The Chew: Daytime on ABC

Every once in awhile a gem of a tv show pops up and I cannot help but shoot a post about it. The Chew is one such family-friendly food-focused  fabulous find Monday-Friday 1:00 eastern! It replaced the long-time running All My Children in that time slot. I dvr just about everything nowadays. My dvr is perfect for this program. I don't want to miss a single show! You will understand why after watching it for the first time. The co hosts are Clinton Kelly, Mario Batali, Michael Symon (love him!), Carla Hall and Daphne Oz.

Check out a sample below. You can see more at

Carla Hall is one of those people you want in your life. She exudes warmth, unconditional love and a proud heritage and an unabashedly exuberant joyous excitement for family and cooking for family. No doubt each co host intertwined their love of cooking with family, but Carla Hall doesn't just talk about it. Her whole body literally does a happy dance when it is her turn to share her recipes.

I was not as wowed as the rest of the watching world when Paula Deen was the celebrity guest last week. She kind of took over and cut off my new The Chew bff Carla Hall. I don't care how famous you are - you are still a guest and grandstanding never is acceptable. I was shocked when Paula Deen double dipped into the pudding and then leaned over the entire bowl to dig in for more. Gross!

Other than a few minor infractions this show rocks!!! I am glad it is not rehearsed and polished to perfection. I enjoy the spontaneity so very much. Can't wait for Monday's The Chew!

  1. I haven't seen yet, but I've been intrigued as to what was going to fill the void in Daytime TV. I heard some talk about it on radio earlier this week, but they didn't actually review. Thx
    btw, totally agree with you re. Paula Deen. I cannot watch anything anymore where she is cooking! The double dipping is the least of it -- she has a bad habit of licking her fingers while prepping or mixing! gross!!!

  2. Hey I know this is off topic but I was wondering if you knew
    of any widgets I could add to my blog that automatically tweet my
    newest twitter updates. I've been looking for a plug-in like this for quite some time and was hoping maybe you would have some experience with something like this. Please let me know if you run into anything. I truly enjoy reading your blog and I look forward to your new updates.
