Thanks Scotty. This going to be a disaster and I can't wait to see how it plays out. This show seems lame. DUH they have 24 hour cooking channels Just watch those.ABC = idiots. They better get daytime shows lined up for fall of 2012, they are going to need it

"People don't have time to sit for an hour and watch a story."

But they have been doing it for how many decades now? This guy needs to STFU.

Oh but they got time to watch and an hour of cooking and learning tips that we could learn on the Food channel

You're welcome, and I couldn't agree more with your comments. This has disaster written all over it.

The producers and cast of The Chew, the new food-themed daytime talk show that's replacing All My Children and One Life to Live, would like soap fans to give the show a chance. Fat chance: the post on Eater announcing the show has 169 comments — overwhelmingly from rabid soap fans vowing to never go near the thing.

Executive producer Gordon Elliott is taking a realistic view of the situation, telling The Hollywood Reporter, "I hope that they give us a break. And if they just sit down for five minutes they’re going to really enjoy it. And if they don't like it I can't control that."

The soap fans are revolting though: There are even a couple Twitter accounts (@thechewandvomit, @screwthechew) and a Facebook group (Boycott The Chew & The Revolution) dedicated to hastening the show's demise.

Co-host Clinton Kelly, on the other hand, is trying to be optimistic: "We can't be soap operas but we can be a group of people you can hang out with." Also, ex-Top Cheftestapant and co-host Carla Hall hopes "that what we have for them is that takeaway that everybody does eat." Both are excellent points.

And according to THR, ABC has committed to making 220 episodes of The Chew this year.

Oh man, this is really turning into a farce now. Just pure comedy. The crazy fans are hounding them, but they're rebuttals are so weak and lame.

I'm not gonna hope for this show's failure, but [[email protected]#$%^&*], some things are just destined.

And I can't take an article seriously when it gets basic facts wrong:

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."

For me, it all boils down to ABC never lifting a finger to update these damn soaps and make them viable. You can't put a Pinto on the road and expect it to get your ass anywhere.

The Chew is very likely going to end up as a massive failure. The same statement holds true for AMC and OLTL as internet soaps. However, there is a huge double-standard here: When the latter statement is made, one is immediately labeled a "disgruntled P&G soap fan who is bitter that his soaps didn't get saved." On the other hand, I have yet to see anyone at SON label those who predict (and even openly wish that) The Chew will fail as "disgruntled AMC & OLTL viewers." There is no excuse for this type of hypocrisy.

I understand that my "sore loser" attitude is very upsetting to AMC and OLTL fans. However, if there is anything worse than a sore loser, it is a sore winner: somebody who has already won the war (you folks succeeded in saving your beloved Nixon soaps), yet still remains bitter in spite of the victory. (In this instance, it seems that there is a large segment here that never misses a chance to piss on ABC, even though they were willing--unlike P&G--to license their soaps to another company.) Bitterness is a perfectly normal human emotion (if one is a loser), but I simply cannot understand how anyone could be bitter if that person came out a winner.

the Chew just looks awful.

The promos are cringeworthy, their cooking tips comes off as condescending to anyone who has spent more than 5 minutes in the kitchen. (Really...chicken costs less than lobster?)

I might not read every single tread on this board but you really do come off as a disgruntled P&G fan in every post and not because I see other posters calling you that but because you yourself call you that. Sorry but I do not see this double standard that you speak of.
