The CW has announced a Nov. 19 return date for Reba, starring country crooner Reba McEntire. The comedy will air two episodes, a rerun followed by a fresh one, on Sundays starting at 7 pm/ET.

Meanwhile, for the next time an hourlong slot on the CW's slate opens up, a setside source tells that Dawson's Creek creator Kevin Williamson's steamy new serial, Hidden Palms, is laying in wait, champing at the bit to hit prime-time sooner than its originally expected January 2007 debut.
