Bravo's new reality competition series "Better Half" premieres immediately following the Top Chef 3 Miami finale on Wednesday, October 3 at 11PM ET/PT. Hosted by "Curb Your Enthusiasm" star Susie Essman, this debut series puts a new spin on Bravo's reality competition programs that explore creative professions. In each episode, the spouses/mates of two trained professionals square-off in competition, with the debut episode featuring battling chefs. The professionals have two days to coach their novice partner to take on their jobs and beat the opposing 'better half' in a final challenge. Each week, three judges renowned in the featured line of work will assess how well each couple executed the job handoff. Skilled in managing her own "better half," the outspoken and honest Essman will shadow, needle and critique how the couples listen, learn and love without killing each other first.
