Rachael's New 2 YR Deal

Rachael's not straying from the Food Network. She'll be back with a vengeance... complete with a new primetime travel show and 120 more episodes of 30 Minute Meals!

NEW YORK, NY – DECEMBER 17, 2007 – Food Network and Rachael Ray have agreed to a two-year deal for a new primetime series, Rachael’s Vacation launching in January 2008, as well as 60 new episodes per year of popular daytime series 30 Minute Meals, it was announced today by Brooke Johnson, President, Food Network.
Rachael's Vacation, eh? What's that all about?

Rachael’s Vacation, premiering January 12 at 9 PM ET/PT, follows Rachael as she takes time to sneak away and have a vacation. Viewers will follow as she discovers the distant cities, countries, foods, and lifestyles that continue to amaze and excite her. On this international odyssey, Rachael’s motto is “can do” travel. From pubs in Dublin to markets in Bordeaux, from a fairy tale carriage ride in Lisbon to a marathon of tapas in Barcelona, Rachael charts her course for exciting finds near and far. In every episode, viewers will experience the hip, fun, and funky places she loves; with her ideas, info and tips on where to holiday whether for globe trotting or weekending. She will also visit bookstores, house-ware haunts, shoe shops, and boutiques; plus street festivals, museums, and farmers’ markets.
Only Rachael, who's as busy as ever, would use her vacation time to shoot yet another series.

But I digress...
“Rachael is the quintessential example of the homegrown stars we create at Food Network,” said Johnson. “She has been with us since 2001 and we have built a strong partnership that will continue for years to come and bring more new and exciting projects.”
Cheers to RayRay for working out this deal. I'm not sure how she does it.

So Top Chef is a "copy" of TNFNS but Food Network won't admit that the British reality show Masterchef is older than Food Network itself.

I give up.

If anything, Top Chef (with all its faults) is a better copy. Although each season just gets less and less watchable, I hate to say.

That's 120 episodes and counting that I won't be watching.

Hey, Paul...that's also why TV remotes have channel selector buttons...you can change the station if you wish.

I toast RR for staying with TFN.
