Sleuth! Celebrates Thanksgiving; ABC Schedules 'Show Me the Money' Premiere After 'Stars'

The Sleuth Network is keeping November full of mystery with its Thanksgiving lineup. Viewers are treated to marathons of their favorite programming throughout the holiday weekend.
Viewers can spend Thanksgiving Day in Miami with their favorite detectives, Crockett and Tubbs for an eight-hour Miami Vice Marathon beginning at 12pm (ET). There are no stale leftovers the next day on Sleuth! On Friday, November 24, audiences can relax with five hours of Joe Friday during Sleuth's LA Dragnet Marathon, starting at 12pm (ET). Immediately following will be the Miami Vice Guest Star Marathon at 5pm (ET), which will feature episodes with Bruce Willis, Annette Bening, John Leguizamo and Lou Diamond Phillips.
On Saturday, November 25, Sleuth will offer a Simon & Simon Saturday Marathon, beginning at 12pm (ET). Viewers can spend four hours with the Simon brothers' favorite four-legged clients, accompanied by a couple of dolphins.
And Sleuth's first original production, America's Top Sleuths, showcases the top sleuths ever created for television and film. Chosen by the channel's online audience and featuring interviews with Bruce Willis, Cybil Shepherd, Peter Falk, Telly Savalas, Stephen J. Cannell, Jesse Martin and many more, America's Top Sleuths airs Friday, November 24 at 9pm and 1am and Sunday, November 26 at 5pm (all times ET).

Meanwhile, ABC has moved the two-hour Barbara Walters Special from Tuesday, November 14 to Thursday, November 16 and Friday, November 17 in one-hour slots instead. Why? The 90-minute premiere of the new game show Show Me the Money hosted by William Shatner will premiere Tuesday, November 14 from 9:30-11pm, following the last dance show for Dancing with the Stars season three. Show Me the Money will regularly air Wednesdays at 8 p.m. starting November 22 on ABC.
