Favorites: Kitchen Chemistry, Good Eats, Rick Stiens Travels, and I rather enjoyed Malto Mario. The Great Chefs Series. No Reservations.

And IF we can include radio shows, The Splendid Table on NPR, LOVE IT!

LEAST FAVES: Anything Rachel Ray or Emeril(ducks and covers), and that Sandra Lee lady, she just irks me.

I still like Mario Batali and Tyler Florence. Kyle Kwong over on BBC or TLC or Home, and Chef at Home. Iron CHef, GOrdon Ramsay, Top CHef, are all fine as is Dinner Impossible, No reservations,

Do not care for the Emeril, Rachel, Paula programs, the crock pot cooks, the canned soup queens etc. I know they have their place and I have my clicker. I wish PBS would show more of their cooking on Sundays as they used to. I'm not free on Sat so I miss it all.

I used to like Alton Brown more, before he was guest judge on "Next Food Network Star". IMHO, he came off being a jerk on those episodes. Still, "Good Eats" is a great show, very informative. I like learning about how and why things work the way they do.

I can't stand overenthusiasm, so Emeril and Rachael Ray are out for me. I still watch Paula Deen from time to time, but she can be a bit much at times, too. I also can't stand that "Semi-Homemade" show. I'm sorry, but to me, a lot of the stuff she cooks looks like crap. She also relies way too much on processed foods and sugar. I don't believe that anyone who looks like her actually eats that way.

I kind of enjoy "Ace of Cakes". My son likes "Unwrapped", so I watch that with him sometimes. I also like "Barefoot Contessa", that show with Nigella (can't remember the name) and Michael Chiarello. There's a show that I think might be local called "Sam the Cooking Guy" and it's good, too.

I like nearly all of the BBC shows...especially one that is apparently a couple years old called "The Best".
I also watch "Bizarre Foods", while not a cooking show in the strict sense, it is still interesting.

Oh quite the contrary, I don't have that much free time, but I do have many rooms in my home and when here, all the televisions are always turned on to the same thing, food/cooking/baking/kitchen stuff. So, folding laundry, doing dishes, typing midterms, washing floors/sweeping/cleaning or whatever, I can hear or see all desired.
Now when on the road, funny thing is, even in hotels they have televisions.and Bowlingshirt, this 'is' a foodie forum after all

My favorites are Top Chef, Ming's Travel Show, Paula, Bobby, Tyler's Ultimate, Iron Chef, Guys Big Bite, Good Eats, Nigella and Ina. Besides just cooking I like Feasting on Asphalt, Dinner Impossible, and Throwdown.

I do not like Sandra Lee, Robin's make everything for a week on Sunday show, or the new Latino show on FN.
