I'll definitely be watching for this and will DVR Alton's new shows. I loved them before, and looking forward to new "Good Eats"!

I've also all but stopped watching Food Network - as mentioned, they've become too redundant and focused on competition.

I like that show, but only so much as I like being entertained and technically informed at the same time.

I think restaurants been paying them not to teach people how to cook.

Alton Brown: Return of Good Eats

I read up on this earlier today. The show will be on the internet. AB didnít want to deal with Food Network because they had too many restrictions on content, including what he was allowed to cook. The latest I read was that he was trying to figure out how to fund the show.

He covered so much and so many basics in previous shows that maybe he wanted to get into a more serious more elite cooking show.

The network probably said..."that's too fancy, Alton."

He said it as because they wouldn't let him cook things like rabbit, liver or a whole pig.

I'm with you there re the competitions. Particularly the competitions which relish the tantrums and when the cake falls over. As a retired teacher I really can't be doing with precocious children. I keep hoping one will fall in the soup and drown

Do you get the British "Master Chef" in the US? It was originally all about amateur cooks but it's become a competition between professional chefs. Who cares? Most viewers can't afford to eat in their "up market" restaurants anyway so why give them the publicity.

I'd like to see Alton Brown on Food Network UK (most of it is American anyway). Everyone seems to think highly of him.

I'm getting fed up with the Chilli Queen (Pioneer Woman). We get her 4 times a day and repeats at the weekend! Has she got shares in a chilli pepper farm? She doesn't seem to be able to cook without it - I'll swear I saw her put chilli powder in a dessert!
