The Thanksgiving night special struggled to get viewers attention against football and more.
See why we’re having black coffee with our veggie omelet:
• ABC’s Thanksgiving evening entertainment didn’t go over so well with viewers. The network played Spike Lee’s Bad 25 documentary in its entirety and unfortunately, it didn’t receive high ratings. According to the Grio, it struggled to compete with football games on NBC and the X-Factor on Fox. Nearly 4.6M tuned in to see the show—that’s 25 percent less than last year’s A Very Gaga Thanksgiving special. CBS’ A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving came out on top with the highest ratings of the night.

• Mary J. Blige joined legendary rock group the Rolling Stones at their concert in London last night. The queen of hip-hop soul was one of several guests for the epic moment. The Stones will continue their 50 and Counting tour with stops in New York and New Jersey next. [Rolling Stone]
• Rapper 50 Cent helped spread holiday cheer recently at New York’s Cipirani Restaurant. He served Hurricane Sandy victims a luxurious Thanksgiving meal. “Having Sandy hit New York— you wanna get out and make sure everybody understands that you care about it,” said 50. “Hunger’s not a third world issue. It’s a world issue.” [CNN]
• Chris Brown has deleted his Twitter account yet again. This time after a heated twitter-exchange with comedian Jenny Johnson. The two exchanged written blows several times before Brown couldn’t take anymore. “To teambreezy… Know that I’m not upset. Just felt like entertaining the ignorance. These b*tches crazy.. further proved my point of how immature society is. #CarpeDiem Catch me in traffic,” Brown tweeted before deleting the account. [Hollywood Reporter]
• In other Chris Brown news, he was the subject of a Rihanna Instagram. The Bajan pop-princess shared a photo of a topless Chris Brown lying in her bed. Both Brown and Rihanna spent Thanksgiving together in Germany. [Extra TV]
