Emeril Lagasse is out at the Food Network. Contract negotiations between Emeril and parent corporation Scripps have broken down. Lagasse is leaving the Food Network as a result and the last day of production for Emeril Live will be on December 11.

Reruns of Emeril Live will continue to appear on the channel and Lagasse will “continue to be a part of the Food Network family”, according to Carrie Welch of the Food Network. Lagasse’s defection follows Mario Batali‘s exit back in September.

We’ll have more info shortly.

Update: Despite Emeril Live‘s demise, production is continuing on Essence of Emeril.
