​Michelle Bernstein returns to host Check, Please!, the popular WPBT program where everybody is a critic. There will be an updated graphic opening, a revamped logo, new theme music (I can't remember the last theme song), and most importantly, new restaurants to critique.

This season's guest reviewers include a South Beach model, a Palm Beach financier, a golf caddy from Hollywood and Miss Finesse, a local female impersonator. Insert your own punchline.

So season seven begins Monday, January 23 at 7:30 p.m.; episodes repeat same time on Wednesdays and at 5:30 each Saturday.

Keep Miami New Times Free... Since we started Miami New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Miami, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
