I love me some cooking competitions – and that includes ones like tonight’s new Buddy vs. Duff on Food Network. Buddy Valastro (the Cake Boss) and Duff Goldman (the Ace of Cakes) are both elite bakers, and in this new series, they face off in a baking battle for the chance to be crowned the undisputed king of cheeses – oh, no, that’s Parmigiano-Reggiano. They’re competing to be crowned the undisputed kind of cake. There are two rounds in each episode, like most cooking competitions of this vein, and they’ll be judged by renowned chefs Sherry Yard and Keegan Gerhard, as well as a rotating cast of guest experts, such as Hannah Hart, Aarti Sequeira, Penn & Teller, Florian Bellanger, and many more.

On tonight’s episode, “The Battle Begins,” in the first of six bake-off challenges, Buddy Valastro and Duff Goldman must make their most beloved family recipes; the chefs create car-inspired birthday cakes for celebrity gearhead Richard Rawlings.

See who…takes the cake on tonight’s premiere on Food Network at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Family Food Showdown & Private Eyes.

Last week on Shameless, we saw the end of Carl’s relationship get the official backstabbing end at the same time we saw the possibly good ending for Fiona start to reveal itself. Deb tried to hook up with Carl’s ex and was rejected, pushing her into an awkward space with both him and her. Carl was ready to do something dumb but let it go after they talked it out. Poor Carl also found out he was rejected from West Point, but now it seems that may be for the worse. At least his manager at work seems to have some weird Cougar crush on him that may not pan out till next year.

Lip is in a limbo of sorts with his new pregnant girlfriend. On the one hand she says she is not sure if she’s having the baby and tells him to sod off about it. On the other, Lip’s sincere interest in being a good father for his kid seems to be enough for Tami so far. They may really wind up a family in next season. Which will of course be a season without Fi, the backbone of the family and show for nine years. Fiona has crashed and burned hard the last 6 episodes. It almost looked like her exit was going to be tragic, not triumphant, but the close of last week’s episode suggests an actual happy ending is possible. (That was not a shot at Trumpov, his kids. and 30 other GOP power players having their selfies with the Chinese American Madame who just got busted in Florida exposed on Twitter, swear.)

Basically, Max, the real estate guy Fi got into that huge deal with, walked into the gas station she’s been working at for minimum wage on midnight shifts. He seems to feel bad for her and decides to make her an amazing-ish offer. Even though the deal may not pan out for a year, he decides to buy her out of her share in it, which means this week she’ll have one-hundred-thousand dollars in hand. What on earth will she do with it?!?!? I will be sad to see her go, but I personally can’t wait to see what she does. The creators have stated the option will be there for Fi to make guest appearances in the future seasons, but Emmy Rossum is on to other roles, and you know we’re all ready for her to make a big splash on the silver screen, amirite?!?!

On tonight’s episode, “Found,” as the Gallaghers decide what to do with a bedridden Frank, Fiona has to make a decision about her future; Carl and Debbie share their heartbreak together; Lip has to deal with a distressed Tami.

To see what decision Fiona makes, tune in to Showtime at 9/8c.

I’ll also be tuning in for episodes of America’s Lost Vikings, Bob’s Burgers, Black Monday, the latest informative hilarity on Last Week Tonight with John Oliver, Supergirl, and the finale of Star Wars Resistance, which admittedly got more bearable as the season played out.
