FOOD NETWORK HELPS VIEWERS AVERT TURKEY-DAY DISASTERS

FIRST-EVER, TWO-HOUR, INTERACTIVE "THANKSGIVING LIVE!" SPECIAL

Hosted by Alton Brown and Featuring Bobby Flay, Rachael Ray and More 'Thanksgiving Live!' Airs Sunday, November 20th from NOON-2pm ET Viewers Submit Questions Live via Facebook, Twitter and Skype

NEW YORK - October 17, 2011 - Home cooks - and their Thanksgiving dinner guests - have another reason to be thankful this year! The experts at Food Network come together to answer viewers toughest questions about holiday meal-making on Thanksgiving Live!, a two-hour, interactive show hosted by famed Turkey-master Alton Brown, airing Sunday, November 20 from 12 pm to 2 pm EST/PST (west coast airing will be taped). On hand to address perennial problems from dry turkey to lumpy gravy, as well as demonstrate helpful tips and delicious recipes will be Ted Allen, Sunny Anderson, Anne Burrell, Melissa d'Arabian, Bobby Flay, Alex Guarnaschelli and Rachael Ray.

"Thanksgiving Live! is a unique opportunity for home cooks to get expert holiday meal preparation advice from the television chefs they love and trust on the Sunday before the big day," said Bob Tuschman, General Manager and Senior Vice President of Food Network. "We're excited to offer this one-of-a-kind television experience, in addition to our other media platforms, to make Food Network the go-to resource for Thanksgiving food programming and instruction."

In this first-ever Food Network live event, Alton will field viewers' Thanksgiving meal preparation questions and refer them to an all-star cast of celebrity chefs. Viewers will not only have the opportunity to submit questions ahead of time via Facebook (http://www.facebook.com/foodnetwork), Twitter (http://www.twiter.com/foodnetwork, use #FNThanksgiving) but can also simultaneously submit questions during the broadcast. Skype submissions (Username: FoodNetworkThanksgiving) will be exclusive to the two-hour broadcast.

As a side dish to the on-air broadcast, the network's website (www.foodnetwork.com) will serve up a three-hour Thanksgiving Live webcast. Starting a half-hour before airtime, the site will stream a preshow featuring celebrity chef interviews and behind-the-scenes footage of Alton and the cast preparing for the live television event. During the show, viewers can participate in a unique, co-viewing social experience implemented on FoodNetwork.com, Facebook.com/FoodNetwork and Livestream.com/FoodNetwork. A mix of real-time conversation including video, photos, Facebook and Twitter posts, all seamlessly integrated into the live video stream, it will allow chefs and viewers to share tips, recipes and commentary. After the on-air broadcast concludes as the cast sit down to enjoy the Thanksgiving feast they prepared during the show, the online streaming video will continue with post-show coverage. Each guest will contribute a signature dish, covering everything from starters to desserts - and Alton Brown will carve the turkey!
