Thumbs up Guy Off the Hook

Anyone seen this one yet. I like it but it reminds me a lot of the early days of Emeril's show with the studio audience and the whole nine yards. The only thing missing is the band. I do like it though. It's fun to watch.

I didn't know it existed. I like Guy and just checked the schedule to see when I could watch it. I'll check it out this Sunday. Thanks for the "heads up."

I viewed some of the recipes from the program and some of them sounded really good. I'm looking forward to it.

I think they may end up doing with him like they did with Rachael Ray and a few others. They saturate the market with them. Invent pots,pans,cookbooks, and utensils and people get tired of seeing them. I can't stand to look at Rachael Ray anymore and I used to really like her.
Seems FN finds a cash cow and rubs your face in them so much that eventually you have to say, I've had it, that's enough. Too much of a good thing is always that way.

I agree, chefK.
Another saturation is Paula Deen and her sons and sometimes her husband. Enough, already.

And it's really not that I didn't/don't like them. I just got full up to here of them. I guess when you get that cash cow, it's hard to pull back on it sometimes. Guess they have to "milk" it for all it's worth. *snicker*

He's not copying. He does what he's told to do by the network.

I really like him. I hope they don't destroy him. Rachel, Paula, Emeril... I could take them or leave them. Guy, I can relate to, DD&D entertains me so much.

I agree, Paula, Rachel, Emeril... bah.. there's something about each of their voices that really irk me... And that's kind of an important part of a cooking show... I do like the reality cooking shows like "Top Chef" and "Chopped", I think cause there is less talking, and it's amazing what they come up with under those crazy time/resource restraints.
