    This is called Worst Chefs and not Worst Cooks?

    Well, if anyone has the worst chefs in America, it's The Food Network.

    It's not "worst *chefs* in America", it's "worst *cooks* in America".
    It's a good show.

    Call me crazy but I still maintain cooking shows should be about cooking.
    Cooking that is, food that people want to eat. Watching a bunch of boobs
    throw perfectly good ingredients around and turn them into something the dog
    wouldn't eat is just dumb. And wasteful.

    I just plugged my cable TV back in and starting flipping, and lo and
    behold...

    I watched it fro about 10 minutes. Why would somebody want to watch a
    show about people failing at cooking?

    Easy, sqwish. You'll blow another gasket.

    First thing that comes to mind: Watching incompetent yutzes on TV is a
    realization of listening to your prattle on Usenet.

    Any more questions, please submit via email to Food Network.

    Why do people watch the Sunday morning shows with politicians talking, when
    they so clearly have failed. Why do people look at a train wreck? Hard to
    figger.

    Here's what I wonder... How could they be sure they actually have bad
    cooks? Couldn't someone fake being a bad cook?

    There is an opportunity for learning in this show. Ann Burrell and
    Bobby Flay show the novice cooks how to prepare an item. The novice
    cooks try to duplicate the dish and also do a riff on it. For other
    viewers who may be as challenged in the kitchen, watching others make
    mistakes and learning from them will be helpful and maybe empowering.

    Not everyone is like you, born with flawless taste, cooking
    technique, plating and style.

    Give some other folks a break. Television shows can't be designed
    just for you. There are plenty of people out there that literally
    know nothing about food and food preparation. They may gain courage
    from a show like this and try something on their own.

    I guess you have a point there. Except that the politicians still
    think they're best thing since sliced bread. OTOH, The FoodTV
    contestants KNOW and fully admit they suck.

    It's not really something that keeps my attention though. I did have it on
    tonight but I sure wasn't riveted to it.

    It just reinforces the concept in my mind that FN is another "comedy"
    channel. The pratfall is the oldest joke in the world.

    It's a good show if you like it. I hate it.

    It's "worst cooks," not "worst chefs."
