    I do love the in the flesh one the most, although they both are wonderful! I can't wait to see them again!

  2. MaryChris posted 05/11/2010

    Yes, I read that Jennifer Paterson had died several years ago. Is there someone else that has taken her place?

      SO WHAT that they are reruns, I say also! You are obviously missing the point! I loved them; we all loved them. They were so funny and I did cook some of the dishes, which were wonderful. I for one am glad the shows are being rerun. I guess you also complain about reruns of Julia Child shows?!

        why are you so butt hurt?

    It is so cool that you are discussing this. My preferred opening sequence is the animation. It did a wonderful job of providing you with a glimpse of what you might catch in any one of their episodes from ingredients, to game hunting to their ubiquitous motorcycle.

    I have so many favorite episodes which almost always featured one of Jennifer's recollections of her youth. However, my favorite closing moment was one in which they toasted "The Almighty" after another succesful meal, in this case, at a rectory in London. What wonderful and intelligent and very British pair of women these two were.

    Cooking Channel! You can't publish a tagline that reads "Two Fat Ladies are back and better than ever…"
    when Jennifer Paterson passed away in 1999. They are not back (I'm assuming these are re-runs) and they are not better than ever as there is only one fat lady left out of the two!

    In the flesh… They were a delightful pair to watch. Just so funny and the LARD that they used. Makes me cringe but I still watch their show. Now these cooking shows ARE reality shows. Tee heeeeee

    This is one of my favoriite cooking shows and glad to hear its coming to cookingtv. Though both the animated and in the flesh versions are great, but…. my fav is in the flesh!

  8. isobel7 posted 05/25/2010

    so the new food network would rather have a show of reruns than have a show for vegetarians/vegans awesome….

    When I first figured out what "Cooking Channel" was all about, I was hoping that my favorite ladies would be on. Today I logged on to contact the channel in hopes I could convince them to indeed air the awesome fat ladies, and to my joyful surprise, the "Two Fat Ladies" ride again!!! YAY!!! I always got such a kick out of their humorous way of doing things and really have missed them. Peace to all, Dayleen in 29 Palms, CA

  10. Michaele posted 07/16/2010

    I adore these ladies, why must you air them so late, how about a Sunday afternoon–PLEASE??????????????

    i just love those 2 fat ladyies even if one has passed away they are still very good shows i can watch all the reruns a million times a day.

    Unquestionably believe that which you stated. Your favorite reason appeared to be on the web the easiest thing to be aware of. I say to you, I certainly get annoyed while people consider worries that they plainly do not know about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top and also defined out the whole thing without having side-effects , people could take a signal. Will likely be back to get more. Thanks

    Great website…

    I was sad not to find the 2 back-to-back episodes on tonight (8/27/11)…..especially since this is the only viewing of the show each week – that I'm aware of ;-( I really do look forward to watching each week and regardless…. if it's an episode I've already seen…. I still watch and enjoy!!
    I've never seen the "in the flesh" intro – that's awesome! I read some bio info on the TWO FAT LADIES here on line and find them quite interesting. Also note that Clarissa has written books and done some other adventures since the sad passing of Jennifer…R.I.P. Love the TWO FAT LADIES, so please keep 'em coming!!!!

  20. Barbara posted 08/28/2011

    When I saw that the Two Fat Ladies was not airing tonite (8/27/11) and being replaced by a pizza program, I was very saddened. I immediately thought that the Cooking Channel was going to go down the drain just as the Food Network channel has. Great programs are being aired and then replaced with pathetic cake, cupcake, dinners and dives (or whatever that Guy F program is). It doesn't matter how many different named programs Bobby Flay, Rachael Ray, Guy and Giada have, they are still the same old boring egotistical individuals. I no longer watch that channel. The Two Fat Ladies reruns, no matter how many times I have seen them, are refreshing and entertaining, just as Julia Child's are. Please bring them back on the air. Why try to fix something when it ain't broke??

  21. GANA posted 08/29/2011

    I was so disappointed to see that the "Two Fat Ladies" were not on the Cooking Channel last night; they have become a delightful ritual in this household every week. So glad to see that they we will be back on next Saturday night 9/3.

  22. Gail posted 08/29/2011

    When I returned from vacation I was sooooo disappointed that they were not on at the usual Saturday night spot–cannot wait for their return–hopefully with some new episodes.

  23. s cox posted 09/16/2011

    I love the show the two fat ladies

  25. Chefi56 posted 11/12/2011

    Can't wait! I'm going to make a pot of tea, cozy up and watch them!

  26. Cheryl Eaton Langlois posted 11/20/2011

    I have loved watching the ladies for years Jennifer reminds me of my own mother who passed away in 2010 she has the same who gives a fart personality.

  27. Karen posted 12/27/2011

    Jennifer who died of lung cancer had Clarissa smuggle in tots of gin whilst she was in hospital at the end. Clarissa, a recovering alcoholic, did so. Read her biography. Great book.

  28. Norene posted 01/05/2012

    love the show, want the book with the red cover & motorcycle,where can I get it?

  29. S. P. Major posted 01/15/2012

    I have loved this show! I will miss Jennifer the most! She was a 'delight'!! I'm glad for the 'reruns'! Rest In Peace Jennifer…….

    I love both versions!

  31. Roberta112947 posted 01/24/2012

    My brother introduced me to this show ears ago. I just fell in love with them and am so happy The Cooking Channel has brought them back. Here are two beautiful ladies with kindness in their faces and and grace in their hearts. Yes, Jennifer is gone but will always be in our hearts.
    I have taken some of their baking recipes, made sme adjustments and really enjoy them.

    Two Fat Ladies rock on..

    And thankyou Cooking Channel.

  34. Daniel posted 04/10/2012

    Althouth the show is old, (the 1990's), I still enjoy watching the re-runs. They are unashamed of the cooking they do, don't appologize for the lack of low-fat low-cholesterol dishes and emphasize local produce. I like that attitude.

  35. Lynk posted 04/29/2012

    In the flesh. Love these 2!

  36. Nancy Moore posted 05/24/2012

    I don't think the flesh one shows them enough. I love the animation with the motorcycle because thats part of what made them so querky and off the wall to see them riding through the countryside. Too funny ! Besides, the animation is the way it was in the original shows and I think it should stay that way. If you decide to go with "flesh" then I'd start over and show more of their faces not the food, and be sure to show them driving in their special motorcycle. To me that was their signature.

  37. Mr.Fong posted 07/01/2012

    I prefer the animation and I particularly enjoy the fact that they were TOTALLY non-PC… They hunted, fished, smoked, drank and made rude comments about EEC regulations… Bless them both!

  38. Jon Hineman posted 07/28/2012

    Hey Cooking Channel!!!!! Where are the ladies?????

  39. Meka posted 07/29/2012

    Get the Two Fat Ladys show back onto the COOKING channel. They are very entertaining,some of the shows like Nadia KITCHEN BITCHEN is horrible. I love watching how the ladys do their cooking and very good tips. Please let them get back and not at a stupid time when most people are sleeping.Sometimes I think producers are really stupid.

  40. lisa tolleson posted 08/05/2012

    I love this show. I use to watch them and I'm so glad they are on the cooking channel.

AHHHHHH, ok, so when i finally calmed down i realized it was Saturday and I could get a coupleof shows in AND start RE-RECORDING them ….I FIND OUT THEY R NO LONGER SHOWING THEM!!!!!!!!!! worst Saturday ever ;(……

    I can't wait until two fat ladies returned. I hope it is soon they are the best cooking show on TV today

  45. Let Down posted 10/17/2012

    I'm really, really disappointed in Cooking Channel for taking off the Two Fat Ladies. I'll resume watching this channel when Two Fat Ladies and Bitchin' Kitchen are played on Saturday nights again…until then, you've lost a viewer.
