So after ten years , they finally cancelled Emeril Live. Last live new episode will be on December 11. I think the show was good for a few years, but it definetely ran its course and should have been cancelled probably about 5 years ago.

The music was awful, the audience was awful, and Emeril was annoying. Good riddance.

Alton Brown even says Toast is Good Eats, which apparently means something to this site.

Emril's early shows before the audience were the best ones. Emril live sucked from day one.

I used to like Emeril live for like 2 seasons...Nothing beats the old Iron Chef Japan version, The amercian version sucks moose balls which I bet the Japan one had as the food of the show...

Also one rant I hate that Ray chick. All the fattys at the gym trying to lose the tons have it on as the crawl down the treadmills. I just want to slap them silly.

Thank God...that fat fuck can take his BAM and shove it up his ass. The fact that my mother-in-law loves him makes me hate him that much more.

I don't know if it wound up on Family, but it started on NBC.

You know what - this Emeril Live cancelling actually goes right along with what Anthony Bourdain has talked about before regarding Food Network. He said months ago that Food Network didn't really give a shit anymore about real chefs, it was more about getting (preferably good-looking) personalities who were more entertainers than actual chefs (i.e. Rachael Ray) and that they wanted to basically sell out the individuals who built the network for them.

A few months after he said that, and look what you have now. Mario Batali leaves the network a short while ago, and now Emeril's show cancelled.

At this point, I barely watch the network anymore.

Honestly, the only show I cannot watch is the Barefoot Contessa..just disturbing to watch a woman cook with less hair than me. But I agree all the good chefs are gone.

Bourdain slammed Emeril in the first version of Kitchen Confidential because it was about the personality and the annoyances (sic), however he learned later that the man can actually cook and has a mean right hook. I watched Emeril when it was new, however I probably haven't watched in 7 years. It was long over due for cancellation. However, I did pick up a couple of techniques. Racheal Ray is a fat cunt.



I still want Alton Brown's measuring cups, those things rock.

Actually "The Essence of Emeril" is still a pretty good show. 30 minutes, about 2-4 dishes, and no audience or catch-phrases. The man can fucking cook.

Why do you guys hate Emeril...cuz he is popular?

I actually think Emeril is one of the only good shows on Food network...He makes awesome looking dishes.

The thing with the white rim or the plunger gadget?

I never really watched Emeril, except for his shortlived NBC series, but I remember one time on the show Bill Burr was making fun of him and the audience. It lasted for like 30 seconds but I laughed for days about that.

Yeah, because they applaud every time he uses gaH'lic or alcohol in one of his dishes :)
