I don't know what's going on with the network. Now all I see is pioneer woman and children cooking shows, chopped and beat bobby flat. I have no person problem with pioneer woman, but where are all the other FN stars Giada, Ina, Sunny, Trisha Yearwood, Rachel Ray. This new version is boring especially considering that I watch FN all day , and you guys are constantly playing the same thing over and over. I grew up watching these FN stars with my grandmother and I am truly touched by this change. Even reruns of their shows would be appreciated. I just want the old food network back. You guys have really lost a true viewer.
Totally agree, where are all the great chefs that don't get to be on the network anymore cause of all the silly game shows,everything is a competition now and no one is cooking for us who want to know how to make good food! Please bring back the chefs from before, everyone's begging for it or we won't watch
Pleae bring them back!
Cake Wars very good
Baking Champions very good
Cupcake contests good
We want Demaris, ina, Valerie, Ree, Tricia, Melissa deArabian, and even Rachael Ray, but she needs to tie up her messy hair, and, for that matter, they all should tie up their hair, it's discussing to see them cook with all that hair hanging down next to the food, except for Ina, she knows how to dress when cooking, and her hair is always perfect.
I agree , more cooking less"game show",
Miss Melissa D.
Please bring them back on in the evening!!!
I agree, I am tired of all the competition /game shows. I know the ratings/polls must support them but I prefer real cooking. Give us much more Ina ,(she is the absolute best), Demaris,who I feel deserves more airtime, I like Trisha, Pioneer Woman, and Nancy Ginsberg but where are the new cooks? Food Network & Cooking Channel used to have real cooking shows, now they are more entertainment based. I don't watch as much as I used too or want to.
Yes! PLEASE LISTEN TO US!!!!!!
I think that Guy Fieri has bought the food network and that's why all you see is him shoved down our throats, that's what happened to the once wonderful programming that use to be, and while we're at it, what the hell happened to Rachael Ray? She looks horrible, dresses the worst and that witch hair needs a major do over!! Good bye Guy Fieri!
On the kids baking championship : its not fair to reward the little girl by putting her threw when she didnt make all her food herself someone else did her whip cream then you send home a boy who made all his own food way to go food network treach kids that cheating is rewarded and good honest work isnt
Please bring back REAL cooks and ditch the boring competition shows . Old and tired concept. Has forced me to watch PBS and stream ither channels. You're losing viewers!
I work during the day. I do get home early afternoon and nothing is on but re runs of competion shows..with maybe a re run of pioneer woman :) PLEASE bring back the cooking shows...not tia or the other kid star sister which I dont watch at all ..either show. Stop airing all the competion shows in the afternoon. I used to watch Ina till 6 pm. Where is she?
Why can I not see a previous episode of worst chefs. ..tonights episode is on ...but I cannot view the one before. ...we use optimum cable...they say you don't provide them with the episode
stop the screaming on the kitchen. it is becoming the sunny Anderson scream off. I cant watch it anymore
On the Cooking Channel Donut Showdown one of the bakers had a full beard chest length. Shouldn't he had his beard and hair covered?
I would never ever buy anything from a bakery that had people baking with their long hair and beards not covered.
Also when touching the food they are not wearing gloves. My granddaughter is in Culinary School and she also says this is not showing anyone the proper attire when baking or cooking.
I would appreciate an answer.
Pleeeeeeease ask Ree to stop saying the word "just" in nearly every sentence! She's becoming unwatchable. I finally changed the channel on her. Just right amount... I'm just going to mix this... this looks just delicious... just needs to cook until golden... I just love cumin... stop! Expand your vocabulary, please!
Also, I agree with the other viewers who miss the cooking tutorial shows. They're only shown on weekend mornings, aka when most families have zero time to be watching tv. I especially miss Secrets of Restaurant Chef and Southern at Heart. Anne and Demaris are great teachers.
Yes to bringing back Demaris and Nancy Fuller, Ina, and Valerie, in the evenings!
Just like the sat morning lineup!!!!!
I hate diner drivers and dive
I hate ddd, he's obnoxious and that's all you show 24/7 it's over for me and all my friends who want to watch a variety of cooks showing us how to make good food, you have the people there, you just choose to shove ddd down our throats, were finished with your silly network that use to be so great! Bye
Why won't the network listen!
I use to watch all night for entertainment
I have read many posts over the past few months, many saying how much the formerly wonderful FN programs and chefs are missed. There still remain one or two bearable programs but basically nothing has changed and I truly don't feel that it will. I can only guess at what led up to this. Perhaps due to a combination of FN execs who hold different values and don't appreciate the joy and art of cooking and or a changing audience that enjoys competition, gluttony, "worst" cooks rather than talented chefs, obnoxious never ending re-runs and hosts who have long outlived their appeal.
I have many memories of watching the FN with my children and I had hoped to share that with my grandson. Now I don't want him watching as most of the programs have nothing to do with learning or appreciating the happiness that cooking and sharing meals can bring.
I am done with this network and that makes me sad.
I totally agree!! It gets more and more disappointing every day
Yep! Losing me too! Someone needs to take over the network and bring back real cooking shows
Chopped is way over rated!
So is Diners and Dives... stop playing most if the day and all night!!!!
Worst Cooks not much better!
