seinfeldsDays after word spread that Jerry Seinfeld, former costar Jason Alexander and Seinfeld cocreator Larry David had met up to film something at Tom’s Restaurant in New York City (aka the defunct sitcom’s fictional “Monk’s”), Jerry Seinfeld himself has given few but little clues.

The Great Food RaceIf there is one format that I’m interested in watching this year, it is The Great Food Race.  Sunday night is going to be an epic battle between the new comer from TV3 and the juggernaut that is the newly revamped Masterchef fanchise over on TV One.  TV3 have cleverly started the show 30 minutes before the cooking show on the other channel which may help nab some viewers away from Sunday but with two episodes per week for the TVNZ show, there are some advantages which should lift overall viewership.

Let the games begin!  The Great Food Race, the brand new show from the makers of The Block NZ premieres this Sunday, at 7pm on TV3.

Hosted by Zoe Marshall, The Great Food Race blends food, entertaining, racing and travel in a brand new competition.  There are no restaurants and no dreams of becoming a professional chef.  Instead, the contestants are inspired by great home cooking, love entertaining and enjoy providing their guests with an experience to remember. They believe that they can provide these things anywhere in New Zealand – or the world. Continue reading »
