Food Network is just awful. They need to fire that president of the network with the quickness. The only cool cutting edge show that they have is Iron Chef. I actually lose passion for food when I watch food network. Their thirty minute shows are so beyond corny and goofy. From Guy acting like he is a co-star from the movie Swingers, or that Everyday Italian chef that does that silly sexy eye thing everytime she eats something. Dont get me started on that one show that shows us how everything is made with that annoying Mark guy. Actually, I think the guy in charge of most horrible shows is that Elliot guy? Fire him! It's all too fake for me to swallow.
Food Network should be the birth place of cutting edge shows that excite, motivate, inspire, piss off and wow the viewers not bore them to death and make them feel less inspired. These Disney goody good personailties need to go.
Shows like No Reservations, Hells Kitchen, The Restaurant, Top Chef, F word, Kitchen Nightmares (UK Version) should of came from Food Network, but instead they create the lamest rip off versions. Just Awful. Just hire talent with "real" personailites and let them keep their own flare, instead of turning them into a Disney toon.
I do however like Booby Flay and a couple of others that keep it real and fun. Food Network would be awesome if they were leaders and not horrible followers.
