Mix "Iron Chef" with "Family Feud" and you've got "My Momma Throws Down" (8 tonight, TV One), a cooking competition show that pits everyday moms against one another. It makes for a tasty little show.
Hosted by comic/actor Ralph Harris, the show features two moms, nominated by a family member, competing in red or blue aprons and making a surprise dish, albeit one that might be found at any kitchen table. (In the first episode, it's squash casserole.) Judges taste the meal to anoint the top momma; on the first panel is noted food historian Jessica B. Harris and the sister trio from the fabulous 2000-2004 TV show "Soul Food"-- Vanessa Williams, Malinda Williams and Nicole Ari Parker.
