It’s Thanksgiving! But this is also Law and order Thursday for NBC. Generally, when it comes to Turkey Day programming, there is a programming switch. The network is one of the houses where Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade is broadcast live, which is a big event in New York and countless families across the country.
Later in the day, a football game is usually played on some screen (or several) when dinner is over or when the family gathers around the TV to share a meal and cheer for their favorite team. There are games that you can play in the evening.
Is that the case with today’s NBC prime time schedule? Here’s what we know about what’s streaming online and how it will affect Law and order shows!
