I don't remember either of those, but The Taste *has* been rerunning on Sunday afternoons, at least locally, for most weeks. (It wasn't scheduled for this weekend, at least a day or two ago -- even with lots of tuners, I'm currently fairly low on space again, so sometimes manually reschedule shows to a later run so I watch some other stuff in the meantime to make space.)
This has happened for other shows, e.g. Shark Tank, but often was NOT the same episode as aired in prime time that week.. For The Taste, it has been. (i.e. new episode runs on Tuesday and reruns Sun afternoon.)
I never knew how this "network Sunday afternoon" thing came about. Except for sports, networks very rarely run anything out of prime time (plus, don't they actually have a limit to the # of hours of stuff they can show?)
