Planet Green Means Loss of Some Cooking Shows

I had no idea the Planet Green channel which just launched yesterday, Wednesday, was going to kill the Discovery Home Channel. I thought it was just going to be a new channel added to the Discovery lineup.

Now I'm sad. It means yeah we're supposed to get a new "Emeril Green" show sometime this month, but it also means -- and I was not expecting this -- that we've lost all the Canadian and other food shows that used to be on the Home Channel.

Goodbye License to Grill with host Rob Rainford. Along with Bobby Flay's shows his made for the two best griiling and BBQ shows around!

Goodbye Cooking in Brooklyn, which was quirky but original

Goodbye Chef at Home with Michael Smith (I really enjoyed this show) mind you they were too stupid to buy any of the last three seasons of his show so we kept watching ones from 2004 and 2005, but I liked them anyhow.

Goodbye Inner Chef with Marcus Samuelsson

Goodbye that show with Kylie Kwong -- the one show I will not miss -- her voice was grating and sorry, but she specialized in Australian meets Chinese food ... you want to talk about two cuisines who's ingredients she used that you never heard of before and will never find here in the States! If you could find the Chinese ones, you'd never find the Aussie ones.
