  • Decent concept, bad casting

    2.0
    This sow is an unusual mix of personalities, and sometimes that's a good thing. Unfortunately not here. Michael Symon, Mario Batali and Clinton Kelly seem to make every effort to blend and share in the group conversation portions of the show. Daphne, who is completely unqualified to even be on this type show (her college degree is liberal arts; nothing to do with diet and nutrition which she professes to be an expert in), has gotten more aggressive in her efforts to shout over the other hosts. I'd of thought after the first three seasons she would mellow and feel secure with her position. Carla Hall acts like a battier loudmouthed nut case as the show has progressed. She literally screams on the show, and you can see her cast mates just cringe. She grabs at food like a refugee who hasn't eaten in days, and wolfs it down during the CONVERSATION portion of the show!! She really thinks everyone wants to see her dance also.



    This season seems to have gotten worse. That producer Gordon Elliot (fired from several Food Network shows) is now having them perform clownishly at the beginning of each episode. Dancing, pretending they are the cast of Friends... its so silly. Mario Batali, a world wide respected chef is clearly uncomfortable with this, and I don't blame him. There are more game show stunts and celebs. coming on from other ABC shows that they are required to promote and fawn over.



    Sad to say, I'm leaving. Michael & Mario - get your own show. I'll be the first one there.moreless
  • Todays show a disaster

    5.0
    We were late due to directions from NJ;we were told to come back for the next showing and when we returned only to be told they would not approve our tickets and would we like to see the view taping instead.

    I said no we spent over 50.00 to travel to NYC to see the Chew. We deserve VIP tickets for 3 people.

    Very disappointing and the staff were very insensitive and the manager told us too bad i come in to work from NJ every day to work. Very disrespectful to fans. We even waited for standby tickets and then turned away. 5,9moreless
  • Recipe Ingredients Used Frequently

    10
    Why is it that when you say, "You will have most of these ingredients already in your pantry!" that I am lucky if I have one or two of the 15? You do not use the most COMMON ingredients in your recipes. My cooking is very simply, HOME cooking, and that is what I am looking for more of on tv! Also WHY oh WHY must you make everything so HOT?? Many of us out here would like to TASTE our food, not have our taste buds burnt off by hot peppers and hot sauce. PLEASE try to cook some food this season that has some taste instead of just being HOT, and that does use more common ingredients. There are many of us out here who will be very happy if you do! THANK YOU! I'll be watching to see what happens.moreless
  • Michael Symon's laugh

    7.0
    I love, love, love The Chew, and have been a faithful viewer for a long time. I have learned so much from the show, and I'm a huge fan of all five co-hosts. Carla, Daphne, Clinton, Mario, and Michael are truly fantastic, but there is one thing that makes my teeth cringe, the hair stand up on the back of my neck, and my ears hurt. That is Michael Symon's laugh. I try to avoid listening to it by blocking it out, I try to stay calm and know his laugh will only last a few seconds, and that the show means more to me than his annoying, startling, and overly loud laugh, but enough is enough. I've decided to only "watch The Chew" by way of Facebook posts and stop watching the show on TV. Sorry Michael - I tried, but I just can't listen to one more burst of cackle from you. And yes, I know others will disagree, and many more could care less about how I feel, but I needed to make a final closure from my "brake-up relationship" with the show, and this post is how I choose to do so. Goodbye The Chew. I will miss you, but I'll still see your happy faces on Facebook.moreless
  • The Chew

    2.0
    After seeing a bakery (Ovenly) recommended on a show a short time ago, I went to Brooklyn to try the cake that the cast raved about. It was probably the worst chocolate cake that I have ever tasted. I have great respect for Mario Batali and Michael Symon and have had their food on several occasions so I don't understand this.
