Chiff, you missed my point entirely. I have never said, if its broken do not fix it. I am saying that we, as chefs and foodies, may see it as being broken, but maybe the teaming masses don't see it that way. Maybe to them it is just right. For them, they may prefer the entertainment value, the pretty faces, the simple, convenience food laden recipes. These people seem to prefer the crappy fluff that FNTV puts out. I never said not to make your voice heard. Im just saying that your voice may be that of the minority, and don't expect them to change for that minority. But let's face it, the teaming masses (I never claimed they were right or even very bright) don't want instructional TV unless it entertains, and they want it delivered by witty, beautiful people. Julia, Jeff Smith, Graham Kerr, and all the others of early, PBS cooking shows would have never made it today. They are not beautiful enough, trendy enough, or witty enough. ****, look at what has happened to TLC (loaded with Makeover Story, Dating Story, Wedding Story, etc.) or The Discovery Channel (Monster Garage, Monster House, American Chopper, etc.). These sure aren't the stations they once were, but as disgusted by the majority of their programming as I am, I still find something worthwhile on those channels.
