If the folks at the Food Network are good at one thing, it’s promoting a new show. You’re practically unable to make it to a new show premier without having seen (very, very many) teaser commercials. And, frankly, with a network that tends to shuffle the lineup around from time to time, this is a good thing. I mean, I probably would have missed Ham on the Street were it not for the 435 promos we were shown before it debuted.
Anyway, the current push is for Throwdown! with Bobby Flay, which features the grill-meister mixing it up with unsuspecting chefs who “believe that Food Network is shooting their profile for a show.” Little do they know…they’re in for a crushing defeat at the hands of Mr. Flay usually reserved only for those foolish enough to wander into Kitchen Stadium.
The spots feature a Terminator-like Bobby Flay, complete with computer graphics and, well, let’s just say it’s a bit much.
Yeah…you can probably tell I’m not a huge Bobby Flay fan.
The new show debuts on Thursday, July 19th at 10pm/9pm central. Check back after then for a review from yours truly.
