5 Shows After Dark: Geekiest Thanksgiving Dinner Ever.
“It’s Christmas, Carol!” on Hallmark at 8:00pm ET. Original telefilm. For fuck’s sake, can we all at least pretend Thanksgiving is still a holiday in its own right as opposed to that big meal you eat to get you ready for 24 solid hours of Christmas shopping?
“Mythbusters” on Discovery at 8:00pm ET. NERD CROSSOVER ALERT! Alton Brown of “Good Eats” will be assisting on this episode with a variety of food-related myths, including trying to cook Thanksgiving dinner on a car engine. My greatest Thanksgiving related achievement is the time a friend of mine organized a pre-Thanksgiving turkey dinner for a club she organized at University, only to pick up the pre-cooked meal to find out it was all frozen solid, less than two hours before the meeting. We totally had that food ready and on the table when people started showing up. Don’t know if I could manage with a car engine though. Any of you have Thanksgiving hero stories?
“Dexter” on Showtime at 9:00pm ET.
“The Walking Dead” on AMC at 9:00pm ET.
“Homeland” on Showtime at 10:00pm ET.
Genevieve Burgess is very much looking forward to a tryptophan and pie induced coma later this week.
