Food guy's new show debut postponed
Best known as the host of the Travel Channel’s “Man vs. Food,” Adam Richman has been working on a new show for the network, “Man Finds Food.” The new series was set to debut today, but has been postponed with no details of a later air date. The newly slimmed-down host recently got into it with folks on Instagram after he used the tag “#thinspiration,” not realizing that is a controversial phrase synonymous with those who are in favor of eating disorders. According to the Washington Post, Richman went on an expletive-filled rant against the commentators. The Travel Channel did not give a reason for postponing the debut of “Man Finds Food,” but according to TMZ, NBC will debut another of Richman’s shows “Food Fighters” later this month.
