Getting really annoyed with the mini news break being inserted into the last segment of the show! Coming back from the commercial break, and showed less than one minute of the last segment, and then go to news break, before coming back to reveal the best dish, is that really necessary? That just reeks of desperation and destroys the feel-good vibe of the show!
