I like the idea of the show but the questions they put in the press release seem kind of lame. "Does it really take seven years for gum to digest in your stomach?" "Can an “apple a day” really keep the doctor away?" Viewers will be able to submit their own questions to the show. I'm not aware of Ted Allen having a science background, but he will be helped by the folks at Popular Science magazine.
Let's hope he has a better fact-checker than Alton Brown!
