Wed, Nov 21, 2012 (midnight)
A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving The classic Peanuts special has aired every year since 1973, and watching hapless Charlie Brown attempt to prepare a Thanksgiving feast for his friends never gets old. November 22, 8 p.m., ABC.
National Dog Show Not just about show dogs, this Thanksgiving day watch party is also about “go” dogs that fly in the air and dive in the water for discs. Pet your full belly while you root for your favorite furry friends. Noon-2 p.m., NBC.
Global Sports Classic The Runnin’ Rebels bring a 2-0 record into their first big test of the season: a Friday clash with Oregon and a date with either Iowa State or ranked Cincinnati on Saturday. November 23, 6 p.m.; November 24, 5 or 7:30 p.m.; $25-$35 per day; Thomas & Mack Center.
Rush The Canadian rockers have a new album, and they play a lot of it live—augmented by a string section(!). Don’t worry, you’ll also get some old hits and deep cuts, though don’t look to us to spoil the surprise and tell you which ones. November 23, 8 p.m., $59-$154, MGM Grand Garden Arena.
Jim Gaffigan He killed with his bit on McDonald’s. Oh, and Subway. Come to think of it, anything food-related. McDonald’s might not be good for you, but Gaffigan sure is. November 23-24, 10 p.m., $75-$86, Mirage.
