    Nashville and The Tomorrow People not on tonight?

    Will be watching just CSI then.

  3. Joey says:

    The Soup and Burning Love.

  4. Chablis says:

    Any chance ABC has to air reruns they do. And they wonder why Nashville struggles.

    • DenverDean says:

      You know if ABC ran Nashville tonight, everyone would be screaming that ABC is trying to kill it by airing it the night before Thanksgiving when everyone is: 1) traveling; 2) cooking; 3) whatever other reason. The ratings for tonight’s shows historically have been marked as “specials” and don’t count in season ratings. Last year, CSI and CM both got big numbers but its easier for procedurals to do that they serials.

  5. Tran 2.0 says:

    SNL Thanksgiving. BTW, Revolution returns January 8th.

  6. Justin says:

    Just Criminal Minds

  7. Steve F. says:

    Think I’ll check out Lego Star Wars, and maybe the SNL Thanksgiving.

  8. keith says:
