And save some room for FOX's Thanksgiving weekend marathon of World Broadcast Premiere movies. FOX puts into effect a no-leftovers policy in favor of box office hits seen for the first time on broadcast TV, including SPIDER-MAN (Thursday, Nov. 25), MR. DEEDS (Friday, Nov. 26), MEN IN BLACK II (Saturday, Nov. 27) and ICE AGE (Sunday, Nov. 28).

Here are the highlights, night by night, for this November Sweeps on FOX:

On the ninth season premiere of Southern-fried hit KING OF THE HILL Sunday, Nov. 7 (7:00-7:30 PM ET/PT), Henry Winkler guest-stars as himself. Peggy returns to her home in Montana to reconcile her rocky relationship with her mother, and discovers that her family's farm is threatened by the escalation of property taxes caused by the influx of Hollywood movie stars to Montana. Peggy is determined to save her family's land, but will she ever win her mother's approval?

Stuff yourself with three all-new November Sweeps episodes of MALCOLM IN THE MIDDLE, including the sixth season premiere Sunday, Nov. 7 (7:30-8:00 PM ET/PT). Reese, having illegally enlisted in the Army, parachutes into Afghanistan and immediately deserts, disguising himself as an Afghani woman. Lois convinces an Army officer to give up Reese's location and sells the car to buy a plane ticket, intent on rescuing her son. Meanwhile, Malcolm tries to assuage his guilt over Reese's enlistment by committing an act of random violence and destruction in his brother's honor.

Series regular Bryan Cranston, who plays harried dad Hal, directs the episode airing Sunday, Nov. 14 (7:30-8:00 PM ET/PT). The Buseys disappear after Dewey leaves the Special Needs class; an out-of-work Hal becomes the leader of a group of brainless bodybuilders; and Malcolm and Reese get in - surprise! - trouble, this time for feeding Lois false information.

On the all-new "Standee" episode of MALCOLM IN THE MIDDLE, airing Sunday, Nov. 21 (7:30-8:00 PM ET/PT), Hal and the garbage man get into an escalating trash-dumping war, causing Hal to enlist Reese's help in exacting revenge. Meanwhile, Lois and Malcolm, both working at Lucky Aide, engage in a battle of their own, involving a potentially racist grocery store standee and an embarrassing photo of Malcolm.

THE SIMPSONS hands out its annual Halloween treats on the all-new "Treehouse of Horror XV" special episode Sunday, Nov. 7 (8:00-8:30 PM ET/PT), featuring a sampler of three deliciously frightful mini-episodes. In "The Ned Zone," Ned Flanders gains the power of foretelling people's deaths after suffering a head injury, and is shocked to discover that he will be the one to kill Homer. In the second short, "In the Belly of the Boss," Maggie is shrunken inside a vitamin capsule in a freak science accident, and is swallowed by Mr. Burns. The final Halloween scare, "Four Beheadings and a Funeral," is set in Victorian London, where Master Detective Eliza Simpson and her faithful sidekick, Dr. Bartley, attempt to catch The Muttonchop Murderer, a Jack the Ripper-esque serial killer.

The following week on Sunday, Nov. 14 (8:00-8:30 PM ET/PT), on the official 16th season premiere of THE SIMPSONS, actor James Caan and writer Thomas Pynchon guest-star as themselves. When Bart fishes Homer's vintage "Playdude" magazines out of the trash, he decides to adopt the ring-a-ding-ding lifestyle of the 1970s, as interpreted by a 10-year-old. Meanwhile, Marge stoops to sabotage to keep up with the other contestants during the Ovenfresh Bakeoff.

On the "Sleeping with the Enemy" episode Sunday, Nov. 21 (8:00-8:30 PM ET/PT) of THE SIMPSONS, Marge, feeling neglected by her kids, takes in town bully Nelson Muntz as her surrogate child. Bart, not especially happy to share a bedroom with his tormentor, is desperate to reunite the Muntz family, while Lisa's body image suffers after she's teased on the playground.

FOX's version of five-star haute cuisine, the Emmy Award-winning Best Comedy Series ARRESTED DEVELOPMENT, has its second season premiere on Sunday, Nov. 7 (8:30-9:00 PM ET/PT), and last season's scene-stealing guest star, Henry Winkler, returns as George Sr.'s legal counsel. George Sr. is apprehended after his jailbreak - but the police have mistakenly caught Oscar, George Sr.'s twin brother. With George Sr. at large, Michael is next in line to be prosecuted for the crimes of the company, and must come up with funds immediately to stay out of jail.

Too proud and angry to ask his family members for help, Michael is further vexed to find out that they are doing perfectly well without him - Lindsay and Tobias have decided to have an open relationship, Tobias auditions for The Blue Man Group, Gob is running the company and Lucille has asked Oscar to move in to be a role model for Buster.

The following week on Sunday, Nov. 14 (8:30-9:00 PM ET/PT), due to Michael's continuing legal troubles, Gob agrees to be the company figurehead while Michael pulls the strings, an arrangement which, of course, ends up driving Michael completely crazy when Gob's showmanship and ludicrous ideas impress the board. Meanwhile, the mistaken identities continue when George Sr. is arrested in Mexico for a crime that Oscar committed, and Oscar takes George Sr.'s place in a way no one could have predicted.

In a spicy twist, ARRESTED DEVELOPMENT heads South of the Border on Sunday, Nov. 21 (8:30-9:00 PM ET/PT), when the staircar turns up in Mexico. Increasingly frustrated and resentful about being abandoned, Michael wants to find his fugitive father to give him a piece of his mind. George Michael invites his girlfriend, Ann, whom Michael does not like, on the road trip, and a suspicious Gob hires a bounty hunter to retrieve them. Things only go from bad to worse when Michael inadvertently leaves Ann in Mexico.

The FOX Sunday banquet wouldn't be complete without a final mouth-watering course, the new series MY BIG FAT OBNOXIOUS BOSS, which dishes up a big fat series premiere on Sunday, Nov. 7 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) and all-new episodes on Sundays, Nov. 14, 21 and 28 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT). FOX busts down the boardroom doors to skewer overly confident young entrepreneurs believing they can conquer the world in this comical hybrid of scripted, improvisational and reality series. The professional prank begins when 12 real contestants - young, overachieving, type-A business professionals - arrive in Chicago and begin competing in frustrating and ridiculous challenges to win the approval of "Mr. N. Paul Todd," the founder and CEO of a multibillion-dollar company, IOCOR. Unbeknownst to these "business savvy" participants, IOCOR is a fictitious company and "Mr. Todd" is really actor William August setting out to dupe the know-it-all participants.

FOX Monday during November Sweeps is sure to sate even the most voracious of appetites, with four weeks of all-new offerings of TRADING SPOUSES: MEET YOUR NEW MOMMY and THE SWAN.

All-new installments of TRADING SPOUSES air Mondays, Nov. 8, 15, 22 and 29 (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT). Moms and dads try out the ultimate life change, switching families to take over a clan from another walk of life. It seems like a fantasy at first: the chance to find out if the grass actually is greener on the other side.

But the fairy tale gets twisted as the new parent moves in, meets the new family and realizes it may be far more than he or she bargained for. While some parents are welcomed with open arms, others face mutiny from their new household. It's either a dream vacation, or a living hell.

If that weren't enough, FOX Monday night threatens to burst at the seams with all-new episodes of THE SWAN, in which self-proclaimed "ugly ducklings" are given the unique opportunity to realize their dreams. The unscripted series that turns a fairy tale into reality, THE SWAN revitalizes women who are stuck in a rut by revealing their beauty and confidence through physical, mental and emotional transformations with the help of a team of specialists. Each week Mondays, Nov. 8, 15, 22 and 29 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT), two contestants are featured, and in each episode's final moments, the contestants, who have not been permitted to see themselves in a mirror during the transformation process, experience the ultimate reveal. Not only do they find out who has been selected to compete in the Swan Pageant and who will go home to her family, but they see themselves anew for the first time.

Tuesdays are stuffed to excess with action, adventure and mystery, as FOX serves on a silver platter the series premieres and all-new episodes of THE REBEL BILLIONAIRE: BRANSON'S QUEST FOR THE BEST and HOUSE.

Sir Richard Branson, billionaire, global adventurer, world record-setter, entrepreneur and Founder/Chairman of the Virgin Group of Companies, seeks someone worthy to receive the keys to his kingdom on THE REBEL BILLIONAIRE's hearty two-hour premiere Tuesday, Nov. 9 (8:00-10:00 PM ET/PT). Searching for an extraordinary individual who has the right stuff to follow in his footsteps, Branson will take a group of 16 would-be billionaires on a whirlwind tour of the world to test their mettle by reliving some of the colorful adventures, life challenges and personal dilemmas that Branson faced on his own path to becoming one of the world's most successful businesspeople. Participants will need to use their business savvy in both physical and mental tasks to prove their worth, and each week Tuesdays, Nov. 16, 23 and 30 (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT), one will be left on the tarmac while the others jet off to the next exotic locale, competing for the chance to win the largest prize in reality show history.

Sink your teeth into meaty drama and intrigue with HOUSE, FOX's new take on mystery, where the villain is a medical malady and the hero is an irreverent, controversial doctor who trusts no one, least of all his patients. On the compelling premiere episode Tuesday, Nov. 16 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT), Gregory House - a doctor devoid of bedside manner but a brilliant diagnostician - and his elite team of young medical experts rush to save the life of a kindergarten teacher.

HOUSE presents two additional all-new episodes (Tuesdays, Nov. 23 and 30, 9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) during November Sweeps. The maverick physician and his staff take on inexplicable medical cases that other doctors can't solve. With a patient's life in the balance, House will do whatever it takes in the race against the clock to solve the case before it takes a life, from sending one of his team to break into a patient's home in search of clues, to attempting a controversial, high-stakes, trial-and-error form of treatment to see how a patient responds. House's methods may be suspect, but his results are not.

For those with a hankering for lighter fare, FOX Wednesday night lays out a binge-worthy spread of all-new episodes of THAT '70s SHOW, QUINTUPLETS and NANNY 911; guest stars Lindsay Lohan and Tara Reid; an all-new special edition episode of THE SIMPLE LIFE; and, the cherry to top it all off, the original special KELLY, RUBEN & FANTASIA: HOME FOR CHRISTMAS airing on Thanksgiving Eve.

Lindsay Lohan guest-stars as Danielle, Fez's attractive client, on the "Mother's Little Helper" episode of THAT '70s SHOW, airing on Wednesday, Nov. 10 (8:00-8:30 PM ET/PT). Fez learns the joys of mixing business with pleasure after a steamy make-out session with his new customer, but faces some competition from Kelso, whose new tactic of staying silent to fake being a good listener seems to be working. Meanwhile, Red is horrified to find out that Kitty planted "The Joy of Sex" book in the house to spice up their love life, and even more horrified that everyone knows about it - including Eric.

On the "Angie" episode Wednesday, Nov. 17 (8:00-8:30 PM ET/PT), Tim Reid guest-stars as Hyde's long-lost father, William Barnett, whose daughter, Angie (guest star Megalyn Echikunwoke) - Hyde's sister - is not as nice as she seems. Hyde discovers her ambitious side when she starts a war with him for control of their father's company. Meanwhile, while shampooing Kitty's hair, Fez learns that Eric is addicted to roller disco - and that addiction isn't pretty.

Pass the mashed potatoes and gravy as THAT '70s SHOW cooks up some Thanksgiving vittles the night before the big feast on Wednesday, Nov. 24 (8:00-8:30 PM ET/PT). On the "You Can't Always Get What You Want" episode, Kitty is crestfallen that the kids have plans of their own for Thanksgiving dinner - Eric has tickets to a Styx concert, and Hyde has his store's grand opening. Tim Reid returns as Hyde's biological father.

On the last November Sweeps serving of THAT '70s SHOW Wednesday, Dec. 1 (8:00-8:30 PM ET/PT), Hyde's sister, Angie, succumbing to Kelso's charms, reluctantly agrees to a second date - and is mortified to wake up in bed with him. Meanwhile, Donna plugs Red's muffler shop calendar on air - by railing against its chauvinistic depiction of women. But luckily for her, there's nothing like a little controversy to move calendars.

This November, fill up on QUINTUPLETS - with five teenagers, three all-new episodes (Wednesdays, Nov. 10 and 24 and Dec. 1, 8:30-9:00 PM ET/PT) and guest star Tara Reid as a hot English teacher (Wednesday, Nov. 10, 8:30-9:00 PM ET/PT), it's a feast of plenty. Raising a teenager can be a challenge. Raising five at once means all-out war. The quintuplets were a blessing when they were first born - an adorable gift of abundance, they graced many a magazine cover promoting everything from applesauce to condoms. Their teenage years, however, have been less than kind. No longer the precious little tykes they used to be, the quints are three boys and two girls of varying sizes, looks, intelligence and social skills, torn between their dependence on each other and their need to develop their individuality.

On Wednesday, Nov. 17, FOX serves up an all-new special edition episode of THE SIMPLE LIFE (8:30-9:00 PM ET/PT), featuring never-before-seen footage from THE SIMPLE LIFE 2: ROAD TRIP, as well as interviews with the families and employers who hosted Paris and Nicole.

When your kids are full of trouble, help is there on the double. The British are coming this November on NANNY 911! Catch the wonder-nannies in action this November Sweeps on Wednesdays, Nov. 10, Nov. 17 and Dec. 1 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT). Each week on this new unscripted series, an experienced Head Nanny and her team of "specialist" nannies, armed with the dos and don'ts of child-rearing, work their incredible "Mary Poppins"-like magic to transform terrible tykes into perfect angels. These ´┐Żber-nannies help exhausted parents tackle the chaos in their homes and whip their families into tip-top shape.

O Come All Ye Faithful IDOL fans, AMERICAN IDOL winners Kelly Clarkson, Ruben Studdard and Fantasia will perform classic holiday songs and selections from their upcoming CDs for the one-hour holiday special KELLY, RUBEN & FANTASIA: HOME FOR CHRISTMAS airing Wednesday, Nov. 24 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT). Have yourself a merry little Christmas and start your holiday season early when America's favorite Idols, Kelly, Ruben and Fantasia, bring their unique vocal styles to some of the world's best-loved holiday songs and debut some new material from their upcoming records.

The wait is finally over. Throw away your calorie counter, put aside the diet. It's time to overindulge on everyone's favorite - THE O.C. Even the most insatiable of O.C. fans will walk away from the table satisfied after an all-you-can-eat November Sweeps buffet of all-new episodes.

On the season premiere Thursday, Nov. 4 (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT), you'll get what you've been craving all summer long. At the end of last season, Ryan returned to Chino to protect his pregnant ex-girlfriend, and, with the departure of his only friend in Newport Beach, Seth sailed off on his yacht and ran away from Orange County.

The summer is over, school's about to begin and Ryan and Seth are nowhere to be found. Sandy and Kirsten struggle to reunite their family; Caleb's problems with the D.A. mount; Marissa's struggles with Julie continue in their new home; and Jimmy learns that life can be good again. And as always, things are not always what they seem in THE O.C.

The sudsy intrigue continues the following week on Thursday, Nov. 11 (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT), as Seth, Ryan, Marissa and Summer adjust to their changing dynamics and yearn for the way they were. On Thursday, Nov. 18 (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT), the band The Walkmen perform on another all-new episode of THE O.C.

From Southern California to Hawaii, FOX Thursday is TV's hottest new destination, when NORTH SHORE moves to follow THE O.C., starting Thursday, Nov. 4 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT). The boiling point is reached - and then some - at The Grand Waimea, as Shannen Doherty's Alexandra wreaks havoc on the hotel employees. She fires Vincent and promotes Tessa to be Nicole's boss. When Nicole can no longer take it, she shoves Tessa into the fountain and gets fired herself. Meanwhile, Chris and MJ hit a rough patch when MJ lets booze and heartache get the best of her, and Gabriel and Erika get a big surprise of the nine-month variety.

On the next juicy episode Thursday, Nov. 11 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT), Jason Gedrick returns as Clayton, who threatens to expose MJ's secret; Alexandra resorts to blackmail; hotel politics escalate; and Vincent almost loses it all playing high-stakes poker in Hong Kong - apparently, that's how they do it on NORTH SHORE. Mel Harris and Gabrielle Reece also guest-star.

Alexandra sends Tessa and Jason to a black-tie charity fundraiser to represent the hotel, and they, naturally, bring their respective significant others, which causes major friction and a healthy share of jealousy. Gabriel is approached about being sponsored by a major surfwear company, and MJ tries to make amends with Chris on "The Big One" installment of NORTH SHORE Thursday, Nov. 18 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT).

The FOX Friday night repast features all-new episodes of TOTALLY OUTRAGEOUS BEHAVIOR, WORLD'S CRAZIEST VIDEOS and Friday's newest offering, RENOVATE MY FAMILY, and a one-hour COPS special.

As host of TOTALLY OUTRAGEOUS BEHAVIOR, Fox Sports Net's Lisa Dergan ladles up two all-new helpings (Fridays, Nov. 5 and 12, 8:00-8:30 PM ET/PT) of TV's wackiest clip show. You are about to find out what happens when people hit the "record" button on their video cameras and capture some of the most outrageous, shocking and genuinely unbelievable moments for posterity.

Comedian Brian Unger invites you to belly up to the table for huge portions of funny flubs and blunders from TV shows, news broadcasts and other hilarious outtakes from around the world on WORLD'S CRAZIEST VIDEOS. November Sweeps' two all-new installments (Fridays, Nov. 5 and 12, 8:30-9:00 PM ET/PT) feature the amusing adventures of TV reporters on location, outlandish game show bloopers and some naughty newsroom mess-ups.

On Friday, Nov. 19 (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT), an extraordinary one-hour COPS special event in Sin City follows a homicide from crime scene to courtroom. COPS, in its 17 seasons, has never dedicated this much coverage to one crime. In addition to the real-life crime scene investigation, cameras will also capture a high-speed pursuit, conduct an undercover theft sting and detain a jaywalking drunk fully loaded with beer cans crammed in his crotch on the all-new special COPS: LAS VEGAS METRO '04.

Enjoy all-new servings of FOX's hit family life-improvement series RENOVATE MY FAMILY on its new night this November Sweeps (Fridays, Nov. 5, 12 and 19, 9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT). Host Jay McGraw and the RENOVATE MY FAMILY crew of makeover professionals get families in need back on track, restoring and redecorating their lives to help them forge ahead toward achieving their goals. From fine-tuning each family member's personal appearance, to architectural face-lifts of the home, to completely loaded cars and even something special for the pets, nothing is left undone on this life-altering makeover series.

This November Sweeps, FOX Saturday night features all-new COPS Special Editions as the appetizer, COPS encores to cleanse the palate, all-new AMERICA'S MOST WANTED: AMERICA FIGHTS BACK Special Editions as the main course and all-new scoops of MADtv as the satisfying dessert.

From dramatic rescues to spectacular car chases to undercover drug raids and domestic disputes, COPS has captured vivid and often unsparing glimpses into the human condition in its 17 seasons - expect more of the same this November Sweeps. Saturday, Nov. 6 (8:00-8:30 PM ET/PT) starts off with an all-new COPS: TAZED AND CONFUSED SPECIAL EDITION. The following week on Saturday, Nov. 13 (8:00-8:30 PM ET/PT), suspects refuse to cooperate with authorities on COPS: RESISTING ARREST #3 SPECIAL EDITION. On the last all-new Sweeps episode Saturday, Nov. 20 (8:00-8:30 PM ET/PT), officers are on the trail of wild female criminals on the COPS: BAD GIRLS #6 SPECIAL EDITION.

AMERICA'S MOST WANTED: AMERICA FIGHTS BACK takes on the nation's hottest crime issues this November Sweeps with original, all-new episodes. The crime-fighting program presents the "Locked in the Trunk of a Speeding Car Special Edition" on Saturday, Nov. 6 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT), the "Serial Rapist Survivor Special Edition" on Saturday, Nov. 13 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) and the "Bad Girls #6 Special Edition" on Saturday, Nov. 20 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT).

MADtv roasts, fries and steams up special guests and spot-on parodies this November Sweeps (Saturdays, Nov. 6, 13, 20 and 27, 11:00 PM-MIDNIGHT ET/PT). Guest stars scheduled to highlight the comedy menu include Alanis Morissette; FOX's own Masterson brothers, Danny (THAT '70s SHOW) and Chris (MALCOLM IN THE MIDDLE); and Marilyn Manson, who tops it all off with an enticing musical performance.

Forget reheated leftovers! This Thanksgiving weekend, feast on FOX's marathon of World Broadcast Premiere movies instead, starting off with the box office smash SPIDER-MAN on Thanksgiving day, Thursday, Nov. 25 (8:00-10:30 PM ET/PT). Starring Tobey Maguire and Kirsten Dunst, SPIDER-MAN comes to life when a genetically engineered spider bites teen science wiz Peter Parker and alters his body chemistry, enabling him with super-human spider-like qualities.

On Friday, Nov. 26 (8:00-10:00 PM ET/PT), FOX invites you to chow down with Adam Sandler. On the World Broadcast Premiere of MR. DEEDS, Longfellow Deeds, a pizzeria owner and poet, inherits $40 billion from his deceased uncle, and he quickly begins rolling in a different kind of dough. Moving to the big city, Deeds finds himself besieged by opportunists, all gunning for their piece of the pie. Ultimately, Deeds comes to find that money truly has the power to change things, but it doesn't necessarily need to change him.

Tommy Lee Jones and Will Smith are back in black as scum-fighting super-agents Kay and Jay in the out-of-this-world World Broadcast Premiere of MEN IN BLACK II Saturday, Nov. 27 (8:00-10:00 PM ET/PT). Their latest mission: to save the world from a total intergalactic disaster! When a renegade Kylothian monster disguised as a lingerie model threatens the survival of the human race, the agents get the call to step up and get busy.

And remember to leave room for the World Broadcast Premiere of ICE AGE on Sunday, Nov. 28 (7:00-9:00 PM ET/PT). Back when the Earth was being overrun by glaciers, and animals were scurrying to save themselves from the upcoming Ice Age, a stupid sloth, a woolly mammoth, a saber-toothed tiger and an acorn-loving squirrel are forced to become unlikely heroes. The four reluctantly come together to return a human child to its father while braving the deadly elements of the impending Ice Age.

Additional FOX November schedule information will be announced soon.
