The veteran celebrity chef is following in Rachael Ray's footsteps to host a talk show of his own. The Emeril Lagasse Show, as it'll be called, will air Sundays at 8 p.m., beginning March 28 on the ION Television Network. According to ION, the show, which will be filmed in New York City in front of a live studio audience, will "capture Emeril's passion for people, entertainment, music, food and celebration."
Considering I hardly know what the ION network is — and the fact that I can think of a few other shows I'd rather be watching — I'm not sure about the potential of Emeril's new gig. Do you think it will take off?
