This Week on TV – 11/22/09-11/28/09

Welcome to a new week of TV! The first part of the week has a bunch of great new shows, including several finales and premieres. Thursday, Friday & Saturday are all fairly slow, as Thursday is Thanksgiving in the US. So Happy Thanksgiving to everyone who celebrates this week! Now, let’s get to it! Jump with me to view this week’s schedule!

Sunday

Sunday is the season finale of The Next Iron Chef on Food Network at 9/8c.

Tonight is also the series premeire of The Haunted on Animal Planet at 10/9c. Tales of ghosts and supernatural beings haunt the dreams of children and inspire peculiar horror films and books, but what if you found yourself trapped in the middle of your own ghost story? What if your home had been the scene of a terrifying fire 100 years ago? Or your basement had been used for violent and deadly experiments? What if you discovered unexplainable bloody handprints on the walls around your baby’s crib? And what if you didn’t know these things had happened but the animals around you did?

Also tonight, it’s the 3-hour 2009 American Music Awards on ABC at 8/7c.

Finally tonight, Cold Case and Three Rivers are switching timeslots, for one week only! Cold Case will air tonight at 9/8c and Three Rivers following that at 10/9c.
