My favorites are - Top Chef (loving the all-stars). I also love Hells Kitchen, Chopped, The Next Food Network Stars, The Next Iron Chef.
Sometimes I will watch 30 minute meals. I like the Neely's but sometimes they are a little nauseating.
I tried watching the show about the worse cooks, but I couldn't get into it.
I fell in love with Hell's Kitchen in Canada. Ramsay use to crack me up. I do like The Neely's, haven't hit the nauseating part yet, but I don't get to any one particular show enough anymore to do that.
Some of their recipes look great and, as with others, some I have to take and tweak a different way.
