Another sign I need to get a day job and build a DVR: the Rachael Ray Show premiered today. I watched it all except for part of the interview segment with Diane Sawyer because post-nasal drip kicked my butt this morning. I plan to skip tomorrow's interview segment since I couldn't care less about Oprah. It's funny, RR's voice grates on my nerves (too New Yawk) but after years of watching her on the Food Network I feel compelled to watch her new show too.

If they'd bring Ainsley Harriott back to American television, I'd be quite satisfied with network food television programs. (I know Ready Steady Cook is on BBC 2, but it's not on BBC America.)

EVIL about whom? Rachael Ray? Oprah? Ainsley Harriott?

*is confused*

I watch a lot of Food Network during the week -- my favorites are Everday Italian, Good Eats, Iron Chef America, Ace of Cakes, Sugar Rush, any Food Network Challenge involving cookies or cakes (my inner pastry chef wants to be let out more) -- and I miss Ainsley Harriott's US daytime show. I can still imitate his "Let's get ready to cook" dance. (:

I'm in the group who is driven insane by Rachel Ray.

For me, Alton Brown, Ham On The Street, Anthony Bourdain (now on the Travel Channel), and such.

Ah. I like her best at a low volume but her enthusiasm is something I'm working on developing myself. (Not that I want to be a cooking show host; enthusiasm will carry me a long way in Scouting.)

I keep getting distracted and wandering off when I watch Ham on the Street, but I like it.

I would have Anthony Bourdain's babies if the opportunity presented itself.

Yeah, then again, I've known a few people who have had bad experiences at places shes waxed ecstatic about, or know the area far too well (and thus are just appalled at her ignorance and choices).

Enthusiasm is a good thing though.

Thank you for calling me. :-) I worked the overnight the night before so I was all passed out.

No problem! I couldn't remember if I'd given you my number but I had yours so I decided to go ahead and call you. (Score one for personal growth, I'm getting over my avoidance of using the phone!)

Rachael Ray makes watching cooking shoes w/ my mum tolerable. Her voice dun really bother (even if she is a bit too peppy/talkative imo) -- but she's totally hot.
