I think it's on Bravo... I saw it for the first time last night (this morning) when they showed a couple of episodes back to back. I thought it was all right (good insomniac viewing I guess).

I understand that there is pressure and everything and they really want to win... but geez... some of them really do not handle pressure or obstacles very well at ALL.

There are some very nice presentations, but I'm finding it kinda hard to actually LIKE any of the participants. I don't think I'll go out of my way to watch, but might check it out if I catch it during one of my 'surfing' moments.

Harold is decent, but it doesn't seem that he has as much depth in knowledge as the top three (Stephen, Le Ann, Tiffani).

David lacks creativity and poise. But it's the lack of creativity that's hurting him more I think. He wouldn't have the vision to be able to create a world class menu with flavors that would blow you away. He had the easiest dish of the night (John Dory) and he couldn't pull that off.

Haven't watched...but tonight on NBC, after "Deal Or No Deal", the "Celebrity Cooking Showdown" is on.
The host was on the radio this morning, and he called it "Meal Or No Meal".

Welcome to DC, intense.

I don't watch very much TV; and sadly, Food TV has gone down the tubes. Too much "entertainment" and not enough reality cooking. I'm switching over to PBS.

FoodTV has lost it's credibility for me.

Well, Harold, Dave and Tiffani are on their way to Vegas for the showdown. But first, it will be a reunion of all the members in New York. I'm anxious to see what is said when the chef jackets are off. Looks to be good reality TV. Tune in Wed night.
My opinion: Harold will will the whole thing.
