Emeril to co-host new TNT cooking competition, On The Menu 

  Six degrees once may have separated Emeril Lagasse from Denny's, but a new TNT show will allow the two to work arm-in-arm.

  Lagasse signed on to co-host — along with home improvement hunk Ty Pennington — a cooking show called On the Menu. The program will feature everyday cooks vying for the chance to have their dishes served in restaurants across the country.

  After each restaurant-tied episode, viewers will be able to go to the restaurant the next day to sample the winning dish. The featured restaurants include Denny's, Outback Steakhouse, Chili's, California Pizza Kitchen and, yes, Emeril's New Orleans. The winning dish from the Oct. 31 episode will be featured on Emeril's menu.

  The show will follow a set of dramatic "elimination challenges," with Pennington serving as emcee and Lagasse weighing in with culinary knowledge.

  The show premieres at 7 p.m. Friday, Oct. 3, on TNT.
