BOO! Next Iron Chef on Cooking Channel

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.

    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.

      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.
