What's On This Week

SUNDAY, NOV. 18

THE SIMPSONS
8 P.M. | FOX
Jack Black supplies the voice of a guy who owns a comic-book store. Marge opens a women's gym, and Homer worries that her exposure to the world of taut abs will cast his donut-fed paunch into shadow.

AMERICAN MUSIC AWARDS
8 P.M. | ABC
Jimmy Kimmel hosts the night, with performances by supercrooner Celine Dion (right), Alicia Keys and Maroon 5. Top nominees, with three nods each: Justin Timberlake, Beyoncé Knowles, Linkin Park and Daughtry.

MONDAY, NOV. 19

ELLEN'S REALLY BIG SHOW
9 P.M. | TBS
Making like legendary (if oddly sepulchral) variety host Ed Sullivan, Ellen DeGeneres rounds up acts including Mary J. Blige, Sheryl Crow and Wayne Newton, who appeared on Sullivan's show back in the '60s.

SEASON FINALE!
WEEDS
10 P.M. | SHOWTIME
As a wildfire forces the evacuation of Majestic and raises knotty questions about the marijuana crop, Mary-Louise Parker acts on a scary, desperate gleam of inspiration: It's a perfect little crystal of a moment.

TUESDAY, NOV. 20

A CHARLIE BROWN THANKSGIVING
8 P.M. | ABC
Another seasonal Peanuts classic, this one dating from 1973. Snoopy and Woodstock cater the big dinner for Charlie, skipping the turkey and bringing in popcorn. I'm sad already.

THURSDAY, NOV. 22

NEW SEASON!

OCTOBER ROAD

10:02 P.M. | ABC
This returning drama feels like a salt-of-the-earth Gossip Girl: plenty of sexy young people, only they tend to be licking small-town wounds. Nick (Bryan Greenberg, right, with Geoff Stults) backtracks from Knights Ridge to Manhattan to track down a friend who fled a marital disaster. Stults, with his broad-shouldered magnetism, has the most heft here.

SATURDAY, NOV. 24

BILLY RAY CYRUS: HOME AT LAST
9:30 P.M. | CMT
Four-part series about the singer, Dancing with the Stars hoofer and dad to Hannah Montana's Miley as he tries to balance all the commitments in his achy, breaky head and finally get some rest.
