Quite The Dish

Ch. 12 blows off “Entertainment Tonight” 7-8 p.m. Saturday for a one-hour special episode of “The Dish,” the weekly cooking show starring chefs Jean-Robert deCavel and Meg Galvin. It’s a promotion for the “1 Night, 12 Kitchens” fund-raiser 6-9 p.m. Sunday at the Midwest Culinary Institute at Cincinnati State Technical and Community College, where the weekly Ch 12 show is taped.
Featured on show will be chefs from four area restaurants: Jag’s Steaks & Seafood, West Chester Township; One Restaurant & Lounge, Mason; the Polo Grille, Deerfield Township; and the Brown Dog Café, Blue Ash.
"The Dish," which premiered in September, airs 9:30 a.m. Fridays on Ch. 12.

Quick Snow Job
Fox Radio wasted no time replacing the “Tony Snow Show” (9 a.m.-noon, WKRC-AM, 550), after the 1973 Princeton High School graduate was named President Bush’s press secretary Wednesday. “Brian and The Judge” debuted Thursday with Brian Kilmeade, co-host of the “Fox & Friends” morning show, and Fox judicial analyst Andrew Napolitano, a former New Jersey Superior Court judge.

Here’s what I’m putting on the DVR this weekend – the special “Saturday Night Live” devoted entirely to Robert Smigel’s “TV Funhouse” cartoons (11:30 p.m.-1 a.m. Saturday, Ch. 5) Ace & Gary from “The Ambiguously Gay Duo” (voices of Stephen Colbert and Steve Carell) will host 90 minutes of “The X-Presidents,” “Fun with Real Audio,” “Journey into the Disney Vault,” “Saddam & Osama” and other cartoons skewering Michael Jackson, Mr. T, “Peanuts,” “The Lion King” and many others.

Thanks for all the postings about new spring shows and TV worth watching. Keep 'em coming.

TV is a major wasteland. Even the promising new "creative shows" in their second seasons have lost their steam and their way. How long can "Lost" drag on? Slow...slow...slow. "Desperate Housewives" is becoming desperately boring. All we need is another L&O or CSI. Hollywood has just proven that they have totally run out of ideas and are tired out themselves. The big networks need to be more innovative like HBO and Showtime and concentrate on more quality and less episodes. Only shows like "24" are worthy of 24 episodes these days. Maybe the CW and MyNetworkTV experiments will bring some fresh air into the picture much like Operation Prime Time did back in the late 70's and early 80's.

I really think Brad Whitford is positioning for an Emmy. He has been absolutely amazing the past few episodes of the West Wing. The show has found some of what has been lost just in time to leave the air. Other than west wing, the only two shows that are "can't miss" for me are Boston Legal and Grey's Anatomy. Small reminders of what good tv writing and good acting can do.

That picture of the "Dynasty" cast on the LIFE homepage is of impersonators. Did the editors miss that?
