Mario, Gwyneth, Spain

As noted by the Mothership, the new 'Mario Batali and Gwyneth Paltrow Does Spain' show (official title: Spain...On the Road Again) premiered on PBS last night (in NY; airs in LA area this Tuesday and Thursday), and while "it's nice to look at," they found it a bit of a snoozer. Even Mario agrees: “My worry is, how many times can you watch me eating something and saying, ‘Boy, that’s good,’...That there’s no real payoff for the customer other than saying, ‘Hey, they’re having a great time, this is a great show.’ The blogs that hate it are gonna be like, ‘Who the fuck cares that he’s eating with Gwyneth Paltrow, she’s a vegan anyway,’ or whatever..." It will probably still be a hit, and they are indeed considering Italy for the next TV road trip. [ENY; NY Mag]
