This special, airing over three nights (through Nov. 23), explores the evolution of what we eat and how we eat it, and how eating has defined human civilization. Through more than 50 original interviews with famous chefs, historians, scientists and explorers, the documentary tells the unexpected stories of the trials and tribulations behind every morsel of food on your plate.
Mike (Tim Allen) isn't one for modernization when the old ways -- and items -- are still at hand, so he isn't pleased when Vanessa (Nancy Travis) gets rid of the last incandescent light bulbs he had in the new episode "Changing Light Bulbs." He then takes Chuck (Jonathan Adams) on a hunt for replacements, a difficult mission at best. Mandy (Molly Ephraim) decides to get her own apartment, but doesn't specify one particular reason why.
Heather Anne Campbell -- formerly a writer on "Saturday Night Live" -- is the guest comedian who joins series regulars Wayne Brady, Colin Mochrie and Ryan Stiles in improv games in this new episode. As usual, they take their cues from the studio audience, generating skits and songs made up on the spot. Aisha Tyler is the host.
