More food TV shows to keep your TiVo happy

| 1 Comment

And the food TV shows just keep on coming.

TLC, which is on the road filming Art Smith's new series on comfort food, debuts yet another food-obsessed show at 9 tonight: "BBQ Pitmasters," an eight-episode "docu-series" that delves into the competitive barbecue circuit.

The show follows pitmasters from Texas, Georgia, Virginia and California as they tackle six competitions, including the Murphysboro Barbecue Cook-Off in Downstate Murphysboro. (But what? No Gary Wiviott? Something's not right.)

TLC is really getting into this food game. Their Discovery Channel's Planet Green is responsible for Homaro Cantu's Future Food series, also filming now, in which the moto chef applies his culinary derring-do to environmental issues.

Meanwhile, for lighter (for lack of a better word) fare, head over to the Food Network for the new series, "Worst Cooks in America." Yup, it's just as it sounds -- 12 hapless, hopeless souls (and two hosts you've never heard of) vying for their time in the spotlight. It premieres Jan. 3.
