Lucky 13 for Big Daddy McCargo?
As predicted here earlier, the Food Network has decided to go ahead and order 13 more episodes of Big Daddy’s Kitchen despite poor reviews and less than electric ratings. Though the number 13 may have proven lucky for host Aaron McCargo Jr. many believe that the same cannot be said for Food Network viewers. The show is in a timeslot targeted at the 327 people not watching the NFL on Sundays. Meanwhile, NFNS runner-up Adam Gertler’s new show Will Work For Food is set to premiere soon in primetime.
Hmm, Aaron wins despite poor fan interest and his show gets buried by the greatest television juggernaut in history and Adam comes in second and gets a show in primetime. The spin is making me dizzy. For more on this and other Food Network scuttlebutt I encourage you to join Internet starlet Sarah East on her webcast FN Crazy. But be forewarned, if you are a Rachael Ray fan, you may not enjoy Sarah’s particular form of wit.
