This can't be good ...

From Randee Dawn at Today's The Clicker:

Well, the costumes sure won't be turkeys!
That's the first thing many will undoubtedly think once they learn that ABC will air "A Very Gaga Thanksgiving" on Nov. 24. [Not my first thought.] The 90-minute primetime special was "conceived and directed by Mother Monster herself," according to MTV, and Lady Gaga is expected to perform eight songs, including her new single, "Marry the Night" and her duet with Tony Bennett, "The Lady is a Tramp." [Too ... many ... jokes .... Must ... mock ... Gaga ....]
She'll also sit down for an interview with Katie Couric taped at the singer's alma mater, Sacred Heart Catholic School in New York.
"We all know Lady Gaga is a phenomenon," Couric said in a statement. "This is a chance to see more of who she is beneath the wild costumes and staged musical numbers ... Lady Gaga as a high school student still bruised by being excluded from the party. Lady Gaga as a devoted daughter and caring sister. Lady Gaga as a 25-year-old woman embracing fame and fortune that seemed to come overnight. She will impress you, delight you and surprise you." [I will be at least delighted and surprised if dinner isn't part of her costume.]
And because you couldn't have a Thanksgiving special without food, chef Art Smith will be on hand to share recipes — including his personal holiday favorite, deep-fried turkey and waffles.
Gaga and waffles ... and you and your family. What a way to start a new holiday tradition!

Yikes. That's all I can say ... yikes.
