Top 5 to Watch Oct. 11-17: 'Ugly Betty,' 'Law & Order' & More
Hell's Kitchen - Tuesday, Oct. 13 (Fox)
Chef Gordon Ramsay will announce the winner of "Hell's Kitchen" season six. The competition is down to Ariel, Kevin and Dave, but one of those chefs will be cut during the first hour of the two-hour finale. On the second episode the chefs will be asked to create their own restaurant, and hopefully the right person will emerge victorious at the end.
I think all of the chefs are extremely talented, but they have also all had their poor moments. Ariel and Kevin were stars from the beginning. Dave, on the other hand, has come out of nowhere to be the one-armed wonder chef! I really want him to win because I feel like if he is this great of a chef with only one arm, he must be an unbelievable chef with two arms. Plus, his injury is only temporary, so it would be awful to penalize him for that.
Grey's Anatomy - Thursday, Oct. 15 (ABC)
It's time for the most anticipated merger in hospital history. On Thursday, Mercy West doctors and nurses will infiltrate Seattle Grace Hospital, putting everyone on even more edge, as if that is even possible this season. Will they get along? Will they hate each other? Will there be all-out brawls in the emergency room? No one knows. Although, I'm hoping that third question's answer will be no.
Also, the commercial implied that it will be someone's last day, but who?

Private Practice - Thursday, Oct. 15 (ABC)
This week "Private Practice" lovers will finally find out who is the father of Violet's baby boy, Luke. The debate about whether Pete or Sheldon is Luke's father has been going on since Violet she was pregnant during the middle of last season. Viewers have been on edge waiting to hear the news, but no longer will we have to wait.
So, who do you want to be the father of Luke? My vote is going to Pete. Sheldon isn't my favorite character, and I think he would have a little less air time if he turned out not to be the father. Plus, I love Pete and the relationship he and Violet are starting to build. I also think Pete will be much more devastated if Sheldon is the father than Sheldon will be if Pete is the father.
Law & Order - Friday, Oct. 16 (NBC)
"Law & Order" is usually the same old, same old week after week, but this week the NBC drama has something special in store for viewers, something I'm sure a lot of viewers have been wondering if anyone would try.
This week "Law & Order" will spoof The Gosselin family of "Jon and Kate Plus 8" on an episode titled Reality Bites. The episode centers around a man named Larry whose wife has just been murdered. The day after his wife's death, Larry signs a huge contract for a reality show that will follow him caring for his 10 adoptive children, "Larry Plus 10." To add insult to injury, and honestly just make the episode even better, Larry has been dating the babysitter (similar to a nanny, I suppose) and another character on Reality Bites resembles Nadya Suleman, the octo-mom. Could like really get any better?
Ugly Betty - Friday, Oct. 16 (ABC)
Our favorite fashionista is returning this week, although I have a feeling she is going to wish she was still on hiatus. Last season, her boyfriend left her after an unfortunate misunderstanding, and then became her new boss at her new job.
On the season premiere, her life at work is terrible for the most part. Matt is still ignoring her, while another coworker openly resents her for taking the job he believes should have gone to him. There has to be a bright side, though. On the first episode of the season Betty will be asked to direct a photo shoot for the magazine. That sounds like either a huge career boost or a recipe for disaster!
