Alton Brown: Return of Good Eats

I might be a little too happy about this, I love Alton, and Good Eats is, has been, and always will be one of my faves.

Good news. He is too anal in his cooking for me, but loved the show for entertainment -- and the food science stuff.

Perfect! That network really needs to have more cooking shows other than rehashed reruns. They need to get rid of crap like Game Shows, Truck Races, etc.....

I agree. I stopped watching Food Network years ago when it started turning into the Food Game Show Network. It was around the time they also began showing endless hours of "Triple D". I absolutely can't stand that Fieri guy, either.

Maybe this is a sign that they recognize the network has gone stale and needs some new, interesting shows that aren't all about competitions.

This is the worst news I have heard in a long time.

Why?

We don't get that channel up here and it will take years before any of our cable networks pick up the show.

But I am happy for all of my American Alton Addicts!

I agree with Craig and Steve. I was an avid FN watcher from it's inception many years ago, but just couldn't take it any more and stopped watching a long time ago.

We watch the reruns over and over. Hard to believe most of them are from 2000 and before.
