2 Dudes Get New Gig

I gave Jon Shook and Vinny Dotolo a bad rap for their pretty awful Food Network show 2 Dudes Catering. And you readers seemed to agree.

It wasn't even the hair that bothered me, although that did get quite a few viewers up in a tizzy. You viewers apt to get in tizzies know who you are!

But now "The Food Dudes," as they're called, are doing some actually good cooking videos for Eat, Drink or Die with a webshow, aptly named Wake and Bake.

Check out this one for an egg white wrapped brat. There's even a little video from their Giant Brat Drop publicity stunt in Chicago.

(BTW-- turn the poor, innocent children away from the computer screen if you think they might be offended by the occasional "bad" word or the sight of a stoner getting his mouth burned on a fresh-from-the-pan bratwurst.)

I kind of like the idea of two (possibly) stoned chefs hosting a cooking show. It has latenight written all over it, and would have done MUCH better than the bad docu-dramedy thing that 2 Dudes ended up being.

Every show would be them getting the munchies and starting up some dish, only to forget what they were cooking halfway through and ditching the kitchen to go back to their Xbox.

Maybe they can wind up in that new Weezer video that everyone keeps watching on YouTube! Might be more interesting than their show :)

Is this some male superiority thing where you say, "No matter how dirty and ugly we are, we've got dicks, so we're entitled to our own tee vee show?"

Why Lord Tuschman keeps these guys around is anyone's guess.

I know he will try just about anything to attract viewers, so I suppose if he puts these two thugs on their own show, it will attract like viewers. geez, Bob had you ever thought that FN can't appeal to every age group or demographic ?

Do you see specialty channels like Discovery stooping to new lows in order to attract new viewers of a lesser intellect ? Of course not. They know when to call it a day.

You yeah greedy bugger, just keep feeding us crap after crap thinking the advertisers are going to heap th ebig bucks at you.

No wonder Bourdain thinks you are a total cop out and cheese artist.

You are ruining a rather good network by appeasing a rather greedy parent.

No wonder you flunked out at real networks. Maybe Jake can do a story on your exit from one place in particular uh ?

John: haha...they'd fit right in.

anon: ehh, I think dirty stoner girls could get a tv show, too... stoners don't have a lot of ambition, though.

alec: he hasn't kept them around. the show was not renewed.
