More Guy and Another Food Network Star

After recklessly spreading rumors earlier today, we actually have some confirmed news to share with you tonight.
Broadcasting & Cable has word that the Food Network is renewing Guy’s Big Bite for a second season of thirteen more episodes.
The Next Food Network Star is also coming back for another season, its third.
The show, in which aspiring TV chefs compete for a show on the channel, is casting now. Filming will begin with eight new contestants in New York in January and the show is set to debut in June.Much has been made of the recent strides other networks have made into the Food Network’s turf, particularly with the success of Hell’s Kitchen and Top Chef (which is expected to be back in October with new host Padma Lakshmi). So it’s no surprise that FN’s reality-competition show – a format that encourages repeat and loyal viewership – will be back for another go.
