Not sure, but I believe it's been on at least this early before. With the 22nd being the absolute earliest U.S. Thanksgiving can fall on in any given year*, we will get almost an extra full week of Christmas programming this season.
The last few years Rudolph has been on the day after Thanksgiving, so it may be scheduled for Nov 23 this year!
* for our non-American friends, U.S. Thanksgiving is the fourth Thursday in November, so whenever November 1st lands on a Thursday, which it does this year, it will be a year in which Thanksgiving is at its earliest.
