Here it is: The highly anticipated, buzz-worthy first (and perhaps only)-ever “Rich Eisen Thanksgiving Special” that kicked Lindsay Lohan off the top of Page Six for a day.

The television version of this show airs 10 p.m. ET and 10 p.m. PT Friday on NFL Network, with a breakfast re-airing Saturday at 10 a.m. ET before the college football day gets started. As for the audio, uncut version…

He and Rich chat about that experience, what it was like sounding the Vikings Gjallarhorn before 60,000 fans at kickoff, his movie career and much, much more.
