Jamie Oliver in the US?

Where/how can I watch Jamie Oliver in the US? I've never seen him on tv here. Am I just missing him, or has America shut the blinds for him because he's European?

I would check Youtube. I saw 1 episode and it was months ago. The season is probably over. I know Jamie gets a bad rap in the UK from some but I liked the show and his personality (always have). We will take him here full time when you get tired of him!

'ands orf 'im,'es ours!! the only people he seems to get a bad rap off are his fellow celeb chefs.he's a genuine,sincere guy & he's successful....probably winds up the likes of ramsay,who is one of his critics ,who falls flat on both counts.jamies business/restaurants are successful where ramsay & most of the other "celebs" are having a tough time & closing restaurants over here.

Thanks for the response! :)

I guess I should sit down and do some research..
Would really like to see the series where he's in american schools.

I'd also like to see more of Heston Blumenthal, but thats probably a no go in the US..

Great post. Thanks.

Jaime Oliver on USA TV is great news.

I highly recommend his Mediterranean Cookbook on Italia, Greece, Turkey, Spain, Portugal and Morocco, also.

Wonderful recipes and photographs.

Margi.

I was married to an Englishman and I could't understand him either. That makes two of us that are slow. I am just slower. English please.
