I'm still in a bad mood about Pushing Daisies, so I almost suggested everyone watch the Lawrence Welk Thanksgiving Special and a Knight Rider rerun. But I ate a cupcake and calmed down a little, so here's what I came up with instead:
Great Expectations (8pm, WRDC channel 12) - It's definitely not about the intelligence of ABC Programming Execs, it's a modern take on Dickens' classic novel. Starring Ethan Hawke and Gwenyth Paltrow.
Saturday Night Live (11:30pm, NBC) - Tim McGraw is the host, musical guests Ludacris and T-Pain. If it's like the rest of the season, expect one or two good skits and the rest will be weak. DVR and fast-forward.
And there's a college football game at noon between some local teams. I can't remember who ... um, who was that... Anyway, tune in to WRAL at noon, if you dare. By about 4pm, you'll either be very happy or you'll feel like I feel when I think about Pushing Daisies.
