General: Food Network »
Restaurant Impossible, Food Network’s newest prime-time show, premieres on Wednesday, January 19th, at 10 pm. It will feature Robert Irvine running around the country trying to breathe new life into failing restaurants that are dangerously close to shutting down. If that concept sounds familiar, it’s because THERE IS ALREADY A SHOW ABOUT THIS EXACT THING, CALLED KITCHEN NIGHTMARES WITH GORDON RAMSAY (which, ironically, will start airing new episodes on Fox this Friday night).
For those who don’t know, back in 2008, Irvine got busted for lying to the world about his accomplishments. He said he made Princess Diana’s wedding cake, cooked White House dinners, owned a house in Scotland, was friends with Prince Charles, and was knighted by the Queen. Turns out, that was all bullshit. So why is Robert Irvine suddenly all over the Food Network again? Shouldn’t he be off sweating on free weights somewhere, or trying to impress women by convincing them he and Oprah are BFF’s or something?
What’s the verdict? Have you forgiven Robert Irvine for lying about his credentials? Will you be watching this crap? Or are you sticking with Gordon?
