So I hear the new season of “Amazing Race” has begun. I know virtually nothing about this show, but my sister-in-law watches religiously.
This past season of “American Idol” was the first time I watched the show. As a former music teacher, I was astonished by the incredible self-confidence of people who clearly could not carry a tune in the proverbial bucket.
I never got into MTV’s “Real World”, because I am a child of the 80’s who remembers when MTV stood for MUSIC television.
I am, however, addicted to the Food Network reality TV.
I loved the last two seasons of “The Next Food Network Star”, although I’m not sold on Amy Finley’s new show. I do love her cooking style, though, so I’m excited to see where this experience takes her.
I love all of the Food Network Challenges, and even Sweet Son #1 sits and watches those with Mom. Something about the competitive aspect draws him in.
“Dinner Impossible” is another can’t miss (although I usually TiVo it). Chef Robert Irvine has an impressive culinary resume, a great wit and is a quick and creative thinker. He also has a fabulous accent, much like my blogging buddy, Chloe!
My current fave, though is “The Next Iron Chef“, with the finale airing on Sunday, November 11th. I love the parent show “Iron Chef America“, and the two finalists are both excellent. I’m cheering for Chef Symon, though. He’s fun and edgy, and I think he’d make a great addition to the Flay, Morimoto, Batali and Cora quad.
So, what do you like to watch?
