Tonight In Food TV: Worst Cooks In America’s Season Finale, Plus E!’s Playing With Fire Just Starts To Get Good

Irritated with all your friends’ relentless chatter about that weird Middle Earth show coming back tonight? It’s cool; we’ve got you covered with all the food TV you can be watching instead.

First, the season finale of Worst Cooks in America airs at 9pm ET on Food Network. Anne Burrell and Bobby Flay’s remaining recruits will battle it out in a cook-off with three courses at Andrew Carmellini’s The Dutch in New York, with a judging panel of such esteemed chefs as Anita Lo. Will Anne triumph for the fourth year in a row? Stay tuned to find out, and catch a sneak peek of the first four minutes of the episode here.

Then, at 10pm ET on E!, that Todd English reality show Playing with Fire has — we hate to admit it — started to get irresistibly soapy. Todd English shoots guns at parties; the Koch Brothers are like twin restaurateur versions of Ryan Lochte; we’re obsessed with Candice Kumai’s real-life The New Girl act; and Julie Elkind is beautiful, terrifying, and makes us feel bad for how little we’ve accomplished at 25. Plus, the show is from E! and so it’s very sexy and glossy. It’s perfect Sunday night brain candy. Check out a sneak peek of tonight’s episode below.
