Just registered my formal complaint with Cablevision over the loss of HGTV and The Food Network. I called instead of writing to see what was happening. The recording on the phone was very unsatisfying, as it reminded me of all my other food and home decor choices. Not good enough.

I eventually talked to a terrific representative who put the formal complaint on my account record. Let’s see what happens.

In the meantime, no David Bromstad and no Barefoot Contessa. Grrrrrrr.
