Joyous news, courtesy of TV Squad (and others). Chef Robert Irvine, who was unceremonioiusly dumped from his Dinner:Impossible gig when the Food Network discovered inaccuracies in his resume, has been reinstated.
Although I never watched Chef Michael Symon’s version of the show, I’m pretty psyched that Irvine is back in charge. This guy IS the show. Doing it without him is like watching House without Hugh Laurie.
I know this was probably just a business decision (better entertainment = better ratings = better ad revenue), but I think Food Network did the right thing. Chef Irvine’s new episodes are due to begin airing in March of new year.
I can’t wait.
