Now that Thanksgiving is behind us, we're looking ahead to some returning primetime favorites and also, saying farewell to a few shows until the new year.
Among this week's notable premieres: A Thanksgiving-themed "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition" special on Monday; the second half of "Leverage's" fifth season beginning on Tuesday, and the return of TV Land's "Hot in Cleveland" on Wednesday.
Elsewhere in the week, we bid adieu to "Dancing with the Stars: All-Stars" for the season, while "Revolution," "Once Upon A Time," "The Good Wife" and "The Walking Dead" go on hiatus until January. Our Sundays are looking pretty sparse this winter ...
