When Surviving Jack (Fox, Thursday, 9:30/8:30C) premieres this week, we will see something a bit different – something closely approximating a brutally honest (but not uncaring) dad. Christopher Meloni, best known for a long stint on Law & Order: Sexual Victims Unit, plays Jack Dunlevy, ex-military, oncologist and now stay-at-home dad while his wife goes to law school. His parenting skills are more ballpeen hammer than velvet glove and a source of discomfort to his teenaged son and daughter, Frankie and Rachel.
Late last week, Surviving Jack’s executive producers – Bill Lawrence, Justin Halpern (on whose book I Suck at Girls the series is based) and Patrick Schumacker spoke to a group of journalists/bloggers about the ‘90s-set comedy and the mix of skills that won Meloni the role.
Foodies and fans of Fox’s Masterchef and Masterchef Junior can now take part in a ‘culinary adventure’ – a seven day cruise on Holland America’s MS Westerdam with Masterchef judge/Michelin Star-rated chef Graham Elliot and past Masterchef and Masterchef Junior winners Christine Has, Luca Manfe and Alexander Weiss.
The cruise will feature ‘exclusive fine-dining experiences and specially curated cocktails, along with unique gourmet demonstrations and tastings.’ The Masterchef Cruise lasts from November 8 – 15. Details of the cruise and how to book can be found in the press release after the jump.
Once again, twenty would-be chefs brave the hazardous nastiness of Gordon Ramsay in an attempt to prove themselves worthy of becoming restaurateurs. Yes, once again, it’s time for kitchen gladiators to attempt to survive Hell’s Kitchen (Fox, Thursdays, 8/9C).
