It appears as if there are a few world TV premiers tonight. Unsurprisingly, some of them have to do with food.
It also appears as if some of these might be cringe-worthy; sort of like rubbernecking at a highway crash.
First, we have the premier of Bravo's Eat, Drink, Love.
As the NY Times describes it:
9 P.M. (Bravo) EAT, DRINK, LOVE Five single women — Kat Odell, the editor of Eater LA; Waylynn Lucas, a pastry chef; Brenda Urban, a publicist; Nina Clemente, a private chef; and Jessica Miller, a marketing specialist — search for love and success on the male-dominated Los Angeles food scene.
I can hardly wait for that one (especially the bikini scenes). Of course, competing with that at 9 is the finale of Food Network Star.
Which leads into the Food Network's brand new competition series, Cutthroat Kitchen! This gives you an idea:
10 P.M. (Food Network) CUTTHROAT KITCHEN Chefs try to sabotage their opponents in this new competition series, in which four contestants per episode are each given $25,000 to bid on obstacles, like the exclusive use of salt or not allowing others to taste their dishes. The last one standing receives the money left over in his or her bank. A winner is chosen on the “Food Network Star” finale at 9.
My real hope is that at some point, Food Network just gives a bunch of cooks knives...and may the best man or woman win. But that's just a fantasy.
Anyway, which of these stellar pieces of art will getting your viewership? And...why?
