Everyday With Rachael Ray MagazineMany a good battles can be seen on TV tonight. That’s right, Homer Simpson faces off against a tough colonel played by Kiefer Sutherland, Rachael Ray takes on Giada De Laurentiis, Orson’s mom comes for a visit to Wysteria Lane, Justin and military reenlistment on Brothers & Sisters, Jack and a disturbed woman on Without a Trace, Dexter and the Ice Truck Killer, the Heat and Rockets and last but certainly not least the Giants and the Bears on Sunday Night Football. For football fans, it is probably the game of the day, well after whatever game their favorite team is playing in. Today for me it is the Seahawks at home against the Rams for division supremacy. What battle are you looking forward to on TV today?

Prime Picks

The Simpsons (FOX): New. Kiefer Sutherland guests as the voice of a hard-nosed colonel who is annoyed by Homer after being recruited to the Army.

Without a Trace (CBS): New. While undercover Jack is taken hostage because she thinks Jack was hired to kill her.

Cable Choices

Emeril Live (Food Network): New. Emeril cooks up some historical Thanksgiving dishes with his usual flair.

Iron Chef America (Food Network): New. Giada De Laurentiis and Rachael Ray battle each other tonight. They are each paired with an Iron Chef, Giada with Bobby Flay and the Rachael with Mario Batali. Runs 90 minutes.

Dexter (Showtime): New. The Ice Truck Killer is finally identified but Dexter doesn’t think that something is right with the case.

Other Options

  • Good Eats (Food Network): New. Alton fries up some turkeys.
  • Nip/Tuck (FX): Repeat. Last week’s episode, “Merrill Bobolit,” replays. Runs 65 minutes.

  • CBS has NFL coverage and the back nine of the Merrill Lynch Shootout.
  • ESPN has Sunday Night Basketball with the Houston Rockets at the Miami Heat.
  • FOX has NFL games including the St. Louis Rams at the Seattle Seahawks, which is the game I will be watching.
