Emeril leaving Food Network?
Hard to imagine the network without Bam! Honestly, I'm not a fan of Emeril Live, but with the direction the network is heading in, I suspect any new programming will be horrible.
I have to take this story with a grain of salt. It concludes by saying Essence of Emeril will continue in production, but I don't recall seeing a new episode in years -- only very old repeats on Saturday mornings and weekday midafternoons. Please correct me if I'm wrong.
I am so disenchanted with this network. Everyone is an "entertainer" as opposed to being a true chef. It's gone so far downhill. I guess it's time for them to move on beyond Emeril (and Mario's gone too), but I don't have much hope for what they've got coming... (Especially if it's got anything to do with Guy, Sandra, Rachael, Bobby, or Paula.)
Here's an idea... Highlight the food, concentrate less on the obnoxious "talent!"
