Tom I agree with you and and the other AB fans who have posted. I just wish there were more new shows. I try to stay on top of the schedule and record any Good Eats episodes that I haven't already taped.

Buck and I plan on watching the new season, beginning in August, of Alton Brown's "Dining on Asphalt" because he was in our little town earlier this year filming. He thinks our little barbecue shack is the best ever. Can't wait to see the program. Gotta agree with him, too, the 'cue is yum, yum, yummers!

Yeah, I really enjoyed Feasting on Asphalt. I was a geography major in college, so the whole thought of a geography based culinary tour of the US really appeals to me. I especially like the episodes with the pickled pigs feet and the brain sandwich. Interesting stuff!

Effective next week, Emeril Live is moving from 8:00 PM to 7:00 PM weeknights. Good Eats and Secret Life of... are taking its place. I was surprised by this move.

Good Eats is my favorite. Alton Brown RULES!!!! I also like Unwrapped, but I loathe Mark Summers. I hate the so-called competition shows. BOOORRRRINNNG!!!!
Ya'll should check out Mark DeCarlo on The Travel Channel. I think it's Taste of America. He's a hoot!!

Tyler's Ultimate.... I just saw that yesterday for the first time. I'll have to add that to my earlier list, at least after seeing that one show.

Another one I liked.... I don't think it's on anymore, is that one where the guy used to go to a cook's home who was having trouble cooking something and show them how it's done. Usually simple foods like fried pork chops, roasted chicken, but something that they lent their expertise to.

Right before my job let out for the summer, I broke my leg. I spend a lot of time watching the Food Network, and my mom just doesn't understand why I do. She thinks it's because I'm hungry. I told her it's because I want to get new ideas. She still doesn't get it. I'm just glad to see others around me at school like to watch it, and then you all here. The shows I like are, in no certain order:

30 Minute Meals
Paula's Home Cooking
Good Eats
Iron Chef America
Barefoot Contessa (I used to hate the way this show looked, then I watched it one day and I was hooked)
Throwdown with Bobby Flay
Dinner Impossible
Ace of Cakes
