Food Network's classic shows online

orezscu | Mar 12, 2007 12:20 AM

I just saw a FN ad for their "classic" shows - old clips available exclusively online. After being tempted by an afro-topped Emeril and a Straight-out-of-Sixteen Candles Bobby Flay, I went online, but there are only four clips...a 1998 Batali one being the only FN chef clip of any prominence.

The link they showed on TV, just redirects to their splash page. To see the clips, go to and click on "classics" or whatever.

No old Flay, no Emeril...wonder why this thing launched so sloppily.

Either way, I hope it's evidence of market research based on backlash over their continued dumbing-down, and they'll see interest in a "classics" segment in their cable programming.
