CBS Studios wishes fans a Happy Thanksgiving with a fun tweet. Find out what your favorite characters pair best with this holiday!

Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays. Yes, the food and the company are great. But, there is something about getting to watch all my favorite television shows with my mom. The combination is something special!

To get us in the holiday spirit, CBS Studios is sharing their favorite character/food pairings. With every pairing comes a fun reasoning behind the combination. Which “NCIS” character pairs best with cranberry sauce? What about mashed potatoes? Let’s take a look!

CBS Studios pairs Marty Deeks character with cranberry sauce. They describe the Eric Christian Olsen as “a wild card. You don’t exactly know how it’s made but it brings a tart sweetness to the whole Thanksgiving forkful and makes every bite interesting.” Fans are in agreement that the “NCIS: Los Angeles” character is a perfect fit.

My favorite pairing is Frank Reagan and turkey! Classic and dependable, the “Blue Bloods” character is combined with the centerpiece of most Thanksgiving tables: “The glue that holds the Thanksgiving table together and should be respected as such. There would be no Turkey Day without it.” Looking at Tom Selleck’s career, this pairing fits the bill.

Fan-Favorite Pairings

Fans are commenting their favorite pairings as well. Most appreciate the gravy and pie combinations! Sara and Grissom from “CSI: Vegas” match these popular dishes. Fans love Sara for her sweet and dependable side, matches the pumpkin pie. Grissom’s character is compared to gravy: “Unassuming with main character energy. Has the ability to enhance everything it touches.” Fans love the couple and it shows.

“Gravy and pie for this fan,” @4realkaylab writes with a cute emoji.

“Love me some gravy and pie,” @NSimperl adds.

Thanksgiving night is the perfect time to find a blanket and watch your favorite CBS shows.
