I grew up watching cooking shows with my dad. Back then it was all about Julia Child, Jaques Pepin and the Frugal Gourmet. Nowadays it seems that a lot of people are getting inspired to cook by reality shows like MasterChef. So, what about you? do you have a favourite cooking show?

FoodTV is often on when I want some background noise and is my default channel. For watching, I prefer the reality food shows more than the cooking ones. That said, I'm a big Alton Brown fan. I can often be found looking at some item in a kitchen store saying, "Unitasker," before I put it down.

Favorite shows: Bizarre Foods, Top Chef, Dinner Impossible, No Reservations, Next Food Network Star, Ace of Cakes. And Good Eats, of course.
I'm with Sean on this one. Alton Brown is my hero and a man's man if you ask me. Who else but a man would smoke a salmon with a cardboard box, hot plate and some wood chips or my personal favorite use the burner from a turkey fryer to get the proper BTU's for Chinese food.
I'm with Sean and Timothy - Alton Brown is a man's cook. I swear that he was an engineer in a former life. Speaking of engineers, my favorite cooking website is http://www.cookingforengineers.com/ - do check it out.
Thumbs up for Alton Brown and Good Eats. Paula Deen's show and Throw Dawn with Bobby Flay tie for second.
I also like Alton Brown. He has written some interesting books about cooking (more science than cook books). I also really enjoyed his TV series Feasting on Asphalt.
+1. I enjoy Alton Brown as well. Feasting on Asphalt as well as Good Eats are staples on my TiVo.
Rachel Ray is really cute.
I have to say the one cooking show I always watch is Good Eats with Alton Brown. He is the McGyver of cooking.
I used to watch Justin Wilson's Cajun cooking show on PBS every time I could. It was on every Sunday. My dad and I loved his recipes and his stories. I think he had the manliest cooking show in history. You can still find clips of his shows on Youtube, and the videos are out there. I don't have cable (I have no use for most TV) so I get my cooking videos online or at the local library.
Yeah, he was great...I remember a show he did about how they should make airplane food, and think of it everytime I get on a plane now :)
Check out Chef John at Food Wishes. I prefer this guy to anything on FoodTV.
Despite its name & purpose, I don't think the Food Network offers the best cooking shows. That said, my personal favorites on that channel are Good Eats, Barefoot Contessa, Everyday Italian and that show Nigella hosts. The last two aren't JUST because the girls are hot!

The other great shows, I'm not sure where to find these days, are: Kitchen Sessions with Charlie Trotter, Fast Food My Way with Jaques Pepin, and Great Chefs.
