All Top 10 - TV shows to be thankful for

On this eve of Thanksgiving, like most of you, I'm reflecting on life and thinking about the people I'm most for. 

And so, it seems most appropriate to give thanks for friends like Cookie, Carrie, Rayna and Liz Taylor. You know, the ladies I spend most nights with.

Here are the 10 currently airing TV shows I am most thankful for.

10 - Vampire Diaries

This is really a toss up between The Vampire Diaries and Reign. And while I am aware that most TVD fans have moved on to The Originals, I appreciate the twists we're getting this season on TVD

It hasn't COMPLETELY jumped the shark just yet. 

9 - Empire

Boo boo kitty, I must be honest; this season is so not as good as the last. But, I'm still watching. Like my mom said when I asked why she still watches even though she thinks the series has gotten "too gross."

"I still want to know what happens!"

ATXgossip pictures of Justin Bieber in Chicago

Justin Bieber prayed for victims of the Paris terrorist attacks when he made a tour stop in the Chicago area at the Allstate Arena. 

A member of his production team was killed at the Bataclan Theater on November 13.

Earlier in the day, the Biebs tweeted a picture of the Chicago skyline and thanked people for allowing him to just have fun and be normal (kind of) while skating around the city.

An ATXgossip pal was at Wednesday's concert and sent in these pictures and videos of the What Do You Mean singer.

ATXgossip debate: Team Peeta or Team Gale?

And now it's time for the debate of the decade.

Republican or Democrat?
Syrian refugees, yes or no?
To build a wall or to not build a wall?

Nope, none of the above.

The real question is; Team Peeta or Team Gale?

With the final Hunger Games installment hitting theaters on Friday, it's high time we decide this once and for all.

All Top 10 - Why Bindi should win Dancing With the Stars

This is shaping up to be one of the best Dancing With the Stars finales in years. And while there are a few talented performers left in the game, we're drawn to one in particular. Call it animal magnetism.

Bindi Irwin is the queen of the DWTS jungle! 

These are just 10 of the ways this little spitfire roars.

Dixie Chicks will reunite and tour in 2016

At long last, The Dixie Chicks are getting back together.

Tickets for the Chicks first full tour of the United States in a decade go on sale Friday. 

Starting in Europe in April, the tour comes to the US on June 1 with a show at Riverbend Music Center in Cincinnati and completes with LA's Hollywood Bowl on October 10. You can see all dates here.

ATXgossip met two of  the gals in Austin when the duo The Courtyard Hounds performed an intimate set at the KGSR studios in 2010.

Last year, we spotted Natalie Maines at a winery in Malibu.

Maines also played SXSW solo showcase in 2013.

As you can see, we've been keeping a close eye on the gals and can't wait to see them when they play Austin360 Ampitheater next August.

What about y'all? Are you excited to see the country trio back together?
