November is approaching fast, and though we definitely know there’s something happening that month we’re supposed to remember, we have no idea what it is. It’s some kind of important civic duty we’re supposed to participate in within the first eight days or so, but that doesn’t help much. Oh well, hopefully the new offerings from Hulu will remind us of what it is or keep us distracted long enough that we don’t feel bad about missing it. Thankfully, the latter option should be pretty easy to accomplish in November, because Hulu is getting a good amount of solidly binge-worthy TV shows and movies.
The new TV shows hitting Hulu include the complete 13th season of Top Chef, the sixth season of Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills, and the complete first seasons of Uncle Grandpa and Miles From Tomorrowland—for both young kids and »

In the video above, Blais shows how he makes the fall staple with whipped yogurt and cheddar cheese. “Yogurt and cheddar cheese with apple pie?! It sounds disgusting and bizarre!,” he admits before schooling us all about our misguided preconceived notions.

Padma Lakshmi consumes nearly 8,000 calories a day when she's filming Top Chef. But when the cameras stop rolling, the 46-year-old mother and host slims down - as she had no problem showing her Instagram followers on Thursday. In the sexy selfie, Lakshmi poses casually by a bathroom sink - wearing a black lacy La Perla bra and high-waisted panties. "Don't hate because I'm in lingerie," she wrote. "Moms do that sometimes." So just how did this mom drop the extra weight? Good 'ol diet and exercise. And in addition to her workouts, she switches to a far more restrictive diet. »

When it comes to the red carpet, you'd be surprised at what you might learn about Hollywood's biggest stars if you just ask. Take the 2016 Emmy Awards, for example, where E! caught up with two of television's most acclaimed judges, Top Chef's Padma Lakshmi and supermodel-turned-America's Got Talent judge Heidi Klum. The former revealed to E!'s Jason Kennedy that her date for the evening was hiding a serious snack stash in his suit to cope with the show's lack of food. "If you kind of frisk my date, which I don't suggest, he has all these snacks strategically placed," she revealed on camera. So, in addition to »

Like huevos rancheros dumped into a Vitamix in The Chew‘s “Can You Blend It?” segment, the food-centric ABC talk show should never have been a success. And yet, like the tasty tortilla soup that results from that experiment, it somehow is.
The hour-long cook-and-chat-fest debuted in 2011. Its not-entirely-novel concept: a group of culinary minded co-hosts, including Food Network personalities Mario Batali and Michael Symon, Top Chef finalist Carla Hall and The Dorm Room Diet author Daphne Oz, gather to share recipes and gab with fellow co-host Clinton Kelly (What Not to Wear).

Bunim-Murray Productions, the reality-tv company that helped create the genre with “The Real World” and went on to launch one of its most successful franchises with “Keeping Up With the Kardashians,” has set a new executive team. The production company has promoted Jeff Jenkins and Julie Pizzi to co-presidents of entertainment and development. Both execs will continue to report to Bunim-Murray chairman and CEO Gil Goldschein.
The company has also promoted executive producer and showrunner Farnaz Farjam to vice president of current programming and hired producers Erica Ross and Dave Sambuchi as vice presidents of development. The change in structure comes more than one year after company co-founder Jonathan Murray stepped down as the company’s top executive, ceding that role to then-president Goldschein. It also comes during a period of growth for the company, which by the end of 2016 expects to have seen 18 of its shows air across 11 networks.

The signature moment in each episode of Netflix’s Emmy-nominated “Chef’s Table” is no more than a succession of plates. Composer Duncan Thum’s melodramatic strings herald abstractions of texture and color, labeled as if on view at the Met: A rough pile of gray shards and purple flowers spattered with orange liquid (Grant Achatz’s “Graffiti, Carrot Spray Paint, Wild Mushrooms”); a wood husk filled with delicacies in the guise of dirt, twigs, and moss (Dominique Crenn’s “A Walk in the Forest”). Each montage is an expression of the belief that haute cuisine is high art, one shared by the series’ renowned subjects. “There [are] other disciplines that we can draw on for inspiration,” Achatz remarks. “There are no rules. Do whatever you want.”
For a series defined by cuisine that defies convention, however—gold-leafed ants and pillows of nutmeg air, flights of fancy and sleights of hand »

Like a tasting menu of a dozen courses consisting solely of Big Macs, the first, and likely only, season of Feed the Beast has come to an end, leaving us feeling overstuffed and yet still not very satisfied.
On Feed the Beast Season 1 Episode 10, titled "Fire," everyone on the show finally realizes that they all know each other.
Because while the Hell's Kitchen of Marvel's Netflix shows is way larger (and more dangerous) than its real life counterpart, the Bronx of Feed the Beast is apparently home to only about a dozen people who all know each other but don't know they know each other. (Confused yet?)

That sigh of relief you hear across town is from everyone who made it through the first round of the TV Academy’s Emmy voting. Now, the race begins in earnest to claim the small screen’s top trophies. We took a look at 11 key categories to break down the ones to beat, and the threats to watch out for, before voters cast their final ballots beginning Aug. 15.
HBO’s powerhouse “Game of Thrones” is once again the year’s most-nominated series with 23 noms (down only one from last year). It’ll be tough to beat the returning champ. Netflix’s “House of Cards” is second in overall noms for drama, with 13 (including eight for acting). The swan song season for PBS’ “Downton Abbey” nabbed 11, and though there may be some sentimental factor in voting for a series that never won top drama (it triumphed as a miniseries in its first season), don’t bet »

While Twitter has been blowing up with crazy reactions from the Emmy nominees, many of the actors and filmmakers are also sitting back and reflecting on the achievements of their show and everyone involved.

O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story”) and Netflix Chief Content Officer Ted Sarandos all offered some warm thanks to their peers and the people they work with.
