Just wanted to let you all know that Top Chef has moved to Thursdays starting tonight. Its a really fun season so far. We’ve had three eliminations and only one female chef has gone so far! It’s like a Christmas miracle. That said, I predict the Vagicide by Collichio to begin in earnest tonight. On the other hand, there are a couple of female chefs with a good shot at winning. And of course there is the breakout fan favorite, Jim Smith, Executive Chef for the State of Alabama. As it turns out, I know someone who is BFF’s with Jim and sent me a short little documentary they made about a famous chicken shack in Troy, Alabama. Jim does sort of a critique of two of the stores. It’s a cute watch, but I should warn you not to watch if you’re hungry. I’ll post the Youtube at the end of this post. You can catch the new episode tonight at 10 p.m. on Bravo.
Tonight is also the season finale of Project Runway. If you haven’t been watching this season, you can get caught up on all the fabulous recaps by fashion expert extraordinaire, CJ Bomb here. CJ is hysterical. And she usually has someone equally amusing watching along with her. If you are stuck in a room at your in-laws looking for something to read online, scroll all the way back to the first episode of the season and get to reading. The finale is at a new time tonight from 8-10 p.m on Lifetime.
EDITED: I forgot an really important part! Project Runway Junior starts tonight at 10! On Lifetime!
In other programming notes, PBS is re-airing lots of Downton Abbey stuff this weekend. Tomorrow at noon they are airing the episode about filming the show and how they make sure to do everything the proper way. Then on Monday, last they are running the Entire First Season from 12-8. I am not sure I ever saw the first season, so this is exciting news. Even better, on Tuesday the run the entire season 2 back starting at noon. On Wednesday at noon they start season three. Thursday is season 4, Friday is season 5 and Saturday is the sixth and finale season. EVERY SINGLE DOWNTON ABBEY EPISODE! What a great Christmas present from PBS!
I forgot the Crowe’s Chicken documentary!
