Good post beestunglips.
It's all fine and good what Food Network did in firing PD, but as mentioned earlier, how about some diversity. I remember back in the day shows with hosts of many backgrounds. I think one was the Melting Pot that had hosts from different ethnic and cultural backgrounds and they made some really interesting recipes. I think Aaron Sanchez was in that lineup. The Cooking Channel is a little better, but overall, it's still pretty similar to FN.
