Tonight: Check, Please! Airs Later Than Scheduled

I just got word that Check, Please! -- the new Valley-centric food review show hosted by Renegade Canteen chef and James Beard Award-winner Robert McGrath -- will not air at its regularly scheduled time tonight, in order for PBS Channel 8 to cover President Obama's visit to Tucson.

Tonight's episode, which features Cibo Urban Wine Cafe & Pizzeria, The Rusty Spur, and House of Tricks, will air at 8 p.m. instead of 7:30.

Yeah, I've seen two episodes thus far, and I have to say Zzzzzzzzzz...... McGrath's a gregarious guy with a great sense of humor. Loose his reins. Let him gab with his gifts at these restaurants on location, among his industry peers in their more natural habitat, rather than on that stilted set. Culinary Marlborough Man McGrath should be out communing with the foodie folk. Unless and until those responsible for putting this show on the air get that, I don't think many viewers will acquire a taste for it.

it's still boring - the show desperately needs a soundtrack.
