Duff Goldman/Mary Alice »
News broke yesterday that Duff Goldman is going to be starring in a new Food Network show called… SUGAR HIGH. According to the press release, it’s 6 episode of Duff taking a “cross-country trek to capture the sweet secrets and tasty techniques that keep the cookies from crumbling in the top bakeries around the nation.”
I say, and with all caps for emphasis, ANOTHER SHOW ABOUT SOMEONE TRAVELING AROUND AND EATING? SERIOUSLY? LIKE THERE AREN’T ENOUGH OF THOSE? AND LIKE ANYONE REALLY WANTS TO WATCH UNCLE FESTER UP THERE SHOVING HIS FACE WITH FRIED DOUGH IN A FUCKING PARKING LOT? THAT NOW QUALIFIES AS COMPELLING TELEVISION? REALLY?
If “Sugar High” sounds familiar, that’s because Food Network already ran the exact same show a few years ago… only it was called SUGAR RUSH, and it starred Warren Brown. I guess he didn’t properly foodgasm into the camera or draw in enough of Food Network’s treasured “caveman” demographic or something. But talk about scraping the bottom of the barrel! Now they’re not stealing shows from other networks – they’re just rehashing their own old crap! The horror! Not to mention they’re also still running “Kid in a Candy Store”, “Unwrapped”, “Unique Sweets”, and the other countless shows about candy and baking.
If you’re looking for further proof this show is going to be horrendous, look no further than the moronic show titles: “Chillin’ with Chocolate”, “Phreakin’ Phenomenal!”, and “Something Old, Something Bold, and Something Rock’n’Roll!” If the show gets renewed, we can certainly look forward to shows titled: “Losin’ Thousands Of Brain Cells” and “Is That A Cannoli In Goldman’s Pants Or Is He Just Happy To See Me?”
The “show” starts in August. Stay tuned to FNH for updates.
(Sidebar: when I first started FNH almost 3 years ago, everything on Food Network seemed funny. Now, the whole network just sort of feels pathetic. Am I right?)
