Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade

I think Jimmy Fallon's having a seizure!

Re: Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade

The ONLY thing I wanted to see (the Roots) was cut extremely short. Thanks, NBC.

And I want to give every cast member of the Green Day musical a severe beatdown.

Manheim Steamroller's music reminds me of the nerds in Revenge Of The Nerds.

The musical acts suck. Why can't they get the Glee cast on this? They would definitely fit the viewing demographic and I'm sure the crowd would love to see them.

I keep telling myself that one year I'll go see the parade in person. Then I see the crowd and remember why I don't. Unfortunately I can't watch much of it on TV because of the mindless blather from the hosts and the godawful lipsynching from the participants.

It's too bad they cut Arlo Guthrie's song short.

Glee is a FOX show, and all of the TV related stuff has to be from NBC. I don't know if that's how its always been, but for the past several years there hasn't been a single non-NBC show at the parade.

They were scheduled to perform last year and NBC nixed it.

Yeah, I used to love the parade. Nowadays, not so much. It's become a 3 hour commercial for NBC owned media.

I don't know about anyone else, but the HD for the parade was horrible!
