You should also check out NO Reservations on the Travel Channel. Anthony Bourdain is as fun to watch as he is bitter and smart.

+1 on "No Reservations," Anthony Bourdain is the best thing to happen to foodies in a long time. He possesses the perfect blend of knowledge, inquisitiveness, irreverence, humor and sheer enthusiasm. He's witty, opinionated and somewhat caustic, but also refreshingly candid and honest. I'd kill to have his job!

Mike, as long as you're getting into the Food Channel, look for Bourdain's older show, "A Cook's Tour." Similar format, but just a half hour.

I sort of preferred "A Cook's Tour" over "No Reservations" but yeah, some of the best food-centric tv right there

The old "Iron Chef" rocks.

Two words: Giada DeLaurentis!

I'm a big fan of No Reservations as well ..... Tony B seems like he'd be fun to get wasted with.

Edit: And I can't watch Dinner Impossible. His enormous biceps make me feel like less of a man.

Good Eats is great. Something weird is going on with Giada, though. I think she's a robot.

Old-school Iron Chef rocks. Fine Living just started broadcasting it recently, The Bean and I cuddle up and watch it every night after dinner. The only show on Food Network I watch with any regularity these days is Good Eats; they used to have people like Mario Batelli (that his name?) that I liked a lot better.

My FAVORITE food show these days is Gordon Ramsey's Kitchen Nightmares, on BBA America. I can't stand the Top Chef ripoff he does for American TV; the show he does inm Britain is awesome. Basically, he goes into failing restaurants and kicks their asses into gear. Very funny, very profane, and I love how he's always emphasizing just quality and freshness and railing against pretension.

For food-TV pr0n, though... you've GOT to seek out Nigella Lawson.

I love Good Eats. A friend turned me on to that show, and I'm currently looking to find out how I can get copies of all of his downloaded episodes. 80 GB he says!

+1 on Giada.

I like Rachael Ray too. As perky as she is, I still think she's got a good attitude on food, and her recipes usually look very tasty. She could be my 30 minute meal, for $40 a day!

You won't have to see his biceps much longer. He's been canned! I've read they have found a replacement and will expand the show to one hour.

I like Nigella. Nice rack of lamb. Giada is all teeth and head on a stick - she is just a bit weird looking to me. I used to like that blonde they had on "How To Boil Water" - Jack something, but that show is gone.
