Murder, mayhem and revenge are on the docket this November on PRISON BREAK, which kicks off with a special two-hour event on Monday, Nov. 5 (8:00-10:00 PM ET/PT). Lincoln is forced to tell Michael about Sara's murder, leading Michael to take drastic action against a fellow prisoner and place the escape from Sona in danger in the "Photo Finish/Vamonos" episode. On Monday, Nov. 12 (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT) in the "Bang & Burn" episode, Michael finds a surprising new ally in Sona; Susan takes the escape into her own hands; and Lincoln and Sucre race to save LJ. In "Boxed In" (Monday, Nov. 19, 8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT), Michael suffers the consequences of solitary � Sona-style � and a mystery woman makes her way to Panama to find Michael. And on Monday, Nov. 26 (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT) in "Dirt Nap," a coup in Sona brings Michael's escape plan crashing down and leaves the Panamanian hellhole with one less prisoner.

This November on K-VILLE, the cop duo of Boulet and Cobb investigate unthinkable crimes and schemes facing a post-Katrina New Orleans. When Cobb revisits his criminal past in the sizzling "AKA" episode airing Monday, Nov. 12 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT), he goes undercover and makes very risky decisions to assist with an ongoing investigation. On Monday, Nov. 19 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) in the "Melissa" episode, a plastic surgeon is found dead after what appears to be a transaction gone bad. As the investigation unfolds, clues surface revealing deep motivations behind the heinous crime. In "Flood, Wind, and Fire" (Monday, Nov 26, 9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT), things heat up when Boulet and Cobb uncover details surrounding the murder of an insurance adjuster whose body is found in one of the city's flooded areas.

TUESDAY

Look no further than the Jeffersonian Institute and Princeton Plainsboro Teaching Hospital for murder and medical mysteries on Tuesday nights this November, as BONES and HOUSE serve up four all-new episodes each.

In the first November installment of BONES, "Intern in the Incinerator" airing Tuesday, Nov. 6 (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT), Brennan and Booth investigate the murder of a Jeffersonian employee whose charred remains are found in the building's incinerator, making their own colleagues prime suspects. The following week in the "Boy in the Time Capsule" episode (Tuesday, Nov. 13, 8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT), an enthusiastic group of high school alumni reunite to unearth a time capsule buried 20 years prior, only to find the body of one of their teenage classmates inside. As the Jeffersonian team combs through the victim's decades-old secrets, they rehash some high school memories of their own.

After construction workers find the body of an archbishop whose kneecaps were surgically removed, the team is back on the case of the Widow's Son serial killer in "The Knight on the Grid" airing Tuesday, Nov. 20 (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT). In the final November episode of BONES, "The Baby in the Bough" (Tuesday, Nov. 27, 8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT), Booth and Brennan venture to the hometown of a woman whose car was run off the road � and whose baby miraculously survived the accident � and try to find out who wanted her dead.

House and his fellowship candidates take on baffling cases this month as the competition at Princeton Plainsboro for the slots on House's team comes to an exciting conclusion. In "Whatever It Takes" airing Tuesday, Nov. 6 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT), House is recruited by the CIA to treat an agent with an illness as mysterious as his previous assignments, and Michael Michele guest-stars as a CIA doctor who offers up very little information about the operative's history. Meanwhile, the fellowship candidates race to diagnose a stock car driver who passed out after a race. In "Ugly" (Tuesday, Nov. 13, 9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT), House and his team are followed by a documentary film crew as they treat a teenager with a major facial deformity who suffered a heart attack prior to a reconstructive procedure. As they work to diagnose the teen, House finds himself distracted by several of the candidates vying for a spot on his team, causing him to question his own motives for having chosen them. Next, in the Tuesday, Nov. 20 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) episode "You Don't Want to Know," House encounters a magician whose heart failed while performing an underwater escape act. While the remaining fellowship candidates work to diagnose the illusionist, House is determined to prove that he's a scam artist faking his ailments to cover up the fact that he nearly drowned during his act. In "Games" (Tuesday, Nov. 27, 9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT), House assigns the candidates to a particularly challenging case � involving an uncooperative, over-the-hill former rock star with a history of drug abuse and civil disobedience � while Cuddy orders House to make a final decision and hire the members of his team.

WEDNESDAY

FOX Wednesday is all-new this November and jam-packed with must-see happenings: four hot-scoop episodes of BACK TO YOU; four hilarious visits with �TIL DEATH's newlyweds and far-from-newlyweds; and four tasty restaurant rehab sessions with Chef Gordon Ramsay on KITCHEN NIGHTMARES.

This just in, BACK TO YOU has the exclusive on newsroom laughs this November Sweeps! First up, in "Gracie's Bully" (Wednesday, Nov. 7, 8:00-8:30 PM ET/PT), Gracie's class takes a field trip to the WURG newsroom, and Chuck and Kelly intervene when they meet the bully who has been tormenting her.

Eddie offends Jeff at his birthday dinner when he forgets to give him a gift in the first all-new November installment of �TIL DEATH, "Vintage Eddie" (Wednesday, Nov. 7, 8:30-9:00 PM ET/PT). Eddie recovers by re-gifting Joy's super-expensive bottle of wine, which she had been saving, and then is forced to try to get it back. The following week in "Bedtime Stories" (Wednesday, Nov. 14, 8:30-9:00 PM ET/PT), Joy purchases a pair of new bedside lamps, but since one is broken, she and Eddie wage an all-out battle over the working one.

And on Wednesday, Nov. 28 (8:30-9:00 PM ET/PT), a large-and-in-charge Jeff becomes acting principal of the school, but when he has a chance to shine by making an important decision, he chokes and winds up suspending Eddie in the "No More Mr. Vice Guy" episode.

Famed chef Gordon Ramsay takes off his apron, steps out of his own kitchen and hits the road to rescue restaurant owners in crisis this November in four all-new servings of KITCHEN NIGHTMARES. First up on Wednesday, Nov. 7 (9:00-10:00 ET/PT), Chef Gordon pays a visit to Sebastian's, a Burbank, CA, restaurant in pure chaos, where the wait staff are more focused on landing Hollywood acting gigs than serving their tables. Gordon goes head-to-head with owner Sebastian, who's about one inch away from chasing him out of the kitchen for good. Across the country at Finn McCool's in West Hampton, NY, Chef Gordon meets Buddy, a retired dad who poured his entire life savings into the family restaurant, and his son, Brian, the head chef who is making everyone unhappy � including the customers. Gordon is forced to make some serious changes that could affect this family forever in the Wednesday, Nov. 14 (9:00-10:00 ET/PT) edition of KITCHEN NIGHTMARES.

The following week on Wednesday, Nov. 21 (9:00-10:00 ET/PT), Chef Gordon heads to Pomona, CA, to try to rev up business for Lela's, an upscale restaurant in desperate need of clientele. After Gordon criticizes the menu, he and the executive chef have a showdown in front of the entire staff. In the final November episode of KITCHEN NIGHTMARES (Wednesday, Nov. 28, 9:00-10:00 ET/PT), Chef Gordon heads to Campania, a Fairmount, NJ, Italian restaurant that is losing more money than it's making. After Gordon makes some serious changes, they have a grand reopening, but just when everything seems to be going smoothly, the cops crash the party!

THURSDAY

The stakes are high and the competition fierce on Thursdays this November, when FOX offers up four all-new, all-star hours of the A+ quiz show ARE YOU SMARTER THAN A 5th GRADER?, including a special two-hour installment**; two all-new episodes of the karaoke sing-off DON'T FORGET THE LYRICS!; and the World Broadcast Premiere of comedy smash DODGEBALL on Thanksgiving night.

In four all-new, all-star November Sweeps hours of ARE YOU SMARTER THAN A 5th GRADER?, host Jeff Foxworthy welcomes new students to the class � celebrity contestants Clay Aiken and Regis Philbin during a two-hour episode (Thursday, Nov. 1, 8:00-10:00 PM ET/PT)**; Tony Hawk (Thursday, Nov. 8, 8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT); and Billy Bush and Kellie Pickler (Thursday, Nov. 15, 8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT) � as the celebs try to prove their smarts, competing for their favorite charities. In this atypical game show that tests these celebs' lack of knowledge � as revealed by how much they've forgotten since grammar school � they find themselves revisiting the classroom, tackling subjects they've already been taught, from art to geography and math to social studies. When the questions prove to be challenging, the celebrity contestants are not alone; there is a way to "cheat" in this classroom. They can get some elementary help by using a "peek," "copy" or "save" from actual 5th grade classmates to determine the correct a-n-s-w-e-r and graduate toward the top prize.

**EDITOR'S NOTE: If World Series Game #7 is necessary, the baseball game will air live starting at 8:00 PM ET/5:00 PM PT, replacing ARE YOU SMARTER THAN A 5th GRADER?, and local programming will air in primetime on the West Coast.

Crank up the volume and sing along with all-new episodes of DON'T FORGET THE LYRICS! (Thursdays, Nov. 8 and 15, 9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT), hosted by Wayne Brady. Choosing songs from different genres, decades and musical artists, contestants take center stage to sing alongside the studio band as the lyrics are projected on-screen. When the music suddenly stops and the words disappear, will the contestants belt out the correct missing lyric, or freeze under pressure? After each correct response, contestants must decide to "Stay & Play" or "Take the Money & Run." If they sing nine songs correctly, they are presented with a No. 1 hit and one final missing lyric for a chance to win the top prize of $1 million. It's that simple: 10 songs, 10 missing lyrics, 1 million dollars.

On Thanksgiving night, Thursday, Nov. 22 (8:00-10:00 PM ET/PT), Vince Vaughn, Ben Stiller, Christine Taylor, Rip Torn, Stephen Root and Justin Long belly up to the FOX table with the World Broadcast Premiere of DODGEBALL. When Peter La Fleur's (Vaughn) rundown gym, Average Joe's, catches the eye of Globo Gym's egotistical White Goodman (Stiller), it doesn't look like much can be done to stop the takeover. But Average Joe's less-than-average clientele (Root and Long), along with attorney Kate Veatch (Taylor), aren't ready to give up their humble recreation center, and they enter a winner-takes-all dodgeball tournament against Globo Gym's Purple Cobras. Can the Average Joes compete against Goodman's super-tough team and save their gym in time?

FRIDAY

Don't bother checking your amp, because this one goes to 11! FOX Friday drops full nights of pulse-pounding, toe-tapping music this November � four all-new episodes of THE NEXT GREAT AMERICAN BAND, including a special two-hour event, and three all-new Friday-night installments of DON'T FORGET THE LYRICS!

Tune up your guitars and rock out on Friday nights this November with THE NEXT GREAT AMERICAN BAND, beginning with a special two-hour episode on Friday, Nov. 2 (8:00-10:00 PM ET/PT). Judges John Rzeznik (The Goo Goo Dolls), legendary percussionist and performer Sheila E. ("The Glamorous Life," "A Love Bizarre") and Australian TV personality Ian "Dicko" Dickson ("Australian Idol") narrowed down hundreds of undiscovered band hopefuls to 12 semifinalists, and America voted on who made the cut for the Top 10. Now watch as the Top 10 take the stage to prove they still have what it takes to earn the judges' approval and rock America's votes. Host Dominic Bowden ("New Zealand Idol") will reveal America's Top 8 favorite bands the following week when the show moves to its regular timeslot on Friday, Nov. 9 (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT). Then, on Friday, Nov. 16 (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT), see if the bands can take the pressure and strike the right chords as the Top 7 bands perform on their way to becoming music superstars.

The battle continues on Friday, Nov. 23 (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT) as the remaining 6 bands are announced, bringing them another step closer to securing a contract with 19 Recordings and the title of "The Next Great American Band."

Wayne Brady hosts three all-new special Friday-night installments of DON'T FORGET THE LYRICS! this November (Fridays, Nov. 9, 16 and 23, 9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT). It's karaoke do-or-die as contestants must remember song lyrics while singing in front of millions of viewers. If they can handle the pressure and correctly croon 10 missing lyrics from 10 songs, they'll go home $1 million richer.

After an evening of reckless babysitting, Cotton and Bobby crash the dinner party, and Cotton's luck with cheating death seems to have finally run out.

After buying tough, unsavory steaks at the Mega-Lo-Mart, Hank visits the town co-op in search of better meat, and the entire Hill family falls in love with the delicious organic food. But when the co-op is bought out by the Mega-Lo-Mart corporation and doesn't live up to the original co-op "fresh" mentality, Hank and Appleseed start their own mini co-op farm in Hank's backyard in the "Raise the Steaks" installment airing Sunday, Nov. 18 (8:30-9:00 PM ET/PT).
