YOUR SPECTACLE FIZZLED: A new quartet of Top Chef Masters, albeit our first without a mega-name chef like Bayliss, Keller or Dufresne in the mix. Still, who needs celebrity chefs when we've got NPH in the house? Well, actually, it would have been nice -- he didn't quite bring the legendary, though he did bring his boyfriend (who, as Dan Fienberg notes, was never identified as such) -- and the cooking was more "gosh, that's kinda neat to look at" than "I really want to eat it and then learn to cook it myself." A surprisingly weak episode, much like a lit coconut shell that never went fully aflame.
