The holidays are all about spending quality time with loved ones and feeling, well, thankful. That said, it’s really easy to run out of things to chat about these days, and I guarantee most of us will find ourselves this Thanksgiving not just around the table but also in front of the TV. Instead of just watching football, check out these 5 TV shows that guarantee belly laughs and even some sweet relief amongst any holiday madness.

Sex and the City


If you’ve been living under a weighted blanket (rightly so) and haven’t heard the good news, Carrie Bradshaw is officially making her comeback to our televisions December 9. Ahead of the And Just Like That premiere, go back to the very beginning to remind yourself just how far Ms. Bradshaw and her besties have come. A grand total of 94 episodes plus two movies — your holiday just got that much more fabulous.

Ted Lasso

Apple TV+

After winning big during last awards season, Ted Lasso is still the talk of the town and should be added to everyone’s watch list. Full of ups and downs, the show follows Jason Sudeikis as an American football coach hired to lead a British soccer team. The protagonist is one of television’s most beloved and a champion of optimism and biscuits (if you know, you know).



Want to know what it looks like when a disgustingly rich CEO announces to his four children he might be considering retirement? Welcome to Succession. The show, now in its third season, is provocative and hilarious, and paints a thrilling portrait of the members of a highly dysfunctional dynasty playing by their own agendas without mercy.

The Great British Baking Show


Nothing sparks more joy in my life than when a new season of The Great British Baking Show begins. This season’s 10-week competition sticks to its standard format, and the home bakers have turned out to be some of the best the series has ever seen. Bask in the meditative ambiance the baking tent offers to escape any holiday chaos.

Love Life


Packed with both humor and heartbreak, Love Life is a romantic comedy that follows the lives of interconnected millennials as they journey to find their soulmates. Set in New York City, each season spans a timeline of several years, detailing the lessons the characters learn in each relationship that may or may not be routing them closer to their “person.”
