Variety reported this and had quotes from Food Network's Bob Tuschman, where he said the episodes of "Triple D" will run at 11pm for an "indefinite" amount of time. They made the decision as they have a “deep library” of episodes filmed and the show is “upbeat.” Bob Tuschman also said they "thought it would make the perfect late-night accompaniment, a nightcap before you want to go to bed.”
This means that in addition to the sometimes 12 hour blocks of Guy Fieri on Monday and Friday's, there will be even more of him during the week. With Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives, Guy's Grocery Games, Rachael vs Guy Celebrity Cook-Off, Rachael Vs Guy Kids Cook-Off, and Guy's Big Bite, it will be hard to turn on the Food Network and not see Guy Fieri.
The Food Network has not run 11pm "strips" for some time, but it used to do so with older programs such as Unwrapped and Good Eats.
It sounds like this could have been a perfect opportunity to bring back more episodes of Good Eats to the Food Network, which many people want to see. Good Eats also has a "deep library" and could have broken up some of the repetitiveness of the Food Network.
