What is going on, Food Network? You're changing the times of really GOOD programs (like Giada at Home, Barefoot Contessa, and The Pioneer Woman...all shows that actually show how to COOK something) and replacing them with REALLY BAD programs (like Chopped, Worst Cooks In America, Guy's Grocery Games). What happened?....did Giada, Ina, and Ree as for a raise?
Here's a suggestion.....rid yourselves of any programming that has these words in the show's title....."Games", "Wars", Contest", "Race", "Battle", or that has anything to do with salvaging someone's restaurant, bar, or other business. I say, let the bad ones fail...and the good ones succeed....just like the laws of nature and commerce. I am sick to death of watching the muscle-bound, "Pump You Up", guy ranting and screaming at people. Dump him, too.
I think what The Food Network REALLY needs is a new programming director. You've wandered away from programming that the public wants to see. You need to "start dancing with who brought you"...that is, get back to putting on shows that actually SHOW HOW TO COOK SOMETHING. I don't want to see the Worst Cooks.....I want to see the BEST COOKS.
Do he judges diners have salt shakers on their tables....We all have different palates..and.some of us have to be careful regarding our sodium and sugar consumption. That said, some of your judges come across as being self center and only like what they like and not being subjective.
I work mon. Thur fri. And watch food network sat. And sun. But I am sick of reruns The only new one is. the kitchen on sat. However sun. Is all refund. Why can't you put some of the week day shows on like Sandra lee or 30-minute meals or meals for $10.a day its bad enough you rerun dinner driveins and dives all week for 2-3 hrs at a time. You need a new scheduling Dept. Peggy jensen
I am so disappointed you have chosen to replace Pioneer Woman series with Worst Cooks! Maybe worst Cooks is liked by some and could be on late night! Not prime afternoon when our family watches the beautiful wholesome family interacting on Pioneer Woman! PlLEASE bring Ree back! Thank you.
I've just watched the third Worst Cooks show and the Cutthroat Kitchen show. The music intruded so badly that I could hardly hear any dialogue. Any music playing should be background only, not a sound that dominates the show. If I want to hear only music I'll turn to a
Music Choice channel. The intruding music ruined my enjoyment of these two shows. I checked other TV channels. There was nothing
wrong on any other channel. only on these Food Network shows.
DO NOT SUBSCRIBE TO THIS MAGAZINE!!! I paid for a subscription in October and have never gotten the magazine without calling. I didn't get December at all, and they say I won't ever get it, but I MIGHT get the January issue! Who is running this company? Also, don't try to reach them. It's impossible. No wonder customer service is so poor.
You mentioned you were able to call about your subscription. I'm trying to find a phone number for the Food Network Magazine as I purchased a subscription to my daughter and myself in October. They cashed check, but no issues!! Could you please provide phone number.
I have several questions~~1. Why do you repeat programs so much? I like Chopped just this is the third one in a row I've seen!!! You do the same thing with Guy's Triple D's!! It's like you don't have anything else to put on!!! I'd like to see some programs where you LEARN HOW TO MAKE SOMETHING!!! Ex. Pioneer Woman, Trisha just to start with, you can show them of a morning and repeat in the evening! I want to learn from the Food Network, I still like Guys programs and Chopped but not one after the other! 2. I subscribed to your magazine to learn form Lenny, but he hasn't even shown up on a program??? Speaking of you magazine I ALWAYS get it after it's out on the grocery store racks! WHY~I thought we were to get it first? 3. Show up step by step how to make something special! We can watch it in the evening and know what we are doing and go the next day and buy the groceries! Down to earth programs by our favorite people!! You have a good group, like Bobby Flay do you know how many vinegarets he has made but I have no how idea how much of what!!? He, Giada the others previously mentioned!
Just watched Chopped and had the most offensive remarks made in support of barack and michelle obama who kill our economy and cause hunger in our kids and you fools support it. Until you get out of the destructive political agenda of barack and michelle obama offer a public apology for doing so in the first place, I will not ever watch you again and will start a campaign to have you removed from the air for you're hateful and offensive hosts.
I STOPPED WATCHING 'GIADA' BECAUSE SHE SHOULD BE PROMOTING COOKING AND NOT HER BREASTS....SHE IS THE ONLY ONE THAT IS ADVERTISING HERSELF INSTEAD OF RECIPES......WHAT IS HER PROBLEM??????
George I stopped watching the food channel a long time ago when they got into the game show business. Give me America's test kitchen and Cooks Country any day
Again a cooking program without bad advertising, GAME SHOW CONDUCT and THE LOUD LOUD SCREAMING ( WE WILL NEED HEARING AIDS AFTER WATCHING Rachael or Guy or Sunny), OVER TALKING ONE ANOTHER ( TWO THREE FOUR PEOPLE SCREAMING OVER EACHOTHER TO BE HEARD and you can't understand what they are saying), and the saying " I KNOW" after each sentence. We have been watching PBS more and more. *******CORPORATE BRASS********* We are not idiots. We want to learn about the wonderful world of food in our own country and of other country's. HISTROY, TIPS, PRODUCTS, EXACUTION, NEW AND FUN RECIPES.
The Food Network has always been our fun, learning, entertaining, interesting, non violent, non stress, non depressing, Safe Channel.
We have gone from having the shows on most of the day to SHUTTING IT OFF because of the advertising of BEATEN ANIMALS and STARVING CHILDREN. We are not insensitive to these issues and do our part to donate to our local charities, But this sort of advertising begging for money, seeing wonderful food and then seeing a BEATEN ANIMAL and MALNURISHED CHILD does NOT BELONG ON THIS TYPE OF PROGRAMING. PLEASE, PLEASE Think about what you are about and stick to that. You are not a public service channel. Next you will be showing the nightly depressing news. Stick to what you do. Have advertising about food related products and things that pertain to FOOD Thank You
I'm trying to find replacements for the stainless steel white handled riveted flatware. Can't seem to locate the product and some rivets have fallen out on the handles.
I used to be a loyal fan of the food network. All the silly game shows leave me flat. I very rarely watch anymore. Please return to
Your original programming. In the past, your programming included a variety of chefs and cooks in contrast to the present. Don't mess with success!
God bless you.Im with you. What they doing wrong is thay now have no a rea lcooks.Now the have actors that don't know how to act and how to cook. My god, can you believe watching Guy Fiery Pigging out for hours. And Giada showing her teeth and Modeling. She is a show Girl that don't belong in food Busniss
and, Listen to this Food network allowed Guy Fieri to have Six shows, What kind of fod star is he,
Food Network needs Face lift.......!
watching Guy Fieri and pigging out and Giada showing her teeth make me sick. How dis Fieri endup with six food shows? He is not food star.Why do you call him a food star.Giada she is a show Girl When I Watch food I don't care for show Girls. I want to see person that knows how to cook.Give me Bobby, simmons The Famus Batali ,Liddia, Burrel.Neilys, Cortesa and other great cooks. Rid off Chopped. enough is enough. Comeup with new shows. And no more Fieri and Giada.By the way Alton is an idiot!!!!
OMG...please what is with the horrible LOUD music in the back ground of Chopped and several other shows. It is so loud that at time's it blocks out the people talking. Music just isn't conducive to a good show. If you must....then tone it down.
Very poor that your website would be down over the holiday season...I will find other means to look up recipes from now on...
I have worked in the media for nearly 30 years. I am a marketing executive, chef, and BIG FAN of the food network - and all other food network sites. My daughter graduated from Penn State University (with honors) last May had a roommate that has an amazing website entitled www.thedomesticdivadiaries.com that I thought you might want to take note of. Funny cause when they were living together in a house of 8 girls, she didn't strike me as anything particularly "special". But my daughter Piper keeps sending me notes about how very creative, cutting-edge, and talented Jenna is relating to all things food. Her recipes are innovative, her writing revels Ree Drummond (who we are all very fond of), and she is a young energetic woman who works with "special needs" kids but does an amazing job writing, blogging and creating on the side. My young daughters (age 21 and 23) and I have watched The Food Network for as long as you have been on. Matter of fact, my daughter's boyfriend, a mechanical engineer, is now hooked. Food Network seems to be their "go to" when nothing relative is on TV (which seems to be most of the time!).Take a minute and check out Jenna's website - you just might find "The Next Food Network Star!".
Is anyone reading these comments? Someone in PR needs to get on top of maintaining your public relations as the comments here are overwhelmingly negative. I am a chef with a BA in media management and am shocked by the vast # of complaints about the networks website, phone and other "fixable" problems.
I so agree I am so sick & tired of all the "game shows" on food network. If you want to make them do something about it--contact their major advertisers--that is where the real money comes from!! Maybe then they will listen!
contact their major tv advertisers & I'll bet then something will change!
I haven't seen the new website, but I'm sure, w the reputation food network knows the have in the food industry, they are working on a fix. It would be impossible to answer every complaint. Please be patient. I'm sure they will get their media team to fix it so you can go back to printing recipes.
yeah right--do you work for them I tried to print 3 recipes tonite & only got one! I hate the network now & the website. I will go elsewhere!
