Monday, Nov. 1
HOUSE (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT) – “Now What?”
In an encore of this season’s premiere episode, House and Cuddy (Lisa Edelstein) call in sick to explore their recent declarations of love and attempt to make a real relationship work. Meanwhile, Princeton Plainsboro is left without accreditation as a Level 1 Trauma Center due to the hospital’s neurosurgeon falling ill, and the team scrambles to diagnose their sick colleague. When they discover there is more to the illness than originally suspected, they turn to House, who remains unavailable, leaving the team on its own.
LIE TO ME (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) – “Sweet Sixteen”
In an encore airing, after Lightman’s former Pentagon colleague is killed in a car bomb, Lightman and Foster (Kelli Williams) are forced to revisit a series of events from their past, including the therapy sessions that brought them together.
[EDITOR’S NOTE: If World Series Game 5 is necessary, the baseball game will air live starting at 7:30 PM ET/4:30 PM PT, replacing HOUSE and LIE TO ME, and local programming will air in primetime on the West Coast.]

After a surprising campaign announcement is made by the incumbent (guest star Pat Finn), House and the team look to the candidate to find clues about the patient’s condition. Meanwhile, Foreman (Omar Epps) learns that Taub (Peter Jacobson) has a past connection to Masters, and in an effort to save his patient’s life, House must make a critical decision that may compromise his relationship with Cuddy.
LIE TO ME (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) – “The Canary’s Song”

When the Center for Disease Control’s Dr. Dave Broda (guest star Dylan Baker) institutes a lockdown on the hospital and suspends House’s team’s ability to diagnose, Masters (guest star Tamblyn) grows suspicious of Broda’s motives and becomes convinced that the patient is suffering from a different disease. The girl’s father soon experiences similar symptoms, and House is forced to make a precarious decision that puts his own life in jeopardy.

The terminally ill owner of a successful chain of restaurants (guest star John Amos) hires Lightman to fulfill his dying wish: to track down his daughter’s killer.

HELL’S KITCHEN (8:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) – “9 Chefs Compete”
With tension building between the contestants as the competition heats up, Chef Ramsay tests the chefs’ imagination, creativity and ability to work together. In the first challenge, the teams are asked to create one cohesive dish using five randomly selected ingredients, with the team that prepares the most harmonious dish jetting off to Las Vegas and the losers forced to wash, peel and cut more than 1,000 potatoes. Later, Ramsay challenges the teams to shop on a budget and transform four classic ingredients into elegant dishes worthy of fine dining. Four special judges – chef Mark Peel, food critic Sophie Gayot, food blogger Libby Rego and restaurant manager Justin Wyborn – critique the teams’ creations, and HELL’S KITCHEN welcomes some very special guests to the show’s most elegant dinner service to date in an encore of the series’ milestone 100th episode.
[EDITOR’S NOTE: If World Series Game 6 is necessary, the baseball game will air live starting at 7:30 PM ET/4:30 PM PT, replacing HELL’S KITCHEN, and local programming will air in primetime on the West Coast.]

After a nail-biting 100th dinner service, Chef Ramsay surprises the contestants by announcing that the battle of the sexes is returning to the competition. Chef Ramsay pits the women’s team against the men’s team in a blind taste-test challenge with the winning team earning a shopping spree and a fine dining experience at Chef Michael Mina’s famed restaurant, XIV, and the losing team taking on the less glamorous task of sorting through trash. Later, concerned with the lack of teamwork at this point in the competition, Chef Ramsay challenges the teams to compete in a relay designed to test their cooking precision and communication skills. That night, dinner service disappoints not only Chef Ramsay but also two special guests: restaurateur Josiah Citrin and NFL quarterback Matt Cassel.
Wednesday, Nov. 17
HUMAN TARGET (8:00-9:00 PM ETPT) – “Ilsa Pucci” – Season Premiere

For the amuse-bouche challenge, Chef Ramsay invites Michelin-starred chefs from some of Los Angeles’ most critically acclaimed restaurants to judge the contestants, with the winner getting a taste of the sweet life at LA Market at the JW Marriott Hotel. Later, dinner service disappoints as the teams show a lack of cooperation, leaving hungry diners dissatisfied with their meals.

HELL’S KITCHEN (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) – “5 Chefs Compete”
With only five chefs remaining, the contestants must prove that they have the passion and talent to move forward in the competition. In a challenge designed to test who has what it takes to cater to LA Market’s high-profile clientele, Chef Ramsay asks the contestants to prepare and serve their signature dishes in food trucks to sell to the downtown Los Angeles lunch crowd. The chef with the most popular dish earns a Beverly Hills makeover by celebrity hairstylist José Eber and fashion guru Steven Cojocaru, while the rest of the contestants are forced to scrub down their food trucks and prepare HELL’S KITCHEN for dinner service. Later, a disappointing dinner service and underwhelming individual performances push Chef Ramsay to the edge.

Last is a nod to the Broadway musical “Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street,” in which Homer (Castellaneta) accidentally falls through a trap door at Moe’s (Hank Azaria) tavern and is impaled on pipes attached to Moe’s Microbrewery. Marge (Julie Kavner) and the barflies drown their sorrows on the delicious microbrew now mixed with Homer’s blood.
