Edwards Joins the Food Network

With Emeril Live! going off the air after 10 scrumptuous years, the Food Network faced a dilemna: whom to replace the charismatic and entertaining food whiz?

Never fear; TVFN has apparently tapped erstwhile presidential candidate John Edwards (no, not that one) to host a new show centering on decorative food presentations:

"(T)he Edwards plan would empower the federal government to garnish an individual's wages for purposes of collecting "back premiums with interest and collection costs." (emphasis mine)

While I'm not sure how that will play out in prime time, certainly the success of shows like "Unwrapped" and "Have Fork, Will Travel" demonstrate that the gastronomic-themed network isn't afraid to take chances.

[ed: um, perhaps the Edwards campaign meant "garnishee" the miscreants' wages?]



Never mind.
