Television's all-time most important and impressive newsmagazine, See It Now, was also its first. It began Nov. 18, 1951 in an almost hidden timeslot — 3:30 on a Sunday afternoon — with reporter Edward R. Murrow and Director Don Hewitt broadcasting live from a cramped CBS News studio...

I still consider this 1939 family classic a holiday tradition – but any time it’s televised, I feel compelled to point it out. Tonight, TBS shows The Wizard of Oz twice, at 7 p.m. ET and again at 9:15. The good news is, it’s on a Saturday night, the weekend before Thanksgiving, when families already may be starting to gather. The bad news is, TBS presents the movie with commercial interruptions – something you won’t have to endure if you wait until the film is shown

Tonight, TCM begins a repeat cycle of this year’s The Essentials visit by Tina Fey, appearing with her former 30 Rock co-star Alec Baldwin, host of The Essentials, to co-host and present and comment upon some of her own favorite movies. The first film she chose is also part of this month’s James Stewart TCM tribute: the 1954 Alfred Hitchcock classic Rear Window, co-starring Grace Kelly, and featuring one of Alfred Hitchcock’s best visual concepts for a film – and that&rsq

It’s a clash of powerful forces tonight, as one character begins to learn the extent of her mystical powers. But is it too little, too late? Or just in time? And on this show, what does time mean anyway? If you haven’t been watching, I don’t have the time to explain…

Tonight’s scheduled guests include Hugh Grant, whose appearance on Jay Leno’s The Tonight Show was one of the most famous, and infamous, talk-show moments in TV history. They also include Kelly Clarkson, whose past contains much less controversy – and who just completed a nice stint as guest advisor on NBC’s The Voice.

Tonight’s guest host and musical guests are both musical, and both from the same genre of music. The host is Chance the Rapper, and the musical guest, by chance, is Eminem.

DOCUMENTARY PREMIERE: This two-part, four-hour documentary on the 1959 murder case immortalized by Truman Capote in In Cold Blood is chilling. It uses period audio recordings and film clips, as well as new audio of the victims' relatives, speaking for the first time about the case, to present a fuller portrait than ever before of the senseless slaughter of a Kansas family. Capote enters the story midway through tonight's Part 1, but the entire documentary is well worth viewing, for what it says
