Has the Food Network Jumped the Shark?

I will openly admit that I used to enjoy watching the food network on TV. That is no longer the case.

There are far too many silly, well, actually stupid contest type shows on the Food Network now. One of the worst shows on the Food Network is Cutthroat Kitchen. This show has nothing to do with cooking skills and has everything to do with being mean and ridiculous.

Basically anything that Guy Fieri is in is also ridiculous. Their show Grocery Store Wars or whatever it is called is a perfect example of how stupid the Food Network has become.

I wonder what happened to the shows that they used to have where they actually talked about food.  What about shows where they showed real live chefs? Shows where they had people who could actually inform your kitchen skills. No more. It’s all just ridiculous or stupid contest type game show baloney.

I suppose we knew it was bound to happen. After all look at the channel TLC. In case you don’t know TLC stands for the learning channel. This was the channel meant to educate the youth of North America. Yes, this is the same channel that developed and shows Honey Boo-Boo. What about MTV? The channel that was the frontier for cutting edge music videos? That channel doesn’t  show music videos anymore.

Yes okay, I do occasionally tune in to see Guy Fieri touring around to diners drive-ins and dives. I do enjoy that but overall the food network? You need to go back to the drawing board and have a look at who you are. Just what are you?
