Channel Surfing: Awesome TV picks for the week of 02/01/2021

A new cooking competition, another Snoopy animated show, and the Super Bowl.

We have quite a mix with our Channel Surfing TV picks of the week. Three renowned chefs put their own slant on some culinary favorites in Fast Foodies. You can’t find these high-end comfort foods at the drive-through. The cherished dog from Charles M. Schulz’s Peanuts has a new show appropriately titled, The Snoopy Show. However, mostly everything on TV will be trumped when it comes to viewers when the NFL presents the Super Bowl this weekend.

High End Fast Food

Top Chef is arguably the gold standard for culinary based reality competitions. The series boasts numerous alumni who have made a mark in their field of food but fewer have repeated the same success on television. Three previous contestants are the stars of a new show that is coming out this week.

Listen to the latest episode of the AIPT Television podcast!

Kristen Kish, Jeremy Ford, and Justin Sutherland star in Fast Foodies. It’s a different type of cooking challenge where the three chefs invite a celebrity and attempt to recreate and elevate their guest’s favorite fast food item. The three leads will cook double burgers to Hawaiian pizza for the likes of Joel McHale, James Van Der Beek, and more in order to earn the “Chompionship Trophy”.  

Fast Foodies premieres this Thursday, February 4, on TruTV.

A Classic for a New Generation

Charlie Brown, Snoopy, and the rest of their friends have been entertaining people for over 50 years. It first began with comic strips and then expanded to other mediums including film, music, theater, and television. Last fall, Apple TV+ became the home for new original shows and specials featuring the Peanuts gang.

Arriving this Friday, February 5, is The Snoopy Show. This new animated series is family friendly and will focus on the beloved beagle and his feathered companion, Woodstock, as they set out on adventures. Snoopy will not only be himself but also assume the roles of his recognizable alter egos including a daring WWI flying ace, Joe Cool, and Masked Marvel. Prepare to be charmed all over again by these classic characters.

The Mother of All Games

The spectacle of the Super Bowl is more than the championship game for the NFL. The commercials that fill in the breaks generate watercooler buzz. Then the halftime show has sparked some of the most memorable musical performances. How could you forget Prince covering Foo Fighters in a downpour? Beyonce rocked so hard she literally blew the power out of the building. This year, The Weeknd is the guest performer and he even put up $7 million of his own money to ensure that the show matches his vision.

The game itself shouldn’t be too bad either. Though it’s not the Ravens/Saints match up I hope for every year, there are some interesting storylines. Tom Brady reaches his tenth Super Bowl and can earn his record seventh ring. His first with a new team. He faces off with the ascending Patrick Mahomes who is looking to repeat as champion.

Catch the clash between the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the Kansas City Chiefs this Sunday, February 7, on CBS.
