THE RUNDOWN: Friday, November 18, Saturday, November 19, & Sunday, November 20

FRIDAY

ABC
8:00 Extreme Makeover: Home Edition
9:00 Extreme Makeover: Home Edition
10:00 20/20
ABC has two episodes of Extreme Makeover: Home Edition and then 20/20. Makeover hit a series low last week and it might pop back up a little but not much.
Prediction:  Makeover 8:00 - 4.5 million, 0.9/Makeover 9:00 - 5.6 million, 1.3/2020 - 5.1 million, 1.1

CBS
8:00 A Gifted Man #8 "In Case of Missed Communications"
9:00 CSI: NY #170 "Crossroads"
10:00 Blue Bloods #30 "Thanksgiving"
CBS is all new with its regular lineup. Like most CBS lineups, expect steady numbers.
Prediction: Gifted - 8.5 million, 1.2/CSI NY - 9.9 million, 1.6/Bloods - 11.2 million, 1.8

NBC
8:00 Chuck #82 "Chuck Versus the Business Trip"
9:00 Grimm #4 "Lonelyhearts"
10:00 Dateline NBC
NBC is all new. Chuck should be steady and low. Grimm has been falling since its promising debut. I think it will start to stabilize but it may drop another tenth or so.
Prediction: Chuck - 3.0 million, 0.9/Grimm - 4.9 million, 1.5/Dateline - 4.4 million, 1.3

FOX
8:00 Kitchen Nightmares
9:00 Fringe #72 "Wallflower"
FOX is all new as well. Kitchen Nightmares should be steady. Fringe hit a series low last week. It may be able to pop back up a bit this week, but not much.
Prediction: Nightmares - 3.8 million, 1.5/Fringe - 3.2 million, 1.2

SATURDAY

ABC
8:00 College Football

CBS
8:00 The Big Bang Theory #70 "The Apology Insufficiency" (REPEAT)
8:30 2 Broke Girls #2 "And the Break-Up Scene" (REPEAT)
9:00 The Mentalist #48 "Cackle-Bladder Blood" (REPEAT)
10:00 48 Hours Mystery


NBC
8:00 Harry's Law #20 "Insanity" (REPEAT)
9:00 Prime Suspect #8 "Underwater" (REPEAT)
10:00 Law & Order: SVU #278 "True Believers" (REPEAT)


FOX
8:00 Cops
8:30 Cops
9:00 Terra Nova #3 "What Remains"


SUNDAY


ABC
7:00 Countdown to the American Music Awards (SPECIAL)
8:00 39th Annual American Music Awards (SPECIAL)
ABC's regular lineup is preempted tonight for the American Music Awards. If the CMA Awards are any indication for awards season trends, it should be pretty even to last year.
Prediction: AMAs - 11.9 million, 4.4


CBS
7:00 60 Minutes
8:00 The Amazing Race
9:00 The Good Wife #55 "Whiskey Tango Foxtrot"
10:00 CSI: Miami #222 "A Few Dead Men"
CBS is all new but it has a doubleheader NFL game this week so the lineup will likely be delayed in some time zones. The numbers should be similar to the last time there was an NFL overrun.
Prediction: 60 Mins - 17.5 million, 3.8/Race - 11.4 million, 3.1/Wife - 10.5 million, 2.0/Miami - 10.2 million, 2.1


NBC
7:00 Football Night in America
8:30 Sunday Night Football: Philadelphia at New York Giants
NBC has a game that could be good on Sunday night and will probably be highly rated. I'd expect similar numbers to last weeks Jets-Patriots game.

FOX
7:00 The Cleveland Show #28 "Another Bad Thanksgiving" (REPEAT)
7:30 The Cleveland Show #47 "Skip Day"
8:00 The Simpsons #492 "The Book Job"
8:30 Allen Gregory #4 "Interracial McAdams"
9:00 Family Guy #171 "Thanksgiving"
9:30 American Dad! #120 "Virtual In-Stanity"
FOX is all new with a full toon lineup and no NFL overrun in most areas. I'd expect numbers to be down for the first part of the night. Family Guy could perk up with a Thanksgiving episode and American Dad! could follow suit.
Prediction: Cleveland 7:30 - 4.0 million, 1.3/Simpsons - 6.6 million, 3.0/Gregory - 4.0 million, 1.9/Family - 6.5 million, 3.3/Dad - 5.2 million, 2.5
