Show Summary

Rachael Ray does it again. She brings her flair and zest for cooking along with her down-to-earth nature and combines it with her genuine warmth to give us a wonderful new talk show that literally makes you feel right at home. Creative and colorful sets combined with a wide variety of special guests help to make this a great show. She interacts with her audience in such a way that makes you feel as if you are spending that time with a girlfriend. Her question and answer segment where she answers questions from the viewers adds a special touch, and it's a treat to watch her prepare meals alongside her various guests and share conversation as well as culinary tips.

  • She's like the female version of Jim Carrey

    I can't stand her. I don't watch her show because I can't stand talk shows to begin with. But, I can't stand to listen to her. Even when I watched her cooking show years ago I found her voice totally irritating. BTW, Rayus Interuptus, Lydia Bastianich is not a chef. She never attended culinary school of any kind. She is a cook. I can't stand her either. My family is Italian and her food is not well-made. Lydia is merely a cook. There are lots of cooks who are excellent, but not Lydia. At least RR sometimes comes up with good recipes.moreless
  • Rachael is a true narcissist

    "I" this and "Me" that. We get it Rachael, you've experienced every single thing ANY person has done EVER and your story is more important then your guests. She is simply an awful interviewer. She talks over everyone and her voice is so straining, it's uncomfortable to listen to. I have never yelled "SHUT UP" at my tv until I watched this show. She is absolutely disrespectful to her guests, and "one upping" them, which she does constantly. Please NBC read all these reviews which say the same thing and at the very least bring to her attention and at the very most get a new CHEF to host the show or send her to classes to understand what being a gracious, respectful host entails.moreless
  • Rayus Interruptus

    I once heard someone say that what made Johnny Carson such a great host was that he let the guests do the work and he simply reacted. Perhaps Rachael needs to take a lesson from that. Clearly I am not the only one who has noticed and gotten frustrated with her inability to let someone else be the focus of attention for more than 10 seconds. I know, it's HER show. I get it. I have seen her on some other shows and seen her being interviewed (as a guest) and she seems quieter and less egocentric. Maybe a director or someone is telling her to exaggerate her personality? I used to enjoy her show so much more, and I do still watch - but not to see her, but to see her guests or interesting segments. I do get some ideas from the cooking segments also, but it's so difficult to watch! Like so many commenters here, I think it's incredibly annoying to have her speak over her guests ALL the time. When she does let them answer, instead of following up on their response (maybe, "I didn't know that about you! How did growing up in such a big family effect your decision to become a chef?" or something like that), she jumps in with yet another anecdote about HERSELF. I saw her once ask a guest (I forget who, sorry) what was on their bucket list. As soon as they finished answering her, she went into a list of things on HER bucket list. Totally ignored their answer. You have an hour long show, 5 days a week, and can enlighten your audience to all these "fascinating" tidbits of information about yourself when you're cooking by yourself. If you have Morgan Freeman on, I want to hear HIS stories. Not yours. Also, Rachael is a COOK, NOT a trained chef. When you have Rick Bayliss, Curtis Stone, Jacques Pepin, Mario Batali, etc. - trained, successful, world-renowned chefs cooking THEIR recipes on your show, PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE let us hear what they have to say!!! I don't think Jacques Pepin needs you to tell him how to saute mushrooms without drying them out! Or tell Lidia Bastianich to save a cup of the pasta cooking water!

    Now that I've ranted about her poor hosting skills, here are 10 things I am tired of hearing her say:

    1. Anything about her husband.... I know they were married in Italy. I know she buys him salamis for his birthday every year. I know he is a "weekend mixologist". His favorite dish is carbonara. He calls her mother "Mamacello" because she loves lemon so much. Enough already.

    2. That color = flavor in cooking.

    3. The fact that she sets bread on fire. That she needs Jeanette to be her bread toasting "stunt double". My son, who doesn't watch but will occasionally catch a few minutes if he's in the room when I'm watching, once asked me how in the world a person that can't toast bread can have a cooking show on TV. I didn't have an answer.

    4. She uses a truffle shaver to slice her garlic "Paulie-thin". You know, like Paulie from Goodfellas.

    5. She would eat her own arm if you put pretty much anything on it.

    6. It's a good thing John likes garlic, because she smells like it. All the time.

    7. When you make hamburgers, score the meat before you separate it into patties so that you don't make 3 large burgers and then end up with too little meat for the last one and have to steal some from each of the others. That last one is apparently called a "Frankenburger".

    8. "I KNOW!"

    9. How she doesn't have human kids, but has a "65 (?) pound baby", her dog Isaboo. She feels a need to reference this every time someone talks about their own children. Or children in general. Or their pets.

    10. "I love ______!" "I'm obsessed with _____!" "I'm _____'s biggest fan!" Fill in the blanks any way you want, She's said it.

    I wouldn't mind her saying these things once in a while. But she repeats them day after day, show after show, sometimes more than once in a show. That she has to keep giving us the same tired stories and the same tips over and over says she lacks the innovation and creativity it takes to make a show interesting and watchable for a long period of time. She may be a lovely person in her personal life, but this show needs a major overhaul it she wants to keep it going. I still "watch", but unless there's a guest that I really love or I see she's cooking something interesting, it's usually just background noise for me to listen to while I do other things.moreless
  • Rude Rachael and her interruptions

    I have noticed for many years that Rachael constantly interrupts her guests. While she monitors one of her guests cooking a recipe, she constantly interrupts and cuts them off, acting like a" KNOW IT ALL". There are times that I would like to hear what her guests have to say, but they can't even finish a sentence while Rachael opens her big mouth. She is totally rude. It's hard to believe that her producers have not taken care of this problem. Also, she brags and incessantly mentions her mother, her husband, her dog, and her heritage.

    Now it's her new 2015-2016 season, and I see that she is still interrupting her guests. What's with the "sure, sure, sure" and the "right, right, right"? Also,a commercial is played in which she and some of her audience members are doing some kind of a dance around her cooking area, and she lets out a ridiculous, immature, high pitched scream. She is so immature.

    It's always "all about her" when she interrupts a guest and has to mention herself. She is rude, obnoxious, and immature, and she doesn't even seem to get it.moreless
  • Show Host Talking Over Guests far Too Often and its Rude and IRRITATING

    Rachel, like many other tv show hosts seem to think that what they say is more important than the guest. As a matter of fact, many tv show hosts just talk over their guest and get louder and louder if the guest does not stop talking..... I don't know if its a need to be the center of attention or has to control all things. Unfortunately, the viewer does not get to hear much of the guests expertise. We all understand that its Rachels show (or sombodys show) but why have a guest if you are constantly going to talk over them. The interruptions are absolutely out of control and IRRITATING. I really hope the show directors start hearing these complaints and do something about it cuz its really getting in the way and show will loose look at the other comments.
