Thanksgiving Holiday Watch List (Nov. 26-28): "The Price Is Right", "Let’s Make A Deal", "Millionaire" and GSN Marathons

On Thanksgiving Eve (Wednesday, November 26) during CBS daytime, The Price Is Right and Let’s Make A Deal will be celebrating the holiday with special Thanksgiving-themed episodes. On Let’s Make A Deal, contestants will be dressed as turkeys, pilgrims and pumpkins and will play themed games including a 3-Turkey Deal for big bucks and games involving a Turkey hotline and a giant pumpkin that has apparently caught the eye of the "hungry" cast. As a special bonus, the studio audience will receive a family heirloom cookbook project featuring tools and directions on how to create your own cookbook filled with family recipes. Check your local listings for air times.

Meanwhile on The Price Is Right, the long-running daytime game show will be celebrating the holiday season as well by giving away thousands of dollars in cash and prizes including a special Showcase featuring a food journey around the world presented by celebrity chef Susan Feniger. The grand prize package contains trips  to Los Angeles, the Riviera Maya and Singapore. Check out the special Thanksgiving Showcase in the clip below (WARNING: CLIP CONTAINS SPOILERS)

Additionally, on “Cyber” Monday, December 1, this show will be holding an interactive home viewer contest to give entrants a chance to win all six one-bid items featured on the episode. The prizes include the following:
  • Apple iPhone 6 (16GB) and a pair of Beats headphones
  • Helen Ficalora turquoise stacking ring
  • Canon Powershot point and shoot 16 megapixel camera
  • Two pairs of Woodzee sunglasses
  • Cuisinart juice extractor
  • Trip to Las Vegas: Three night stay for two with show tickets

Jerry Springer on Millionaire (November 26)
Building on the theme of Millionaire's Daytime Talk Show Week, Jerry Springer will be stopping by the set to play for $1 million for his charity, The Cleveland Clinic. Check your local listings for air times and don't forget to tune-in tomorrow to watch him play the game of his life against 14 menacing questions. On a quick end note, Jerry Springer returns to GSN Wednesday, January 7 at 9:00pm EST to host brand new episodes of Baggage: On The Road.

GSN Holiday Marathons (November 27 & 28)
Although GSN has no plans in store of airing an astounding array of classic game shows as they have done in the past with the 2002 "Feast of Favorites” and 2007 "Viewers’ Choice" marathons, the network will still observe the holiday with a series of marathons on Thanksgiving Day and Friday. On Thursday from 1:00pm-7:00pm EST, GSN will be airing a seven-hour marathon of The Chase, hosted by Brooke Burns and starring Mark “The Beast” Labbett. 

On Friday beginning at 8:00am EST, a series of marathons will be airing throughout the day and evening. The schedule is as follows: 
  • 8:00am-12:00pm: Game Show Moments Gone Bananas
  • 1:00pm-8:00pm: Family Feud (Harvey)
  • 8:00pm-10:00pm: The Newlywed Game (Shepherd)
