Independence Day weekend is once again upon us, and in-between the firework-watching, beer-drinking, hamburger-and hot dog-eating, and other traditional displays of patriotism, you may find yourself in need of some TV to watch. Look no further, because TheWrap's got it all mapped out. Here's what to watch this weekend, from the third season premiere of "Stranger Things" to the "Macy's 4th of July Fireworks Spectacular."
Thursday, July 4 - "Stranger Things" - 12am on Netflix Sure, fireworks are cool, but let's be honest -- THIS is the real event of the weekend. Prepare to be reunited with Eleven, Mike, Steve Harrington, Hopper, the Byers, the Demadogs, and everybody else in Hawkins, Indiana -- and it's upside-down counterpart.
July 4 - "Macy's 4th of July Fireworks Spectacular" - 8/7c on NBC Watch the largest Independence Day fireworks display in the nation -- all broadcast live from the Brooklyn Bridge in New York. The fireworks are scheduled to kick off around 9:20 p.m. EST, and a film score highlighting classic American cinema will play in the background as those big sparklies light up the night sky.
July 4 - "Let Freedom Sing" - 10/9c on CMT Brett Eldredge is headlining the show this year, airing live from Nashville's Broadway Stage on 5th and Broadway.
