usually i have foodtv on if only for back ground noise. however i am so sick of all the repeats, that i never put that channel on all weekend. i am big time sick of cupcake wars repeats. they weren't that good to start with. it is a stupid show, i think, sure haven't learned anything from it. maybe i should have put this in venting. lol

As long as it made you feel better. I have come to hate weekend TV. And repeats whenever there is even a whiff of a holiday means repeats all week!

Occasionally, I luck into a marathon of Universe, Wild Pacific, or Life, etc. Then I have my pretty pictures as my background all day.

I wonder if anyone remembers "Taste" with David Rosengarten?
I also used to enjoy the first incarnation of "How to Boil Water", I wonder if anyone else knows who the original host was? Emeril Lagasse
I also used to enjoy Justin Wilson.
These days I don't find some of the shows appealing, with the exception of Alton Brown, or Bobby Flay and a few others.
I reckon I am just being nostalgic here.......
BTW.. if you right click this post and choose "Select All" from the window that opens, the original host of "How to Boil Water" will be revealed.
Sean Dennellon and his adviser was Cathy Lowe.

Remember Ready,Set Cook with Sissy Biggers? I'll never forget when she taste some adobe from a can of chipoltes. I think it was Michael Simon that gave her the taste.

Anybody remember "The Galloping Gourmet" with Graham Kerr, back in his bad ole days?

Top chef has been pretty good. Other than that I like watching Nova and other boring stuff.

I'm a big fan of Ghost Hunters on Sci Fi.

Also, ALMOST anything on Food Network.

I have been on rabbit ears for over 18 years now. Three fuzzy channels. I rarely watch.

I bet there are at least 20 channels we never watch on our cable service.

We watch lots of Documentaries and Movies. Maybe 5 shows on commercial TV.
