It’s official. The Food Network's connection to Emeril Live will be confined only to afternoon repeats.
Fine Living (shown in a little more than half the Food Network’s 90 million homes) has picked it up. Starting July 7th, they will show a new Emeril Live every Monday night with repeats the other six nights, after an initial premiere week of five original episodes. It will be shown in the same time block as his corporate boss Martha Stewart’s show every weekday evening.
The big news here is that this prolongs the life of Emeril Live and leaves open the possibility of future seasons. The Scripps Network does own both the Food Network AND Fine Living. I guess they felt that Emeril's high profile would be of more benefit to Fine Living.
Good luck to everyone’s favorite Cajun chef.
*Yes, I know that doesn't really mean "Where are you Emeril?" but I couldn't resist the poetic sounding title...
