Conan - Monday November 8, 12AM ET/PT, Comedy

Finally, the red-headed phoenix rises from the ashes of that NBC debacle, taking his rightful place on your late-night screen. Conan O'Brien's first week of guests includes Seth Rogen, Jack White, Tom Hanks, Jon Hamm, and Canadian Jon Dore. There was initially some talk of having Coco on earlier up here in Canada, with initial releases claiming he'd be on at 11PM, but alas with 'The Daily Show's historic takeover of the top late night spot, why mess with success? (Jon Stewart airs at 11PM on CTV affiliates in Canada.)

Undercovers - Wednesday November 10, 10PM ET/PT, Citytv/NBC

If you're one of the eight people who'd been watching this show, you've got about three more weeks to do so. NBC's second cancellation of the season ('Outlaw' was first), J.J. Abram's take on the 'Mr & Mrs. Smith' idea just didn't seem to gel with viewers. I'm kind of put out about this; I liked the show, but I admit not enough to tune in and watch it regularly.

Monty Python: Almost the Truth
- Saturday November 13, 10PM ET/PT, Comedy Network

Back-to-back episodes kick off this 6-part documentary series that covers the biographies of all the members of the iconic comedy troupe and their rise to collective fame. It includes interviews with Michael Palin, Terry Gilliam, John Cleese, Terry Jones and Eric Idle of course, but later episodes also get takes from comedians who've been influenced by the the Pythons, including Seth Green and Russell Brand.

The 25th Annual Gemini Awards
- Saturday November 13, 8PM ET/PT, Global

'Glee's Cory Montieth hosts Canadian television's big night out from the Winter Garden Theatre in Toronto. Presenters include Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir, Enrico Colantoni and Grace Park, among others. Show some patriotic pride and tune in, Canucks. I mean, what else are you going to do on a Saturday night?
