I have been watching Food Network for years and never considered writing to you until now.
On your show Buddy vs. Duff, is it that important to your shareholders to air such arrogance and rudeness that Buddy continues to portray?
I cannot believe you continue airing this, especially when one of the bakers (Duff Goldman) has made you ALOT of money.
Do what's right and stop teaching young viewers that being an obnoxious person is the way to get what you want in life, especially if you feel you're better skilled than the other person.
I agree Buddy is an ass and I stopped watching the show because of his arrogance.

If you have something to say, then say it. Nobody's stopping you. Or is meaningless criticism all you can manage? You must be a sad individual. Make yourself a sandwich.
Meaningless criticism? A little too sensitive?

I absolutely love Ree Drummond and her show, but every time she says the Merck, I cringe. A Merlin is a wig made from pubic hair for the pubic area after nude models shaved that area...also used off men's wigs many years ago. I America, we have come to call a Merlin a Merck. Therefore, while many people do not know what this is, there are some who do. It can be offensive; I think it's kind of funny, but you might want to consider this.
It's actually called a merkin, not a merlin.
Just saw dinners drive ins and dives in hawaii. I believe it was season 27 episode 3? I was very upset that food network interviewed majority white people. Those restaurants must not be that good. Asians are the majority in hawaii. Food network should interview Asians , especially when talking about Asian food like ramen! We liberals are forgetting what being liberals are all about. Equality for everyone.
Buddy and Duff. I was totally disgusted with Buddy's childish behavior on the first episode. The second was some better but I not sure if I want to watch anymore. Buddy is like a spoiled child who didn't get his way. He resents every comment made about Duff. Duff is a kinder person and accepts what is being critiqued. Duff should win for his talent and his adult behavior.
I really think they cheat the African American people to much
Trolls are not welcome here
Sharon, how so?
Sharon, ANY cheating is TOO MUCH! That being said, we have covered this false accusation ad nauseum. 'nuf said! PERIOD!
I do agree with you on that. When re-rum shows of the pioneer woman run Saturday and Sunday atleast 3 hours, really.
Well Sharon, if you are going to say something stupid like that- I can say something just as stupid like if the African American people would have more interest in the culinary world, then reproducing out of wedlock.......
Do you see how stupid we both sound?
There are great chefs and cooks of every creed and color on Food Network.
Hey, Lynne your comments was not food related . But, realistic African Americans was basically the first cook's, cooking some of the best downhome culinary meals that you ever tasted. So you and Sharon let fest off of positive energy in the field of food network.
Lynne what cooking got to do with reproducing out of wedlock.
I was going for a stupid thing to say about African Americans being cheated.
Sharon said something totally stupid- so I was trying to say something equally stupid.
If she watches Food Network much at all, she would see all different creeds and colors.
I'm just really sick and tired of people complaining about not enough of this or that, when it is right there..... all they have to do is look, and if they don't like what they see, then change the friggin channel.
If she wants more black entertainment, show after show, she can tune into BET network,
It might not be a food or cooking channel- by they do have some great shows.
Again what do bet got to do with cooking. I really think Lynne should watch bet to learn different creed an color
Surprise Yogi- I do watch BET, I also watch ESPN, but I do enjoy watching FN.
And with my age and background I have had plenty of living with different creeds and colors.
Thank God white people don't have babies or even have sex except to reproduce. White people don't do anything for fun.
Please tell us how they cheat African Americans? I'm not in favor of most of the network shows these days but cheating African Americans is definitely not happening on any of the shows, so don't go starting that rumor please, it's not true
Yes they are. Name one African American cooking show as of today that is not a re--run from years ago. Please tell me why there no Latinos are African Americans cooking shows on more then others?
No prime time cooking shows
Sorry, that's not racial discrimination, it's discrimination against original programming.
Oh and BTW, I'm with Lynne on the "Stupid Statement" issue. She predicated her "Stupid Statement" by calling it out for what is was, in advance. And her point was well made. There is 0 evidence that Food Network discriminates on a racial basis. Yet, Lynne and I, who have contributed to this forum for a long time now, continually find ourselves in the position of defending Food Network from blatantly ignorant accusations from idiots who come up in here playing the race card when they are obviously incorrect. That type of ignorance actually diminishes the fact that racism unfortunately exists in this country and must be addressed and eradicated. In my view, we are not going anywhere unless we all go together. That being said, accusing Food Network of Racial Discrimination is akin to the boy crying wolf. If you overplay it or use it in obviously incorrect situations, you dilute the cause you are trying to correct.
So, to make my long story even longer. It you newbies to this forum think you're going to come up in here and make stupid, ignorant and demonstrably false accusations such as Racial Discrimination against Food Network, you'd damn well better be able to back up your accusations with facts. Because ignorance isn't a bird that flies around here!
LHM! I guess I put that one to bed. Over 24 hrs and no response!
So, let me get back, more specifically, to Yogi's point. I totally agree that Food Network does not seem to have any original programming featuring "minority" chefs. But, I want to extend that to another level. Food Network is SEVERELY LACKING in original programming of ANY sort. That's why I previously stated, "it's not racial discrimination, it's discrimination against original programming."
I used to watch and record HOURS of Food Network shows when they had The Neelys, Aaron McCargo, Potty Mouth Paula Deen (Reformed), Sandra Lee, Rachael Ray, Ina Garten, Aaron Sanchez, Marcella Valladolid and even meanie Chef Anne, et al. They represented virtually the entire spectrum and they TAUGHT US HOW TO COOK! Now, I'd be surprised if I catch 1 or 2 hrs per week. It's just not worth my time and effort. There are plenty of other options as far as television entertainment and I can Google and recipe I want if I don't care to watch TV.
But, that's Food Network's fault and it has NOTHING to do with Racial Discrimination. It's due to the negligence and stupidity of Food Network Management in understanding what we, their viewing audience, wants to see. AND IT'S NOT INCESSANT RERUNS AND MARATHONS!
George I see you and Lynne vote it for Trump cooking channel
Yogi, now that was the most ignorant thing you have said time his point. Did you taken the time to read my previous posts where I agreed with most of what you were saying? NO! Otherwise you wouldn't be spouting ignrant, foolish and arguably STUPID comments about who and what your simple mind leads you to believe what I am about. In actuality, I loathe Trump! I hate him and all he stands for. I can't wait until he gone in less than 2 years if that long. Did you actually read my post where I personally believe that we, as a country, are NOT going anywhere unless we all go together. Yet, in your feeble, simple minded brain, you somehow derive that I am a Trump Supporter. You're a damned fool if that's how you process your thoughts. People like you are dangerous. You're the type that starts arguments then runs ftom.them.when you can't defend the real that came out of your mouth.
Now, if you're actually any type of real.person, and not a total ignorant dumass, hater, go back and read my posts. Then come back up in here and apologize for being WRONG, INCONSIDERATE AND IGNORANT!
First of all George I'm not ignorant ,secondly I ain't never run from nothing. How can we all go forward when the African American communities is five steps behind. An the only African American cook on a show is Sunny Anderson right now. i don't no was food channel u are watching, George name me one African American cook who got there on show as of February 10, 2019
Yes Yogi, you are blatantly ignorant because despite me repeating myself over and over, simply to help you understand reality, you still ignorantly miss the point. You'll have to forgive me as I'm trying to translate your mumbo jumbo gibberish into intelligent English as I respond to your nonsense.
Next, I believe you when you say, "I ain't never run from nothing." You actually demonstrate my point by continuing to defend the indefensible.
It is impossible to name any African American Cooks who have original programming today BECAUSE THAT WOULD BE IMPOSSIBLE! THERE ARE NONE! AND, I can't name ANY HISPANIC COOKS WITH ORIGINAL PROGRAMMING EITHER, BECAUSE THERE ARE NONE!. That being said DOES NOT PROVE THAT YOU ARE CORRECT, because Food Network Management and Programming is as stupid and ignorant as you are. It is NOT due to RACIAL DISCRIMINATION! It is because Food Network has some issue with original programming itself. Whether it is because they are trying to save money by airing incessant reruns and marathons since they are cheaper than developing new, original shows. Or, they are are ignorant, stupid and lazy because they actually believe that their audiences will continue to watch Food Network shows without original programming. I don't know WHY they do what they do because I believe they are wrong and they are losing the core audiences that built Food Network into what it was in it's Glory Days.
Those were the days when there were African Americans, Caucasians, Hispanics, Asians, Italians, Males, Females, Sweet and Nice, Mean and Snooty, EVERYBODY running the gambit of talented Cooks, Chef's and Celebrities educating, teaching and DEMONSTRATING us how to cook things we never dreamed we could do on our own. But now, they try to force us to watch Game Shows, Contests, Reruns and Marathons of shows we've already seen multiple times and don't care to watch any more. So, we turn the channel because they are too stupid, lazy and ignorant to give us what we wanted to watch in the first place...the full gambit of talented Chefs, Cooks and Celebrities, of ALL ORIGINS, NATIONALITIES, COLORS, RACES, SEXES, RELIGIONS, ETC who educate, teach and demonstrate for us to learn how to cook.
I personally would not take issue if we went for days without seeing Caucasian Hosts and watching Minorities demonstrate their talents if it involved new and original programming. I would actually turn back to watch Food Network and watch because EVERY group of Chefs, Cooks and even Celebrities have talented representatives worth watching and learning from. Hell, I'd even watch the prissy Ice Skater if he could teach me how to cook something new.
But, that being said, I'm NOT GOING TO SIT BY QUIETLY AND LISTEN TO IGNORANT PEOPLE BLAME FOOD NETWORK'S PROGRAMMING ISSUES BY LABELING THEM AS RACIAL DISCRIMINATION! BECAUSE, YOGI, THAT IS THE DEFINITION OF IGNORANCE!
My point exactly George, thank you and u r stupid. You proved my point..... Lol You need to run ignorance?
Laugh all you want! You have no point to prove! Your points are not logical. And, they make no sense, even if it was possible to translate your gibberish into intelligent sentences. The point I have proved is that there is no Racial Discrimination here. You need to move on.
You know George, it's to bad that FN won't monitor this site and get rid of trolls like Yogi and Sharon who just want to cause trouble.
There are those who won't, or can't be happy with anything, and have to find something to complain about. And screaming racial bias seems to be the go to for many people.
And perhaps English is not Yogi's first language. I knew a Yogi years ago, but his name was Jaroslav, and he was not from our country.
Lynne u sound like u is afraid of Engery. You brought out a comment like a troll and not a person with culinary arts and crafts skills . I'm here and I will leave my Engery and thoughts to food channel comments..
Is it to bad or too bad? That little word makes a big difference.
You have proved my point!!!! I never claim racial discrimination , I just made a quote about progress of moving forward in the food industry dealing with certain groups of people . All of your replys was lackadaisical and un energetic to the food world, let fest off of positive and realistic Engery.
They are are ignorant, speaking of gibberish.
Very well put George. I've been out of sorts fighting the creeping crud.
It's good to see an intelligent post to combat those who aim to make trouble.
Lynne thank your food channel for more combat, but only in food issues.
On Lord! It's still here.
