I enjoy Diners Drive ins and Dives from Food network, but only as a sort of starting point/reference sort of thing. Guy is uhm, over the top, but decent enough. He doesn't annoy me anywhere near as much as Paula Deen, Rachel Ray, and that other one, the barefoot contessa? The one who lives out on long island and talks like she's got a mouthful of buttah.
I still love Alton Brown, though.
I watch Dinner Impossible, too, but mostly just to consider how I might try to accomplish the same goals he's trying to accomplish. Other than that, I watch more from the Travel Channel. I still really enjoy No Reservations. I can't watch Bizarre Foods, though. I'm sooo wussy sometimes.
(though his Minnesota episode I had NO problem with
Shows like the Neely's and Not Much Homemade (errr, SEMI home...), and there was another one that one of their "stars" was on, "real cooking" or something like that? I really don't like those. And I really enjoyed Emeril when Food TV was on C-Band satellite (back in the mid 90s) and they had this show "How to Boil Water" with him on it, and my husband and I called it "The Guido Show" because he was SUCH a goomba on it. And the rest of their programming was like classic cooking shows from the 50s featuring Betty Crocker stuff. "How to Boil Water" actually TAUGHT you something useful each week, though.
My husband learned how to make stir fry from it. But I don't much like Emeril shows these days.
I miss Graham Kerr and Julia Child from their heydays. I wish someone would take on rerunning all of their shows. ALL OF THEM!!!
