Last week's survey on Food Network shows generated a lot of action. At last count there were 419 votes and 78 comments. It was quite an education for us!

Of the shows listed in the survey, Ina Garten's Barefoot Contessa won, by a long shot. However, it is evident by the comments that Alton Brown's Good Eats is a very popular show, despite it not being on the list (we'll have to check with our friends at FN about that.) The Rachael Ray controversy continued, and a resounding cry against Semi-Homemade with Sandra Lee was heard throughout the blog.

Interestingly, many readers shared their preference for cooking shows that air on PBS, such as America's Test Kitchen, and Mark Bittman's How to Cook Everything.
