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.

I've seen the ads and thought maybe. But the recent ads make it seem like some sort of fight club hipster insanity. I am not sure I'll watch unless people say I have to check it out. I'm getting a little over watching people who "believe their own press".
i started recording this show last week. i really like it a lot. WAY more than chopped due to lack of (totally) ridiculous ingredients. IMO its the best of the non-series cooking shows out there right now (because top chef is still the best overall)
