Acknowledging its tormentor, Scripps Networks (the parent company of the Food Network and the upcoming Cooking Channel), to prevent the satirical and often funny Food Network Humor from launching the site Cooking Channel Humor, registered the domain CookingChannelHumor.com back in January (image to the right is of the domain registration details).
