Anthony Anderson Eats America for Food Network

Anthony Anderson

To call Anthony Anderson a foodie is a bit of an understatement. The 43-year-old actor has competed on Food Network's Chopped, judged episodes of Iron Chef America, and has vowed to go to culinary school. "Within the next couple of years," Anderson specifies. "The kids will be off at college, the bills will be paid, and I won't have to worry about anything except how I'm gonna make this Alfredo sauce from scratch." So when Food Network was pitched the idea to tour the U.S. in search of the nation's coolest food festivals, they had the perfect host in mind. "I said, 'That's right up my alley, let's make that happen,'" Anderson recalls. The result is Eating America With Anthony Anderson, which premieres Monday, July 28 at 9/8c.

The Taste's French Chef Ludo Lefebvre: It's Game On!

Ludovic Lefebvre

"Trust me. It's game on!"

Chef Ludo Lefebvre is psyched for viewers to watch Tuesday's episode of The Taste (8/7c, ABC), when the culinary reality series shifts from the audition to competition rounds. Now that he and his fellow mentors -- Anthony Bourdain, Nigella Lawson and Brian Malarkey -- have chosen their four-person teams of home cooks and professional chefs, it's time to pit them against each other. Beyond the increased heat in the kitchen, the possibility of eliminating one of their own team members during the blind taste-test drove the mentors to drink.

Then the TV gods went and brought back read more

Next Iron Chef's Spike on the New Twist, "Culinary Assassin" Anthony Bourdain

Spike Mendelsohn

Chef Spike Mendelsohn may have competed on Bravo's culinary reality show Top Chef -- twice -- but he still didn't expect to be recruited for Food Network's Next Iron Chef: Super Chefs, which premieres Sunday at 9/8c.

"I got the phone call out of nowhere. I was actually quite surprised," Mendelsohn tells "I didn't expect them to cast me as part of this crew, alongside the other ones. I was definitely honored to have the opportunity. There are a lot of chefs involved that I look up to and I follow their careers. To be standing next to them, was kind of like, 'OK, you made it.'"

So who died when that small plane crashed into the Wisteria Lane Christmas party? Karl and Orson certainly took a hit. Could either of them have survived? Mona sure looked like a goner, too. Don't look for the Bolens to grieve if she was. And how about Lynette, sweeping in to save Juanita? It might get her back into Gaby's good graces, but what could it have done to her unborn twins? (And will the episode make Gaby a more attentive mom?) Questions to ponder in an episode titled "If..."

Drew Barrymore takes over hosting chores in the third live episode of the season. Barrymore produced, directed and stars in the freshly released film Whip It (which also stars SNL player Kristen Wiig), about the rough-and-tough realm of female roller-derby players. Barrymore should skate well through the show's topical satire — this is her sixth time performing as host. (Back in 1982, she was the show's youngest host ever, at age 7.) Taking the music stage: singer-songwriter Regina Spektor.
