The cooking channel - your thoughts?

I'm really disappointed with it. I feel like its a great way to "expose" people to cooking but not good for more advanced cooks - those that are already familiar with cooking and want to learn about the science of food and more intermediate/advanced techniques. For example, I think Rachael Ray and that semi homemade lady are a total joke. I mean, it does not take anyone with any special qualifications to come up with those recipes.

I love tyler florence, alton, ellie krieger, and alex guarnachelli (cooking loft - which is only on sporadically). The vast majority of the time however, the channel plays a lot of useful programs that have no additive value. How do you all feel about this? I have always wondered why they don't bump up the standards and bring in more shows like tylers and altons. Its really unfortunate...
