I totally agree. The programmers are LAZY.
Marathons of DDD, Chopped, Cupcake Wars and other such non-instructional shows are boring. I only watch certain shows and almost never at night when all the competition shows are on. I prefer actual cooking shows that give me ideas for my own home cooking. Whatever happened to "regular programming" that would have ONE episode each of several different hosts.
That would mean that on weekdays instead of marathons of Farmhouse, Giada, Pioneer Woman, etc. would be changed to a line up of one show each daily.
By the way, I love the aforementioned shows but with the marathon format we see far too many repeats frequently. This marathon business is annoying and extremely boring.
