For obvious reasons, this Memorial Day weekend is going to be a bit different from previous years. But the good news is, you won’t have to experience FOMO for skipping out on the barbeque-and-beach days in order to stay inside and watch TV instead. That decision has been made for you. There will even be some live sports to watch, like a NASCAR race and a socially-distanced golf match between Tom Brady, Tiger Woods, Phil Mickelson and Peyton Manning. So allow us to list out the best options for what to watch (or stream) on TV (or your laptop) this weekend.
