Sara Moulton no longer on FoodTV

I am not the biggest fan of hers, but I would wwatch her occasionally. It looks like her contract is not being renewed. She will be moving to PBS in Boston which is a better fot for her IMO. Read some more info here.

WOW! She mentions that this will be Mario Batali's last year too! That's too bad.

Sad.

Fewer and fewer reasons to watch FoodTV every day.

Exactly. It gets harder to learn anything from their shows.

Now if my pbs would only start showing more cooking shows--they hardly run any!

But you can see how they make Atomic Fireballs! And watch people make huge gingerbread houses! And find out what celebrities eat! And learn how to cook with seasoning packets!

ha!!! come over to pbs. forget foodtv, they forgot about serious cooks a long time ago.

you'd think that there's a tv/cable/sattelite market opening up for good cooking shows, not fluff shows about food. i think the oppurtunity is ripe for developing a competing cooking network channel. the advert dollars are certainly there, and the entire market is growing.

Food Network has changed, and I agree it's not for the better, although they do still have some good shows. I have never watched Sara much, because she's on here during my naptime.
