Happy Thanksgiving!

We have a very special holiday episode of Home & Family today, and we get everything started with the Philadelphia native whose career spans three generations. Frankie Avalon was one of the original "Teenage Idol's" and has a long string of Gold Records, movie credits, and adoring fans! Today Frankie flexes his golden pipes and performs some of his most popular hits.

And later, move over "Iron Chef" today our guest's team up for a rousing game of "Brown Bag Side Dish Wars!" The timer 'dings' and it's into the Home & Family kitchen to create some one of a kind holiday side dishes. "Top Chef" favorite Fabio Viviani and "Mr. Spelling" Dean McDermott join in the fun and games too! Plus, Personal Chef and Culinary Instructor RJ DiCamillo has the tips you need to perfectly carve your Thanksgiving Turkey.

And what would Thanksgiving be without football? That's why we've got host of NFL Networks "Total Access," Amber Theoharis for the inaugural "Home and Family Football Challenge!" And later, Alex Newell from "Glee" is back to showcase his incredible voice as well as some great holiday gifts! And if you're planning hitting the theatre this weekend, Mark & Sandie Newton have a special holiday edition of "Reel Talk" with previews of "Rise of the Guardians" and "Hitchcock."

And of course, from all of us at Home & Family and Hallmark Channel, we wish you and your family a very Happy Thanksgiving!
