Food Network Announces Show Lineup For 2009 and 2010

Food Network Stirs the Pot With New Lineup

Belong to the camp that loves watching the Food Network? You'll be happy to know that it's not only bringing back some of its popular shows for more seasons, but it'll also be adding some surprising new developments into the mix.

The Next Food Network Star is back for a fifth season in June — and a sixth is already planned for 2010. Once Top Chef Masters is over, you can tune into season two of The Next Iron Chef, which returns in October. Wondering what happened to season one contestants Chris Cosentino and Aaron Sanchez? Well, they'll be featured in a new program called Chef vs. City.

In the show, which debuts this July, the duo will be "pitted against two local foodies in a winner-takes-all race through a different city each week."

Intrigue is only one word we have for a new cooking show airing in August, starring none other than — you'll never guess — Olympic gold medalist Brian Boitano. In the daytime show — tentatively and humorously titled What Would Brian Boitano Make?, the ice skater will demonstrate how he entertains for friends.

Also coming this year is Sandra Lee's budget-friendly cooking show Sandra's Money Saving Meals and Extreme Cuisine With Jeff Corwin, which sounds like Food Network's answer to Bizarre Foods. In 2010's lineup, Rescue Chef Danny Boome will host a new series that shows diners how to prepare healthier, cheaper versions of their favorite take-out dishes; Alton Brown will host a miniseries on foods that have changed the world; and Anne Burrell tackles a team of hopeless home cooks in Worst Cooks in America.

I can't wait to check out Boitano's show, for the shock factor. I'll also tune into watch Chris Cosentino and Aaron Sanchez, some of my favorites from Next Iron Chef. What shows are you looking forward to watching?

ilanac13 -- that's awesome! What was he like in person?
ilanac13 ilanac13 8 years many interesting things to talk about. let's see - the next food network star - that one i feel like it's run it's course. to be honest, guy is really the only guy that's been successful from the show - why can't they just cut their losses. as for chef vs. city - i actually saw arron sanchaz in his mother's restaurant in NYC - which happens to be one of my favs...and he was telling me about the show. i can't wait to see him in action again.

What Would Brian Boitano Make? just begs for an entire South Park episode, which is undoubtedly the reason for the title. I hate Sandra Lee with a fiery passion (enough to sit and watch her show to mock her). I doubt her cost cutting tips are going to be all that healthy.

One of my fave figure skaters on one of my fave channels? AWESOME. I'm intrigued. Love the changing the world foods idea with Alton Brown! (Agreed, however, that the new hairdo needs to go!) The Sandra Lee and Danny Boome show seem new and refreshing while the others are just the same ol'.

Yeah Brian! I have met Brian several times cause of my nephew's comp. ice skating and I know that he was planning opening a new restaurant with his parents and that he loves to cook. Great guy, knows his way around a pro kitchen.

I love Chris Cosentino; I'm sure he'll work some offal style elements into his show

Anything Alton Brown. I love him (but not the new hairstyle).

I love "The Next Food Network Star", so I'll definitely be watching that. I think "Worst Cook in America" sounds kind of interesting, even though Anne Burell grates on my nerves a little bit. I'll probably check out Sandra Lee's show, but I usually don't care for her style of recipes, so I'd be curious to see what she comes up with.
