Can ABC put a primetime cooking competition show not involving Gordon Ramsay on the ratings map? We find out tonight, when The Taste premieres at 8:00pm EST. On the bright side, we’ve got Anthony Bourdain on network TV, Nigella Lawson on American TV in general, their sure-to-be spectacular interaction, Brian Malarkey’s hilarious makeover, and Ludo Lefebvre’s commercial introduction to the American public.
On the less-than-bright side, we have the introduction of the term “kitchenistas.”
Surely, we’ll all be watching, if nothing else, to watch the ship go down. But we couldn’t be more excited about it.
Check out a sneak peek below.
