Another calendar page has turned in the book of 2016, and with it comes good entertainment on television. Here’s a look at what’s coming up on the boob tube in November.

Yes, Halloween is barely past and we’re looking ahead to Christmas. But… ‘tis the season! And, unsurprisingly, the Hallmark Channel has already begun its Countdown to Christmas: “Holiday Movies All Day! All Night!”

How can we resist that tagline?

The countdown began on Oct. 29 with A Wish for Christmas, starring Lacey Chabert of Mean Girls fame. But there’s more:

  • The Mistletoe Promise airs Nov. 5
  • A Perfect Christmas airs Nov. 6
  • Every Christmas Has a Story airs Nov. 12
  • Christmas Cookies airs Nov. 13

Plenty of shows beginning and returning in November, including:

  • World Series game 7 airs on Nov. 2 on FOX
  • The 50th Annual CMA Awards air Nov. 2 on ABC
  • LIFETIME Original Who Killed JonBenet airs Nov. 5 on LIFETIME
  • The Real Housewives of Atlanta, 9th season premiere airs Nov. 6 on BRAVO
  • American Dad, 12th season premiere airs Nov. 7 on TBS
  • Pit bulls and Parolees, 8th season premiere airs Nov. 12 on ANIMAL PLANET

The 2016-2017 NBA basketball season is upon us. As you know, BendBroadband has full Blazers coverage (all 82 regular season games), but CBS Sports has the full NBA schedule listed here.


I don’t know about you, but after stuffing myself full of Thanksgiving eats, I head straight to the couch for an afternoon of screaming at the television. Football, of course. And the NFL has a full list of its Thanksgiving Day games listed here.

It looks like we’ll get a triple-header of great games from:

  • Detroit Lions vs. Philadelphia Eagles
  • Carolina Panthers vs. Dallas Cowboys
  • Chicago Bears vs. Green Bay Packers

We’re ready for a good month of television, how about you?
