Also among the highlights of the month are special episodes including; “A Halloween Fit for A Queen,” “#TBT 1988,” and “The Ultimate Day of Thanks,” as well as emotional reunions for military families, “Moms Who Rock” and a week that celebrates “Fearless Living.”
“November on The Queen Latifah Show will be full of great entertainment and awe-inspiring surprises,” says Executive Producer Corin Nelson. “We are filling every show with all the fun and memorable moments our viewers have come to expect mixed with the heart and homecoming of the holidays.”

On the ultimate “Throwback Thursday,” November 7, the show rewinds to 1988, the year that Dana Owens – soon to be Queen Latifah - graduated from high school. “#TBT 1988” will be a nostalgic tribute to everything Latifah and her viewers loved most about the ’80s.
