''Emeril Live'' canceled by Food Network

Posted on

After 10 years on the air, the Food Network has canceled Emeril Lagasse’s Emeril Live. Production on the show will stop on Dec. 11, but the celebrity chef remains on contract with the network. ”We love him, we support him, and look forward to a long partnership with him,” a Food Network spokesperson told the Associated Press. The network will continue to air Lagasse’s The Essence of Emeril, and the chef will also participate in various specials. Lagasse said in a statement: ”I am deeply appreciative to all the unbelievable staff — many who have been with the show since the beginning — and all the loyal viewers, and the many talented guests who have appeared on the show through the years.” (AP via Yahoo!)
