BBC AMERICA NOVEMBER HIGHLIGHTS

WOULD YOU RATHER? WITH GRAHAM NORTON - WORLD PREMIERE

Graham Norton asks the important questions and we find out the hilarious answers in the all-new BBC AMERICA original comedy panel show Would You Rather? with Graham Norton. Based on popular British panel-style shows, each week celebrities and comedians are asked to contemplate and discuss ridiculous predicaments, for example: would you rather eat only dog food for a year or get shot in the knee? After a hilarious and candid debate the panelists must ultimately decide what they'd rather do and Graham picks his favorite response. The results are tabulated in the end and like every game in America, there is a winner. Would You Rather? with Graham Norton premieres Saturday, November 5, 11:00pm and 11:30pm ET/PT following The Graham Norton Show as part of the Ministry of Laughs. Twitter: #WouldYouRather

PRIMEVAL SEASON 5 - U.S. PREMIERE

Something sinister is happening to the Primeval team. In the highly-anticipated fifth season, dark secrets bubble to the surface, testing relationships to the limit as anomalies become more unpredictable and numerous, with more far reaching consequences than ever before. The end of the world seems to be just around the corner - will the team be able to stop the approaching apocalypse before it's too late? Primeval premieres Saturday, November 12, 9:00pm ET/PT as part of Supernatural Saturdays. Twitter: #Primeval

THE TUDORS SEASONS 3 & 4 - BBC AMERICA PREMIERE

The Tudors returns to BBC AMERICA, continuing the story of how King Henry VIII's scandalous reign changed the course of history forever and starring some of the UK's finest talent including Jonathan Rhys-Meyers (Match Point, Mission Impossible III) as Henry VIII, Jeremy Northam (Gosford Park) as Thomas More, Henry Cavill (Man of Steel, Tristan & Isolde) as Charles Brandon, and Natalie Dormer (The Fades, Casanova) as Ann Boleyn. In season 3, the focus falls on Henry's marriages to Jane Seymour and Anne of Cleves while Season 4 chronicles his relationships with Katherine Howard and Katherine Parr, as well as his attempted invasion of France. The Tudors premieres Wednesday, November 16, 9:00pm ET/PT followed by Dramaville's Whitechapel. Twitter: #TheTudors

TOP GEAR TOP 40 - WORLD PREMIERE

Through the years, the Top Gear trio have taken on a truckload of challenges and BBC AMERICA is looking to name the best of the best. We narrowed it down to 45 of the most ambitious, most ridiculous auto stunts the Top Gear guys have been able to pull off...or at least made a valiant effort to do so. With that many races, tests and all-out vehicular battles, ordering them wasn't exactly easy, so we opened it up for fans to vote at BBCAmerica.com. Amphibious cars? The race across London? The best driving road? The results are in and now we'll see what the fans have chosen as their...Top Gear Top 40. Top Gear Top 40 premieres Monday, November 28, with back-to-back premiere episodes at 8:00pm & 9:00pm ET/PT each week. Twitter: #TopGearTop40
