WEEK AHEAD: Britney Releases Her Hits
While Britney Spears takes a break, her Prerogative finally hits stores on Tuesday. PEOPLE has the scoop on her best-of package, and other events to watch for in the coming week:
SUNDAY, NOV. 7: If one obnoxious reality-TV boss isn't enough for you, FOX has another one lined up. In My Big Fat Obnoxious Boss, the sequel to My Big Fat Obnoxious Fiance, 12 business mogul wannabes compete in humiliating tasks to win a job working for a "billionaire" (who's really played by actor William August). The twist: There is no job, but the contestant who wins will score $250,000. Meanwhile, on The Rebel Billionaire – which premieres on the network on Nov. 9 – contestants compete in extreme challenges around the globe for a real job: to become the new president of British tycoon Richard Branson's Virgin Group of Companies (and win $1 million).
If reality shows don't give you a big enough dose of scandal, there's always Dallas. The Ewing clan reunites for CBS's Dallas Reunion: Return to Southfork on Nov. 7. Larry Hagman, Patrick Duffy, Linda Gray, Victoria Principal and Charlene Tilton return to the ranch to reminisce about the classic show. Expect the requisite blooper reel and never-before-seen footage.
MONDAY, NOV. 8: Late Show host David Letterman is getting up early to make a rare visit to another talk show – Live with Regis & Kelly. "I think it's nice that he visits our show once every 10 years," said Regis Philbin, who's long traded friendly digs with Letterman (and subbed for him when the Late Show host underwent heart bypass surgery in 2000 and recuperated from an infection in 2003). To prep for his visit, Live has released its own Top Ten list of reasons why he's appearing on the show. High on the list? "Thinks Kelly is hot."
TUESDAY, NOV. 9: Britney Spears is about to prove you're never too young for a greatest-hits package. The new Mrs. Federline's 17-track Greatest Hits: My Prerogative features some Britney (ahem) classics, including "…Baby One More Time" and "Oops!…I Did It Again" and the previously unreleased "(I've Just Begun) Having My Fun," as well as her remake of the Bobby Brown song "My Prerogative." In her recent letter on her Web site, Spears, 22, said the album will have to hold her fans over for a while. "My prerogative right now is to just chill and let all of the other overexposed blondes be your entertainment."
WEDNESDAY, NOV. 10: Let's hope they don't suffer from the Gigli curse: Lindsay Lohan will team up with real-life love Wilmer Valderrama during her guest spot on That '70s Show. The actress (who seems to have recovered just fine from her five-day stay at L.A.'s Cedars-Sinai Medical Center for fever, headaches and exhaustion) will share an onscreen kiss with somebody on the show, but the powers-that-be are tight-lipped about who that is – Valderrama or costars Ashton Kutcher, Danny Masterson or Topher Grace.
