On Thanksgiving Day, Thursday, Nov. 22, CNN will broadcast five of its most popular CNN: Special Investigations Unit and CNN Presents documentaries, featuring anchors Larry King, Sanjay Gupta, Soledad O’Brien and Don Lemon.

The 12-hour marathon begins at 1 p.m. with all times Eastern:

Brown’s career and life reflected the culture and politics of the times in which he lived.

· CNN: Special Investigations Unit – Fed Up: America’s Killer Diet – (Airs 3 p.m. to 4 p.m.; 9 p.m. to 10 p.m.; and on Friday, Nov. 23, from midnight to 1 a.m.) – Just in time for the holiday of excessive eating, CNN chief medical correspondent Dr. Sanjay Gupta reports on the surprising science behind how nutrition affects the body and brain – and how unhealthy food remains central to the American diet despite growing consumer awareness about health.

· CNN: Special Investigations Unit – Chasing Life – (Airs 4 p.m. to 5 p.m.; and on Friday, Nov. 23, from 1 a.m. to 2 a.m.) – In a documentary based upon his book also called Chasing Life, Gupta reveals whether there is a longevity gene; whether cutting calories or exercise contributes more to a longer life; if anti-aging supplements are a waste of money; if stem cell therapy can reverse or stop the aging process and much more.

· CNN Presents: Larry King – 50 Years of Pop Culture – (Airs 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. and on Friday, Nov. 23 from 2 a.m. to 4 a.m.) – CNN anchor Anderson Cooper and American Idol’s Ryan Seacrest guide viewers on a two-hour tribute to Larry King. King’s family, icons, pals and celebrities – including former President George H.W. Bush, Mariah Carey, Walter Cronkite, Mark Geragos, Jon Bon Jovi, Kermit the Frog and Dolly Parton – offer insights into King’s life and his place as an American institution.

· CNN: Special Investigations Unit – Danger: Poisoned Food – (Airs 8 p.m. to 9 p.m.) Gupta journeys from the fields to the dinner table to diagnose how tainted spinach, lettuce, chicken and other foods enter the food supply, how the dangers can be avoided and how federal interventions and guidelines currently under debate offer protection.

Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours! I hope your holiday is filled with love, happiness, friendship and fun! ~Sheryn

I can't believe CNN is showing Fed Up: America’s Killer Diet in the middle of the afternoon when people are eating. It was a good SIU, but after seeing it I didn't want to eat any!!! If you want to enjoy your thanksgiving dinner, turn the TV off when that one is on...LOL!!!
