The Chew is an American cooking-themed talk show that airs on ABC as part of the network's weekday daytime lineup. The name and format was inspired by fellow ABC talk show, The View, but The Chew centers on food-related and lifestyle topics rather than celebrity news.
The program also airs in Canada on City. A limited number of ABC affiliates in the Central Time Zone, where it airs with the East at 1 p.m. ET/noon Central, air the program on a one-day delay (maintaining the delay schedule All My Children followed before it was ended; this delays the Friday episode to Monday) in order to continue airing their noon hour local newscasts.
First Lady Michelle Obama tapes a segment of The Chew in New York on September 23, 2014. Participants with the First Lady from left are: Michael Symon, "Let's Move!" Executive Director Sam Kass, Mario Batali, Daphne Oz, Carla Hall and Clinton Kelly.
The show's first cookbook, "The Chew: Food. Life. Fun.", was released on September 25, 2012. The follow-up, "The Chew: What's For Dinner", was released on September 24, 2013. A third book, "The Chew: A Year of Celebrations", was released on September 23, 2014.
