FN Thanksgiving Live - Thoughts?

My immediate response to this show, which i caught earlier this week, was to turn it off quickly. The feverish pace which Alton Brown demonstrated on this show actually cause me to feel anxious and VERY unnerved. It was not an Iron Chef episode, so, IMHO, there was no need for that "mile-a-minute" approach to his emceeing. I was looking forward to watching it, but he totally turned me off to it.

Anyone else feel this way?

  1. seemed a bit mish mosh and fast paced for me.

    1. It makes me feel antsy, as well. It feels a bit like watching a telethon.

      1. I saw most of it and it didn't impress me. I'm tired of Alton Brown, Rachel, Giada, Sunny, and now they have that western woman on there. Yawn.

        1. I felt bad for the short shrift Sunny was given. OTOH I'm ready for Alton and Giada to get their own Regis and Kelly style show any day now.

            shhh, don't say that too loud, they may hear you ;:-/

          2. Train wreck. I had no idea this was even on and someone posted on another forum that this is the second year they did this. I follow both Ree Drummond and Bobby Flay on twitter and Ree kept posting pictures and saying she was at the FN kitchen, but I thought she was just taping something.

            I hardly watch FN anymore unless its on tivo, so I guess I missed the promos.

            My favorite part: They did a big intro of Jeff Mauro who was never to be seen again. I think the tweeting/emailing thing didn't pan out because next thing you know, Ree is sitting down with her laptop rallying her internet troops.
