    The live show was much better. They kinda hacked that together from both shows, and I agree it didn't come together perfectly. They cut out the whole sequence when the Good Eats Players came out and chatted with Ted for a bit.

    The trivia game was terrible. That blonde lady on the end was super annoying. I was surprised to see it was the same "super" fans in both shows (the trivia segment that made it on TV must have been from the evening show because it was not the questions I saw). They must have told her to turn it down some because she was terrible in the part I saw live. :mad: She was still annoying, but not as much in the version that aired.

    I saw myself on TV a few times though ... mostly my back, but could make out my front at the very end. :cool:

    Agree. I knew we were in trouble when he led off with the 'banter with the band' routine. I gave up shortly after the index cards.

    Yeah, that was horrible. I kept watching, waiting for it to get better, but it just kept getting worse and worse. Ted Allen looked totally awkward, like "why the hell am I here?", being forced to play second banana to an over-caffeinated Alton Brown.

    I'm wondering if this is because most of the video used seemed to be from the second showing. The show I was at seemed very spontaneous and unscripted. The second show would have had to follow the first more closely in order to make editing easier so they were repeating a lot of the banter, making it more "scripted."

    They cut out a lot of good stuff too, but since the live show was over two hours and the TV show was only 40+ minutes, I guess that's to be expected.

    I'll check if the show appears on Hulu. Hulu carries a lot of FoodTV and Cooking Channel shows. Enough that we lost interest in Sling - We don't care about being current other than the live news.

    AB has said he's been told that episodes will be for purchase on iTunes/Amazon after airing.

    Is the Cooking Channel carried by anyone, or is it just an internet channel?

    It's a cable channel.. Spectrum (old Time Warner Cable) carries it in my market. But I have to pay extra to get it. Its not included with all the other channels I get. Pretty sure its on DirecTV too

    Both DirecTV and DirecTV Now have it in at least some of their tiers.

    Here in the LA market, Spectrum has it on the middle/upper tiers.

    Hoping Cooking Channel Canada carries it... I think for us Cooking Channel came with Food Network.

    Comcast in South Florida has it but it's on a higher tier than I have, of course. :(

    It seems they are moving a few shows I’d actually watch from the Food Channel to the upper tier Cooking channel...which I’d never pay for. oh well...

    I get it via Comcast, no idea what tier it is. Steak show is on my Tivo todo list for Monday, I think.
