  1. Chopped: All-Stars: Checking In With Our Old Celebrity Cook-off P...

    Max Silvestri

    It used to be that if I wanted to spend two or three hours obliterating my free time, I watched Law & Order. Now I watch Food Network's Chopped. I'm not sure what changed. I think it's more difficult for me to stop myself from watching another Choppe...

  2. The Worst Cooks in America Finale: The Bittersweet Pride of Being...

    Max Silvestri

    The fourth season of Worst Cooks in America was only seven episodes long, but it felt much longer. Rachael vs. Guy: Celebrity Cook-off, at six episodes, is a bite-size mushroom quiche at a cocktail party compared to this show, which feels like you're...

  3. Worst Cooks in America, Episode 6: Butter and Hash

    Max Silvestri

    With only four contestants left, Worst Cooks in America is a different show. Last week the judges eliminated Carla and Michael, cooks with two of the clearest gimmicks: Wanna-Lay-Bobby-Flay and Bow-Tie-Accounting-Dork. With their dismissal, all that'...

    Max Silvestri

    Sunday was the fifth episode of the season, and I no longer feel like I'm watching bad cooks become better at cooking. I am now watching bad cooks become better at being on television. However much Anne and Bobby are coaching the contestants on-scree...

  5. Worst Cooks in America, Episode 4: Dumb Racism, Worse Puns, and C...

    Max Silvestri

    This show spends very little time in the Real Worst World house, and that's likely for the best. I read an interview with Carrie Lee and she said much of the downtime was spent putting makeup and drag on Aadip and Alex. I bet Alex put on women's clot...

  6. Worst Cooks in America, Episode 3: Ice Cream and Grease Fires

    Max Silvestri

    This show is brutal. Last week we saw Dr. Bob and Big Mike sent home, and if those two barrels of charisma can't cut it, who can? The two of them were clearly talented: Mike could probably walk onto any indoor football team in Canada, and Bob's backg...

  7. Worst Cooks in America, Episode 2: Vegetarians Don't Eat Chicken

    Max Silvestri

    After my recap of the premiere went up last week, people left comments. That's how these things work. But it was not just "civilian" people leaving comments; there were also comments from this season's contestants. If I was on a cable reality show, I...

  8. Worst Cooks in America, Episode 1: Ketchup and Skittles

    Max Silvestri

    A Sunday night without a soul-extinguishing cooking show didn't quite feel right after the trauma of Rachael vs. Guy: Celebrity Cook-Off, so Mark Lisanti here was kind enough to let me keep this sad-party rolling with Worst Cooks in America. He is a ...

  9. Rachael vs. Guy Celebrity Cook-Off Season 2, Episode 6: 'Star-Stu...

    Max Silvestri

    The sixth episode of Rachael Vs Guy: Celebrity Cook-Off was also its last. Perhaps Food Network is modeling this season after the British model of short "series," and that makes sense considering the show's intense commitment to quality. But it's a b...

    Max Silvestri

    I've not had time to check with the Nielsen people, but I can only imagine that the penultimate episode of Rachael vs. Guy: Celebrity Cook-Off on Sunday night won its time slot handily, across all demographics. For some reason, and I can't think of w...

    Max Silvestri

    I did not watch last night's new episode of Rachael vs. Guy: Celebrity Cook-Off live, but while my DVR was recording it, someone tweeted at me saying that I'd have "a field day with this episode." Having now caught up on Episode 4, I imagine this per...

    Happy Martin Luther King Jr. Day, friends and family. Today President Obama renewed his oath of office and began another four years in the White House, and here I am writing so many words about the second "term" (season) of Rachael vs. Guy: Celebrity...

    Max Silvestri

    Last night's Rachael vs. Guy: Celebrity Cook-Off faced a lot of stiff competition for our viewing attention. What luck did this senior project of a TV show have against the likes of the Golden Globes, new episodes of Downton Abbey and The Good Wife, ...

    Did anybody have a good 2012? I did not. I have polled a lot of people, or at least some people, and everyone I talked to agrees that 2012 belongs in the garbage bucket. My New Year's resolution is to buy a garbage bucket. Even Obama, who in 2012 was...

  15. Rachael vs. Guy: The Two-Hour Sudden Finale Spectacular!

    Max Silvestri

    With little fanfare or notice, the Food Network decided to wrap up Rachael Vs. Guy: Celebrity Cook-Off in five weeks instead of six. This past Sunday they aired the final two episodes back-to-back. Perhaps they worried the finale would get much highe...

  16. Rachael vs. Guy, Week 4: Sloppies' Seconds

    Max Silvestri

    It's the episode we've not been waiting for; the remaining cast of Rachael vs. Guy: Celebrity Cook-Off tackle the sinister and mysterious food truck craze, if you define a "craze" as just a "thing that has comfortably and unexcitedly just gone on exi...
