Rat in the Kitchen Review

Reality competition shows are the norm these days. It takes a creative mind to create a concept that will keep the viewers coming back week after week.

Rat in the Kitchen is the newest program on the TBS schedule. Hosted by actress/comedienne Natasha Leggero and judged by chef Ludo Lefebvre, six chefs compete for a cash prize. The twist is that one of them is deliberately sabotaging their fellow contestant’s dishes. If the group is able to guess who is doing who the rat is, they win the money in their collective bank. But if this person is able to successfully remain unnoticed until the end of the episode, they walk away with a full wallet.

I had fun watching this show. The question is more than who will make the best dish. The guessing game of who the rat is kept me engaged and watching until the closing credits rolled.

Do I recommend it? Yes.

Rat in the Kitchen airs on TBS on Thursday night at 9PM.


Throwback Thursday-Full Frontal with Samantha Bee (2016-Present)

For the most part, late night TV has been a boys game. Only a handful of women have been able to be successful in the genre.

Samantha Bee is one of them.

Her late night talk show, Full Frontal with Samantha Bee premiered in 2016 on TBS and has been a smash hit ever since. Combining news with satire, social commentary and a biting feminist wit, Bee presents the news of the day with a perspective that I believe is sorely needed.

I am huge fan of this show. Bee is smart, inquisitive and incredibly funny. This show is the perfect antidote to the staid and sometimes scary news that tells the story of our era.

I absolutely recommend it.
