Dave Price and Maggie Rodriguez of CBS News' "The Early Show" host this CBS Thanksgiving tradition which features the 82nd annual Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade live from New York. Also featured are performances by country music duo Sugarland and the Broadway casts of "Mary Poppins" and "Grease." Guests include Clay Aiken and CBS Daytime drama stars Jessica Leccia ("Guiding Light") and Julie Pinson ("As the World Turns").
"American Idol" finalist Clay Aiken, is back on Broadway in Monty Python's Spamalot.
This is all part of CBS's yuletide season programming.
NBC will also broadcast the 82nd Annual Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade on Nov. 27, and the network has just finalized the list of performers, which includes Miley Cyrus, David Archuleta, Kristin Chenoweth, James Taylor, the Cheetah Girls, Darius Rucker, Trace Adkins, and...900 clowns! The Manhattan-based festivities — which will be hosted by a Today triumvirate of Meredith Vieira, Matt Lauer, and Al Roker — airs from 9 a.m. to noon.
The Parade begins at 77th St and Central Park West. It proceeds to Columbus Circle and turns onto Broadway. The Parade marches down Broadway and turns west on 34th street, just past Macy's herald Square. The Parade finishes on 7th Avenue.
