Why are new cooking shows so terrible and mediocre?

In bed with pneumonia and have been watching the latest crop of PBS Create cooking shows and am feeling even more ill after seeing "Christina Cooking Class" , "Pati's Mexican Kitchen" and the "Jazzy Cook". Thank goodness for Jacques and Julia but I am dismayed at what passes for "cooking" shows. I'm sure there is some real talent (i.e simple intelligence and heart over visuals and celebrity) out there but how do these dismal programs that dish out misinformation and continue to crop up?
