November Sweeps may be coming to a close (Wednesday is the last official night), but that doesn't mean that the nets don't have a few final stunts up their sleeves! Here's what you should be on the lookout for this week: Monday How I Met Your Mother - Chris Elliott guest stars as Lily's father, PLUS it's the return of the Slap-Bet in a special, Thanksgiving-themed episode The Big Bang Theory - Geek fave Katee Sackhoff of Battlestar Galactica fame guests as a (fantasy) love interest for Wolowitz. Feel good reality series Find My Family premieres on ABC following Dancing with the Stars . We've also got Thanksgiving-themed episodes of Heroes , Trauma and House . Over on Lie to Me , however, it's already Christmas! Tuesday On ABC, it's the final new V (Reimagined Series) of the year. This is followed by the conclusion of this cycle of Dancing with the Stars . Wednesday On ABC, we've got Thanksgiving episodes of The Middle , Cougar Town and Modern Family , as well as the first new Eastwick in weeks! Fox is all new with the announcement of the So You Think You Can Dance Top 10, followed by a new episode of Glee . What are you looking forward to this week?
Thanksgiving's just around the corner, but no, Glee won't be off the air like almost everybody else. Thank heavens. I don't think we'd be able to cope with yet another interruption in episodes. Anyway, we've got a couple more sneak peeks from Wednesday night's episode, again courtesy of the folks at E! Online. This episode, by the way, is the one featuring rapper Eve as the head of the glee club for that school for female juvenile delinquents, which happens to be one of the teams New Directions goes up against in sectionals. They also happen to be, possibly, one of the teams to who Sue leaked their set list to. Oh, evil, evil Sue. And that's where video number one starts: Will giving Grace Hitchens a visit and ending up offering her McKinley High's auditorium as rehearsal space. A scrimmage, as he puts it. Source & Preview
This week's Coolest Moments (aka Top Moments) messed with our minds. The Prisoner made us feel dumb. Jennifer Morrison's departure from House made us sad. And CBS' random acts of pixelation during The Amazing Race made us wonder what they could possibly be hiding. Welcome to TV's Coolest Moments: Dazed and Confused Edition. 12. Worst Reveal: After five head-scratching hours of AMC 's The Prisoner , we learn that The Village basically exists inside the brain of Two's wife back in the real world. After Two's son, 11-12, kills his mom and hangs himself, a distraught Two (aka Mr. Curtis) convinces Six and the rest of the villagers that Six is the new leader and 313 is the dreamer whose brain will keep the utopia alive. So Six is No. 1? But he's dressed like Two? Who cares? 11. Best Reveal: How does Sons of Anarchy top Gemma's announcement that she's been raped? A guilt-ridden Tig tells Opie how and why Donna was killed. In a satisfying twist, a raging Opie shows mercy on Stahl and vows to keep the secret from the other brothers for the sake of the club. 10. Least Sincere Invitation: After vigorous prompting by Oprah Winfrey, Sarah Palin says she would like to have Levi Johnston, the father of her grandson, over for Thanksgiving. "Levi is a part of the family," she says. "This can all work out for good ... we don't have to keep going down this road of controversy and drama." 9. Worst Judgment: Yes, it's always best to tell the truth, but this week on Glee , was it really smart of Finn (I know, nothing about Finn is smart) to take it upon himself to tell Quinn's parents that she's knocked up... in song? For the blessed event, Finn chooses a heinous cover of Paul Anka's already lukewarm "You're Having My Baby." Needless to say, Quinn's folks throw her out of the house. 8. Best History Lesson: On Fringe , Olivia and Peter find evidence that the Observers have been around for a long time. In fact, familiar bald heads have been present at all kinds of historical events, including Marie-Antoinette's beheading, the Boston Massacre, and the assassination of Archduke Ferdinand, which started World War I. Worse still, the Observers think the next such major event will involve Olivia. To Read More Click Here .
The December 2nd episode of Glee revolves around the annual yearbook, but it fails to mention that the Glee club will be appearing in a commercial for a local mattress store, hence the name of the episode. FOX has released promo photos and a synopsis for the episode, which you can view below. Those pajamas look really comfy. I want a pair. THE GLEE CLUB JUMPS FOR JOY ON AN ALL-NEW GLEE ON WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 2, ON FOX When the Glee Club is left out of the yearbook because of budget cuts, everyone seems to be relieved that they won't have to suffer the ridicule of years past. Everyone except Rachel, that is, who wants her legacy cemented in print. Meanwhile, Quinn makes it her mission to be in the Cheerios yearbook photo, and Will and Terri's relationship is shaken to its core in the all-new Mattress episode of GLEE airing Wednesday, Dec. 2 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX. (GLE-112) (TV-14 D, L) Cast: Matthew Morrison as Will Schuester; Jessalyn Gilsig as Terri Schuester; Jane Lynch as Sue Sylvester; Lea Michele as Rachel Berry; Cory Monteith as Finn Hudson; Jayma Mays as Emma Pillsbury; Dianna Agron as Quinn; Chris Colfer as Kurt; Kevin McHale as Artie; Amber Riley as Mercedes; Mark Salling as Puck; Jenna Ushkowitz as Tina Guest Cast: Iqbal Theba as Principal Figgins; Patrick Gallagher as Ken Tanaka; Naya Rivera as Santana Lopez; John Ross Bowie as Dennis; Chuck Spitler as Randy Cusperberg; Bill A.

Egad, it's a Glee episode without Sue Sylvester! We may have missed her one-liners last night, but the absence wasn't glaring, for we still got a handful of comic moments--the idea of Rachel falling for Will just like that is still scary--and a lot of stories moving forward. Who would've thought that an unlikely pairing between Kurt and the love of his life, Finn, would result in Finn finally telling her parents about her pregnancy? We should've seen the fallout from the moment her dad started watching Glenn Beck. Who would've thought that the same pair-up would lead to Puck admitting to Mercedes that he is the father of the baby? Would you believe it's all part of Kurt's plan to have Finn cry on his shoulder pads? Me neither. Glee continued its streak of damn good episodes--in a satisfying way rather than a laugh-out-loud way--thanks to a couple of dramatic scenes between Finn and her mom, who also just found out about the pregnancy, and the one with Quinn's parents, which was quite uncomfortable to watch. There goes my heart again, going out to Quinn--whenever she cries, I have the urge to do so, too. Ouch. Don't worry, next week, we get Sue back, fresh from leaking New Directions' set list... Last night was also chock-full of music: six tracks, already available for download on iTunes, and also on the second Glee CD, which hits stores next month. Here goes the full versions then, including Rachel's "Crush", which benefits from not being interrupted by a freaked out Will. Ready, gleeks? Source & Music Here
The Glee cast wanted to know if we, the TV journalists with our fingers on the pulse of the pop-culture beat, thought this show would connect with a large enough audience to prevent it from tap dancing to an early grave. They seemed genuinely concerned that America wouldn't get what they were doing and would throw a metaphorical slushie in their faces. Cut to almost a year later, where Cory Monteith is holding court at Toronto's only five-star hotel on the final leg of a seemingly endless promotional tour which has taken him from the malls of America to his hometown of Calgary - where he won over crowds at last weekend's Gemini awards - and everywhere in between.

It will be one hair-rising event of " Glee " next week when McKinley High gets into competition with the other Glee Clubs. Concerned that Sue is up to no good, Will pays a visit to an instructor of a competing Glee Club to see what information Sue may be leaking, which leads to the club getting a look at their hair-rising competition. The episode airing November 25 is guest starring Eve as the instructor of the rival club. Among the members of her team are the fourth season contestants of " So You Think You Can Dance ", Katee Shean, Kherington Payne, and Comfort Fedoke. Also in the episode, Kurt gives Rachel a makeover to impress Finn, but he may have ulterior motives. Chris Colfer who plays Kurt said, "There's love triangles right now, but there's soon to be love pentagons and hexagons. I get added on to the [Puck-Quinn-Finn-Rachel] quadrangle. We go full force: When Kurt fell in love with Finn, why he's in love and what he plans on doing. There's a flashback and it's pretty funny." Source & Preview

Good News: In our exclusive one-on-one with GLEE star and fellow Canadian Cory Montieth, the actor talked candidly about how his life has changed since GLEE catapulted him to world-wide fame and what to expect from the final string of episodes prior to the show's holiday hiatus. Bad News: You'll have to wait until Wednesday for the interview in its entirety. And until then, settle for this good (albeit slightly obvious) news. According to Monteith, it's official: GLEE is being paired up with the powerhouse that is AMERICAN IDOL when the show returns in 2010. Pass it on Source Here
