Watch this: TV week of Nov. 18

MONDAY

Sleepy Hollow, 9 p.m., Fox

The chemistry between Hollow stars Nicole Beharie and Tom Mison and the dynamic relationship their characters Abbie and Ichabod have is so watchable, we don't even mind that tonight's plot is about them attempting to bring down the Headless Horseman.

Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives, 10 p.m., Food

In this new episode, Guy Fieri goes in search of different takes on Thanksgiving staples. Because when we think of the comfort of Thanksgiving food, we think of diners, drive-ins and dive restaurants. Club sandwiches and onion rings for everyone!

TUESDAY

Brooklyn Nine-Nine, 8:30 p.m., Fox

All you really need to know is that Patton Oswalt, total comedic gem and most entertaining Tweeter ever, is a guest star tonight. Enjoy!

David Blaine: Real or Magic, 9:30 p.m., ABC

David Blaine performs street magic for celebrities like Kanye West, Harrison Ford, Will Smith, Katy Perry, and Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul. Incredible sleight of hand AND a Breaking Bad reunion? Count us in!

THURSDAY

Glee, 9 p.m., Fox

The seniors are looking ahead to graduation in this Billy Joel-themed episode, which means soon the show will have even less reason to be set in a high school. Hey, Ryan Murphy, how about cutting bait on the McKinley stuff and just making next year's final season about Kurt and Rachel in NYC? That's the show everyone's wanted all along, anyway.

Parenthood, 10 p.m., NBC

Parenthood, we know you're eager for emotional drama after the big Kristina-cancer storyline came to its predictably happy ending last season, but if she wins this preposterous election and becomes mayor of Berkeley with ZERO experience, we're going to have serious problems with you going forward.

SATURDAY

Thanksgiving Live, 12 p.m., Food

Already stressing out about the big meal? Don't worry. Just tune in to this annual two-hour special when viewers' questions will be answered live by Food Network chefs Ina Garten, Alton Brown, Bobby Flay and Giada De Laurentiis. Knowing Alton Brown, he'll probably have you cook the turkey with a hair dryer and use an eye-dropper to get the gravy ingredients extremely precise, but the others should be helpful.

Bill Cosby: Far From Finished, 8 p.m., Comedy

The 76-year-old (!) comedian returns to his standup roots for this 90-minute concert special, his first televised comedy special in 30 years. He'll talk about parenthood, marriage, and the difference between spouses and friends. Think Bill has lost his touch? No way. As a frequent guest on shows like Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, his comedy chops are still unbelievably sharp.

Window Wonderland, 8 p.m., Hallmark

Good thing Chyler Leigh's character got killed in that plane crash on Grey's Anatomy, so her schedule could be free to star in this Hallmark Original Movie. Naomi Judd also shows up in this movie about two people (Leigh and Paul Campbell) trying to win the same window-dressing contest at a major Manhattan department store. Would you believe they fall madly in love in the process?

SUNDAY

2013 American Music Awards, 8 p.m., ABC

Not really sure what the purpose of this awards show is, though it mainly seems like an excuse to get lots of pretty pop stars on the same stage. Fine with us! Katy Perry opens the show, which also includes performances both awesome (Justin Timberlake, Miley Cyrus) and baffling (TLC?!). Macklemore & Ryan Lewis are apparently leading the pack with six nominations and Pitbull hosts because, like we said, this seems like sort of a bogus awards show.
