There are a few of these out there, but I'm only going to list the most notable ones. I know noone seems to give a crap about Hell's Kitchen anymore.

I'm going to have to put in a vote for Hell's Kitchen

I loved Top Chef for the longest time, but it hasn't been good in a long time.

I'm thinking this is getting to be a tired reality competition genre for most.

I'm just taking a break from Hell's Kitchen. I couldn't do it this past round, but I've seen all of the other seasons before this last one. MasterChef is the only other one I watch, next to Cutthroat Kitchen.

Re: What notable cooking competition series are you the most burnt out from watching?

If memory serves me right...

I've only ever watched the original Iron Chef and Chopped. I don't know where to find episodes of the original IC so I'd watch that again in a heartbeat. As for Chopped, when we got rid of cable, we no longer had it. That was a few years ago and only in the last month or so have I thought to check to see if it's streaming somewhere (it wasn't back then). Sure enough, FoodNetwork.com has a few episodes as does Hulu. Returning to it after a forced hiatus is a blast, I love it.

Re: What notable cooking competition series are you the most burnt out from watching?

I grew very exhausted with Top Chef, I've taken a multiple season break. I think I'm close to Chopped fatigue as well. But as mentioned, I think I'm growing weary of the competitive reality genre altogether.

Hell's Kitchen.

Though I'm also burnt out on Top Chef and Chopped, I'll still occasionally watch an episode here or there. Hell's Kitchen I actively avoid.

Chopped

I don't watch too many of the cooking competition shows so I'm not too burnt out on my regulars.

Re: What notable cooking competition series are you the most burnt out from watching?

It's funny.. when I moved to Charlotte in 2003, our TV was on Food Network almost constantly. Seems like we only changed the channel to watch something else, then turned it back to Food Network. But it's nothing but reality crap now: Chopped, Mystery Diners, Food Network Star, Cutthroat Kitchen... what a bunch of crap.

Still, Hell's Kitchen takes the damn cake. My mom still watches it, and she'll want to talk about it... and it's literally the same show every season! Let me guess: Ramsay is still dividing teams up by gender, with women on the red team and men on the blue team? Challenges still always come down to the last entry? And most contestants are incompetent, except for the 2-3 you know will be in the finals 10 minutes in to the season premiere? Blerg. No thanks.

Yeah, Food Network seems to be running Chopped all day, every day. I missed Iron Chef America. That seemed to have been relegated to real late nights only.

Re: What notable cooking competition series are you the most burnt out from watching?

The only shows I make an effort to watch are Top Chef, Food Network Star, and Great Food Truck Race. I'll watch Chopped when it's on, and I've seen a few episodes of Cutthroat Kitchen, which is absurd but not unwatchable. Diners Drive-Ins and Dives I'll watch when it's on.

The one I used to watch religiously that I never see anymore is Iron Chef America. I watched a bit of one season of Next Iron Chef but didn't care enough to stick with it.

I do like Restaurant Impossible, and I used to like the old Bobby Flay Showdown, so I watched a couple episodes of the new Beat Bobby Flay show and it was OK. I always liked in the old show when he would show up to surprise the contestant--corny, I know, but fun.

I don't watch Hell's Kitchen, and the only episodes of Kitchen Nightmares I saw were the Amy's Baking Company ones.
