So I See the Burp on Cox for the New “Cooking Channel”

…and think,

“Thank GOD!
Floyd (“Another slurp for the cook!”) on Fish! Two Fat Ladies!


If you think that food-oriented television couldn’t get any worse or lowbrow than Sandra Lee’s infamous Kwanzaa cake or the frosted tips of Guy Fieri traveling the nation in search of burgers, burgers and more mediocre burgers, you’re in for a shock: There is much worse programming on the menu.

Replacing the Fine Living network on May 31 will be The Cooking Channel, a spinoff from the Food Network, which is almost singlehandedly responsible for the dumbing down of cooking shows and the introduction of the abhorrent concept of “celebrity chefs.”

The network executives promise that The Cooking Channel will be both “low-key” and “hipper,” but in the same breath touts shows that feature the likes of Mo Rocca and food blogger Lisa Lillien, whose philosophy towards food is so staggeringly unhealthy it makes Paula Deen look like Alice Waters.

    Skyler, you’ll have to excuse miss potty typer. WFMTT is short for “well f@#% me to tears”.
