1. Kids Baking Championship

Got Top Chef Jr withdrawal? Duff Goldman and Valerie Bertinelli will return at the top of the year with a new crop of young cooks to fall in love with on Season 4 of Kids Baking Championship on Food Network (premiered January 1).

2. Chopped: Gold Medal Games

3. Worst Cooks in America


Hosted by Tyler Florence and Anne Burrell, the imminent 12th season of Worst Cooks in America on Food Network proves that people love to see flops in the kitchen (premiered January 7).

4. Somebody Feed Phil

Phil Rosenthal created the hit sitcom Everybody Loves Raymond and starred in the 2015 PBS food series I'll Have What Phil's Having. He's now made the epic leap to Netflix for a new documentary series described as a "goodwill eating tour of the world," including stops in Tel Aviv, Lisbon, Mexico City, and Bangkok (premieres January 12). 

5. Bizarre Foods

The new season of Andrew Zimmern's famously provocative series includes eating trips that recreate Napoleon's march in Poland, mosey through the Paul Bunyan Trail in his home state of Minnesota and simulates the diet of the infamous American outlaw Jesse James (premieres January 23).

6. 24 Hours to Hell and Back

Think Kitchen Nightmares on steroids: Gordon Ramsay's next series 24 Hours to Hell & Back challenges the TV chef to fix restaurants up in just a day. The premiere date has yet to be announced, but should be in early 2018.

7. Alton Brown's Untitled Talk Show + Good Eats
