    Mine would be on Chopped, and I know this is just for TV/entertainment purposes, but they ALWAYS have to say something nice and mean about every dish.

    "The flavors, presentation, and preparation are perfect... but the kale is a little too soft."
    "This is a complete disaster, meat is burned, potatoes are undercooked... great flavor though."

    In the history of Chopped, there has never been a single meal that was just outright good or bad?!?

    Chopped, cutting to a commercial BEFORE the reveal, plus two of the male judges are a$$ holes, but the host Ted Allen is a little springy for me
    Tyler Florence..."Funtastic...
    Ina Garten, "how easy was that...?"
    I love Bobby Flay and Giada, but Elton Brown, well he's Elton Brown.
    And if I see one more Iron Chef sweat in his food, uggg

    My problem is with the show Dinner at Tiffani's. Tiffani Thiessen is actually clothed in the show. Not how I want to watch her cooking. She needs a show on SkineMax.

    I am the Monkey King, I can do Anything.

    You have 10 minutes to cook a root vegetable, and you BOIL it?

    There needs to be a rule in the dessert round: no Napoleons, no bread pudding.

    Gotta agree with the vitriol directed toward Chopped.

    "Prepare an entree using Ho-Hos, tortilla chips, clams, Bacardi 151 and motor oil. You have 10 minutes."

    Combine the above with ***hole judges, artificially pumped-up suspense and just the whole "competition" format in general, and the result is something even less than "Chewing gum for the eyes." This type of show is the penultimate example of the worst content on television, only exceeded by "Reality TV." Both genres only exist to show the people on screen in a state of discomfort, augmented by their displays of overweening ego in the interview segments. It's LCD TV.

    This programming style has overtaken virtually every channel, in the manner of sewage steadily flooding a basement when the soil pipe gets blocked.
