Coming this Sunday

I can't believe it's here already.

Sunday night, at 10pm Eastern on Destination America, Fast Food Mania will make its debut.  To find out if you get the channel, head to Destination America's web site and use their Channel Finder.

I will DVR the Game of Thrones season finale (which, of course, is running ten minutes over until 10:10) and Mad Men so I can watch Fast Food Mania live and tweet along with you.

Our first two episodes are "Cult Favorites" and "Beyond the Bun". "Cult Favorites" includes trips to White Castle, Domino's and Chick-Fil-A, while "Beyond the Bun" has visits to Kentucky Fried Chicken, Whataburger, and Taco Bell. We had a lot of fun making these eps.

Our first season is comprised of ten episodes, so if you don't see your Fast Food favorite - don't worry. There's plenty more to come.

The two newspapers I grew up reading gave me some nice coverage this week - The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette and Newsday. And here's a behind the scenes look at our Nathan's taping from Business Insider.

Destination America has also posted a bunch of Fast Food Mania videos on its You Tube page.  There are a lot of fun extras, including my audition tape at Shake Shack.

The Fast Food Mania hype is in full swing, and I really hope you guys enjoy the show. I had such a good time taping it and learned a lot about the food I love.

Tweet me at @jonmhein and let me know what you think as you watch on Sunday night. I'd love to hear your feedback.

Have a great weekend!


  1. Jon,
    Marlene and I will be watching!!! Congratulations, I knew that all of our trips to McDonalds and White Castle during high school would work out well for one of us. Proud to have helped you mold your career in some small way...
    All the best with the show,

  2. Zweig,
    You are a invaluable part of the early stage research team (i.e. the guys in high school who would accompany me to various drive thrus). Hope you're well and you and Marls enjoy the show.
