    BAM! Emeril Live Cancelled

    I for one liked the show.
    I really think he was one who made the food network be around in the first place. Now if they could only cancell anything with rachel ray I would be happy. Although the wife loves her, barefoot contessa, and who ever that older southern woman is.

    NEW YORK (AP) -- Food Network is kicking Emeril Lagasse down a notch.

    The celebrity chef's "Emeril Live," which has been on the air for 10 years, will cease production December 11, Food Network publicist Carrie Welch told The Associated Press.

    "However, Emeril is under contract with Food Network," Welch said Tuesday. "We love him, we support him and look forward to a long partnership with him."

    Welch wouldn't comment on Lagasse's contract.

    Asked why the show was canceled, she told the AP: "The only reason would be that it hit a ton of television milestones and, you know, all good things come to an end."

    The Food Network will continue producing Lagasse's "The Essence of Emeril," and he will take part in "specials and other development opportunities in the future," Welch said.

    The network will also air reruns of "Emeril Live."

    "I am deeply appreciative to all the unbelievable staff -- many who have been with the show since the beginning -- and all the loyal viewers, and the many talented guests who have appeared on the show through the years," Lagasse, 48, said in a statement provided by Welch.

    "I look forward to continuing my association with the Food Network with 'The Essence of Emeril,' and I have lots of new ideas cooking," he said.

    I used to watch Emeril Live quite a bit, but haven't really watched in a couple of years.
    The other Chefs on the Food Network appeal to me more now, and I enjoy their dishes more as well.
    It was a pretty good run for Emeril though.

    I love to watch the food Paula Dean cooks, but if I ate them, my fat intake would be off the chart.
    She starts each recipie with, "Take 1/4 pound of butter..."

    OK, this one's right up my alley (much to Webby's dismay)- so HAVE to get my 2 cents in here...

    I'm shocked to hear this- he's such a force on the network, but have to admit that, I also tend to turn the channel when he's on.
    Hate the Essence of Emeril (boring!)- I originally loved his live show, but grew tired of the repetition of his signature lines (i could recite them and see them coming a mile away)... but am still surprised.
    I agree with Garland Green- can't stand Rachel Ray (she's so over rated and obnoxious)- I like Barefoot Contessa, can't do Paula Dean anymore, like Giada De Laurentiis-
    and really like Tyle Florence...
    never thought the day would come when I'd see such a headline...
