I am really sick of all the competition shows. And these actors????!!!! Seriously they need acting lessons! I want to see a chef teach me to cook not some highly paid actors. I watched foodnetwork to learn to cook and for new ideas to cook. All I see is a bunch of ridiculous people talking smack and the same old re runs. What happened to teaching people about cooking? And I used to love Bobby Flay and Giada but enough is enough. You are losing so many viewers with the crap you are running. Where is all these new foodnetwork stars? We voted them in to watch them cook not host silly shows.
I used to enjoy watching the afternoon food shows such as Ina, Pioneer Woman, Trisha, etal. Now all we get are the competition shows which do not interest me at all. Why must everything be a competition; better for the evening viewing. I know these shows I mentioned are on in the morning, but how many of us are able to sit & watch TV then....we work, you know. It used to be a pleasure to sit after a day's work & watch all those talented ladies!! I now watch another channel during that time. PLEASE bring back those shows...listen to your loyal viewers. Thank you!!!
Where are the real cooking shows where we learn something? Your lineup now is stupid!Who makes these decisions? And most of all, where is Ina ? She is a lady and was very entertaining. Weekends don't cut it. Stop pushing her out. Bring her back where we can enjoy her! I hope she is well and knows how much her fans miss her.
Bring her back to a reasonable weekday time!! Listen to your viewers.
Feeling really sad Food Network Star eliminated Ana. I was SOOOOO looking forward to a show about Cuban cooking. It seems to be so popular now and thought she brought much to the table. Don't care who wins the show now.
Please bring back Ina.Is she okay? Also please give Erin from Food Network Star her own baking show.She has such a bubbly personality and alot of good ideas.Thank you.
I am very disappointed that you have eliminated Ina Garten's shows. I was watching weekdays twice a day, and now don't watch at all. Putting her on at ridiculous weekend times is now help at all.
Also, I don't enjoy the contest shows and many of the other chefs don't offer what she does. Ina is the best. Please bring her back!
I'e been watching foodnetwork since 2004. I used to be able to come home and watch hours of actual cooking shows by a LARGE variety of chefs and it would inspire my next meal. That was the highlight of my evening at times.
Lately when I do turn on Food Network it's nothing but a few reality competitions aired back to back. There are VERY few cooking shows and even those get aired back to back. Bobby Flay is great but how much of "Brunch with Bobby" can a person sit through. I miss the variety your network used to provide. I have to preset recordings if I want a cooking show. These competitions have their place but it needs to be balanced with some other variety.
PLEASE bring back some more variety in your instructional programs and not just the same 4 chefs aired over and over again.
what happened to Ina Garten ????? miss her - your whole format is changed in late afternoon -
I have been watching your show since it has aired. I think the network has gone down hill and you do not offer any healthy cooking shows everything is meat and dairy. no vegan cooking shows you should be promoting healthy live style and not only for the human race but the animal race and most of all our environment. I will not watch the network and will spread the word WE NEED HEALTY ALTERNATIVES LIKE VEGAN AND VEGETARIAN COOKING SHOWS
FNS has become so ghetto that it is hard to watch. I don't relate to the slang language that is used like "fleek" and "popping." I don't know anyone that speaks that way.
The music on chopped is very annoying and unnecessary for a talk show venue
Why are we paying to watch the class Guy Fieri 42/7 on Diners,dive ( where he obviously) belongs). And endless Chopped series. This is ridiculous. Please bring back chefs. Old or new with REAL cooking shows. New Ina's, Martha Stewart, etc. why are you doing such a programming disasterr? PLLEASE GO BACK TI BEING A cooking Channel
So sad to see the Food Network going the way of so many shows that are on now. Instead of maintaining dignity, intelligence and credibility in their programming, they have stooped to the crass, mindless and raucous "entertainment" that is permeating the air waves now. Celebrity Food Fight, with manufactured Grade Z talentless "celebrities" acting like idiots. And the current Food Network Star? What was once a delightful show to watch has morphed into The Bobby & Giada Show, with Giada wearing rejects from Project Runway while she giggles like a school girl, and Bobby trying desperately to look like he's actually laughing uproariously, when he really looks like a drop out from the Ajax School of Acting. And it's apparent Tregaye is the chosen one to be crowned winner. If the Food Network was looking for the nastiest, most spiteful and mean spirited person to win the coveted title, they finally did something right. Tregaye can cook, yes, but for God's sake, isn't there more to it than that? There have been other less than stellar contestants on, but Tregaye tops them all. The smart-mouthed ghetto talk, the disparaging jabs at the others, and the arrogant, haughty attitude is a disgrace, and the very idea that the Food Network would even consider this person to actually have her own show is a testament to how far this network has fallen. Julia Child is surely rolling in her grave.
Did anyone at fn here tregaye's fat girl comment to erin. Edit people. You did away with Paul dean for being honest and apologized for her words but yet tregay can get away with making rude comments. Double standard? This is a form of being a bully. Erin get yourself an attorney and Sue the heck out of all of them. For heaven sakes giada cover up we are all tired of seeing your boobs. This program is rated G? Being a bully, foul language and cleavage.
What you said is so very true, Primrose Cat.
I may be an old codger but I truly feel I'm open minded and welcoming of positive change. But as you mentioned, Food network has gone the way of the other obnoxious reality shows. Surgically enhanced women and men who don't seem to contribute a thing to society and yet are admired for their nastiness and drama. And FN is no different. It has nothing to do with cooking anymore and as you said, Julia Child must be rolling over in her grave.
As someone who came from a long line of family who loved to cook, loved to share meals, pass on their knowledge and were also willing to learn from others, this is so sad to me. It's a reflection on what's "in" now.
When I see our formerly wonderful Food Network caving into this nonsense it is even sadder. That channel used to be a welcome reprieve from daily stress and was wonderful to calmly watch very special chefs prepare meals. No longer. And I will no longer support the laziness of whomever at that network is promoting this disrespectful garbage and allowing it to continue.
I wont get nasty but I don't like your new lineup...chopped..kitchen.....dinners drive ins and dives. Showing the same shows (DD&D ) or Chopped for hours isn't keeping me or a lot of other viewers watching.
I loved the ladies who taught us how to cook including Paula Deen. You have messed up and you are loosing viewers
Love Food Network but you Have some In My opinion some Terrible People doing shows!
The Kitchen is a joke!!!!!!
The worst are Jeff and Marcilla!
Jeff is a Joke and don't watch His show!
He adds nothing to your Network!
Who the hect is Marscilla?
On Next Food network Star Giada is a Total Bitch!
We stopped watching show just because of her!!!!!!!!!
She is only on because of her Name and her Mouthful of Teeth!
She was Born with a Silver Spoon in her Mouth and you as a Network Feel for it!
Use to Love your network when real people cooking instead of the Beautiful People!
Goodbye Food Network!
I love the kitchen, I never miss it. I have used lots of the recipes, and I love Jeff mauro. He is so funny, and cute!
Why do you have stupid shows instead of real cooking shows where we learn many things? Who is in charge? Don't you care about your viewers? There are other good shows on other channels which we now watch because they are interesting and they teach good things.
Put Ina back on at an appropriate time. Listen to your viewers!!! She is one of the best.
Unfortunately, the Food Network has jumped the shark with their ridiculous new shows. And the current Food Network Star show has jumped the whole ocean of sharks. Bobby and Giada both look and act like ten year old clowns with Giada's stupid high-pitched squeaky forced "laughter" and Bobby right there with his forced guffaws. Not to mention how very tacky Giada looks with her cleavage almost falling out of her dress!!. And it is very obvious they plan to crown that trashy, arrogant, nasty, stuck-u, ghetto-talking gutter snipe Tregaye, going so far as to tell her the crown is "hers to lose"!!! I guess they will just go through the motions now of kicking off all the other remaining contestants. The Food Network Star show has gone so far into the dumpster it is not worth watching, and, in the famous words of Mr. Wonderful on Shark Tank, Tregaye is dead to me. It is very obvious they have already decided to make the nasty obnoxious Tregaye the new face of the Food Network. Shame on them! It used to be a network worth watching. Now it is a joke!!
I love wanted erin to win, she is just great. I agree, it's the bobby and giada show, not cool at all. Not watching another moment
I can't believe erin got ousted, while bobby insists on keeping ana, who is inept. I'm not watching another minute. And while I am at it, I am totally sick of scott conant and his ego and rudeness, in case he doesn't know, lots of us can cook pasta, he isn't the only one.
Where is Ina and Rachael Ray? I don't like watching these marathon shows and competition shows.Please bring back Ina and Rachael Ray.Also please give Erin from food network star her own baking show.I think it would be really good.
Great idea for Erin! She is bursting with personality, is a fabulous baker, and I would LOVE to see her every week.
I was hoping Erin would win she is my favorite.I really hope they give her a baking show.Do they even read our ideas on here?
