BURBANK, Calif. � November 6, 2007 � Sleuth kicks off November with a diverse lineup of mystery mixed with laughs -- and some of Hollywood's biggest stars on Thanksgiving -- as the network presents a bountiful spread of entertainment

"We really pulled out all the stops this month," said Dan Harrison, Senior Vice President, Emerging Networks, NBC Universal Cable. "We have some of Hollywood's biggest box-office draws, and even a few Oscar winners on Sleuth this month. I am proud of the variety of programming we are offering."

Along with the popular MURDER MONDAYS, ACTION WEDNESDAYS and WEEKEND STAKEOUT, Sleuth is offering BANDIT THURSDAYS (8 p.m. and 11 p.m. ET).
