TV picks for Nov. 21: ‘Final Table,’ ‘Growing Pains,’ ‘Double Dare’
Show me that smile again
Spend your Thanksgiving holiday with the Seaver family by devouring every single episode of Growing Pains, the sitcom that temporarily made Kirk Cameron a teen heartthrob. Leonardo DiCaprio joined the cast in Season 7, but since the 166 episodes are being presented in order, you wont see the Oscar winner until deep into the weekend.
Starts at 7 p.m., Antenna TV
Former Good Burger castmates Kenan Thompson and Kel Mitchell reunite for an episode of Double Dare, the long-running game show featuring trivia and sloppy stunts. It should be good, messy fun, although Id personally rather see Thompson host a one-hour version of SNL favorite Whats Up With That?

Fun for foodies
The latest cooking-competition series, Final Table, is more about bragging rights at the next James Beard Awards after-party than collecting a big prize. In each episode, chefs square off with a different countrys cuisine on the menu. It may not be the most dramatic entry in the genre, but its custom-made for those whose palate extends beyond the International House of Pancakes.
