Symon will try to make "Dinner: Impossible" possible

Here's a follow-up to an earlier post about Food Network's 3rd highest rated show, Dinner: Impossible, being called done by yours truly. A press release from the cable channel came out last week with the news that Michael Symon, the winner of last year's Next Iron Chef America show, will take over for the deposed Robert Irvine.

Other tidbits about the show were that the actual content will stay the same with the actual show length will grow from 30 minute to an hour. Symon is based out of Cleveland and the people from his two restaurants, Lola and Lolita, will tag along with the chef to the challenges that he is presented with on the show.

I'm not sure if how the show will translate with the new host. From what I have seen of Symon on Iron Chef America and the Next Iron Chef America, he doesn't seem as outlandish or as gregarious as Irvine, who made the show a little more watchable and entertaining if for nothing else other than his very British accent. I'll tune in to see the first episode but I have a feeling that I won't come back.
