Ted Allen to Join Food Network as Host of Food Detectives

Ted Allen to Join Food Network

I'm not sure if you've noticed, but the Food Network is overhauling its programing schedule. It seems like every week a new series debuts. It started back in February with the introduction of Pat and Gina Neely followed swiftly by Danny Boome. Other recent newcomers include Sunny Anderson and Mary Nolan.

Although I find it overwhelming — new chefs, new concepts, new shows, how can I get to know them all? — I'm looking forward to checking out Ted Allen! The Network announced today that they've nabbed the Top Chef judge to host a new primetime program called Food Detectives. Good Eats meets Myth Busters in the show, with Allen answering popular food questions like: Can an apple a day keep the doctor away?

The show sounds informative and interesting, and I look forward to checking it out when it debuts on July 29. What do you think, will you watch? How do you feel about all the new shows on Food Network?

Can't get enough of Ted! This show seems pretty interesting. He'll be giving a food and wine paring in Baltimore next weekend that will be similar to this:

I really hope this succeeds. Television rebranding can be disastrous.

he's certainly making his rounds keeping himself busy after queer eye ended. he's been judging on iron chef and he's been on several other shows, so we'll see what this one turns out to be like.

Does this mean he is cutting back from Top Chef?
