I've actually been really entertained by Last Chance Kitchen this season (http://www.bravotv.com/top-chef/season-10/last-chance-kitchen
Off topic: anyone catch that new cooking show with Bourdain and Nigella Lawson on ABC? Basically a cooking show with the format of The Voice (which I hasten to affirm I have never watched except for one evening when I was very bored and had nothing to entertain me except TV and some wine), with the twist that all the food is tasted blind. I thought it would really suck five minutes into it but I enjoyed it okay. The pilot was interminably long but I'm guessing once it goes to a normal one-hour format, it'll be entertaining enough for me to stick with, for a little while at least.
