New Cooking Network!

I just saw a commercial for a NEW Network, the Cooking Channel! It premiers on May 31st, and they urge you to contact your cable provider to begin carrying it. I guess it's going into competition against the Food Network, so now we'll have a whole new selection of faces and concepts.

I just thought you'd like to know.

I am surprised it took this long. Hopefully they will concentrate on food more than personalities.

Looks like the same bs we have now. We need a real competition, then we might see some serious cooking, not RR.

I don't understand what they are doing. They don't have enough programming to keep the current Food Network going without running a ton of reruns repeatedly.

If they are going to try to spread those same shows over a new network along with a few new shows, I'm not interested.
