The Howard Stern of Gallic cuisine

"Subsequent episodes saw an increasing decline in Perlingine’s mental state. He frequently insulted and threatened guests, and on several occasions he struck them. He would drink during the show, and by the end of an episode he was often so tipsy as to be unable to find the stove. But the ratings soared. Perlingine was billed as 'the Howard Stern of Gallic cuisine', and outside the studio the scalpers demanded hundreds of dollars for good seats on days when an unusually resilient or fleet-footed guest was scheduled to appear with their troublesome host."
