A new sweet six-part series Spring Baking Championship takes eight superbly talented bakers and has them create their best treats for Mother’s Day, weddings, picnics and other delicious springtime get togethers.

Bobby Deen is back as host and judges Nancy Fuller, Duff Goldman and Lorraine Pascale return as the expert panel of judges for this baking championship, who we saw team up for Holiday Baking Championship.  Whichever baker whips, ices, sprinkles and bakes the best will walk away with $50,000 and the title. Spring Baking Championship premieres Sunday, April 26 at 9 E/P.

What Cutthroat Kitchen lacks in sweetness it makes up in sabotage. But now there’s even more sabotage (yes, hard to believe) with a special series Cutthroat Kitchen: Evilicious. Especially evil former competitors – the ones who were almost too diabolical – return to see who has the skills and stomach to be the most evil. This special five-part tournament premieres Sunday, April 26 at 10 E/P right after Spring Baking Championship. Just think of it like having dessert first and then sabotage for your main dish!

A roster of super talented chefs, who you’ll recognize as former Top Chef , Kitchen Inferno and Iron Chef America competitors, will enter the Chopped kitchen to compete in a special Chopped: All Stars  tournament. We’ve seen these chefs turn out amazing dishes and win culinary battles before but how well will they do with bizarre mystery ingredients and the ticking Chopped clock? The special five-part tournament premieres Tuesday, April 28 at 10 E/P.
