Country stars, rockin' Aerosmith, a new show and a Christmas movie - already? - are on tap for this weekend's TV.
It's country's biggest night and Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood are at it for the fifth time as the dynamic hosting duo of "The 46th Annual Country Music Association Awards," airing live at 7 p.m. Thursday on ABC, channel 8.
The event, which honors the best of country music, will feature performers including Jason Aldean, Dierks Bentley, Luke Bryan, Kenny Chesney, Eric Church, Kelly Clarkson, Eli Young Band, Brantley Gilbert, Vince Gill, Hunter Hayes, Faith Hill, Lady Antebellum, Miranda Lambert, Little Big Town, Tim McGraw, Paisley, Oklahoma's Blake Shelton, Taylor Swift, The Band Perry, Underwood, Keith Urban and Zac Brown Band.
Confirmed presenters include actor/comedian Tim Allen, "Nashville" stars Connie Britton and Hayden Panettiere, Olympic gymnast Shawn Johnson, country music singer and actress Jana Kramer, country star Jake Owen, singer Lisa Marie Presley, multimedia superstar Oklahoma's Reba McEntire, CMA Awards nominee Darius Rucker, and actress-director-producer Kimberly Williams-Paisley.
Steven Tyler and Aerosmith will make their morning show debut by performing live Friday morning on the "Today" show. The talk show airs 7-9 a.m. on NBC, channel 2, cable 9, and the musical portion is usually the last 30 minutes.
Tyler, who was a judge on "American Idol," and the band have sold more than 100 million albums around the globe. Their 15th studio release is the album "Music From Another Dimension."
ABC has one new show and the return to an old show Friday.
At 7 p.m., Tim Allen is back in "Last Man Standing," a comedy about a traditional manly man who is outnumbered by his wife and three daughters and wants his grandson to grow up to be a he-man.
At 8 p.m., Oklahoma native Reba McEntire takes a breather from country music stardom to play a character named Reba in the new sitcom "Malibu Country."
It seems Reba the character isn't putting up with her cheatin' hubby any more, and she decides to take the kids (and grandma, played by Lily Tomlin) to California to restart the music career she gave up to start a family.
Both air on ABC, channel 8.
I know, I know, it's not even Thanksgiving and already the Christmas movies are debuting. Just go with it.
Hallmark Channel starts off with "Christmas Song," a new film about a Christmas Carol competition, premiering at 7 p.m. Saturday on cable 165.
It seems rival music teachers and their award-winning choral groups have been merged into one and things are more than a little crowded, Natasha Henstridge and Gabriel Hogan star as the two who musically duel for the position of music department director at the new Carter-Cresswell Academy.
On Sunday, Hallmark gets its season right with "Love at the Thanksgiving Day Parade."
The film, starring Autumn Reeser and Antonio Cupo, focuses on a clash over coordination of the Windy City's annual Thanksgiving parade.
The film airs at 7 p.m. on cable 165.
