TEN plans to finish 2010 with a bang, by stacking its last week of ratings with a slew of big events.

The week of November 22 will begin with a Talkin' 'Bout Your Generation Christmas Special at 6:30pm, featuring Denise Scott, Dylan Lewis and Ruby Rose. Never mind that it's still November, we're just happy to see Shaun Micallef back on the box. Maybe TEN could replay this one on Christmas night please?

Then at 7:30pm the Australian Idol finale begins once more on the steps of the Sydney Opera House. This year's guests include Michael Buble, Mika and American Idol's 2007 winner, Jordin Sparks.

Also in the line-up are last year's winner, Wes Carr, and Guy Sebastian. The finale will stretch for two hours, so Rove will have his finale the week before, November 15.

On Monday November 23, there's the 2009 Hamish and Andy Re-Gifted special. This year it's Moosey & Pop, Hamish's grandparents, who will host the night. Will Moosey cook her famous shortbread? Expect mayhem.

It will be followed by a super-sized Good News Week finale -- two hours worth of Paul McDermott, Mikey Robins, Claire Hooper and assorted guests. As always, they will look back on the year that was and give out their very own annual awards.

The Celebrity MasterChef Australia finale will be split over two nights: Tuesday and Wednesday November 24 and 25.

Still in the race are Michelle Bridges, Rachael Finch, Kirk Pengilly, Eamon Sullivan, Alex Lloyd and Simon Katich. Between now and the finale we will lose one in each episode. So by Tuesday November 24 there will be four remaining contestants, who have to tackle one of the most intricate, difficult and time-consuming challenges ever attempted in MasterChef Australia: the Chocolate Swirl Croquembouche. Mmmmm…

A night later the final three will face off in three separate challenges to decide the winner.

TEN also has finales in this week for NCIS, Lie to Me, Glee, a two-hour episode of Rush and the premiere of new US drama White Collar.
