CHICAGO – The awesomeness of history loses any of its stuffiness with the incredibly fun, indeed educational show “Drunk History” from Comedy Central, its two seasons now released on DVD. Hosted by its creator Derek Waters, the show is a celebration of various historic figures and their under-appreciated true tales, as expressed by funny people narrating in the universal language of inebriation; their recounts are then reenacted by famous actors working with their given dialogue, dressed with the comic cheapness of a bloated biopic.
CHICAGO – “Masterchef,” starring Gordon Ramsay, Joe Bastianich, and Graham Elliot, returns tonight, May 22, 2013 at 7pm with a two-hour premiere that hints at a kinder, gentler season, in keeping with the general trend of these shows.
CHICAGO – Gordon Ramsay is back! Wait, Gordon Ramsay never really went away! Seriously, FOX must have an entire wing devoted to building programs around the divisive loudmouth who has made an absolute fortune off the failed culinary tactics of wannabe chefs on “Hell’s Kitchen” & “Masterchef” and failed restaurateurs on “Kitchen Nightmares.” Ramsay gets a fourth FOX series starting tonight in “Hotel Hell,” an unscripted series in which the clever businessman heads to bed & breakfasts, inns, and other lodgings and shows them what they’re doing wrong whether they like it or not.
CHICAGO – If you’ve ever said to yourself, “You know, one sub-par cooking competition show isn’t enough, I need two back-to-back!,” then FOX is set to make your Summer, pairing Gordon Ramsay’s two culinary programs, “Hell’s Kitchen” and “Masterchef,” back-to-back on Monday nights.
CHICAGO – Almost laughably trying to blend FOX hits “American Idol” and “Hell’s Kitchen,” the new cooking competition show “Masterchef,” which debuts on Tuesday, July 27th, 2010, is nowhere near as interesting as either and falls ridiculously flat when compared to the excellent “Top Chef.”
