rsz_jean-christophe-novelli.jpgOver at the Onion's AV Club, Todd VanDerWerff has posted an early reaction to last night's premiere of Bravo's latest, and argues that dreamy chef/host Jean Christophe Novelli is not as mind-numbingly boring as other outlets have lamented. Instead, he’s just...chill: "Whether he's providing education to the chefs or plucking a hair out of one of their dishes or waxing rhapsodic about Peter Falk, he's not your usual presence at the center of one of these shows, proving more laid back than angry about everything."
