I’d like to wish all TVaholic readers a Happy Thanksgiving and say thank you for you visiting the site, subscribing to the email list, and/or following on Twitter, etc. I hope you find the daily picks helpful.

If you will be doing any holiday shopping at Amazon over the weekend, it would be great if you would use the following link: Shop Amazon – Black Friday Deals Week – Big Savings, No Waiting. This is an affiliate link, which means TVaholic gets a small percentage for referring customers and you get the same great deals as if you’d gone to the site directly. As Michael Scott might say, this is a Win-Win-Win situation for all involved. Thanks again for reading and enjoy your weekend.
