Food Network Programming Query

Bada Bing | Dec 13, 2011 04:36 PM

It's been several years since I watched Food Network at all regularly, but I know that in the trailing off period, I still watched new Good Eats shows, the occasional Bobby Flay thing (I rather liked that Throwdown show for a while), and maybe an Iron Chef America that I stumbled across midway.

Today when I happened to scan the channel offerings for the evening, I see that they are only showing either episodes of Cupcake Wars or Chopped from now (7 p.m.) until 4 in the morning. That seems insane to me. I've never seen either of those shows, don't know why I'd care to, and couldn't watch anything else on Food Network if I wanted to.

Is there any consensus here about what's going on with that channel?

Edit: I've noticed this sort of pattern before, but never really bothered to track the exact time span of such narrow programming. That is, tonight does not seem to me like a highly unusual circumstance...
