On MasterChef Joe Bastianich is very tough on the contestants, but on MasterChef Junior he is much more of tough but fair teacher. When he is done with season 3 of MasterChef Junior, that starts in January, he will be done with the franchise.
The MasterChef explained his decision in this statement, “After several gratifying years as a judge on MasterChef and MasterChef Junior, I have decided to step down from my role on the show. It has been a pleasure working alongside Gordon and Graham on five seasons of MasterChef and three seasons of MasterChef Junior, and I look forward to continuing my current collaborations with Shine America. As co-owner and partner of the Batali & Bastianich Hospitality Group, as well as Eataly throughout the Americas, I will be focusing my time and energies on their continued global expansion.”
I am actually going to miss him. He might have been brunt with the contestants, but it was they needed. It is also what the cooking competition needed to counter Gordon Ramsay and Graham Elliott’s nicer approach.
No word who will replace him, but Gordon Ramsay is open to your suggestions on Twitter!
For some reason Peter Berg likes to scream at people in his Instagram photos. Well today, Minka Kelly gave him a taste of his own medicine. By the looks of his face, it was a tough pill to swallow and he didn’t like it. Who knew someone so little, had such a big voice?
Last year, people were shocked when People named Adam Levine as their Sexiest Man Alive. This year, they got it right when they gave Chris Hemsworth the title.
His good looks are reason enough to give him the award, but Thor’s humbleness totally seals the deal.
What do you think of him getting the honor?
We’ve heard of the Cronut, now we have the Ranuts. Culinary Bro-Down created the latest donut craze and this one is made with Ramen Noodles.
So how do they taste? The creator described them as, “They’re starchy, they’re crispy, they’re covered in frosting and stuffed with custard — that’s about all I can tell you. I enjoyed them in my mouth, I enjoyed them a lot.” Then he tells his reader to make them for themselves and includes the recipe. So if you are daring enough to try one, check out his site to learn how to make them.
Part me wants to try one, and then the other part is like are you crazy?
Chris Meloni shared this photo of himself with a clown face and said, “I do kids parties….anyone?” On that note, he looks like someone Stabler would’ve been investigating on Law & Order: SVU.
Forget Twisty from American Horror Story: Freak Show, the Oz star is the one who will be giving me nightmares 11 days before Halloween.
Seriously, how is that the same guy that we loved in the cancelled-too-soon Surviving Jack?
He’s just so creepy as a clown, but then again who isn’t?
How many times have you been to a comedy club and laughed your a$$ off? Well imagine if you had to pay for each time that you giggled. That is exactly what is happening in Barcelona. According to BBC, Teatreneu club put tablets on the back of each seat that uses facial-recognition technology to track how many times you laughed during the comedians’ standup. So how much will it cost you? It costs you $.38 per chuckle with a maximum bill of $30.41.
I don’t know why I am so worried about this concept because I don’t remember the last time I laughed so much at the comedy club that I would have to pay the max. But something about it terrifies me. But then again I am so cheap, I think I would bite my lip just so I didn’t have to pay anything for the show.
What do you think of the idea of paying per laugh? What’s next? Paying for each time you dance at a concert or sing along with the band? Paying per clap and laugh at a show or movie? Paying each time you cheer at a sporting event? Wait, considering how much all of that is costing us these days, this might be a good idea…
In the year 1980something, Prince Charles is going to marry Lady Diana and the whole world is captivated by their upcoming nuptials. One of the people most excited about the Royal Wedding is Beverly Goldberg (Wendi McLendon-Covey). Tonight at 8:30p on ABC we find out that The Goldbergs wedding wasn’t all that, and Bev decides that she wants to renew her vows because of Charles and Di. Only thing is Murray (Jeff Garlin) really isn’t on board with the whole idea because afterall look who is he marrying and think what she has planned for the big day. Worst part is her dad offers to pay for whatever she desires, and what she wants is the perfect ceremony. The one thing that she can’t buy are the vows and she forces her husband to write his own. As we know he is not the best writer, but he does find his inspiration to say the perfect words to his bride-to-be-again. Only thing is when she finds out where they came from, boy is he in trouble. So is the re-wedding off? You just have to tune in.
The episode is not only about the parents, it also about the kids. Barry (Troy Gentile) and Adam (Sean Giambrone) start a garage band and Twisted Sister is their musical influence. When Barry hears his sister, Erica (Hayley Orrantia), singing with her friend and his crush, Lacey (AJ Michalka), he asks them to join the band. His thinking is if Lacey is in the band, she will fall in love with him. Will it work? Just like Twisted Sister and the Bangles (the band the girls like), they don’t mix well. But then again opposites do attract.
Tonight’s episode of The Goldbergs is sweeter than all the frosting on wedding cake, so you are going to want to check it out because who doesn’t love frosting? It’s like totally yummy and so is this episode.
A to Z debuts on NBC tonight at 9:30p and you are so going to want to be in a relationship with this romantic comedy.
Andrew (Ben Feldman) works for an internet dating company and he is of the few men who still believes in love. Zelda (Cristin Milioti) is a lawyer and she has given up on love. Tonight these two opposites are going to meet and we will follow their dating relationship for the next 8 months, 3 weeks, 5 days and 1 hour. What happens on that day almost 9 months from now, we will just have to watch this adorable show each week to find out if they will break up, get engaged or who knows? Here’s a little inside information, even the actors don’t know.
Even though Andrew and Zelda meet for the first time tonight, this isn’t the first time that they have seen each other. A few years ago, they both went to the same concert and saw each other from the distance. At that moment, Andrew feel in love with that woman. A moment that seems too good to be true and perfect for television, but it really happened between the creator and his now wife. Ben Queen shared this story about his chance encounter at the NBC TCA Summer Press Tour Day. He told us, “My wife and I, we fell in love when I was 23 years old, and we got to know each other and then realized we were at the same concert a few years earlier. I remember being in that lobby, I was there with somebody I didn’t want to be with. I remember looking across and seeing this girl there and thinking, ‘I wish I was here with this girl.'” Then he added, “When I found out that she was there at that same show, I was like, ‘That obviously was you, right?’ Her take on it was, ‘Yeah, maybe,’ which is pretty much our relationship.”
As you can tell, Queen and his Queen are opposites who attracted. Well for Feldman and Milioti, it is the same thing but in a different way. Feldman explained, “We’re not only playing characters that are opposites, but we’re sort of playing characters that are opposites of us. She’s a little more like Andrew and I’m more like Zelda in real life.” To which Miloti added, “I think that’s very interesting, that the two people that they chose actually are playing opposites of each other. I would say you’re much more like Zelda.”
When it comes to the two of them getting the roles, it was instant chemistry for the actors. Queen shared this about their first meeting, “When they got together in the room to actually do the network test, they had literally met each other an hour before. It was real electric. You could see it. There was real genuine chemistry between these two that I’d been told that this thing existed, and it’s real.”
An electric feeling you will see come to life tonight and every Thursday at 9:30p in this darling love story about two people who meet, fall in love and find out they have seen each other before. So make sure to add this show to your season pass when you are done reading this because just like Andrew and Zelda, it is love at first sight.
Tonight at 8p, Gotham, the most anticipated new show of the season debuts on Fox and you won’t be disappointed.
Gotham is the prequel to Batman, so the city’s most notorious residents are basically unknowns. We will see their backstories come to life as we watch Bruce Wayne grow up to be a man, Batman to be exact.
I am not a Caped Crusader aficionado, but I was still able to spot many of the characters without their famous looks. That makes the show so much fun for newbies like me and fans alike.
Before James Gordon (Ben McKenzie) was the commissioner, he just got promoted to detective. The city is corrupt and so is his partner, Harvey Bullock (Donal Logue). Although, there might be some redeeming qualities to him.
The two of them have just been partnered up and their first case is a murder. It is a high profile one because the murdered couple are two Gotham’s wealthiest people, Thomas and Martha Wayne. Their 12-year-old son, Bruce (David Mazouz), witnessed the shooting and he is the only survivor. Gordon promises the future superhero that he will do everything in his power to capture this guy.
For Gordon, that means his partner and him will go to Fish Mooney (Jada Pinkett Smith) for help. She has a deal with the department, she works with them and they let her get away with a lot. She doesn’t work alone, and several of the villains we know get their start with her. The first one you will recognize is Oswald Cobblepot played by Robin Lord Taylor. Taylor’s portrayal of Penguin is so spot on that by the end of the episode you will be saying that he is the break out male star of the season.
I don’t want to tell you too much more because I want you to watch this as kid reading a comic book for the first time.
Gotham truly is like you are watching a movie every week, but you are only watching a TV show that has so much more to offer.
You don’t have to be a Comic Book geek to love this show. If you are one, then you probably are going to love this show just as much. Maybe even more than us newbies. I know my dad sounded like a little boy when he was describing the backstories to me after he watched a promo for the show yesterday. I had to cheat today to find out who was who, and he knows them all by heart. He will not be alone. I have a feeling there will be plenty of men who will become boys again tonight as they watch the series premiere of Gotham.
Then at 9p, good things come to those who wait. Sleepy Hollow is finally back!
The episode picks up a year after the season finale. Ichabod Crane (Tom Mison) and Abby Mills (Nicole Beharie) are together again and they are remembering the people they loved and lost that night. For the last year, things have been quiet in Sleepy Hollow, and now they are getting noisy again because the Headless Horseman is back.
Now they have to prepare to fight him and they are ready. But are they truly up for it?
You just have to tune in to find out and for an hour of surprises after shocks followed by OMG moments, and that is only the first half of the show. You don’t want to miss Sleepy Hollow because it is anything but sleepy or hollow!
I know a lot people are saying that Thursday nights on ABC has the best pairings of shows on television this season, and they are so wrong. It’s all about Mondays on Fox because this is the best pairing of shows since I don’t know when. This is the strongest night for any network, sorry Shondaland fans but this is night that everyone will be talking about the next day.
Meredith Vieria has a daytime talk show premiering on Monday and today they released the first clip to promote it. In the video, we see her playing Car-aoke with Jennifer Lopez and Hoda Kotb. Basically, she sings a song as J-Lo tries to guess what she is singing.
If she keeps playing this game on her show, I am not sure how much of a Survivor she will be because her singing is worse than siting through J-Lo’s movies. Brutal.
But hey, if she is willing to show us how bad of a singer she is on day one, just think what she is willing to do and say to keep us watching. That is a good thing. Right?
