a Dallas Cowboy.

At 3pm, James Brown & Company host the NFL Today followed by the Carolina Panthers @ Dallas Cowboys game at 3:30pm, with Jim Nantz, Phil Simms, and Tracy Wolfson.


CBS Sports will present the SEC on CBS with Missouri at Arkansas starting at 1:30pm. The scheduling of this game, however, triggers the preemption of Let's Make A Deal across the country for all CBS stations. It will return on Monday, November 30th on CBS11 at 9am.


TXA21 will be airing a High School Football Postseason game on Friday, 11/27, from 6-9pm. Our game will be the Allen Eagles vs the Arlington Martin Warriors. We are scheduled to start at 6pm but there is possibility the game could start a few minutes early, which in that case we will leave the 5:30pm Jeopardy (which is a rerun) to join the start of the game.

For those of you who are Jeopardy and Millionaire fans, these shows (which are current season shows), normally seen 6-7pm, will be seen after the game starting at 9pm.

From our family to yours, we hope you have a safe and Happy Thanksgiving!! See you next time.
