I like cooking shows that are instructive. I do not like shows that are culinary competitions,
races against the clock, or opportunities to laugh at bad cooks.
Right now I'm immersed in tennis and am not watching much else. There are close to ten hours of matches televised per day in the first week of a grand slam tournament. I watch the night session live from Melbourne in the morning, then switch over to the day sessions that I recorded overnight. It will all calm down next week as we get into the quarters, the semis, and the finals.
