The Macy'sd Thanksgiving day parade joins the Olympics on NBC's list of dull and crippled events at 9am Thursday.

Anybody know any straight streaming without the garbage and ads?
thanks

Does KTLA even run the Tournament of Roses Parade w/o commercials anymore? They did for many years.

Stephanie (something or other) has been doing it so long that her contract requires the station replenish her teeth semi-annually.

Is this a strong arm attempt to get people to sign up for the trial of Peacock+?

But what about the scintillating scripted banter and bad dad-jokes from the network host personalities? You can’t miss that!

Just so there's no misunderstanding:

I think the Macy's parade is wonderful. The sight of the huge balloons looming up above you in the canyon-like streets, the constant flow of marching bands and the well-constructed floats are a delight to the eye. (One might question the presence of 'Baby Boss", however). That's one of the reasons the parade brought hundreds of thousands (millions?) to the streets before TV.

The ill-conceived NBC dubbed over music, back to the booth, modified Today show is nothing like the actual parade.

I recommend going to the parade to everyone. It's fun spectacle on an extraordinary scale.

Kids are excited to watch. I record every year thinking I will watch it later with no commercials but never do.



Ukulele music I couldn't find anywhere else.
I’ve added some recipes and spiritual thoughts as well.

I put it on for the first time in a decade or more -- gahhhhhhh. What happened to the parade? aIt was a 2 hour commercial for anything remotely associated to NBC

better or worse than root canal?

I got a call last week about doing it.

"Fritz, I know what your probably gonna say, but I'm desperate ..... "
"I'm sorry, not a f'kn chance."
"I didn't even finish my sentence ..."
"Like I said, not a f'kn chance."

It's not because the show is crap. Much of network TV the last decade is crap. It's coz the prods are young @#$%& fools what think they're "creating" art.

They're just creating commerce as you have observed.

It'll happen again for NY Eve.

I'd rather watch a 24 hr marathon of Ellen Disingenuous.
