November 2010 Calendar of Premieres, Specials and Finales

by Jason Hughes, posted Nov 1st 2010 10:50AM
'Psych' / 'Conan' / 'Human Target'
The biggest premiere of the month isn't in prime time. But still we expect plenty of people to stay up until 11PM ET to catch the TBS launch of 'Conan' on November 8. ABC bids farewell to another hit season of 'Dancing with the Stars,' but not before using its power to launch new series 'Skating with the Stars.' USA gets back in the action with fall returns for 'Burn Notice' and 'Psych,' while History premieres the US-version of 'Top Gear.'

DirecTV continues their expansion into original, or at least new-to-the-States programming, by picking up three British series: 'No Heroics,' 'Mutual Friends' and 'How Not to Live Your Life.' November also celebrates music with the MTV Europe Music Awards, the CMA Awards, the Soul Train Awards and the American Music Awards, while 'Human Target' enjoys a Wednesday premiere thanks to the failure of 'Lone Star.'

It's also the kick-off for the holiday specials onslaught, including new entries featuring 'Futurama' and 'Kung Fu Panda.' But not all of November's specials are holiday related. The month also sees a tribute to Sam Kinison, an epilogue to History's 'World War II in HD,' and a tribute to 25 years of 'People Magazine's "Sexiest Man Alive," among others. Check out all the November premieres, specials and finales and bookmark this page to use all month long.

Okay, I may have the network rights crossed, but you
must admit, the November 30'th 2010 schedule is very
strange to have Rudolph & The Grinch air on CBS & ABC
respectively in the same timeslot. Maybe it's a typo.

CBS is airing Rudolph The Red Nosed Reindeer, at
the same time ABC is airing How The Grinch Stole
Christmas, at 8:00pm, on November 30'th, the same
night? How rare is that for the holidays? The only
other time this happened was on September 7'th, 1985.
ABC premiered The Bugs Bunny/Looney Tunes Comedy
Hour on the same day CBS aired its last broadcast
of The Bugs Bunny/Road Runner Show, only their shows
gave a 2-hour difference. ABC's Bugs Bunny show was
on at 8:00am, while CBS' Bugs Bunny show aired at
10:00am. Knowing this, why couldn't ABC work out a
deal to air Rudolph at 9:00pm, while CBS could air
The Grinch, and perhaps A Charlie Brown Christmas
in the 8:00pm hour to make room enough for us to
watch all 3 shows on a family night? I know that's
what Tivos are for, but in the last 25 years, I've
never seen the local networks get this desperate.
