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…

The star of the upcoming film “In Our Nature” also happens to be quite a Patriots fan, with a son he has been trying to wean off of the New York Giants for a long time.

Next up, Rainn Wilson, the man to whom we will always be in debt to for the way he has brought Dunder-Mifflin psychotic Dwight Schrute to life for nine seasons of “The Office.” You’ll be happy to know the Seahawks are so deeply woven into his DNA that you’ll hear him drop the name “Jim Zorn” on this podcast. Wilson owns two fantasy football leagues and frequently tweets his fantasy woes to his 3.5 million followers on Twitter. Eric Stonestreet follows.
