WEEK AHEAD: Madonna's Confessions Hits Stores
Plus: Saturday Night Live relives the '80s, the CMAs come to New York, and more
Madonna’s highly anticipated disco-inspired album, Confessions on a Dance Floor, hits stores – and, no doubt, DJ turntables everywhere – on Tuesday. PEOPLE looks at Her Madgesty’s latest platter and more events to watch for in the coming week:
SUNDAY, NOV. 13: A new three-hour documentary, Saturday Night Live in the ’80s: Lost and Found, looks back at the series’ troubled decade, which began with the late Charles Rocket’s F-bomb but finished with a stellar cast that included Dana Carvey, Jon Lovitz and the late Phil Hartman. The special airs on NBC at 9 p.m. ET.
TUESDAY, NOV. 15: Madonna returns to form with Confessions on a Dance Floor, her first all-dance music album since her 1983 debut, Madonna. PEOPLE’s Chuck Arnold writes of the disc, “Madonna gets back to giving the people what they want on her body-rocking latest.” Confessions includes the hit single “Hung Up.”
Expect to see country-music royalty – including Kenny Chesney, Faith Hill, and Alan Jackson – at the 2005 Country Music Association Awards. The year, the CMAs, which have previously taken place in Nashville, will be broadcast live from New York City’s Madison Square Garden. The ceremony airs on CBS at 8 p.m. ET.
Want to relive the time Oprah Winfrey wheeled out a wagon filled with fat to dramatize how much weight she’d lost? That 1988 segment and other moments make up The Oprah Winfrey Show: 20th Anniversary DVD Collection, a six-disc retrospective of the hugely influential talk show, as well as behind-the-scenes footage and a running commentary by Winfrey. Profits from the set will benefit the Oprah’s Angel Network
