Food Network has really gone down the tubes. Don't get me wrong, I do watch some DDD but playing it for hours every day gets boring.
What's with all the competition shows? The only competition I loved was Iron Chef America. Halloween Wars is fun because it can only be done during October.
I miss "Good Eats", "30 Minute Meals" "Paula Deen", " The Pioneer Woman".
The Kitchen is good except for all the screaming. I like Sunny but she is so loud that when she starts, I mute it. Katie sometimes gets on my nerves but not much. Jeff can be loud and act like a kid too much. And, stop talking over people.
It also looks like Geoffrey Z is gritting his teeth and trying to tolerate it all.
GGG, Chopped, anything thing with kids or TV stars needs to go. You need to remove about 85% of your shows and replace them with cooks or chefs that have a passion for their craft that you can see that spark in their eyes when they cook.
Why do you still do "The Next Food Network Star"? The winners hardly ever have staying power.
I want cooking and good stories behind it. I don't need special effects and fancy lights. Just good, honest cooking.
Why get rid of Paula Deen? No one's perfect. But, Nancy Fuller is no Paula Deen and I feel that you're trying to convince us that she is the next Paula. She's not.
I used to have FN on my favorite channel list and had many shows on my DVR. No longer.
You're losing your fans. You better listen to them. Without all of us, you're going to go under.
FN, overhaul your channel.
We are hungry for something real.
