Big-name guest stars, music specials and the "Dancing With the Stars" season finale pack Thanksgiving week. Some programs worth remembering:

1. "Dancing With the Stars" will have the final four couples dance at 8 p.m. Monday on ABC. The season champ will be named in a two-hour finale at 9 p.m. Tuesday. Kellie Pickler and TLC perform Monday. Lady Antebellum and Enrique Iglesias sing Tuesday. Any of the four finalists could win. Comedian Bill Engvall may be the worst dancer, but he has a strong fan base. Reality star Jack Osbourne has been the most-improved celebrity over the season. "High School Musical" favorite Corbin Bleu is the most skilled dancer. "Glee" actress Amber Riley has battled injury to make her case for winning that ugly mirrorball trophy. I give her an edge, because she is dancing with Derek Hough. If Engvall wins, the show's reputation could be seriously hurt.

2. The final eight perform on "The Voice" at 8 p.m. Monday on NBC. The results will be announced at 9 p.m. Tuesday.  Robin Thicke will perform on Monday's show. Coach CeeLo Green and Ellie Goulding will sing on Tuesday's show.

3. James Van Der Beek returns as Robin's former boyfriend on "How I Met Your Mother" at 8 p.m. Monday on CBS. Oscar-winner Susan Sarandon will drop by "Mike & Molly" at 9 on CBS. Science-fiction fans will find fare to their liking on Fox in "Almost Human" at 8 p.m. and "Sleepy Hollow" at 9.

4. "The Blacklist" returns to the schedule at 10 p.m. Monday on NBC. Ritchie Coster plays the newest member of the black list. Donald (Diego Klattenhoff) is kept busy trying to protect Red (James Spader), who is one of NBC's most valuable assets these days.

5. "NCIS" will be preempted by "Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer" at 8 p.m. Tuesday on CBS. The network will end the night with wrenching drama as "Person of Interest" explores the response to Carter's murder at 10 p.m.

6. Michael Buble will sing on both nights of "The X Factor" at 8 p.m. Wednesday and Thursday on Fox. Demi Lovato performs on Thursday's show. Two Central Florida acts -- Lillie McCloud and Alex & Sierra -- remain in the competition. Mentor Simon Cowell raved last week that Alex & Sierra could go all the way.

7. Lake Mary High grad Monica Culpepper, who grew up in Longwood, remains in the running on "Survivor" at 8 p.m. Wednesday on CBS. But Hayden Moss, who won "Big Brother" in 2010, looks the most formidable. He is dating Kat Edorsson of Orlando who was eliminated earlier.

8. Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade will be covered by NBC from 9 a.m. to noon Thursday. Matt Lauer, Al Roker and Savannah Guthrie of "Today" serve as hosts. CBS offers its coverage from 9 a.m. to noon. Kevin Frazier and Thea Andrews of "omg! Insider" serve as hosts.

9. CBS offers something unusual in the live broadcast of "Garth Brooks, Live from Las Vegas" at 9 p.m. Friday. The two-hour show records Brooks' last performance of his one-man show at the Wynn Las Vegas.

10. TV specials helped Barbra Streisand reach stardom in the 1960s. She will be back in a "Great Performances" special at 9 p.m. Friday on PBS. The special "Back to Brooklyn" records her performance in her hometown at the Barclays Center. She is joined by trumpeter Chris Botti, Il Volo and Jason Gould, who is Streisand's son.
