Dang, you're right. That's supposed to be the first quarter schedule.

Has the network changed hands recently, either in ownership or in management?

I was on that show once....and was completely disappointed. The menu of the day was so simple a 5 year old could do it. He doesn't really do anything. He's got a staff of about 12 people in a room behind the stage doing all the prep work. During commercial breaks they bring out the next phase for him. While he was speaking about something silly, we could all hear the mixers whirring in the next room.

There was a time when cooking shows were actually educational. Now, they're just glorified sales pitches for products, places and people.

Emeril had more believability back when he first shot Essence of Emeril.

That is a surprise. I can't say I am a fan of the show. Just don't care for it. I wonder who will be next on FN's line up.

Technically not canceled, just no more new shows. We know FN has no compunctions about reruns. Emeril will be around for a while.

Just wished that FN would pay and have the late and great French Chef, Julia Child, on. I would stay up and watch that. Emiril......bang, bang, no ma'am! Just my opinion.....

FN is making a monetary decision.

All I know is we have not watched it in years.
