BOO! Next Iron Chef on Cooking Channel

MplsM ary Oct 27, 2011 08:44 AM

I thought Cooking Channel was supposed to be about cooking, not the dreckitude of never-ending food competitions. Shove your food battles. I'll take PBS reruns from the 70s and 80s over competition shows any day.

Bad call, Cooking Channel.

    I say boo for a different reason. I actually enjoy the silly shows, and I don't get Cooking channel. Oh well.

      DGresh, Comcast cable offers some channels I don't subscribe to On Demand. So I have been able to catch some Cooking channel shows. FYI.

      It's replacing the Japanese Iron Chef reruns (which have gone through 2 cycles since CC started). So there's no increase of competitions (at least not in the prime time slot). FN has some old NIC marathons, as a lead up to the newest NIC starting at the end of the month.

      What has really taken over CC is old Good Eats episodes.
