    To be honest, actually might kind of like this show if I didn't already know about a watch Arrested Development, Curb Your Enthusiasm, and Extras. Oh wait, this show sucks my ass and isn't even remotely funny. Some of the poorest writing of the fall season, mostly because it thinks it's clever when it's so painfully obvious that it isn't.

Hard to believe this show even has a 64. I would put it barely above "Freddie." Maybe. Expand

    'Kitchen Confidential" is the kind of new TV show that fits perfectly beside the adjective ''promising." Pilots sometimes strain to set up the entire series, and tonight's episode of ''Confidential" has its share of forced material.

    "Kitchen Confidential" holds more potential than tonight's decent if imperfect start, given Star's track record and casting.

    The biggest problem with Fox's "Kitchen Confidential" is that star Bradley Cooper... is far too appealing to play a bad-boy chef.
