Racheal Ray's voice alone is beyond irritating.
Ditto that one!

I'm just glad I don't know who these people are.
Alton Brown is a little annoying but his show is informative.
Bobby Flay is very annoying, but the guy has skills, so at least that counts for something. I forgot the name of that cooking challenge show he does, but he should be ashamed of himself for agreeing to that P.O.S.
Rachel Ray. She's not a real chef. She's above and beyond anything a "TV chef" could strive for. I've tried a couple of her recipes, and they were okay. If all you want is quick, passable meals, then Rach is for you. You'll have to endure her annoying personality and EVOO and Yummo bulls**t, but her show may be of benefit to someone.
Paula Deen... it's hard to slam her because of her story, but let's do it anyway. I can deal with the "y'alls", but the cackle is beyond annoying, and it seems to take up at least 15 minutes of her 30 minute show. I haven't bothered to watch any of her new shows, because her cooking show is basically filled with heart attack recipes. I didn't watch the show much, but I can't recall ever seeing anything that made me want to duplicate it.
I can't seem to pick between Ray and Deen. It's a shame Sandra Lee isn't in the poll. She'd get my vote in a split second. How does this person have a cooking show of any kind? Why is she on tv?
Overall, BLoTTo is correct. FoodTV is a disaster now. Giada's cooking show is the only thing really worth watching now. Mario Batali's show seems to always be on at obscure hours, which really is a shame. I used to watch FoodTV quite a bit, if only to have it on in the background. Of the food television show, I really only watch No Reservations and Top Chef now.

Guido hairdo is ultra-highlighted and styled with MUCH product; Sunglasses spun to the back; earrings; ornate double goatee; sideburns; necklaces; rings; watch; bracelets; SWEAT BAND AT ELBOW; tattoos; wallet chain; and/or man purse; probably something I've missed; and since it's TV and we can't smell I'll bet anyone $1000 that his Drakkar Noir or Derek Jeter cologne is SO FRIGGIN STRONG that you can smell him in your car even when he's driving the car in front of you.
All that said, yeah he's OK. :)
Rob, excellent post. Agreed from beginning to end.

And Nigella Lawson..... I do like her, and not to go male pig here, but DAMN she's got a GIFRIGGINNORMOUS rack. :bigheart:
I have to acronyms for you
Alton is cool! I think 30 minutes is about the limit on him though.
I don't have a problem with Paula.
Whoever said Barefoot Contessa, you suck. Ina rulez.
Bobby Flay is just an ass, pure and simple.
Rachel was ok in the beginning, but the last few years since she's been coked up, I can't handle it.
I will personally kill Sandra Lee on sight if I ever run into her.
Giada has always been awesome. And it's DiLaurentiis, as in granddaughter of Dino, the producer. http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0209569/
AND she trained at Le Cordon Bleu in Paris.
Agree with every single point, 100%.
