Alton Brown Receives a Peabody Award

Quick, what do Stephen Colbert and my favorite Food Network star, Alton Brown, have in common? Okay there's the whole from the south thing, but that's not what I'm looking for. The answer I'm looking for is the fact that they both have a Peabody Award! Colbert received his back when he was on The Daily Show, but Alton just received his honor. The 2007 Peabody Award winners, for excellence in radio and television broadcasting, were announced today and Alton Brown's Good Eats is the first Food Network show to receive the honor.

Awards went to "Good Eats," a deliriously inventive series for Food Network in which Alton Brown educates viewers about food, science, history and culture.

I think this is awesome. I've been a big fan of Alton ever since I first saw Good Eats back in 2000. He's geeky and funny, and I love his goofy props. It's like high school science, only more fantastic and all about food and therefore 100x more awesome.

Congrats to AB and his Good Eats team! The awards, which will be MC'd by Bob Costas, will be presented June 4 at a luncheon at the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel in New York City.
