Bobby Flay Almost Takes Ari Outside to Fight on 'Entourage' (VIDEO)

Bobby Flay, 'Entourage'Ari Gold doesn't specialize in calmly enjoying what he's got. An essential part of his character is that he's always striving to close another deal, make more money or exact revenge against someone who's wronged him. On the latest 'Entourage' (Sun., 10PM ET on HBO), he hooked up with the beautiful Constance Zimmer, playing his old flame and rival Dana Gordon, but wasn't satisfied with that, and felt compelled to rub it in his wife and her new man Bobby Flay's faces.

Ari took Gordon to Bobby Flay's restaurant in the hopes that Flay would see him with his new lady, and maybe go home and tell Ari's ex-wife about it, hoping it would make her jealous.

Flay knew exactly what was going on, and Dana was no fool either. We'd say that we would hope Ari could find some genuine joy and happiness in his life by the close of the series run, but at the same time it seems appropriate to have him yelling and losing his mind over something ridiculous in the last moments we see him.

'Food Network Star' finaleGoing into tonight's finale, it was Susie Jiminez, Jeff Mauro and Vic Moea vying to be the next 'Food Network Star' (Sun., 9PM ET on Food). As part of the finale, the top two finalists would actually film the pilots for their proposed new shows on Food Network.

!!SPOILER ALERT!!

First, there was a camera challenge that had them preparing their favorite dishes and presenting them. It was after this round that Vic was eliminated, leaving Susie and Jeff to film their pilots and convince the Food Network they could be the next big thing.

To help in the decision-making process, all the eliminated contestants came back to serve as a focus group for the pilots as well. Susie offered up an installment of her modern Mexican dream show 'Spice It Up,' while Jeff stuck with his passion and 'Sandwich King.'

Bobby Flay Talks About His 'Entourage' Affair, Cooks Peach Relish on 'Today' (VIDEO)

Bobby Flay talks about his 'Entourage' role on 'Today'Bobby Flay showed some versatility on 'Today' (weekdays, 7AM on NBC), discussing his acting role on 'Entourage' while he was cooking up a nice peach relish with Matt Lauer. Flay seemed a little nervous while describing the 'Entourage' appearance, in which he plays "Bobby Flay," a celebrity chef dating Ari Gold's wife while the couple is separated.

"I'm playing a fictional version of Bobby Flay," he said, "because in the show, there's a restaurant called Flay's In L.A., which doesn't exist. And I'm also single on the show, but ..." "Having an affair with Ari's wife," interjected Lauer. Flay was quick to point out that he is married in real life, and that the role was "kind of weird." It caused no trouble at home, though. "It's going fine, actually," he said, "because the actress who plays Mrs. Ari, Perrey Reeves, and my wife are very good friends."

Ari Flips Out After Learning His Wife's Dating Bobby Flay on 'Entourage' (VIDEO)

'Entourage' - 'Out With a Bang'An angry Ari can be a very dangerous thing on 'Entourage' (Sun., 10:30PM ET on HBO). Just ask the poor waiter who got in his crosshairs for ... well, for doing nothing as it turns out. Ari only thought he was the mystery guy his wife is dating. For that, Ari ruined his 'Mad Men' audition.

Later, he found out the reason she was going to that restaurant -- one that he loves -- is because she's dating it's owner, one Bobby Flay. Small consolation for the waiter, but Ari's got bigger fish to fry now.

On the one hand, it's great that he doesn't have to be humiliated because she's dating someone as lowly as a waiter, but on the other hand it's his duty (for some reason) to despise whomever she dates. And because he cannot calm down and be mature about it, he instead informs his staff that as Bobby Flay is now his enemy number one, he must also be their enemy number one.

The Final Five Face a Panel of Comedians on 'Food Network Star' (VIDEO)

Aubrey Plaza, 'Food Network Star'To make it into the final four, the remaining contestants had to make it through a comedy round on 'Food Network Star' (Sun., 9PM ET on Food). They didn't have to tell jokes, even though that's what Jeff used to do for a living. He even gave the celebrity comedians a sampling of his comedy stylings.

"I would give you a cooking show just to make sure you never did stand-up again," Gilbert Gottfried told him after a joke fell very flat with the panel.

Even though his comedy didn't go over well, they did like his Italian roast beef sandwich, and his presence. When asked if they'd watch a cooking show about sandwiches, Louie Anderson said, "I'd watch him."

Penny Gets a Scolding But Stays in the Competition on 'Food Network Star' (VIDEO)

'The Next Food Network Star'Penny blew up at her competitor Mary Beth on 'Food Network Star' (Sundays, 9PM on Food Network) Sunday night, and the judges took note. She was scolded in front of the rest of the contestants, but luckily for her, she makes a mean filet mignon kebab and Greek salad wrap, which eventually saved her.

"You know, Penny, if we had to pick one person who has the most animosity towards them, it has to be you," said judge Bobby Flay. Fellow judge Giada De Laurentiis was similarly umimpressed with Penny's attitude, but loved her food. "We are a Food Network family -- you have to get along with people behind the scenes," she said. She also said her wrap was "the best on the truck."

Five Burning Questions About the Food Network

by Allison Waldman, posted Apr 5th 2010 2:08PM

Whether it's 'The Barefoot Contessa' or 'Tyler's Ultimate,' there's a wide variety of food, cooking, chefs and experts on The Food Network. For the most part, the diversity is great and if you're a food fan -- a foodie -- you can watch FN for hours on end and be entertained. However, if you do watch for more than a few hours, especially the 'in the kitchen' programming which is all about creating dishes, there are some things that stand out -- five burning questions about the Food Network.

1. What's with the hygiene?
On nearly every cooking show, the food preparers -- whether they're an American Iron Chef like Bobby Flay or a restaurant owner/home cook like Paula Deen -- are obsessive about washing their hands. Any time they touch meat or chicken, there's a camera following them to the sink to wash hands with soap.

NBC Adds Bobby Flay to Its Menu

by Kim Potts, posted Mar 15th 2010 9:30AM
Bobby Flay is putting his money where he hopes America's mouth will be.

The restaurateur, cookbook author and Food Network chef has joined the cast of NBC's upcoming reality series 'America's Next Great Restaurant,' in which Flay and a panel of his fellow chefs and business giants will help launch a new restaurant chain dreamed up by one of the show's contestants.

Not only will Flay and his panel select the winning idea, they'll also use their own money to become investors in the new eatery chain.

Contestants needn't be chefs, or have any cooking experience at all, really. Instead, those whose initial ideas impress the judges will then be put through a series of challenges that will test their business savvy, including how well they can manage a staff, how marketable their idea is and how crafty they are in creating a menu.

Chef Bobby Flay Cooks Up NBC Restaurant Show

bobby_flay_grill_smilingNBC is determined to get a piece of the delicious pie that's known and cooking television. While Food Network would seem to be the destination of choice for all things culinary, Bravo's had successes with 'Top Chef' and 'Top Chef Masters,' so NBC is enlisting those producers to cook up something foodie for its network that'll actually succeed. NBC has hired chef Bobby Flay to top line 'America's Next Great Restaurant,' a new food competition show to air next season.

Bobby Flay's
already one of the most prolific stars at Food Network. He's on 'Iron Chef' as one of America's iron chefs, he's a judge on 'The Next Food Network Star,' and hosts (or has hosted) 'Throwdown,' 'Boy Meets Grill' and 'Grill It.' You would think he's busy enough with FN -- as well as four restaurants of his own -- but the lure of NBC has clearly gotten to him. This new show, formerly called 'United Plates of America' will likely get a major promotion by NBC.

It's been weeks now, and still, President Barack Obama has had nothing to say about two of the greatest threats to American security.

We're speaking, of course, about Snooki and The Situation, from MTV's new series 'Jersey Shore.' Alas, according to First Lady Michelle Obama, it's a show the First Family does not watch. "I've heard about it," Mrs Obama tells People, in an interview all about the Obamas' TV viewing preferences. "Not seen it."

Alton Brown calls Top Chef a "sous chef kind of show"... then takes it back

by Joel Keller, posted Oct 8th 2009 1:02PM
Alton BrownGiven the popularity of the second-season opener of The Next Iron Chef, I figured it was a good time to pull out this interview I did with the show's host, Alton Brown, at the network's TCA party in July. It was definitely the tastiest party of the tour, as each Iron Chef contestant plied the critics with delectable morsels of their creativity at various stations.

In a bit of a surprise, one of the contestants, Amanda Freitag, was being assisted by her friend Ariane Duarte, one of the more popular contestants from rival program Top Chef's New York season (I was so flabbergasted by the turn of events, I snapped a pic of the two with my cell phone). When I pointed this tidbit out to Brown, his response was very interesting...
