I don’t watch Top Chef. I find the drama to be completely fake and a waste of valuable foodie TV time. (If you want to see the current gold standard of food competition shows, check out “Chopped” on Food Network, and yes I’m excited for “Chopped All Stars” starting this weekend.)
As dumb as I ever thought a column about nachos in the media would be, there is never a shortage of material. Look back at old Simpsons episodes, for example, and you’ll see our favorite snack pop up time and time again. Comedy writers just seem to have a thing for it.
When I booted up my computer this morning I got a flurry of emails and IMs telling me I needed to watch David Letterman and Ellen appearing to do the Top Ten. While I know Ellen is a household name, I’m not a huge fan of her program, so I was incredulous of it’s value.
