Bravo (Wednesdays, 10 p.m. ET)
Bravo’s cooking competition is Project Runway in the kitchen. You have that same buzz of creative energy, but with the flash of knives instead of scissors. On the Oct. 18 opener (11 p.m. ET), the chefs are commanded to whip up something edible from frog legs, chicken livers and peanut butter. The next week, an ethical crisis erupts over a misappropriated crate of lychees. It’s an amuse bouche—yum.
