I was flicking through the TV channels the other day and stopped on Cooking Channel because there was a new show on that I had never seen. I must say that "Bitchin' Kitchen" is, without a doubt, the worst cooking show on TV. It very well may be the worst show on all of TV, right up there with the worst soap operas. The host is incredibly annoying, and the food looks like it's from Sandra Lee's reject recipes. If you see this show on, either watch it, or smack yourself in the face with a ballpeen hammer. The result will be about the same.

Haven't seen the show, Tyler. But based on the promos I'd have to agree with your assessment.

I wonder what idiot decided that those trailers would encourage me to watch the show?

Agreed.  Upon seeing the promos my general consensus was that I'd rather cut my face off than endure 30 minutes of that.  Thank you, Tyler for confirming my initial assessment.

The show's name is off-putting.  I have not watched, nor do I intend to.  Someone with more money than class probably thought this would be a great concept.  If the program is anything like the promos,  it can only be described as "trashy".

Nadia Giosia.  She's apparently Italian and speaks with a farrago of accents.  In one two minute promo she's dressed as a highlighted Elvira, then Madonna-gone-wrong(er), then Vampire/dead woman, then dons a bedazzled tank top with gaudy costume jewelry and painted fingernails throughout.  Humor is apparently the pull of the show along with her physical appearance.  All that other garbage is an absolute distraction from whatever food concoctions she plans to make.  Some men may disagree but in my opinion it's not a pleasant distraction.

I liked Elvira as Elvira. Great rack and B-movie hostess, the schtick made sense. I don't need a costume for a cooking show.

 Exactly! 

Contrary to the way my earlier post sounds I am not, in fact, a man.  I just meant some men might disagree that she's a not a sufficiently pleasant distraction from the food. 

Having cleared that up, Elvira was indeed great.  She was goth before vampire sagas and emo teens made it mainstream.

I watched this show when I had insomnia one night last week.  I'm glad I saw it because now I can honestly say it is the WORST cooking show I've ever seen.  Insipid and tacky don't even come close to describing it.  She blathered on, making references to her man and being a tough broad so much that I can't believe I watched the whole thing.  Still, it didn't put me to sleep.  In fact, it gave me indigestion.

My Gawd! you all take yourselves so seriously.  Does everyone have to be bland and boring to be taken seriously?  Lighten up.  Enjoy the comedy and try a few recipes.  They're good.

Can it really be worse than that infomercial for the GT Express101, or the Magic Bullet or so many things by Ron Popiel?

I was watching tv this evening and I came across this show. I have to say she is the single most annoying person I have ever seen on tv and could only stomach 15 minutes of her before I switched channels and will NEVER watch her "show" again. On a good note I did discover that I have a second food channel and now how some better choices of shows to watch concerning cooking.

 The worst show ever!, ????,  Are you kidding me.  This is a great and inventive show I watch a lot of Food Network and it is a great take on cooking shows.  And she's a good Canadian Girl,  Lighten up and go watch Geada.    -Steven G, Toronto.

Either 'Bitchin Kitchen' or 'Extra Virgin' are the worst cooking shows I have ever seen.  Even Sandra Lee is better. (not by much though) These shows make Rachel Ray seem like a cooking goddess.

When the Cooking Channel first came out, I had high hopes. The Food Network had become mostly reality shows, and the Cooking Channel soon followed suit. Of course it's owned and ran by the Food Network, so what was I thinking?

Funny, I love Extra Virgin.  Watch it and even tape it if I am going to miss it.  Or watch several in one siting.  Love it when they go to or are in Tuscany.
 

And to comment on the program that "BIGSteve" likes, no wonder he likes it and I don't./img/vbsmilies/smilies/lever.gif

People, you need to lighten up for Christ sake. This isn't a gourmet cooking show, it's a light, funny, edgy show for the average Joe. 

If you want a froo, froo high end cooking show, watch reruns of Julia Child.
