The title of this week's pivotal episode of FX's Justified (Tuesday, 10/9c), "Get Drew," may evoke memories of an Elmore Leonard classic (Get Shorty), but Justified is a modern classic in its own right, honoring Leonard's spirit with wit and suspenseful grit and twisty plotting that just won't let up. That's especially true after last week's revelation of the identity of the long-missing and much-sought-after Drew Thompson, who sets off a multi-faceted manhunt.
Hell's Kitchen is back with more meltdowns, more cursing and... puppets?!
When Fox's culinary competition show kicks off its 11th season with a two-hour episode on Tuesday at 8/7c, Chef Gordon Ramsay has fashioned an all-new form of torture for the 20 contestants. For the first time ever, contestants will have to present their signature dishes in front of a live audience in Las Vegas...

Fox is pulling Ben and Kate from its Tuesday night schedule and replacing the freshman sitcom with extra episodes of Raising Hope, the network announced Wednesday.
To be a Hell's Kitchen contestant, one must be hungry for fame, excellence and no small amount of drama. But to be a Hell's Kitchen diner, one must go hungry ... or at least that's the impression the editing on the reality cooking competition show has given.
With all of host-mentor Chef Gordon Ramsay's bellowing, the undercooked proteins and overdone egos apparent on the show, many a filmed dinner service has ended in tears or has been shut down well before all courses have been served. Imagine my relief (and satiation) that this was not necessarily the case when I recently had the privilege to dine at Hell's Kitchen itself.
Check out what other preconceived notions I had and how they played out through dinner service:

The Season 3 premiere of The Voice easily topped Monday, but also posted the series' lowest-rated premiere ever.
The two-hour telecast, the show's first in the fall, was predictably down from its Super Bowl-boosted Season 2 premiere, averaging 12 million viewers and a 4.1 in the adults 18-to-49 demographic — dropping 39 percent and 25 percent, respectively. The episode also took a 15 percent dip from last season's Monday night ...

It was a summer that won't be remembered fondly, at least by the broadcast networks. Despite a flurry of new shows, from CBS' Dogs in the City to ABC's Glass House, there wasn't much to crow about — at least until NBC's Summer Olympics ratings juggernaut came along. Cable fared better, launching new hits like A&E's Longmire and TNT's Perception and opening events like History's Hatfields & McCoys to big numbers. Here are some of this summer's highs and lows.
The Glass House
CBS may have lost the legal battle (for now), but it's won the ratings war.
ABC's Big Brother-like new series The Glass House opened to a soft 4.18 million viewers and a 1.6 in the adults 18-to-49 demographic Monday, down 33 percent ...
Fox's double helping of Gordon Ramsay served up a Monday night win for the network.
The season premieres of Hell's Kitchen and MasterChef averaged a 2.3 in the adults 18-to-49 demographic, edging out NBC's 2.1.
