    That's because TiVo thinks Sunday's hour of Guy Fieri is what you wanted to watch.

    While I love Alton Brown and the whole idea of this show, I am finding that if I’m not interested in what he’s cooking, I get bored.

    I’ve quickly tired of the mirror camera thing. It was novel, but he’s wildly overused it.

    I missed this news, but "Reloaded" was renewed for a second season back in August, before "The Return" premiered.

    The ratings for "The Return" have been disappointing all season, so we'll have to wait and see there. (The Sunday night run is done, but three more Holiday episodes are coming this year.)

    How many episodes was The Return? I swear I only saw it on like 3 times... And didn't they have some issues with time slot shenanigans?

    Ten so far. I said "all season" because the ratings weren't good before, during, or after the shenanigans.

    So my Tivo caught a Good Eats Thanksgiving special where he does a spatchcocked turkey (the best way to cook a turkey!).

    This episode was from 2013. But something surprised me -- I don't know when the 45 degree angled mirror gag started, but it seemed like to me that it started with the latest new season of Good Eats as well as Good Eats Reloaded -- but not true! He was using this back in 2013 for (at least) this episode -- see first image below. He also used it a few times in this episode for strange off-angle shots that got the oven or cutting board in the shot as well -- see second photo.

    I like the mirror gag, except that every single time they do it, they add a little mechanical 'cahink' sound effect to it. I wish they wouldn't do that -- it sounds like the laugh track on BBT. ;)

    We stumbled upon Alton Brown's YouTube channel tonight...

    He did a Quarantine Cooking with Alton and Elizabeth the other night (him and his wife finding stuff in the fridge to cook) . It was hilarious. It's a must watch.

    Somewhat related, Michael Symon has been doing a live ‘pantry dinner’ via the Food Network Kitchen Facebook page since Monday 3/16. They air daily at 5pm. Pretty entertaining and approachable even if you’re not adept in the kitchen.

    Today is chili:

    It's why Alton Brown is god. I find it funny because I was watching a show called Tournament of Champions (in which the top Food Network chefs compete against each other) and how Microwave came up as something that has to be used. Both chefs were aghast at having to use it and claiming they never used it at all.

    I found it funny because Alton Brown has several acceptable things to use the microwave for - including boiling water, softening or melting butter and other things.

    Sometimes I wish Alton Brown would do a MST3K thing where he'd comment on such cooking competitions.

    Silly me - I had assumed he was only doing weeknights (and was hoping he'd be back on Monday).

    It reminds me of Sarah Moulton Live - and I couldn't see that Sarah was doing anything similar to this now. :(

    That’s what I thought too but saw him going at it yesterday afternoon. They are pretty entertaining despite the inane questions he typically gets and he answers them with aplomb
