"Food Network Doesn't Have a News Show." But a Dallas Woman Could Be Its Next "Star."
Breaking news for the Liz Lemons of the world, or at least the 30 Rock viewers who get the headline: Food Network today announced the 10 peeps competing for the title of The Next Food Network Star, and one of them's a local -- name of Lisa Garza. The series -- now in its fourth season, really? -- bows June 1, with the winner revealed on July 27. I seem to recall last season's "star" looked a lot like Margot Kidder; did she actually get a show, or were those ads just a fake-out? No doubt, the fact I have to ask is why Food Network's planning on giving this season's winner a six-episode series debuting in August. So, ya know, get to work, Lisa Garza. --Robert Wilonsky
