'Man Vs. Food' Live Recap: Adam Richman Eats a 48 Oz. Steak

by Chris Jordan, posted Feb 4th 2010 9:30AM
For 'Man vs. Food' host Adam Richman, eating is a sport, so with the Super Bowl coming up this weekend, he naturally had to set the highest bar possible. So he decided Wednesday night to put the bite on a 48-ounce streak at the Don Shula Streakhouse in Miami during a special 'Man v. Food Live' broadcast on the Travel Channel.

And he kept biting and biting. Richman devoured the streak in less than the allotted 20 minutes to win the evening's challenge, the first in the show's run to be broadcast live.

New TV on DVD releases this week

by Bob Sassone, posted Oct 5th 2009 6:00PM
Heeere's JohnnyHere are the new TV DVDs, in stores tomorrow.

Not only is The Lola Falana Show on DVD now, I didn't even know there was a Lola Falana Show. I knew that there was a Lola Falana (that's a fun name to say: Lola Falana Lola Falana Lola Falana). She was a dancer and actress who was pretty well known back in the 70s, but her TV show escaped my radar. This set includes guest stars Dick Van Dyke, Bill Cosby, Sonny and Cher, and Muhammad Ali.

There's also a Heeere's Johnny: The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson "Holiday Set." It looks like the same set that I've owned for a couple of years (several DVDs split up into different categories: Timeless Moments, Standup Comedians, Carson Country, and the original Ultimate Collection disc), but with a special Christmas disc thrown in, with three classic episodes.
  • Ally McBeal - Season 1 and Complete Series
  • Astroboy - Vols 1 and 2
  • Blood Ties - Season 2

Man v. Food does not celebrate obesity... somehow - TCA Report

by Joel Keller, posted Jul 28th 2009 7:33PM
Adam RichmanHowdy from Pasadena! Anyone who's been following either TV Squad's or my personal Twitter feed has noticed that I've been busy at the first day of the TCA press tour. Cable is up first; today was a relatively light day, with the Travel Channel, Fox Reality, and Turner making presentations. AMC will have a cocktail party later today, where I'm sure Matthew Weiner is going to be bombarded by reporters with Mad Men questions before he even reaches the shrimp spread.

The first panel was for the Travel Channel's ode to regional food and gluttony, Man v. Food. Host Adam Richman and executive producer Charlie Parsons took questions from the critics about their upcoming second season and about why they pick the cities they pick. I love the show, but I always wondered how Richman was able to withstand the quantity challenges he puts himself through in many of the episodes. Richman's answer? A workout regimen that makes him sound more like a GNC employee than a guy scarfing seven pound cheeseburgers.
