The verdict! Anne Burrell's new show - Did you watch?

I was eagerly awaiting this much hyped new show, and to say I was sadly disappointed, is an understatement. Watching this show was PAINFUL! She grunts, groans and tries to highlight statements by jumping into a Frankenstein-esque voice. With her hands flailing about like a "kite festival gone bad", she cooks the "crap" out of her dish until it reaches a state of "cruddom". And while preparing the asparagus, she suddenly lunges into a "southern drawl" referring the the olive oil as "earl". I'm sorry, but either she is extremely bipolar and off her medication, or NEEDS it badly. I can understand "newbie" nervousness, but this was one of the worst half hours of tv I've ever watched.
