A pop challenge about calories brings one winning team an amazing prize, and trainers Bob Harper and Jillian Michaels take the players out to a restaurant to help them learn how to make healthy choices when eating out.

In an all-hands-on-deck crisis at the hospital, a determined Veronica (Taylor Schilling) saves the sole survivor of a horrific nightclub fire.

Tired of being viewed by others as a kid, Chloe (Michelle Trachtenberg) seeks the respect of her coworkers – and the affections of a workplace crush – by getting a grown-up wardrobe and a take-charge attitude to match. Meanwhile, Sonia (Jaime Lee Kirchner) butts heads with an energetic new female doctor (K.K.

Ugly Betty (s/ABC) Premieres Friday, October 9 at 8:00 pm ET/PT (7:00pm CT, 9:00pm MT) Ugly Betty returns to regular schedule October 16 at 9:00pm ET/PT (8:00pm CT, 10:00pm MT)
In part one of the season premiere episode “The Butterfly Effect” Betty finds that everything is changing as she begins her new job as associate features editor, especially since her boss is her ex-boyfriend, Matt Hartley, who is still unhappy about their breakup. Betty’s new officemate, Megan (Smith Cho), openly resents her, while Marc is constantly undermining her because he felt he was more deserving of the promotion. Claire Meade is finding that her power struggle at the company has her sitting pretty – for the moment -- opposite Wilhemina, who lost her claim to the Meade throne last season. But Wili has perhaps an even bigger problem than job security — she is harboring a secret at home that is driving Marc to distraction.
In “The Butterfly Effect,” Part 2 Betty gets to run her own Mode photo shoot at the United Nations to promote their anti-malaria initiative, “Nothing but Nets,” but her big opportunity becomes a baptism by fire when Daniel’s neediness takes its toll, and Matt openly demoralizes her. Meanwhile, Amanda does some soul-searching when she bonds with Daniel’s new temp, Helen (Kristen Johnston), a career receptionist as fabulous as Amanda is. Wili makes it her personal mission to protect a loved one.
