I NEVER thought this would happen, but it did!
Production of six new episodes starring Robert Irvine will begin this month, reports the AP.
"Our audience has continued to demonstrate its interest in and support for Robert. He has taken responsibility and made a conscious effort to clear the air, rebuild the relationship with Food Network and apologize for the earlier inaccuracies," said Food Network spokeswoman Carrie Welch said in a written statement.
Guess this really means: Michael Symon was a ratings loser. Sorry Mike!
I personally didn't watch the show that much--didn't matter if it was a Robert of Symon episode. But from what you fans tell me, Michael Symon just wasn't cutting it.
New episodes starring Irvine will begin airing March 2009.
