Happy Day Before Thanksgiving!
Note: There will be no "Welcome Matt" updates Thursday or Friday.

Here are the movies opening today:
* Australia -- Aussie actors Nicole Kidman and Hugh Jackman team up for this World War Two epic. Kidman is a British aristocrat who inherits an Australian ranch she's in danger of losing to cattle barons. To save her land, she gets the help of a cattle driver, played by Jackman. Rated PG-13.

* Four Christmases -- Vince Vaughn and Reese Witherspoon are a couple who's forced to visit each one of their four divorced parents, much to their dismay. Robert Duvall, Jon Favreau, Mary Steenburgen, and country music singers Dwight Yoakam and Tim McGraw also star. Rated PG-13.

* Transporter 3 -- The first Transporter movie in three years has Jason Staham reprising his role as Frank Martin, an ex-Special Forces operative. He has to transport the kidnapped daughter of a Ukrainian official across Europe. Rated PG-13.

Rosie O'Donnell comes to primetime TV tonight in her NBC variety special Rosie Live. If the former View co-host stays true to form, you can expect her to stir up some sort of controversy on the one-hour program, which will begin with a monologue from O'Donnell. She'll be joined during the show by guest stars Alec Baldwin and Jane Krakowski of 30 Rock, Rachel Ray, Liza Minnelli, Kathy Griffin, Harry Connicl Jr., Ne-Yo, Alanis Morrissette, Clay Aiken and Gloria Estefan. Rosie Live airs on NBC tonight at 7 p.m.

Brooke Burke won Dancing With the Stars...hurray! Okay, now bring on NBC's new show, Superstars of Dance.

Well this is...sucky. STAR Artist Daughtry has pushed back the release of their next CD to summer of 2009. It's Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince all over again! The band members are headed home for the Thanksgiving holiday - which is a good thing because two of their wives are preggers!

STAR Artist David Cook hasn't had much time to get back home to Kansas City thanks to the whirlwind of activity with American Idol and putting out his first album. But for Thanksgiving he'll finally be able to make it back home. That leaves Idol runner-up David Archuleta the duty of riding and performing in the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade.

STAR Artist Nickelback has just announced plans to tour in support of their new album, "Dark Horse." No, not concert in Green Bay, but they will be at the Bradley Center in Milwaukee on March 14th.
