    OH MY GOD

    NBC is going to have a "reality" show based in a NY restaurant with Rocco DiSpirito as "head chef." Besides the kitchen, the show will focus in on the "stories" going on at each table. Bleeech!
    Disclaimer: I hate, really hate "reality" shows.

    Here's the link to Yahoo News for more info:

    I'm proud to say DH and I have not watched a single second of reality TV. With somewhat less pride, I need to mention that we'd probably watch at least one episode of a culinary-based reality show.

    :rolleyes: . o O (I'll go stand in the corner now.)

    Well, of COURSE I'll have to watch the first episode too! :D It's just that I don't trust Mark Burnett AT ALL. We used to have a yearly addiction to his EcoChallenge with all those folks doing things (climbing mountains in the dark with only a miner's lamp, crossing roiling rivers by inching along a rope suspended high above, rappelling down rock faces with no sleep: you get the idea) I wish I could do and as a team as well. But when he started with all that "Survivor" nonsense, he lost the little credibility he had (at least with us, important people that we are :rolleyes: ).
