As I write this I’m further procrastinating on packing for my Thanksgiving trip. I mean, I’ve still got … four hours and forty minutes till flight time. Nothing to worry about! Also today starts the last few days I get to ignore the upcoming Christmas season, as I’m one of the few people I know who absolutely loathes to prepare for Christmas before American Thanksgiving is over. After Thursday I’ll be free to start gift planning, decorating my room, and enjoying specially flavored beverages from overpriced coffee chains. Until Thursday, it’s all about the food. Luckily there are several Thanksgiving-themed episodes happening tonight:
8:00 p.m.: “Dancing With The Stars” on ABC, special 90-minute episode.
“Heroes” on NBC.
“Surviving the Holidays with Lewis Black” on History.
“House” on FOX.
“How I Met Your Mother” on CBS. The episode is called “Slapsgiving 2: Revenge of the Slap” which probably means something to those of you who follow this show.
8:30 p.m.: “Accidentally on Purpose” on CBS.
“Monday Night Football: Tennessee Titans at Houston Texans” on ESPN.
9:00 p.m.: “Trauma” on ABC.
“Two and a Half Men” on CBS.
“Lie to Me” on FOX.
9:30 p.m.: “Big Bang Theory” on CBS.
“Find My Family” on ABC. Series premiere, but I’ve seen commercials for this and does it strike anyone else that this show has the potential to go terribly terribly wrong? Some people don’t want to be found, you know? That’s why they left / gave up the child / whatever in the first place. Which is sad for whoever got left behind, but it’s a lot more upsetting to try and “reconnect” with someone who really doesn’t want you around.
10:00 p.m.: “Castle” on ABC.
“CSI: Miami” on CBS.
“The Jay Leno Show” on NBC.
