I got addicted to Come Dine With Me while living in England. It's a show about amateur chefs who host a dinner party. At the end of the evening the person is given points from 1 to 10 on their dinner party hosting skills and food. The person with the most points win. The winner gets a £1,000 prize.
The show is now on BBC America on Tuesdays at 10pm Eastern 9pm Central. It is very different than the show I watched in England. When I watched it back then it was on for 30 minutes 5 days a week. Now, it's on for an hour and there are only 4 contestants instead of 5. I still like the show,but when it was on 5 nights you got to get to know the contestants better, see more of the meal prep and check out their houses. Now, you see very little meal prep, they usually just let you see the other contestants wander around one person's home and you really don't get to know them as well as you would if you had an half hour with each contestant. The only thing that has really remained the same is the voice-over man Dave Lamb. He is funny, sarcastic and can be mean sometimes, but the show would not be the same without him.
Still one of the best shows on TV.
