In a rare quiet moment, Gordon Ramsay helps final two Christina and Petrozza plot revenge against all the other chefs.

On TV this week

MONDAY

The Art of Failure: Chuck Connelly Not for Sale, 9 p.m., HBO A study of painter Chuck Connelly, an angry drunk who has alienated his patrons. It was career gold for Jackson Pollock.

When Andrew Came Home, 9 p.m., Lifetime Andrew came home late — about five years late, when his dad finally gets around to sending him back to his mom, filthy and illiterate. Based on a true story, which always makes these things worse.

TUESDAY

SEASON FINALE Hell's Kitchen, 9 p.m., Fox Frankly, if you get all the way through a season of this without stabbing Gordon Ramsay, you deserve something.

SEASON FINALE 30 Days, 10 p.m., FX Morgan spends a month on a Navajo reservation to see what it's like. No word on whether he experiences genocide, federal betrayal and a systematic erasure of his culture.

WEDNESDAY

SERIES PREMIERE Click & Clack's as the Wrench Turns, 8 p.m., PBS As if the Car Talk guys weren't noisy enough on Saturday morning NPR, they get cartoon versions of themselves. Like the Mario Brothers when we were kids.

Koppel: People's Republic of Capitalism, 10 p.m., Discovery Ted Koppel ventures to China to see just how badly the American monoculture has infected the next big superpower.

SEASON PREMIERE Scare Tactics, 10 p.m., Sci-Fi Tracy Morgan is the new host, which is about as scary as it gets.

THURSDAY

SERIES PREMIERE Greatest American Dog, 8 p.m., CBS There's a $250,000 prize, but we've got to think if the Greatest American Dog isn't a mutt, this show is fixed.

Swingtown, 10 p.m., CBS Tom's all angry when Trina hooks up with her high-school sweetheart. Wait, you talk to people you went to high school with?

SEASON PREMIERE Burn Notice, 10 p.m., USA All we care about is that Bruce Campbell is back as Sam.

FRIDAY

SERIES PREMIERE Flashpoint, 10 p.m., CBS You know what we were just thinking? There aren't enough shows about cops on TV.

SEASON PREMIERE Stargate Atlantis, 10 p.m., Sci-Fi You know what we were just thinking? There aren't enough shows about intergalactic travel on TV.
