Dinner: Impossible! Presented by The No-New-Ideas Food Network

I didn't think the idea behind this show was all that original the first time around, but somehow, it seemed to fit the personality of the first -- what was his name? you know, that Brit braggart who didn't always tell the truth -- host. But the Mission Impossible theme seems to be something that the powers-that-be at the FN are enamored of, so I'm wondering... Is someone in power at FN the writer/producer or otherwise connected with the original MI network series? I mean, even Bobby Flay has had it foisted on him in his Throwdown show. Don't get me wrong. I DID like the original "Mission: Impossible." Watched it regularly. But I thought it was too gimmicky for a really interesting show about food. Top that with that what's-his'name guy as its host, and it really washed it for me.

So WHY WHY WHY are they saddling Iron Chef Michael Symon with such an albatross? I really like this guy. His food chops are terrific, and I'd listen to a half hour show of him just laughing. He's contagious!

And I think he has earned better.

And deserves better.

SHAME on Food Networ!.
