STUDIO CITY—It doesn't officially open until Monday (5/18), but the Counter has been holding some soft opening trial runs in the last few days, and per a source, Steve Carrell already talked his way to the preview lunch at 12117 Ventura yesterday. [EaterWire]

LAS VEGAS—Earlier this week, Tyler Florence announced (and then deleted) a Twitter update about how he's going to be a judge on Top Chef Vegas, and now Penn Jillette has done the same on Twitter (including the deleting part): "Tomorrow we spend all day shooting "Top Chef". Man, lots of people love this show. We are judges. We get to eat rabbit and dove." [Twitter]

TELEVISION——You may have thought that the Obama Garden was move in the right direction for America, but a segment on last night's Daily Show reveals that Alice Waters is dead wrong. Says one anti-garden vigilante: "It's irresponsible to tell people to only eat organic and locally grown food...People are going to eat fewer fruits and vegetables. Cancer rates will go up. Obesity rate will go up...we're going to have a lot of starvation." The more responsible solution, of course, is to urge America to be more efficient and use pesticides. [~ENY~]
