Any TV-comedy lover looks forward to the holiday episodes. Every year I wind up scouring through Netflix and Hulu looking for the Thanksgiving episodes, but this year I decided “no more!” I’ve compiled all the Thanksgiving episodes of my favorite sitcoms, old and new. 

And, if that weren’t enough for your viewing pleasure, I’ve also picked my favorite Thanksgiving episode from each show. Enjoy and don’t forget to put meat seasoned with peas and onions in your trifle!

Life in Pieces

Season 1, Episode 8 – “Godparent Turkey Corn Farts ” 

Season 3, Episode 4 – “Testosterone Martyr Baked Knife” 

Best Life in Pieces Thanksgiving Episode of All Time….
Tie between the two episodes! Seriously who can forget the throw-away jokes from Season 1 where Tim and Sofia go to the Mexican market for a “little turkey” and come back with a live one. We still quote, “No honey, don’t touch the macheti, yours is the little one” in our house on a weekly basis. But in Season 3, you can’t beat Sam’s baked speech about corn and how she keeps winding up in the neighbor’s house.

Best Gilmore Girls Thanksgiving Episode of All Time….
Hands down Season 3, Episode 9 “A Deep-Fried Korean Thanksgiving.” This is where we get the classic line…..”We’re going to eat and eat and eat and eat and eat and eat.” If you don’t quote that line on Thanksgiving Day I don’t know if I want to know you.
