FOX continues to find ratings success with their cooking competitions like MasterChef, MasterChef Junior and Hell’s Kitchen. Meanwhile, ABC cancelled their series The Taste. Will Food Fighters on NBC last another year? Will it be renewed for a third season or, will it be cancelled instead? Stay tuned.
On Food Fighters, home cooks compete with professional chefs to see who can make the cook’s signature dish the best. The game show is hosted Adam Richman and the pro chefs include Lorena Garcia, Nadia G, Rocco DiSpirito, Aaron McCargo Jr., Duff Goldman, Eric Greenspan, Brian Malarkey, Marcel Vigneron, Antonia Lofaso, and Fabio Viviani.
