What's up with the new Food Network Star Kids. The new hosts aren't nice at all. They are children, not adults and the new hosts could learnc from some of the previous hosts. In fact this seasons hosts are almost mean, especially Mowry...and Donal Skehan isn't that nice either. I had to turn it off and I guess I won't even watching it this season.
I agree with you! I watched last night and the hosts are mean to the kids,even make them cry.They always have something bad to say,how about some positive feedback.They are only kids,not adults.I think they shouldn't be hosting a kids show.I hardly ever watch food network anymore anyway,I just thought I would give them one last try.I pay extra for this channel and have decided to not keep it anymore.They have too much block programming and I like shows like Ina and Rachael Ray and other actual cooking shows.I have watched food network for years,but sadly,I am done watching this channel.
It is bad enough that your host are hateful to the adults , THEY have taken too the children THIS IS ABUSE ! and I am telling every agency I can about it. Chef Ramsey is out of control!!!! And you know it !He belittles everyone he can. HE IS A BULLIE no matter if he dealing with an adult or a CHILD. And Bulling is not Acceptable . Your network is excepting this .He IS a ABUSER! And I Will NOT let this go, WHAT WOULD YOU DO IF SOMEONE TREATED YOUR CHILD LIKE YOU DO???
where have all the artist gone?
your cake wars has fallen so bad that my children playing with play-doe could do better. What happened to the wonderful birthday cake, the beautiful wedding cakes. The stop my heart sugar work. YOU have turned out to be a sell out like the rest.
enough of the kids, now you got it on prime time. I want adult entertainment, see if sesame street wants your programing
Does Guy own food network? He's on all the time!! And it is very boring.The vi
ewers want more of Ina, such a classy lady and chef, and the good chefs who teach us and are interesting . Why don't you listen to us? Are you trying to get the show canceled? Forget Giada who has changed, forget Bobby. We want Ina and the good guys!!! Wise up!
By the way now I watch my programs on pinterest and turn off the foodnetwork
What a shame FN has talent like Giada, Ree, Ina, Bobby, Trisha, Valerie, and all we get are these ridiculous games. I love Alton but his new show is so ridiculous, I love Guy but his stupid game show is just as ridiculous. 80% of my TV watching used to be FN only, now the only time I watch it is on Saturday and Sunday mornings when the real chefs and cooks are on, where i can actually relate and learn something. Are profits that bad that you have to stoop so low to get ratings, or maybe it just isn't enough? I'm sure it's ALL about the almighty DOLLAR, as is everything in this life. Just so you know, your greediness is showing. See you if/when you add more real cooking shows with real talent.
I second that. The least they can do is make an announcement. Us tried and true viewers for many years would appreciate it. Guess they are just going to drive it into the ground.
I a gree that you put far too many episodes on Food Network like chopped, all the games and contests. They are on most of the day aand into the night. . We like the cooking shows like the Pioneer Woman, The Barefoot Contessa who I can only find on Sunday mornings at 7am, She use to come on afternoons at 4, now its all the other crap till nighttime. Cupcake Wars, really, junk. You are really ridiculous. Us women at home, love watching your stars cook.Guy Fiere, on for hours with his travel shows, on hours at a time, really, put your chefs back on more, those are the ones we relate to. More of Rae and Ina.
Agree...110% Glad I"m not alone.
I agree these game show are terrible this is not a cooking show I live in a foreign country and pay a lot of money for this station and now I turn it off when you show these horrible shows I want to pay to watch cooks really cook. By the way I love the pionner woman show she cooks what every day family's . Please show less of the game shows.
Your promotion of alcohol on your shows have gone overboard. Look at what alcohol has done to people. So many people are suffering it, and now you can't even watch food show without the hosts drinking. Promoting alcohol at the expense of someone's health or even life is evil.
TY Anonymous. I told them they did the classic bait & switch.
They sure did, Music Chef.
A couple other people have mentioned watching Create channel on PBS. We were just reading that they'll have all new episodes starting later in Sept. of "Cooks Country" / test kitchen. Sounds like great new recipes and it's fun watching them prepare the meals. Also, they test all the recipes and give tips on cooking each one. Really learn a lot watching, like we used to do on Food Network.
I love the shows on PBS. They have Italian, Mexican & Cajun. Real cooking - no stupid games. Have also been browsing the web and youtube and found some good ones as well. I work on computers all day so not inclined to do so to relax - not like watching tv. But better than turning on my once beloved channel that now has games and junk.
Where is Ina??? Where is Rachael Ray????? Why are you not caring what your viewers want???????????????/
I'm done with Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives...18 episodes in a row. Sick of "Winner, Winner, Chicken Dinner" one more time.
Friday night...18 episodes of Dinners, Drive-Ins & Dives. Are you kidding me. So many great shows, reruns can be great but no... you have to give us 18 episodes of the same thing back to back, over and over and over again. I don't dislike the show but they all run together after awhile, the script is always the same. If I hear "Winner, Winner, Chicken Dinner" one more time... I just can't take it any more...I'm tuning out.
I have many favorite" food" shows - The Kitchen - GZ - Anne B - Beat Bobby F - Chopped when it's FAIR - Kids (they r absolutely AMAZING) - ALL FOOD SHOWS (on any network [next is The Chew w/Daphne] SHOULD REQUIRE ANYONE W/LONG HAIR [FEMALE OR MALE] PULL IT BACK .....PERIOD..... (Alex & Amanda r good - Maneet is OK [actually she looks beautiful w/her hair pulled back] - It is disgusting to c these professional & amateur Chefs/Cooks serve food w/their hair hanging in their face & they keep using their fingers to push it back!!!!!
After reading may of the reviews I realize I'm not alone in my thoughts about the new shows. I hate them. I so enjoyed watching the Pioneer Woman and Ina etc. My afternoons are not the same anymore. Please, Please bring them back.
Is there a Food Network anymore? I want to see the chefs and cooking. Take these silly
cupcake,soup cake races to the kitty channel. Bring back our serious cooks! Yes PBS
has some good ones. COOKS COUNTRY is great. Learn a lot an enjoy. FN you're
screwing up a past good thing. Bottom line BRING BACK THE REAL FOOD NETWORK!
It is now the Food competition, tasting and game show channel.
To Music Chef:
Thanks for posting FN's reply to your email.
I agree though with others who rated their answer to you a poor one.. It's kind of like they're passing the blame and saying "it's not my job", etc.
If anything, those who list themselves as being in "viewer relations" must know exactly what has caused such a drastic change in the format and programs.
They obviously don't care about what people who have followed the network for 20 plus years feel and/or haven't given any consideration to the comments.
They also know exactly what they're doing and must have an audience for all the horrible game and competion type shows and reruns or they wouldn't be continuing them.
And that's pathetic. It's almost fraudulent to still be calling themselves the Food Network.
My family and I have tried to be patient but it's obvious there will be no return to the great chefs and programs they once had. We're absolutely done watching and are disgusted with the garbage they're airing.
As others have said, switch over to PBS Create channel. It's the closet thing to what FN used to be.
TY Anonymous. I told them they did the classic bait & switch. I too have switched back to PBS. Can, t take FN anymore and the block programming adds insult to injury. Not sure if many noticed but even the ladt two FN Stars did not get a cooking show . Just another touring, tasting, sample show.
