PBS reality series "Cooking Under Fire" starts tonight

I have no connection to PBS but wanted to pass this on...

Billing itself as "reality TV that feeds your brain", this primetime series starts tonight on select PBS stations (see link to check your local listings). It's at 8pm on Ch. 9 KQED Bay Area. Premise centers around 12 contestants vying for one chef position at one of Todd English's restaurants in NYC. Their battles will take place in the kitchens of 4 major cities: LA (Sona being one), Las Vegas, Miami, and NYC. The main judges are Todd English, Ming Tsai, and Michael Ruhlman (no female chef judge a la Paula Abdul?) who will be joined by local guest judges that are supposedly big names.

An alternative to Emeril on FoodTV! Should be interesting to see restaurant reality TV PBS-style...
