Check, Please! TV Shows Popping Up on PBS Wed, 01/16/13 10:56 PM (permalink)
One of the PBS stations started a TV Show called Check, Please! and it did so well, other PBS stations around the country started picking up on the idea.
The format is pretty simple. There's a host - usually a local food chef or celebrity, and 3 guests at a time for each show, local ordinary people, who submit their favorite restaurant for a review. The people and places are selected by the PBS staff. Those 3 people then eat at each others restaurant choice then come in studio and tape a show and discuss all 3 restaurants. The PBS Camera crews go out and film the food, the restaurants decor, the owners etc. They're all local restaurants, not chains. 
It's a real interesting show if you haven't seen it in your area.
Stations in Phoenix, Seattle, Miami, Chicago, San Francisco, South Fl and others are featuring it.
In AZ, it's now the 2nd most popular show on PBS next to Downton Abby!
If your PBS station isn't doing it yet, contact them and ask them to jump on it.
It's really interesting to watch!
My 3 "Must See" shows are NCIS, Check, Please! and Downton Abby!! (Demand for British butlers has more than doubled recently)
