I see that it's been entirely pulled off of Food Network, including reruns. The reruns on Cooking Channel are only the early, travel format shows from before TU became a more traditional cooking show.

    FN probably pulled it so they could add more episodes of Chopped.

      They are soon going to have to rename the network. A typical day is 90% filled with Chopped and DD&D. It's become pretty pathetic.

          Competitions do dominate in the Primetime and Late Night hours, but Morning, Daytime,Evening are still mostly instructional (on FN).

        According to FN website, there were 8 seasons. The last episode of season 8 appears to have first aired in early 2010 (judging from comments on one of its recipes).

        According to the CC website, this show appears weekday mornings at 11am.

        He has a web site

        mainly connnected with his California store; and also Tweets

        My guess is he isn't making new shows (except maybe some specials - and the next Food Truck race), but that reruns will continue during daytime hours on both channels.

          The CC reruns only include the boring "travel" years of TU. The seasons where TU is a proper cooking show (the ones I'm interested in) aren't being broadcast on CC. Food Network isn't showing reruns at all for several months. A cancellation announcement would have been nice.

            According to IMDB, TU was produced by Optomen Television, though I can't find anything about it on their own web site.
