Primetime Picks… 4/21/19

Tonight Worst Cooks in America returns for its 16th season on Food Network, and this time it’s another Celebrity Edition. Like I said last week with The Amazing Race, I prefer these reality competition shows when they are just normal folks, but I usually still have a lot of fun with this show no matter who the cast is.

Tyler Florence and Anne Burrell will once again be competing to see who can whip their kitchen disasters into shape. The season’s eight new “celebrity” recruits include Jim J. Bullock (Too Close For Comfort, Hollywood Squares mainstay), Morgan Fairchild (Dallas, Falcon Crest), Jonathan Lipnicki (the now grown-up little boy from Jerry Maguire), Olympic ice skater Tonya Harding (the one who orchestrated an attack on her skating rival Nancy Kerrigan—those other kitchen recruits better watch out!), Taryn Manning (Orange is the New Black), Alec Mapa (Ugly Betty, Desperate Housewives), Kym Whitley (Young & Hungry) and Jimmie Walker (Good Times).

In tonight’s premiere, “Celebrity: This Isn’t How It Looks in the Pictures”, eight of the worst celebrity cooks in America arrive at culinary boot camp, and chefs Anne Burrell and Tyler Florence ask them each to cook their favorite restaurant dish to see how they measure up to the original.

Tonight I’ll also be watching/recording Good Girls, Supergirl, Killing Eve, A Discovery of Witches, Game of Thrones, Barry, and Veep.
