I guess he didn't get paid by caddy since he was more than happy to shill for chase

That's too bad. I heard they were pretty nice.

Okay that was really dumb. That Cadillac thing looked like a last-minute edit. The video quality didn't even match. Really poor.

Bourdain cracked me the f*ck up though.

Far OUT, Mr. Bourdain!
I doubt he'll have any trouble making a living that he enjoys with or without the Travel Channel.

Gee Anthony, did they put advertising in your 48 minute Epic piece of art on basic cable?

You already sold out, sport, now they are just haggling over the price.

Dear god this. I know there's been quite a few episodes in the past seasons I had a massive desire to be in his shoes (particularly when he was with Nari Kye, yum), but this last season has had me frothing at the mouth over how jealous I am of his old job. Seriously, the scene from the Burgundy episode with Ludo's grandmother? Just about lost it in a food porn moment. And dear god the Emilia-Romangna balsamic vinegar shoot... I don't buy the cheap stuff, but comparing the balsamic from that scene to mine is like comparing fetid water to ambrosia...

True. But I do see why the show is ending. There's only so many interesting episodes you could make.

I suppose you could venture into really obscure places, but you run the risk of boring the audience and endangering the places you're visiting with a tourism bomb it can't handle.

I think he was more pissed at the fact that (if you watched the finale) it made him LOOK like he was promoting Cadillac. It was clearly thrown together last minute and Cadillac probably waved some money at Travel Channel who (knowing that they're loosing their golden goose) slurped it up quicker than I slurp up good ramen. Tony probably didn't get his cut so epic beatdown commences. I approve of this, you use my visage to sell a product I didn't approve of, or at the very least didn't get a kickback from, I'd go nuclear as well.

So he did this during the final episode? How edgy. Did I say edgy? I meant safe. Especially when he already has a CNN gig lined up.

And if it was a last minute edit in by the corporation, which wouldn't have worked on any previous episodes because its his finale, how could he have done it before?

And you honestly think bourdain isn't 'I don't care' enough to do it any way? Because I doubt his reaction would have changed.

Sure he is. I've been to his restaurant in NY, Les Halles, twice. The food is outstanding and also very very reasonably priced for what you get. Highly recommended (try the merguez frites if you go, also the cassoulet, mmmm)

This.

His show is one of the best I've ever seen. Some episodes are silly fun, some episodes are absolutely heartbreaking, most are informative and interesting. He also has a REALLY good production crew; his show looks more like a documentary film than a television program. It's always jarring when Travel Channel jumps right into the next show and you see the shift in visual quality.

All that said, I'm glad he's ending it now and moving on. The show absolutely peaked a couple seasons ago. Not that the new stuff wasn't good, it just wasn't AS good.

He's usually good for a laugh. I like genuine people, even if they're assholes - you at least know what you're getting, and Bourdain can be a bit of an asshole. Just not this time.

It was stupid of the Travel Channel to basically drop in advertising in the middle of a show, after the fact, just to pitch a car no one wants to touch with a stick because, and let's face it, Cadillacs have been shiat for years. It warms my heart to see Bourdain destroy both Cadillac and the Travel Channel for this kind of pandering stupidity.

I had a Caddy DTS rental (the grandpa car) last summer and it was tits. I would totally drive one of those things.

The ATS is actually a pretty farking amazing automobile. It generally is getting eked-out by the BMW 3-series, but the fact that it has already been accepted as viable competition, and has been so close, is pretty impressive.

I've never been a Cadillac fan but I could actually see someone driving one of these and not question their sanity.

Big difference between "selling ads to Caddy to run during commercial breaks" and "cutting a caddy into the show after Tony has signed off on it".

I don't follow the twitters, so I didn't see Tony's reaction. I do know my reaction to the show; I didn't notice the cut. If I had, I probably would have thought a bit less of Tony. Tony's reaction is understandable.

/bummed I didn't get to drink with him and Ripert when they came to Charlottesville this year ...

HulkHands: It was amusing when he bashed Discovery for bowing to Budweiser and cancelling Brew Masters


Not sure how much Budweiser had to do with it, but the show was too predictable:

1. Sam learns about new crazy beer and decides to make it.
2. Teams up with brewmaster at the test brewery and start work.
3. Oh noes! Trouble at the brewery!
4. New beer is done just in time, but is it any good?
5. Of course it is! Everyone loves it!

Repeat.

Loves Dogfish Head beer, but running a brewery doesn't lend itself well to reality television.
