Food Network who?

Beginning July 7, TV chef extraordinaire Emeril Lagasse will jump ship from the foodies' cable network of choice to the even more niche Fine Living Network, with new episodes of Emeril Live! to be shown on his new small-screen home.

"As you know in television, things have to evolve, and this is a little evolution for me," Lagasse said of his channel jump.

While Emeril Live! reruns will continue to be shown five afternoons a week on the Food Network, the Fine Living Network will air the show seven nights a week at 7 p.m. For its first week on the new channel, new episodes will be shown every night, and, for the following two months, just Monday night's episode will be new.

After that, the Fine Living Network, which at 50 million subscribers reaches a little more than half of Food Network's audience, will have the option of ordering more shows.

Or, as Lagasse refers to it, seconds.
