Any comments on 'The Sandwich King' first episode?

It aired here in Seattle yesterday AM, but I forgot to record it.
How was it? All in studio, or did he get out and about, as some clips looked like he would...
Some clips of him at a Chicago Beef joint, asking about the recipes. Didn't really like the show, I found it boring. Not enough to fill 1/2 hr (well 20 mins with commercials) with the beef sammich so he made another one. I like him, so I'll given it another chance, but I don't watch those types of shows anyway, I prefer the reality competitions on FN.
I thought his recipes sounded tempting. I might actually try them both. It's amazing how long a half hour is, though. I do think they struggled to find enough content to fill a half hour, even with the visits to the sandwich shop.
I hope he settles in a little. I thought he was trying too hard to be funny in his sandwich shop interviews, and he ended up dominating that conversation.
But, not bad for a first episode.
Wasn't fond. I found it really boring, almost a clone of all the other shows the Food Network seems to be programming these days. Travel to find food, find food, and expect me to care.
