Just like that, Thanksgiving week is upon us here in the United States!
As such, the Macy’s Thanksgiving Parade in New York City will be on several networks this week, November 23rd. But there are still a few non-Thanksgiving notables airing very soon.
The series finale of Fear the Walking Dead kicks off the week with two last episodes on AMC and AMC+.
The sequel to Nickelodeon’s 1997 film Good Burger, Good Burger 2 debuts on Paramount+ during the middle of the week.
We can’t forget about our four-legged friends: The National Dog Show streams on NBC and Peacock on Thanksgiving Day.
Invincible on Amazon Prime Video concludes its second season later in the week.
And lastly, the week itself ends nicely with a (certain) doctor visiting us via time and space. That’s right, The Doctor is back in a “special” way, and playing him again is the talented and ever-popular David Tennant! Catherine Tate also returns to play Donna Noble! Fans can catch the special Doctor Who: The Star Beast on Disney+!
Quickly in some entertainment news: Emma Stone will host Saturday Night Live on December 2nd, Creed 4 is happening, Dune 2 will now premiere on March 1st (2024), and Alexandra Byrne is the costume designer for Fantastic Four. Also, Peter Cullen (the original voice of Optimus Prime) will get a lifetime achievement award from the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences very soon!
That’s all for this week! As always, do note that times / dates are subject to change anytime by any streaming services and/or cable companies. Lastly, don’t forget to follow the blog on Facebook, Mastodon, and X.
