Watch people from all over the US chuck pumpkins with homemade machines. Some of them may look medieval, but don't underestimate their capabilities when it comes to chunkin' punkins! Hosted by "Mythbusters" co-hosts Kari Byron, Tory Bellechi and Grant Imahara.

A Very Gaga Thanksgiving (ABC, 9:30pm)

Lady Gaga Thanksgiving Special? Seriously... that is AWESOME! There will be an interview by Katie Couric with Ms. Gaga and musical performances. This is going to be epic.
