Martha Stewart has all new episodes this week (10am Monday-Friday, NBC). Monday her guests are Mario Batali, Michael Schulson and Scott Conant; on Wednesday it’s Rick Bayless, Sue Torres and Tom Douglas.

Fox has Episode 7 of Hell's Kitchen on Monday at 9pm. Melissa’s gone, and six contestants remain. Read the latest episode roundup in the LA Times here.

Gordon Ramsay has also adapted his BBC show Kitchen Nightmares for Fox (to air this fall). The NY Observer has a report from one of the Ramsified restaurants in New York, Dillons. Following his “improvements,” business is worse than ever. And the chef—since fired—has filed a lawsuit against Ramsay and the show’s producers.

Interested in the original Ramsay’s Kitchen Nightmares? Catch it on Thursdays at 8pm on BBC America, with repeats later Thursday night and on Saturday; see the schedule here.

Top Chef airs the fifth episode of the season this Wednesday (10pm on Bravo). And Serious Eats calls for more drama in their breakdown of last week’s episode.

And they’re down to the grand finale this Sunday on The Next Food Network Star. See who wins themselves a show on Sunday at 9pm. Read Tony Bourdain’s revised take on the show—now he likes it! has having a baby made him mushy? (doubt it)—on Michael Ruhlman’s blog.

And PBS again has five consecutive food shows running next Sunday, from 4-6:30pm. First up is Chef’s Story, featuring Patrick O’Connell (read about the series here) then Food Trip with Todd English at 4:30pm. America’s Test Kitchen follows with a Grand Slam Breakfast episode, followed by Lidia Bastianich making spaghetti with white clams on Lidia’s Italy, then by Mike Colameco’s Food Show.
