Tonight, I’m looking forward to the return of Ginormous Food on Food Network. Each episode finds comedian/host Josh Denny in a new city, on the hunt for delicious but insanely proportioned food. He talks with restaurant owners and chefs to learn more about their menus and the massive signature dishes their establishments are known for and then heads into the kitchens to see how these culinary monstrosities are brought to life. After taking a bite of one of these ginormous dishes – which never seems to disappoint him – Josh provides his review and then serves up much more reasonable size portions to the other restaurant patrons, asking for their feedback. I really enjoyed the first season of this series. There were some pretty amazing looking dishes…but you’d need to be dining with the Duggars if you’d have any hope of finishing them!

On tonight’s second season premiere, “Atlanta: Barbecue, Brunch and the Bayou,” Josh rolls into Atlanta in search of a titanic Southern trinity. He hits up a BBQ joint with a 5-pound muffaletta piled high with pulled pork, brisket, collard greens, and coleslaw. Then he finds a 9-foot po’ boy boasts 30 pounds of fried shrimp, crawfish, oysters and alligator at a Louisiana-style restaurant. Finally, a true Southern staple of 3 pounds of chicken and waffles and a dozen fried eggs piled atop two-foot wide pancakes.

Check out the huge portions tonight on Food Network at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/recording The Toy Box.

My Friday nights are boring when there isn’t a new episode of Hawaii Five-0, so I am very glad it is returning tonight. It’s been a couple weeks, but on the last episode, a crew of bank robbers (former military contractors who were robbing military credit unions – as it turned out, they were trying to help support the widow of one of their men) wrecked into the car driven by a young woman, who was out for ice cream with her grandfather…one of the remaining survivors of Pearl Harbor. Having survived Pearl Harbor/WW II and beating cancer twice, his death to something as senseless as the car accident was even more heartbreaking. Not surprisingly, it hit Steve hard, and he and the group worked to find the guys responsible. The granddaughter then had his ashes taken down to be buried with the rest of the crew of the USS Arizona. The side story was all about Adam, who was working a construction job when he found what he believed to be a human bone. He told his boss, who said to ignore it, since it was one little bone. Adam chose not to listen and went back after dark to do some more digging. He didn’t find anything, but he was caught on security video and fired. Jerry did some digging (on the internet…) for him and they figured out the wife of the former real-estate agent for the land went missing, and Adam went to him with a bogus story about finding some things in the attic of the house they tore down and wanting some of his records to find their owners. That prompted the real-estate agent to go dig up his wife’s body to move it, and he was caught in the act. When Adam told Kono the truth about being fired, her reaction was just as sweet as they are together. I love them as a couple.

The biggest emotional point of the episode was for my Steve. During the investigation, he watched a documentary about Pearl Harbor, and his grandfather, whom he was named after, was mentioned. Apparently he was a hero – he died when he went back into the ship to save others. That was the reason for the purple heart Steve has in his trunk. It was very emotional for him to learn that about his grandfather, and I loved seeing him going through the pictures and unearthing the purple heart to look at it in a new light.

On tonight’s episode,”Wehe ‘ana (Prelude),” Danny protects a coma patient showing signs of waking who was the key witness from his last HPD case before he met Steve and joined Five-0. Michael Paul Chan (Major Crimes) guest stars.

To see if Danny can keep him safe and tie up this case from his past, tune in to CBS at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching Blue Bloods, Rosewood, and Undercover Boss.
