It’s a quieter TV week as November sweeps wind down, and American Thanksgiving ushers in the holiday season (and, of course, Black Friday). A couple of miniseries based on popular novels could fill your spare time, or if you’re fascinated by the mistakes Americans make when choosing their leaders, there are documentaries about Nixon and Clinton. Finally, Jane Lynch is back with another season of Hollywood Game Night. Happy viewing.
