It took three weeks, but Scripps & Cablevision have settled their differences, allowing Food Network and HGTV
to return to New York area cable customers this afternoon. Both sides had plenty of tough talk New Year's Day when the channels disappeared
, but all that's faded into the general "we're glad to be back on" PR-speak. Terms of the agreement weren't disclosed but we hear Bobby Flay and Guy Fieri will be suiting up for the Knicks tonight, which could explain the lengthy negotiations.
