Emeril Live is, in my opinion, one of the most boreing cooking shows on TV today. Now, I love the food network and I watch a lot of shows, but Emeril is just boreing. He has his cheesy "kick it up a notch" and "bam." It's really annoying. He tries to act all cool and he's not. Also, he just cooks. He's not interesting to me at all. He never seems to have good stories or anything like that. He just talks about the food and doesn't really seem to really make anything interesting. I don't know, I guess I just don't like his style. His live band is pointless and is really just over kill. On a good note, he cooks good food, but it's just not interesting and entertaining like several other cooking shows.
