The second documentary for USA from host Tom Brokaw, the film will showcase America’s progress in the approximately 50 years since the launch of the civil rights movement. By looking beyond the salacious headlines it provides a truer and more complete picture of where the country stands on a range of issues, from discrimination on the basis of race, gender, religion, disabilities and sexual orientation to bullying in schools. The film also will highlight the citizens who are working tirelessly for progress and solutions to create a more tolerant United States. The documentary is the centerpiece of Characters Unite Month, which begins on November 22 and continues through December.

PSYCH – “The Polarizing Express” – 10pm ET/PT
Shawn’s (James Roday) antics cause evidence to be thrown out in the high profile prosecution of a known crime lord named Czarsky, resulting in the dismissal of the entire case and the firings of not only the agency but also of Henry as their liaison. After Henry wonders to Shawn what life would have been like in Santa Barbara if he had never returned, Shawn travels through a series of dreams which answer that question and aid him in discovering a new way to bust Czarsky for good.
Guest starring Tony Cox & Keshia Knight Pulliam
