?Diary of Kobe Bryant
MTV 10:30 PM
It's Kobe unplugged, as the Lakers' star reveals his most intimate thoughts about Shaq ("He tells me all the time, 'Kobe, I'll be your bodyguard' "), facing Michael again ("It's not something I'm circling on my calendar") and fidelity to Vanessa, his new bride ("My message to the women out there still trying to kick it to me: off-limits"). Now if MTV can get Kobe and six other strangers to share a house together for six months, it will have a major hit on its hands.
?EMC World Cup Final Round
ABC 4 PM
Save for Chevy Chase and Rodney Dangerfield in Caddyshack, is there a more telegenic tandem in golf than Tiger Woods and David Duval? The dream team will be in Gotemba City, Japan, this week to defend its World Cup championship against a field of two-man teams representing 24 countries. The tournament will feature two days of foursomes, two days of four-ball and, no doubt, an entire weekend of ABC fawning over Tiger, who also won the event, with Mark O'Meara, in 1999.
?Packers at Lions
?Broncos at Cowboys
FOX 12:30 PM AND CBS 4 PM
It's appropriate that the 0-8 Lions are hosting the opening game of the annual Thanksgiving Day doubleheader, because there's no team in the NFL that's a bigger turkey. As for the latter half of the foul doubleheader, the thought of new Cowboys quarterback Ryan Leaf heaving passes is enough to give us indigestion. Bon app�tit, Broncos!
? Lennox Lewis vs. Hasim Rahman
HBO PAY-PER-VIEW 9 PM
On Aug. 30, in a scene seemingly inspired by Mr. T's portrayal of Clubber Lang in Rocky III, Lewis and Rahman went toe-to-toe during ESPN's now defunct show, Up Close. After Rahman questioned Lewis's manhood and Lewis insulted Rahman's sister, Lewis grabbed Rahman's jacket and wrestled the IBF and WBC champ to the floor. Both fighters rolled over a table—which collapsed faster than you can say Peter McNeeley—before the combatants were separated by members of their respective camps. At $49.95 one can only hope that the fight at the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino in Las Vegas, a rematch of Rahman's stunning fifth-round knockout on April 22, will be as dramatic as either one of the previous Lewis-Rahman battles.
