"Now Eat This! with Rocco DiSpirito" is chef Rocco DiSpirito's new E/I show, dedicated to helping teens and families eat better, and live healthier lives, without sacrificing flavor.

Each 30-minute episode is focused on an individual, or a family, and their issues related to food and health. Examples include guests and families struggling with weight issues; trying to feed budding athletes; eating right on a budget; fighting serious health issues like diabetes; simply desiring to live a healthier life. Through the course of each episode, Rocco teaches the guest(s) and viewers important information about food and nutrition, guiding them to make better choices with the food they eat. In the process, they'll learn to cook, Rocco style. Fun and entertaining, and loaded with valuable takeaway information. Each episode ends with a renewed sense of purpose, and a commitment to change for the better.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. Animal Atlas continues its long series life by using technology to consistently improve the essential visual component of the episodes. The high definition video of the arresting animals and animal elements is well used to engage viewers and lead them through a sequence of valued and meaningful insights. One of the series strengths continues to be that it does not just present a list of animal facts but links a wide variety of information into sequences that make knowledge of the animal kingdom both simpler and easier to remember. The interstitial quizzes have become not just summaries of previous information but a lead-in to the next organized sequence of information. The tone of credited narrator Eric Schwartz is perfect for the target group of 13-16 year-olds. It is non-professorial and faux flip-again, ideal for the target mindset of selfconfident adolescence. Yet the vocabulary is rich. It presumes the understanding of the words like "behemoth" and "adaptation" but gives enough context to add that word to young viewers' vocabulary without getting pedantic. Great information in a rich visual context
