Back in the Saddle: Emeril's New Cooktainment Show

From Celebrity guests, musical performances and audience interaction will be among the main ingredients of Emeril Lagasse’s new cooking show for Ion Television, the 3-year-old entertainment network affiliated with WPXL (Channel 49) in New Orleans.

“The Emeril Lagasse Show” will air Sundays at 7 p.m. starting April 18. The housewarming party-themed premiere will feature fellow talk-show host and business partner Martha Stewart. Singer Michelle Williams, formerly of Destiny’s Child, also will appear and sing “Roxie” from her hit show “Chicago.”

Every episode of the cooking/variety show will have a theme, Ion says. Future guests will include native son and New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning (as part of a “Sports Night” tailgating party episode); another New Orleanian, actor Bryan Batt (“Blasts From the Past”); Food Network chef Mario Batali (“Italian Chowdown”); Sammy Hagar (Emeril’s Fiesta); Steve Schirippa from “The Sopranos” (“Guys Night”); Jennie Garth and the country band Lonestar (“Emeril’s Heartland”); CNBC anchor Maria “Money Honey” Bartiromo (“BAM for your Buck”); and Tim Gunn and former “American Idol” finalist Bo Bice (“Do It Yourself”).

Further emphasizing the variety-show trappings, Lagasse will have a house band, Dave Koz and the Kozmos. Audience members will be invited to cook on stage and compete to win prizes in “The Big Bam Box.”
