Friends Thanksgiving Episodes: Touchdowns or Turkeys?

When you think of Thanksgiving, what comes to mind? Is it turkey on the table with all the trimmings or Monica's turkey stuck on Joey's head? Is it watching the Macy's Thanksgiving parade or when the Underdog float gets away? Is it uncomfortable dinners with your family or retroactively uncomfortable moments like when Brad Pitt totally hates Jennifer Aniston (er, we mean her character Rachel)? If you answered the latter to any of these, well take comfort in knowing you're not alone. For Friends fans, their Thanksgiving episodes are an essential part of the holiday. So we're running through all ten seasons worth of Thanksgiving episodes and deciding which ones were comedy touchdowns and which ones were total turkeys.

Best Friends Forever: What We'll Miss about the Best Cancelled Sitcom of the 2011-12 Season

While there are many already-canned shows from the 2011-2012 TV season that we won't miss, Best Friends Forever is decidedly not one of them. The NBC series only seemed to improve from the fairly strong pilot and I think it wrongly got clumped together with the season's gender-obsessed failures like Are You There, Chelsea? and Man Up!, just because it featured two adult female friends and a slightly overwhelmed dude. In reality, BFF was a fun and promising series that deserved a bit more room to breathe. NBC will be burning the last few episodes off next month, so before the network officially puts a pin in it, here's what I'll miss about the show.

Cougar Town and 8 Other Inappropriate Relationships in TV History

Tonight marks the Season 5 premiere of Cougar Town, a feat that seemed almost impossible a few years ago. You might even say as improbable as the ever-blossoming romance between Laurie (Busy Philipps) and Travis (Dan Byrd). Sorry, did I say improbable? I meant inappropriate. Sure, these are both consenting adults, their age gap isn't that wide and now that Jules (Courteney Cox) and Grayson (Josh Hopkins) have settled down the show needed a new love story to focus on, but still….ew. There's just something so inherently wrong about getting together with your best friend's grown son. But whether or not Laurie and Travis make this work (Jules could very well kill Laurie), they're still far from the only so-wrong-it's-wrong TV courtship. Let's take a look back, in no particular order, at some of the most memorable inappropriate relationships:

12 Days of Classic Christmas Episodes to Watch This Season

Forget Lords-a-Leaping or the Maids-a-Milking or whatever the heck Colly birds are. Since the 12 days of Christmas have three solid days at best (Day 5 of those Golden Rings sounds like a pretty good deal) we decided to pick an episode of television to correspond with each day instead. After all, the Christmas-themed episodes of shows like 30 Rock, M.A.S.H., and The O.C. are truly the gifts that keep on giving. So, all together now, here are the 12 Days of classic Christmas episodes to watch this and every season.

From seven strangers to a show about nothing, The Real Housewives of New York City are giving these classic New York programs a run for their money, with the designer labels to prove it.
