    Is anyone planning on watching ABC Daytime's new cooking show The Chew; premiering in All My Children's old time slot?

    Chris you are joking right? I would not watch that show if it were the only thing on network television. I am not supporting ABC daytime anymore after OLTL goes off the air.

    ROFLMAO! I was counting down to your reaction to this!

    I just thought I'd ask because I'm seeing commercial promos for it all the time now.

    Never heard of it. I "watch" enough cooking shows as it is on The Food Network that my wife watches when I'm on the computer.

    The show looks like a seriously bad parody of a cooking show. 4/5 of the cast would annoy me without the replacing the soaps factor. Not exactly a good recipe for the show. lol Do they actually think that some guy wearing flashing colors telling me to use different plates to make the meal more interesting is going to be compelling television? (Or my favorite, the many uses we can find for a cake dish. I mean, SERIOUSLY? lol That segment is just so PAINFULLY bad. FORGIVENESS MAN Are they going to tell me the different ways I can transfer soup from the pot to the bowl next? Let's see, there's over the arm, under, or maybe I can do a little interpretive dance with the soup in the ladle first...)

    ABC hopes 'The Chew' can win over daytime viewers

    By LEANNE ITALIE, Associated Press – Aug 30, 2011

    NEW YORK (AP) — Gnaw on this: Can some of food and style TV's biggest stars, Mario Batali and Clinton Kelly among them, help ABC soap fans get over cancellation of their favorite stories? The network's counting on it for "The Chew."

    Iron Chef or Martha Stewart this isn't. Nor will the five co-hosts take on top news of the day like their cousins over at "The View" once the show premieres live on Sept. 26 in place of "All My Children" and "One Life to Live."

    What you'll see is simple, fun tips for cheap and easy living. During a recent practice run, the ever-adorable Iron Chef Michael Symon salted skirt steak as he shared about his Greek-Sicilian mother and made it clear: Vinaigrette is two parts fat to one part acid.

    Kelly, co-host of TLC's "What Not to Wear," urged parents to bring their kids back to the dinner table by letting them draw on butcher block paper for placemats. Got some shriveled citrus? Don't let it go to waste. Slice it up and float it in a vase topped by a cheery hydrangea blossom.

    If it sounds like stuff the more sophisticated Stewart might have thought up in kindergarten, you're right, but that's OK with Chew's executive producer, Gordon Elliott. He's going for "easily digestible, pardon the pun." Besides, the food porn's good with lots of delectable close-ups.

    Elliott explains: "People don't have time to sit for an hour and watch a story. ABC came to me and said we've had great success with 'The View' but we'd like to get into food. I thought 'The View,' food, 'The Chew.' We do more than just chop and chat. Our co-hosts are relatable."

    True, they are. It's also true that people may not sit in the middle of the day. But that's why DVRs were invented, so folk like the soap faithful can relax after dinner with their decades-old shows.

    Will they be firing them up for "The Chew," or tuning out altogether to chase down their soaps online?

    "I really don't believe that disgruntled refugees from 'All My Children' and 'One Life to Live' will swallow 'The Chew,'" said TV analyst Shari Anne Brill. "This is about how it's become more expensive to produce scripted content. The audience has shifted."

    So, this shifting audience. Is it the same audience already wondering just who the heck Chew co-cost Daphne Oz and design expert Evette Rios even are?

    Oz wrote the best-selling "The Dorm Room Diet" and is the daughter of TV doc Mehmet Oz, for the record. She opened up during the Chew run-through — in front of a live audience — about her upbringing as a vegetarian.

    Rios was featured speeding through Oz's tiny New York City kitchen on a taped makeover that included, yes, a pegboard for extra hanging storage. Did you know there's something called stainless steel paint? In case you can't afford appliances in the real thing.

    Rounding out the Chew crew is the extremely animated Carla Hall, a "Top Chef" finalist and perky fan favorite who brings on a never-say-die approach to catastrophe in the kitchen. If the top cracks on your cheesecake, for instance, don't get mad, discouraged, depressed. Cover it up with a world of whip cream and berries.

    Promos for "The Chew" have begun airing, already annoying the soap faithful, some of whom took to the sidewalk at ABC Studios in April to protest when the network canceled their shows. They handed out leaflets that declared "The Chew" and other replacements "glorified infomercials appropriate for late-night basic cable channels, not for a major broadcast network."

    Robin Blum, 61, has been watching "All My Children" since it went on the air 41 years ago. She has a small business making greeting cards that double as bookmarks. Hence, she's home.

    "AMC got me through two childbirths, a brain tumor, a broken leg, several tropical storms when I lived in the Virgin Islands and 9/11 in New York City," she said.

    "It is not an entertainment form that has outlived its usefulness. It's idiotic that the programmers are now substituting 'The Chew.' How barbaric, for what has essentially become a part of so many people's lives and has created so many moments of high emotion, tears and laughter," Blum added.

    Could "The Chew" stir up that kind of devotion from its audience? Unlikely, said Lisa Morris, the 35-year-old owner of a boutique travel agency in New York. "ABC keeps replacing good shows with this crappy, cheap, reality TV," she said. "Is paying writers really so much of a sacrifice to the networks?"

    Brian Frons, ABC's daytime president, said the bulk of women viewers aren't watching soaps. They're watching chat, reality, entertainment and style.

    "It was time to look at programming for the majority of women who were watching TV," he said when he popped in on "The Chew."

    Soap fans aside, daytime viewers who already know more than a little something about cooking, raising kids or fixing up their homes may not stomach "The Chew." Or those looking for discourse on issues related to food, like the obesity epidemic, fracking and the food supply or the state of nutrition in schools.

    Symon talked of fresh ingredients as healthy ones as he let fly with his endearing, high-pitched laugh and munched on mac 'n cheese with buffalo chicken. The chat on Chew, Frons said, will remain on the frothy side.

    Do, however, watch for pop-in guests from the Food Network and elsewhere in the TV chef world.

    Brill said ABC's morning chatter on "The View" will offer Chew a nudge, at least for awhile.

    "It'll help, but the new show will have to stand on its own," she said. "Audiences are very fickle. There's too many places to go."

    Good points brought up by the author. I can't wait for the Chew to fall flat on its face. Maybe Frons will get the boot then.

    I used to watch Top Chef. Didn't know a black chick actually won it. Cool beans.
