Good Eats Moving to Cooking Channel

Alton BrownBy now most people have heard the word that Alton Brown has called an end to his award winning series Good Eats after 13 years and 250 episodes.  Now comes news (that’s a loose interpretation) that Cooking Channel, Food Network’s younger but better looking brother, is going to add the complete cannon of GE to its prime time line-up.

The move seems a no-brainer and I’m guessing it took few by surprise.  The Cooking Channel is about cooking (thus the name) and few shows in history have been better at teaching people to cook than Good Eats.  Brown mentioned the move in an article in the Atlanta Journal Constitution on August 26th.  In the article AB said, “I feel after 250 I can walk away from that library of work and feel good about it and know it’s had an effect to some degree on somebody besides me and those who worked on it. And it will hold its own for awhile. We wanted to make sure they were dense, juicy and succulent and last a long time.”

Brown also revealed that the motivation for ending his run with Good Eats was the sheer time involved in doing the series.  It was keeping him from exploring new projects like his as-yet unnamed  mini-series about the influence food has had on history quipping, “Cod actually changed the world!”  And of course you can still find Alton manning the commentators podium on Iron Chef America and hosting the Next Iron Chef.

Good Eats begins airing on the Cooking Channel Friday, September 30th, 8p-10pm ET.
