Charlie Brown rides again on ABC, but The Nine is being holstered.

ABC has benched The Nine indefinitely after last Wednesday's episode lagged a distant third opposite CBS' CSI: NY and NBC's Medium. The taut serial drama, spun from a prolonged bank robbery/hostage-taking ordeal, will be supplanted on Wed., Nov. 29 by a John Stossel 20/20 special titled "Cheap In America." It's the last night of the November "sweeps."

Roly poly Charlie Brown, a holiday perennial since 1965, returns uncommonly early this year. ABC has scheduled A Charlie Brown Christmas for Tuesday, Nov. 28 at 7 p.m. central, 8 eastern

A woman hasn't been feted since 2000, when Barbra Streisand won.

Fox has figured out what to air in place of its two canceled O.J. Simpson specials. On Monday, Nov. 27, look for a repeat of the ubiquitous House after the fall finale of Prison Break. Wednesday will bring a rerun of Bones.
