''Arrested Development'' and ''Kitchen Confidential'' are back on Fox's schedule tonight, for what appears to be their last stand. Neither show is on the network's January 2006 lineup, and it would take a miracle -- like everything else on Fox failing -- to guarantee them an extended life.
That's especially unfortunate for ''Kitchen Confidential,'' which hasn't had much of a chance to find an audience and which is raw, funny, unbridled -- it's really good, OK? Tonight's episode, with guest star Michael Vartan of ''Alias,'' is pretty wild but I have seen two other episodes beyond that, and they're even better.
You're running out of opportunities to see the show, so take the ones you have.
