Knife Fight on Esquire TV
I'm surprised nobody's commented on this show. Yes, it's yet *another* cooking competition and, from what I can tell so far, incredibly LA-centered.
That said, it does without the cheese & camp of ICA, supplies quality ingredients as opposed to Chopped, and the judges don't mince their words (pun intended).
It seems a bit heavy on the hipster cred, but I suppose that's a given these days.
