  1. Some of those are questionable "highlights," such as Dean McDermott hosting a show.

  2. I wonder if there will be any way to get Chopped Canada in the States. I love Susur Lee and Chuck Hughes and wish I could see the programs.

  3. Was planning to avoid R v. G like the plague, but with Lee Anne Wong judging, I may have to force myself to watch.

  4. These are the programming highlights for the US. So, Chopped Canada is going to be on in the US, premiering Jan. 9th.

  5. I'm still giggling that of all women to cheat with, he picked the one named "Goodhand."

  6. RVG hasn't been any good without Lou Diamond Phillips. I started watching season one reluctantly, and ended up staying because I became a passionate LDP fan.

    And I'm STILL not seeing Next Iron Chef! It's the FN event I look forward to most every year.

  7. The season three premiere for Rachel Vs Guy is available on Comcast On Demand. I watched it last night. I'm rooting for Vanilla Ice this season.

  8. It's on Charter On Demand too.

  9. Okay, now that I've watched it, I think either Herschel or Penn is the one to beat.

  10. If no one cycles out of TNIC, do they need to hold a competition to add someone, though?

  11. Guest, Forgive me for my ignorance of this Social network time that we live in. You have said things I did not realize. I am humbled. I come from a world when, people spoke they're mind, they told you who they were and what they believed. I always assumed, (although I was wrong) because I signed my name, TD Riggs, to these message boards...people knew who I was. At least my name and where I lived. They could still call me out.
    With that said...I still think the FN has become stale. I do not know how to fix it. I love them...but I hate them.

  12. Thanks, Annie. I think I see what you mean...If you're happy with who you are watching and they can teach you something new, regardless of your Culinary skills, they have done their job. Cool. I can still learn things at my age. Have a wonderful New year. The best to you and yours.

  13. And you, too. Happy New Year!

  14. The fix is simple. More cooking, less reality TV.

  15. That's my problem with the show. How many Iron Chefs do you need? It's overstuffed amd bloated. Next IC feels cheapened because of it.

  16. So, the Kitchen is basically The Chew w/o the studio audience?

  17. Soooooo tired of Guy.

  18. And without current topics

  19. I'm loathe to admit how much I like it but The Chew is pretty good. I never liked Symon until I saw him on the show and was won over with his personality; Clinton Kelly is a crowd-pleasing natural; Carla Hall, the same, I just adore her; and Batali is, well, Batali, an Italian Pepin who can make a regular person feel like a gourmand no matter what he is telling you to do.

    I hate admitting that I tune in but I really enjoy their banter and oftentimes their recipes leave me craving. Even when they do stupid stuff, I am at least laughing because they seem so in on the joke.

  20. And without people I want to watch.

  21. There is no need to apologize for liking The Chew; it's a darn good show. Besides, I'll watch Carla Hall in almost anything.

  22. Carla is the bomb. She is just such a natural. You watch Spike and Marcel try to force themselves into personalities (FN did a Next IronChef marathon today, before I switched to Breaking Bad) and it's just such a "no." You either are or you are not. Carla is proof of that. She doesn't for a second come across as manufactured.

  23. I think you're right. I just really like Vanilla Ice; I like that he's a vegetarian and that he named his dish after the Ninja Turtles. :)

  24. I like a philly cheesesteak dip w/au jus and a cold beer. Much better than artichokes.

  25. Silver Spring is what I'd call my hometown. I've watched it fall and rise several times, but the current comeback seems to be taking; it just needs to go further.

  26. I used to live at Flower and Kennebec. If you ever want terrific food, hit up El Golfo. Damn, I miss that place.

  27. Thanks for the heads up. Watched it last night and immediately wanted to send Chris Kattan into the abyss with sharp objects. He was uncomfortable to watch. I even felt bad for Guy.

  28. hallelujah! Ina Garten new it.

  29. Au jus is a prepositional phrase meaning "with juice," not a noun. Jus is the noun. I wish so-called professional chefs would stop saying "with au jus."

    Also "with con queso."

  30. I wish they'd quit saying serve up, stir up, fry up...up up and away. You're just serving, just stirring, just frying, etc.--it makes as much sense to say serve up as to say serve down, serve sideways...drives me nuts.

  31. Or at least cooking competitions like Food Network Challenge.

  32. I wonder if some of Paula's problem was her being over exposed, allegedly making food that caused diabetes and then her lawsuit. I liked her but it got old.

    I like Guy too but I am getting tired of him, I watch some of the new DDD and his Rachel vs Guys shows but don't really need more of him. I guess he's FN's answer to Duck Dynasty- take that as you will. LOL

  33. I don't really like "Grandma's Ravioli" or whatever but I love Mo Rocca!

  34. Awww, I lived there for college. On what used to be called "Jefferson Davis Highway and 23rd Street." Went back and lived in Takoma to work for W. That's such a great area if you love good food - it's not called International Crossroads for nothing. Boy, I envy you. I wish I'd never left :)

  35. MoHub, that is so awesome. I hope she knows how many regular people she inspires :)

  36. Born in DC; raised and still living in the Maryland 'burbs. And I actually like Spike when he isn't playing poseur for the TV cameras.

  37. I've met Carla on several occasions, and I can tell you that everything you see is real. She's a total natural.

  38. At least she'd be putting that tongue to good use!

  39. I should add, though, I am biased because I am a former D.C.-er. Though then again, that should have worked in Spike's favor and it doesn't....

  40. W-D, Yea, I too have cut back on my viewership regarding FN. I have always liked what they are trying to provide to us.(Viewers) Educate us...Show us how to make a great meal, but don't make it a drama to keep us as your viewers.
    I do like shows like R-I...they have informed me about what goes on owning a restaurant...and not just working in one...I just do not like the extra Yelling that goes on. I think you're right about Robert sitting down with the Owners and discussing what needs to be done. Constructive information. Thank goodness I do not have to program TV shows.

  41. Hey Food Network, If you are reading these comments please take note of which 3 have the highest numbers of thumbs-up & +'s. "Nuff said.

  42. Dinner: Impossible reruns are being shown on Cooking Channel.

  43. Right there with you, Ugh, talk about overexposure!

  44. omg! In all seriousness, would you say that to a restaurant mgr. if you saw "w/au jus" on any menu? The public gets the meaning. They don't care about technicalities or prepositional phrases. Talk about hyper-nitpicking. You sound like you've got a severe case of OCD. You are making yourself look like the world's most persnickety grammar-cop when others see you post like this. I can't help wondering if you have corrected people's grammar on a first date. Nothing I'd be proud of. I'm not a professional chef.

  45. What I have a case of is 12 hard-fought years studying French. You would never say you had a hamburger "with with ketchup," and it behooves professional chefs to know the vocabulary of their trade.

    And I happen to be a professional grammar hammer and let a hell of a lot go. But if there are tools to your trade, you should be able to use them correctly. You wouldn't use a hammer when the job calls for a saw.

  46. Ugh. No way. I can't stand his whiny voice. You can have him.

  47. Maybe they just need to give Guy his own network, and then we can ignore it entirely.

  48. Ugh i actually like Guy's Grocery Games, but reallyy the host could be interchangeable and i would love it more if it werent Guy Fieri in it and the redundancy of his so called delay of explaining the twist of each challenge. He is way overdone. Just because he branched out and became a host for Minute to Win It, doesnt mean he deserves more air time on FN, but if production wants to milk whatever left they can out of that cow then so be it, the sad thing is unless he has some scandal then i do see him and his sons as the next Deens...
    I wish FN would look back on their roots and think more of the modern instead of trying so hard. And instead of repeating these family style type shows... So many of their classic shows had success for a reason and they also had success before with alternative/modern type shows like Ace of Cakes (then Cake Boss had a similar format that took over the audiences)... I am personally offended that they never assigned Justin a show before getting Damaris her rather disappointment of a show. And then i also feel they should show more Aarti because she is interesting but they never repeat her for some reason.

  49. Damaris is very skilled. They could put her on without any guests at all and we could still learn lots of things from her. I like her show and she is real. I heard that Justin had a falling out with Alton somehow but I haven't been able to track down any details so I'm not sure. Very few people would recreate the odd dishes that Justin made.

  50. Ewww. Unwrapped is the ultimate waste of time trivia show. I could care less how M&M's are made. Total "filler"

  51. Why is Alton even here anymore? Seriously. He isn't cooking anymore. He tries to take over and run everything whenever he's on with other chefs. He won't stop with his relentless yapping commentary. I think his Cutthroat Kitchen is just a chance for him to play Dungeon Master (ala Dungeons & Dragons game) in the kitchen. He is a knowlegeable but too much of a ham. I wonder how much of his knowledge was really reading off of cue-cards from the researchers he has behind him. If people aren't cooking, why are they here? It's sad that he has gone from cooking to more reality tv.

  52. Well, I couldn't care less about trivia shows either. I thought at least Unwrapped was informative and not "filler" with D-list celebrities trying to cook and yell over each other. To each their own.

  53. I think we need more Sandra Lee, too. (<--sarcasm)

  54. When will they learn that less Guy Fieri is better, although i actually do like Grocery Games even if its pretty much Chopped in a Grocery Market setting.. that show doesnt really need Guy to host it for it to be great though so yes less Guy Fieri is better for all our healths and better for his ego!

  55. When I am flipping channels, and I see him, I'm in a hurry to change channels, I am *so* tired of him and that mouth I could scream....I like Food Network, but enough already!!!!!

  56. That's not being very nice to Duck Dynasty.

  57. They at least were not douchy. And they were fun.

  58. Too late. Anne Burrell got a pink mohawk.

  59. I miss Challenge!

  60. I have to agree with what you said. There was one place Guy went to (forget the name at the moment) and I wanted to try the place because it is one of the few places he went that actually caters to both meat lovers and vegetarians. I wish Guy and other shows like his would actually go to places that caters to all not just one.

  61. I LOVE Cutthroat Kitchen! That's currently my favourite show on the Food Network.

    I'll be interested in the new season of Chopped, seeing two groups using the same basket ingredients. I also like Rachael Vs. Guy and Chopped Canada. And I'm looking forward to seeing more from Food Court Wars; I hope this show is stronger in season two.

    I'm not around for daytime, but I DVR The Kitchen. I watch Sandwich King sometimes; I just love how Jeff Mauro is with his kids!

    I may watch Worst Cooks In America.

    I have no desire to see Buy This Restaurant or Mystery Diners. I think Restaurant Impossible has jumped the shark.

    And "New Season of 'Triple D' Among Food Network's February Highlights"?! Seriously?!

  62. I've never seen The Chew, but I like The Kitchen. I think the show started out clunky but is coming along well.

  63. When I am flipping channels, and I see him, I'm in a hurry to change channels, I am *so* tired of him and that mouth I could scream....I like Food Network, but enough already!!!!!

  64. Guy Fieri is a douche. I checked what was playing on FN today and it's like 2pm to 4am of non stop doucheness :(

  65. Guy Fieri is a douche. Couple days ago I saw it was like 2pm to 4am next day non stop with him. Than later on the day there would be more of him. Ugh enough of him already :(

  66. GUY, "Chicken, chicken, not a winner", same stupid shtick every show. And he thinks he's funny. What's next "Triple M, N, P". If I want game shows there are different channels! Triple D was ok because you get to see what real ppl do. I WILL SAY THIS!!! There are stars on food network, and foodies know who they are. It's called "FOOD NETWRK" isn't it.

  67. DoneWithFoodNetworkMay 27, 2014 at 5:23 PM

    Enough already! I would rather watch unaired pilots, or re-runs of any of your other "Food Network "STARS" that to watch any more of Guy F. I have been over him for a long time...a little goes a long way. And he has outlived his welcome in our home. We'll not be watching anymore of this "Guy". So long Food Network, you have sealed your fate!

  68. I think Guy must be a big share holder in the Food Network! Can not stand him him, I change the channel,when he is on!

  69. I am sick of DDD and Guy. Too much already!!!!
