Are we really outnumbered?

With respect to chowhounds request to stop bashing chefs on the food network, I am hoping to start a discussion on why the food network has decided to go in this direction. It seems like 3/4 of the new programs focus around the theme of improving already prepared foods. Every other host is using a can opener more than a chefs knife. Since the channel has been around for a while, it seems as though they have information that the majority of their viewers are not serious cooks. I'm not sure why there are so many people who don't cook watching the food network. Are there enough serious cooks to support a few shows? Or, am I just being naive. It really doesn't matter if serious cooks are in the majority, because you can't sell them as much. They want to make it themselves.
