Smallville Smallville

8/7c CW
The unexpected arrival of Lois' father and sister (Michael Ironside and Peyton List) means there'll be no time for Lois and Clark to sit back and rest after a turkey dinner. Caught between General Lane's efforts in favor of the vigilante registration act and her soft spot for one particular superhero, Lois is torn between the two men in her life. And when Lucy gets unwittingly involved in a plot by Rick Flagg (Ted Whittall) to kill the General, all thoughts of an uneventful Thanksgiving holiday fly out the window. — Rhoda Charles

The Celtics' opening-night win over Miami showed that, contrary to popular belief, the Heat have not yet clinched a berth in the NBA Finals. Boston is still the beast of the East and gets its next test tonight against the always-entertaining Chicago Bulls. While star guard Derrick Rose and whirling dervish Joakim Noah seem to get better every game, the absence of free-agent signee Carlos Boozer to a finger injury makes things challenging for new coach Tom Thibodeau, who spent the last three seasons as an assistant coach in Boston. The loudest ovation at TD Garden may be reserved for former Celtics fan favorite Brian Scalabrine, a part of the Bulls' frontcourt rotation. — Roger Leister
