If We Controlled Your Remote… 8/16/12

We’re almost at the end of the week, and what a week it’s been—in terms of real life AND TV. There’s some great stuff on tonight, so read on to find out what we think you should be watching.

There’s a special on ABC tonight called Time Machine Chefs which looks really fun, especially if you enjoy cooking competition shows. If you’re a history buff, you might enjoy it, as well. Here’s what ABC has to say about it: “Have you ever wondered what it was like to be a chef in 1416 A.D., or to cook in a medieval castle for kings and queens during the Tudor era? Well fasten your seatbelts and prepare for a journey through time. With no modern appliances, amenities, running water or electricity, four popular chefs must create culinary masterpieces—and impress three esteemed judges—with only basic kitchen equipment, their imaginations, and craftsmanship. Only one chef will be crowned The Greatest Chef in History. The judging table consists of chef, restaurateur and cookbook author Nancy Silverton, Dave Arnold of the French Culinary Institute in New York City, and chef and cookbook author Silvena Rowe of Quince in London’s May Fair Hotel.” The four chefs include Art Smith & Chris Cosentino, both of whom are competing in the current season of Top Chef Masters. I love Chris, and I like Art, although I think sometimes he thinks he’s better than everyone else and he shows it… I don’t know the other two chefs: Ilan Hall, who won season 2 of Top Chef, and Jill Davie, a private chief in California.

I believe this is a one-time special, but Art Smith was on The Chew the other day, and it sounded like there was another one… I can’t find any info for that, so for now, I’m going on the assumption that it is indeed a one-off. Even if that’s the case, I’ll enjoy it!

Don’t miss the one-hour special tonight on ABC at 9/8c.

Tonight, I’ll also be watching/DVRing Oh Sit!, Rookie Blue, Sullivan & Son, Burn Notice, & Extreme Chef.
