I must agree the new Food Channel does not look promising, but that's what happens when you create a program to compete with "yourself." What were they thinking?

Actually, I have to disagree. Although I had serious misgivings when I first heard about it, I find that I have it on more than anything else since it debuted. I love the retro shows, & particularly like the fact that they're showing a lot of the quality shows that were dropped from the Food Network lineup.

Even have found myself dvr'ing quite a few different show episodes as a reminder to go online & get the recipes from their website - something I can't remember doing for quite a long long time.

I can see a LOT of people who, like me, HATE all the reality cooking shows & the overexposure of Food Networks regular "stable" tuning in here.

So far, so good. But they DO have Giada & Emeril on here, & if I see so much as a hair of Rachel Ray, Paula Deen, or a reality show, that'll be it & I'll be tuning out - lol!

Food Network ditched their channel Fine Living Network and started the Cooking Channel to replace it. if you got Fine Living you should now get Cooking Channel on the same channel

There are several threads re: the new "Cooking Channel" over on the "Cooking TV Shows" forum.

So far I've been watching La Dolce Vita, Chinese Food Made Easy, Jamie at Home and reruns of Giada. I tried Food Jammers and Everyday Exotic but they weren't for me.

really like Chuck Hughes. Dave Rocco is good. good to see Jamie around. Like the basic concept of more cooking and less competition,; good to see some old shows back up...even if production values are not today's standard. Chinese French baking etc all good to have.

Unfortunately, they've already shot themselves in the foot.

I had the channel on fairly regularly at first - in some cases pretty much all day while working around the house - but in the past several weeks, all of the shows except for the golden oldies (Sara Moulton, Julia Child, Graham Kerr, Two Fat Ladies, etc.) have been repeats over & over ad infinitum.

Can't figure out how the Food Network geniouses expect to retain viewers with that sort of programming.
