Ahead of the curve: Weekly pop culture calendar

This week marks the beginning of the end for “Harry Potter” fans, as part one of the saga’s finale, “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows,” will be released this Friday.

You can get your fill of “Potter” stars on late night TV Monday, with Emma Watson appearing on the “Late Show with David Letterman” and Daniel Radcliffe on “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon.”

Here are ten other pop culture releases and don't-miss TV moments to watch out for:

  • Tonight, the former Gov. of Alaska Sarah Palin can be seen on TLC in her new reality show, “Sarah Palin’s Alaska,” at 9 p.m.
  • “Nothing Like This” by Rascal Flatts will be released on Tuesday, and the group will be interviewed on Monday’s “Letterman.”
  • Tune in to "Glee" on Tuesday to see Gwyneth Paltrow guest star and perform a cleaned-up version of Cee Lo Green's "F– You!" Oh, and Gleeks (plus everyone else who just hearts holiday music): The “Glee” Christmas album drops Tuesday, too.
  • Later that night, both Rihanna and Jay-Z will be on “Late Show with David Letterman.” Rihanna’s album “Loud” releases that day, and Jay-Z’s book, “Decoded,” arrives in stores Tuesday as well.
  • Nelly’s new album, “5.0,” will be available on Tuesday, and you can catch him on “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno” Tuesday and “Jimmy Kimmel Live” Wednesday.
  • Wednesday on “Ellen,” you can see artist Pink, whose new album “Greatest Hits… So Far!!!” comes out this week. We're curious what she'll say about those pregnancy rumors...
  • Wednesday’s “Conan” features newlywed Russell Brand and Kid Rock, whose latest album “Born Free” will be released on Tuesday.
  • Last season's “American Idol” winner, Lee DeWyze, drops his debut album “Live It Up” on Tuesday, and he'll swing by former "Idol" judge Ellen DeGeneres' talk show Thursday.
  • It's that time of year again! "A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving" comes on Thursday at 8 p.m. on ABC.
  • Haven't heard enough of Bush talking about his memoir? On the "Tonight Show" Thursday, Leno is interviewing former president George W. Bush on his recent book, “Decision Points,” which was released November 9.

    I'm still waiting to hear that Sarah Palin has fallen out of a Helicopter when she's shooting innocent animals. Maybe she should suffer a gunshot wound to see how the animal feels.
