Trivia

During a break in shooting, Carrie Preston returned home to New York, arriving on September 10, 2001, less than 24 hours before 9-11. The show resumed production the following week and all flights were grounded, so Preston had to rent a car and literally drive across the country to get back to work. See more »

No BAM! For Your Viewing Pleasure
6 November 2001 | by hillariSee all my reviews

I enjoy watching Emeril Lagasse's cooking shows on the Food Network, but this situation comedy built around him is a misfire. Compliments to the chef: Lagasse appears to be very comfortable acting in front of the camera as opposed to cooking. However, it's as if he's a supporting character on his own show. Lisa Ann Walter (veteran of a failed sitcom herself) and the other two ladies who play characters who assist with the chef's cooking show seem to pull the action right out from under him. I have no idea why Robert Ulrich's agent character is there at all; I guess the writers needed to give Lagasse a male buddy to interact with to counterpoint all of the women he's surrounded by.

His cooking shows on cable are more entertaining than this undercooked offering.
