Tina and Robin Make Sweet Treats for the World Series of Poker on 'Cupcake Wars' (VIDEO)

by Nick Zaino, posted Aug 24th 2011 5:30PM
Cupcake displays for the World Series of Poker on 'Cupcake Wars'The challenge Tina and Robin faced on 'Cupcake Wars' (Tuesdays, 8PM on Food Network) was to make treats delicious enough to impress people who make a living by hiding their enthusiasm. That is, they each had to create a 1,000-cupcake display for the World Series of Poker.

Things started well enough in the idea stage. Tina planned for four tiers, each one looking like a poker chip and adorned with glitz and four aces across the top. Robin had a similar idea, to create a poker table with tiers that looked like chips and "fanning across the very top, how about the best hand you could have, would be a royal flush," she said.

Five Shows I'm Looking Forward To This Summer

by Bob Sassone, posted Apr 8th 2010 1:05PM
Mad Men
Since summer is the time for beaches, parades, cookouts, and fireworks, and I hate beaches, parades, cookouts, and fireworks, it's TV time! That's especially true since there are more original shows on summer now than there used to be. Here are the five shows I'm looking forward to the most. And none of them are reality shows.

1. 'Mad Men.' To use a popular phrase, duh. Of course this is number one on my list. It's still weird to me that the best drama on television is a summer show. I don't know why this is still surprising, since we're not living in 1980 anymore and summer in a real TV season now and not just a place for repeats, reality shows, and shows that need to be burned off.

Maybe it's best that this show airs in the summer. It has a little more breathing room than it would have if it debuted in October.

The 2009 World Series of Poker: season finale - open thread

by Bob Sassone, posted Nov 11th 2009 1:29PM
WSOPWe don't usually have open threads about sporting events here at TV Squad, but last night was the big finale of the 2009 World Series of Poker on ESPN, and I wanted to post this for two reasons. One, to find out what you thought of the exciting battle between logger Darvin Moon and 21 year-old Joe Cada, and two to find out how many people are actually still interested in watching poker on television.

Poker was massive on TV a few years ago, but is it still?

Does anyone in Hollywood not play professional poker?

by Danny Gallagher, posted Oct 13th 2009 8:01PM
I'm starting to wonder if TV and movie stars playing poker is more than just an interesting trend. Maybe it's a requirement.

Jason Alexander recently popped up on my TV, not in a Seinfeld rerun or his recent appearance on Curb Your Enthusiasm but in the most recent World Series of Poker. And it didn't look as though he was there playing with his own money. He appeared to have his own sponsor and everything.

Here is ESPN's coverage of Alexander's elimination from the tournament. Watch for the fan at the end who accidentally calls him George. It's cringe-tastic.
