It’s a holiday week and you know what that means: lots of food, lots of family, lots of TV. So should you add The X Factor to your Thanksgiving viewing schedule? Yes indeed! The show is one of the few reality series that will be new this Thursday, November 28, and it sounds like it’s gonna be a good one.

The fun begins Wednesday night with a two-hour live show from 8 to 10 p.m. on November 27. The Top 8 will take on big band classics before Thursday night’s elimination, which sadly, is once again a double elimination! That means two acts will be sent home during the one-hour November 28 episode. At least they’ll have all plenty of tasty comfort food.

As if yet another double elimination isn’t enough of a reason to tune in between your second and third helpings of pumpkin pie, The X Factor will also have a very special guest performer for the evening. It’s the show’s very own judge, Demi Lovato! And that’s in addition to the very special treat of a Michael Bublé performance, which is pretty much the perfect way to set the holiday mood.

Will you be watching X Factor on Thanksgiving, or just checking in later for the results? Share your thoughts in the comments below. Thanksgiving dinner recipes also welcome.
