Best Bite in Town

While Guy Fieri's schedule is packed visiting restaurants across the US on Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives, he is calling upon his pal Noah Cappe to help find the Best Bite In Town.

In each episode, Noah assembles a Bite Club, featuring two chefs including Tiffani Faison, Shota Nakajima, Joe Sasto, Aarti Sequeira and Jet Tila.

Together, they explore the local food scene in cities across the country, visiting six of the most popular spots in each one.

After scouring the town and tasting a wide variety of cuisines, Noah and the Bite Club nominate three exceptional dishes to present to a panel of esteemed culinary judges to determine the Best Bite In Town.

Guy has selected restaurants in each city for Noah and his Bite Club to check out.

Once in town, they each choose two spots to visit to see if their dishes are worthy.

From indulging in Banh Mi in Tulsa, Oklahoma, to savouring an authentic sushi experience in Davis, California, and enjoying oysters in Placerville, California, they are on the hunt for the most amazing local dish.

This culinary journey leaves no stone unturned as they also sample tacos in Joplin, Missouri, relish a mouthwatering vegan meal in Paducah, Kentucky, and delight in gourmet pizza in Clarksville, Tennessee.

But they can each only nominate one extraordinary dish for the final showdown, where an expert panel of judges evaluate the three nominated dishes and crown one as the Best Bite In Town.

In the series premiere, "Davis": Guy sends his buddy Noah along with chefs Tiffani Faison and Jet Tila to hit the food scene in Davis, California.

Once in town, they each select two restaurants, trying everything from college hangouts and local pubs to bicycle-friendly eateries and high-end sushi.

After tasting a wide variety of delicious food, they select one dish each to take to a crowd-packed showcase in the Davis city centre, where a panel of Guy's esteemed judges will taste, evaluate and determine which restaurant has the best bite in town.

The Aquarium 2

The Aquarium, which documents life behind-the-scenes of Atlanta's Georgia Aquarium and the vital role it plays in aquatic conservation around the world, returns for a second season.

The series sheds light on the underwater life of fascinating fish, marine mammals and aquatic birds who call the aquarium's 10-million gallons of water home.

Each episode features unique relationships between Aquarium residents and the passionate people dedicated to their care.

A staff of aquarists, biologists and veterinarians work with tens of thousands of animals, both familiar and rare - from piranhas and puffins, to sea turtles and sea dragons.

This season, The Aquarium follows the stories of a sneaky moray eel moving from one habitat to another, a giant sea turtle named Tank who needs to learn healthier eating habits, and the adventures of baby fantail rays Bacon and Tomato, as they adjust to life in the massive Ocean Voyager exhibit.

You can also catch up with rescued baby sea otter Gibson, as he learns to become a more independent pup.

And this season, the adventures continue off the coast of Florida, as camera crews follow Georgia Aquarium biologists under the nighttime waves, to film a rare and wondrous event few have ever witnessed: the spawning of critically endangered corals.
