    Adam Richman starts fresh with ‘Food Fighters’

    NBC is taking a chance on Adam Richman. The network is going full steam ahead with Food Fighters, debuting 8 p.m. Tuesday. The Man V Food star, who plays host on the new cooking competition, was extremely polite on a recent conference call, a far cry from last month when Richman engaged with various social media users who opposed the slimmed-down foodie’s use of the hashtag #thinspiration, a pro-eating disorder term. Using expletives to lash out, he even suggested one woman “grab a razor blade and draw a bath.” Travel Channel subsequently shelved another one of his shows, Man Finds Food.
