What’s One of the Best Things About Thanksgiving? Leftovers!
Family, friends, food, and a few days off work … what’s not to love about Thanksgiving? Whether you’re cooking the food or simply enjoying the feast, Thanksgiving meals undoubtedly offer something for everyone. But according to those uber-reliable Harris Poll folks, for some, it’s what comes after the meal that really strikes their fancy. Nearly eight in ten think having a fridge full of leftovers is the best thing about hosting Thanksgiving. This could also explain why seven in ten disagree with the notion that they’d rather eat in a restaurant than cook Thanksgiving dinner.
What’s the star of the traditional table? Turkey, of Course.
It rules the roost on which traditional dish most looked forward to at Thanksgiving, followed by stuffing and pumpkin pie. That doesn’t mean feasters aren’t open to trying alternatives to the traditional roasted recipe. Half of Americans show an interest in grilling, deep frying or trying a turducken – a chicken inside a duck inside a turkey, for the uninitiated.
Ever Wondered, “How Did THAT Show Get On The Air?”
Of course, Turkey day TV-watching is tradionally devoted to Thanksgiving parades and dozing to football, natch. But if you ever wondered, how did THAT show get on the air? You’re not alone. Instead of relying on the opinions of more than 200 million television viewers, broadcast and cable networks put their trust in fewer than 500 executives to decide which shows get made. But now, TV audiences will get to speak their minds and networks will be able to improve their success rate by using I’d Watch That (www.idwt.com), a viewer-driven online platform to identify, finance and develop quality content for broadcast and cable television networks.
I’d Watch That provides a meeting place for content creators, avid television fans and network executives to turn great ideas into reality via a 90-120 second pitch, or Sizzle. Randomly shown to reviewers, the system predicts which ideas have the best chance of connecting with a real audience and viewers have a say in what gets produced. Sounds like a win-win for everyone. And less “where’s the clicker-itis.”
