By The Futon Critic Staff (TFC)

LOS ANGELES (thefutoncritic.com) -- ABC has quietly outlined its November sweeps plans, which as usual include a mix of specials, movies and the like. Here's a breakdown of some of the highlights:

-- Once "The Benefactor" wraps next week look for ABC to initially fill the Monday, 8:00/7:00c hour with the special "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition - How'd They Do That?" on November 1. Said program will provide some additional details on the previous night's episode ("Ali Family"). A second "How'd They Do That?" special is also slated for November 29 ("Burns Family"). In between the two, look for the launch of the series version of "Life of Luxury," a follow-up to last year's George Hamilton-hosted "Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous"-esque special, on November 8.

-- Season six of "The Bachelor" is set to wrap with a two-hour installment on Wednesday, November 24 at 8:00/7:00c. As has been the case in previous seasons, "The Women Tell All" special will air the week prior to the finale (Wednesday, November 17 at 9:00/8:00c) with the "After the Final Rose" special following the finale (Wednesday, November 24 at 10:00/9:00c).

-- On the movie front look for the theatricals "The Rookie" (Saturday, November 6 at 8:00/7:00c), "Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone" (Saturday, November 13 at 8:00/7:00c) and "Dr. Seuss' How the Grinch Stole Christmas" (Thursday, November 25 at 8:30/7:30c) during the period.

-- "Nick & Jessica's Family Christmas," the pair's second special for the network, is set to air on Wednesday, December 1 at 9:00/8:00c while ABC's "32nd Annual American Music Awards" will run on Sunday, November 14 at 8:00/7:00c.

-- Following the sweeps period, ABC has scheduled two original movies: the three-hour "The Five People You Meet In Heaven" (Sunday, December 5 at 8:00/7:00c), which stars Ellen Burstyn, Jeff Daniels, Dagmara Dominczyk, Steve Grayhem and Jon Voight, and its "Wonderful World of Disney" presentation of "Naughty or Nice" (Saturday, December 18 at 9:00/8:00c), featuring George Lopez, Lisa Vidale, Bianca Collins, Christopher Collins, James Kirk, Roger Lodge, Dan McLean and John Salley.
