You asked "does anyone else like watching cooking shows when they eat meals (especially if the show features what you are eating at the moment), or like to snack while watching cooking or otherwise foodie shows?"

I was replying that I don't.

But just so I'm not unclear, I don't watch TV when I'm eating by myself, either. Ok. Very occasionally if there's a game on or something like that. But I don't make a habit of it. Also, we don't have cable/dish, so we don't get Food Network, or Cooking Channel, or any of those.

I always watch The Chew because it airs at lunch time and makes me laugh.

i know it sounds weird, but try it. i noticed a strangely enjoyable feeling once when i was eating sushi while watching a show about how to make sushi.
i tried it again while eating omelettes one morning while watching jacques pepin, and another time watching maria esposito in italy while i was eating - you guessed it... pasta.

you can record a pbs cooking or travel/foodie show show, then either make or take out the same thing and see what i mean.

it's weird, but i guess it goes along the lines of eating with your eyes.

Lol... not quite the same, but sometimes I do get an urge for a Tony O(liva)'s Cubano sandwich while watching a Twins game.

Although other times while watching them, I get an urge to down a few scotches to dull the pain.

About to watch American Horror Story: Freak Show. I haven't seen any of the other seasons. This one sounds really interesting.

No zombies, but so far, I'm very impressed! Love old circus shows, and I'm terrified of clowns. Think I'll be following this one, and may have to look into the previous seasons.

It has elements of a very old movie, Freaks (1932), and a great book, Geek Love (K. Dunn).

Thanks for the 'heads up', I just set the DVR to record the show.
