    Looks like Anthony Bourdain is joining the ranks of the tv chefs that he mocks so much.

    I can't stand him, he gets so annoying so fast on No Reservations.

    That dude sold out on Day Two. I don't blame him, but it does run counter to his affected persona.

    I think his move to CNN will be a mistake, and this just compounds it. :thumbsdown:

    I'll wait and see before judging. He has been right on most things regarding "food television". This venture seems questionable. However, he has never said a bad word about Lawson.

    He "sold out" when he stopped being a real working chef and got his show "Cook's Tour" on Food Network.

    NTTAWWT. People like to get paid.

    Let's see. My choices are to spend 12-14 hours a day working in a 120 degree kitchen, with lots of other sweaty guys, for relatively minimal wage. Or, travel the world staying in luxury hotels, eating the best food on the planet and making tv money. Tough choice.

    I still enjoy all of his shows.
