  • New Food Network Culinary Competition Pits Pros Against Passionate Amateurs in "Bakers vs. Fakers"
    Four competitors battle it out each episode for ultimate bragging rights and a cash prize, as Buddy Valastro hosts this new culinary competition series.
    Series Premieres Wednesday, January 25th at 10pm ET/PT
    NEW YORK - December 22, 2016 - Four competitors battle it out each episode for ultimate bragging rights and a cash prize, as Buddy Valastro hosts new culinary competition series Bakers vs. Fakers, premiering Wednesday, January 25th at 10pm ET/PT on Food Network. Over two rounds of culinary challenges, a mix of home bakers and professional chefs must come up with delectable desserts that need to impress a rotating panel of guest judges, including Damiano Carrara, Nancy Fuller, Paulette Goto, Alex Guarnaschelli, Daphne Oz, Damaris Phillips, Lorraine Pascale, Natalie Sideserf, and Zac Young. With no higher standards for the professionals and no sympathy for the amateurs, a blind taste test will determine the best dessert. Only after the winner is selected will the true identities be revealed. If a professional is victorious, they take home $10,000, but if an amateur can beat the odds and take down the pros, they walk away with $15,000!
    "As we have seen with the success of Cooks vs. Cons, not knowing who is the professional and who is the amateur makes the suspense that much greater for viewers at home, as they try to figure out, along with the host and judges, which competitors are bakers and which are fakers," said Didi O'Hearn, Senior Vice President Programming, Food Network & Cooking Channel.
    In each one-hour episode the four competitors are put to the test, showcasing they have what it takes to beat their fellow opponents, while proving to the judges why they should be victorious. During one episode things ignite as the four bakers are confronted with using hot peppers to create spicy cupcakes. Judges Lorraine Pascale and Damaris Phillips join Buddy Valastro, in sifting out the bakers from the fakers. After one baker is eliminated, the remaining three move on to round two, where they must use school snacks in their winning dish, with the winner walking away with a cash prize. In another episode, judges Alex Guarnaschelli and Paulette Goto challenge the professional and amateur bakers to cobble together a gooey treat by using cheese in fruit cobblers. The bakers who move on to round two find the challenge twice as nice when rice must be used to find the sweet spot in the winning dish. And see what happens when the bakers square off in an attempt to win over host Buddy Valastro and judges Lorraine Pascale and Zac Young, as classic brownies must be combined with aromatic ginger to determine which competitors move one to round two. Catch all the fun and surprises to see if the pros or amateurs reign supreme!

    A new Smithsonian Channel four-part series provides an inside look into the men and women who re-invented the advertising industry from post-WWII America through the 1980s. THE REAL MAD MEN OF ADVERTISING: THE 1970s Premieres Sunday, January 22nd at 9 p.m. ET/PT The Regulation Revolution of the 1970s was a time when consumers got hip, government got involved, and advertisers got scared into action. The name of the game for Madison Avenue was --trust-- -- both losing it and reclaiming it. Kicked off by the banning of cigarette television commercials, it--s a decade when consumers got smart and angry, and advertisers employed the tools of the creative revolution to try and win them back with plain talk and honesty. This episode tells the story of the rise of the consumer movement, championed by Ralph Nader and his --Nader--s Raiders.-- If the 1960s promised a better world, the 70s faced the reality of delivering it. Progress is a bumpy road, but one ad -- and Mad Men finale centerpiece -- fills airwaves with a song of diversity, peace and optimism. The commercial featuring --I--d like to buy the world a Coke-- may be considered the greatest ad of all time. It certainly looked and felt the way America wanted things to be.
