The Cooking Channel Replaces Fine Living on May 31

Fine Living NetworkI'm not sure how many people are even aware that a network called Fine Living even exists. It's up there on your cable dial, and even though it runs a lot of Martha Stewart programming, it's still a network that people don't think about too much. Maybe that's one of the reasons why Scripps is getting rid of the channel and changing it to The Cooking Channel on May 31.

Where Fine Living was focused on other lifestyle topics, The Cooking Channel will focus on well, food and cooking. Scripps owns Food Network too, so expect to see some new shows from people like Rachael Ray and Bobby Flay. Both of them need new shows because they currently only have about 11 each.

Maybe this cooking channel will fill the gap that a lot of people say that Food Network created when they started to go towards more personality-driven cooking shows and reality competition shows. It would be great to see Sara Moulton doing a live cooking show again, wouldn't it?

As long as they don't have Sandra Lee (the botulism queen) anywhere, I'm all for it.
