Kevin Bacon has given Fox some of its best ratings news in months. Bacon's gory new serial-killer drama "The Following" slashed its way to 10.4 million total viewers in its Monday premiere, according to Nielsen. That placed "The Following" solidly among TV's highest-rated new dramas this season. NBC's post-apocalyptic "Revolution" (11.6 million for the premiere) and CBS' Sherlock Holmes update "Elementary" (13.4 million) drew somewhat larger total audiences, but Bacon's show actually tied "Elementary" among young adults.

In Fox's bloody new drama "The Following," Kevin Bacon plays one of the more oft-used characters in thriller fiction. Alcoholic and emotionally detached, his character is former FBI agent Ryan Hardy, who has never quite recovered from his dance with the devil. Once upon a time, Hardy was the lead agent on a string of grisly murders at the fictional Winslow College. When he first encountered Joe Carroll (James Purefoy), he too fell under the charismatic English professor's spell, using him as a source to help unravel the literary clues left at the crime scenes.

You never, ever, have to complain about not having something to cook again. Really. You know how seriously we have always taken our recipes at the Times Food section -- testing and re-testing to get everything right. We love them all. But some, we have to confess, we love more than others. And every year since 1985 we've collected the very best recipes in a year-end compilation ( here's this year's ). Until today, it had been hard to find many of them -- there was no room to display them on the website and many of them were hidden away in different databases.

This story has been updated. See information below. More than 150 years after his death, Edgar Allan Poe can boast a superfluous achievement: He is one degree away from Kevin Bacon. Sort of. In Fox's new psychological thriller "The Following," the 54-year-old Center of the Hollywood Universe plays a former FBI agent dispatched to track down a professor-of-literature-turned-Poe-inspired-serial-killer (James Purefoy) who has escaped from prison and recruited an army of murderous disciples via the Internet.

In the TV food show arena, bacon is the new black. California chef Todd Fisher, an unapologetic bacon buff, has declared that bacon has moved off the breakfast table and on to the unlikeliest of places: in cocktails, desserts and more traditional entrees like pizza. The growing variety of outrageous bacon creations in restaurants around the country in recent years has landed him in hog heaven. Now Fisher will get a chance to indulge his love for all things bacon in "The United States of Bacon," a new series on Discovery's Destination America that airs on Sundays and debuted this week.

Seattle is a beacon for travelers who dream of the Space Needle or a trip to Safeco Field or Pike Place Market, a gathering spot for coffee drinkers and cyclists and tree-huggers. It is not, however, a city that coasts on its reputation for superb lodging. Yes, you'll find a Four Seasons and a W and the high-tech Hotel 1000 , but what about rooms for the merely mortal? My husband, Steve, and I flew to Seattle at the end of November to begin a short trip through the Pacific Northwest.

There's a two-in-three chance that the winner of "The Next Iron Chef" will be a woman. Cause to celebrate? Chefs Amanda Freitag and Alex Guarnaschelli are now duking it out with pitbull chef Nate Appleman for the Season 5 title of "Next Iron Chef" and a shot at sweet, sweet redemption. Ousted this week was Marcel Vigneron, who no doubt earned some redemption of his own after being bounced from that other competition ("Top Chef"). Like a challenge thrown down by the chairman himself, Marcel transformed from a foam-enthralled kitchen cut-up into a thoughtful chef who no longer stands as sidekick to Spike Mendelsohn or anyone else.

What could be better than a Vegas buffet with all the seafood, prime rib and dessert your heart could desire? An entire bacon buffet, of course. On Sunday night's "Next Iron Chef," the remaining four chefs were asked to create a bacon Vegas buffet for the chairman's challenge of transcendence. What I would have given to be a judge! The chefs were divided into two teams: Nate Appleman and Amanda Freitag on one, and Marcel Vigneron and Alex Guarnaschelli on the other, and given two hours to cook for 30 people.
