We Need More Martha Stewart on TV. Really. We do!

Yes. I do realize that Martha is annoying, cloying and a total control freak. We all have our minor faults you know!
However, when I think of how technically precise she is in baking and other good and delightful recipes I've gotten from her over the years, I realize that she is a lot better and more valuable than some may think. Hey--Martha Stewart Egg Nog is a staple at our home on Christmas Day. It's practically my entire diet for that one day a year. I'm really sad though. Since FL network became the Cooking Channel, it has been almost impossible to find any show of hers in my area (philly) anymore. I have heard that the Hallmark Channel carried her program, but every time I channel surf, some sappy movie is aired on HC. Anyway, I was fortunate enough to catch an old Martha Stewart Thanksgiving Special over the weekend and realized that I do miss me my Martha Stewart so much. I miss that condescending voice. I miss her ultimate waspiness even though her roots are a nice working-class polish background. I miss the control. I miss the way she speaks to others and the way you can see her blood boiling when her guests are somewhat "messy".
I really wish one of the cooking networks would bring me my Martha back!!
What say you--you feel the way I do?
