The Ticker: (Thanksgiving Edition): BBC, CNN, CBS…

> Tonight BBC World News America looks at how diverse cultural communities of modern America celebrate this centuries old tradition. Three Americans — a recently naturalized U.S. citizen from India, a first generation Mexican-American, and a woman whose American roots date back to the 15th century, explain what Thanksgiving means to them. BBC World News America airs at 7pmET on BBC America.

> CNN’s Anderson Cooper hosts CNN Heroes: An All-Star Tribute tonight at 9pmET on CNN. The show was taped before an audience of more than 2,000 at the Kodak Theatre last Saturday. The star-studded event features performances by Christina Aguilera, Alicia Keys and John Legend, with awards presented by Jessica Biel, Cameron Diaz, Salma Hayek, Terrence Howard, Hugh Jackman, and Forest Whitaker.

> Before you sit down to Thanksgiving dinner think about this quote from Olympic gold medalist Michael Phelps about his eating habits: “I have to always just constantly shovel food in because I can lose anywhere from five to 10 pounds in a week.” Nice. Phelps talks with the aforementioned Cooper this Sunday on 60 Minutes. By the way, that rumored 12,000-calorie a day diet is more like 8-10,000 calories a day. We feel better now.
