The Chew was an American cooking-themed talk show that aired for seven seasons from September 26, 2011 to June 28, 2018, having replaced the soap opera All My Children, 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 centered on food-related and lifestyle topics rather than the news of the day.[2]

In April 2015, The Chew won the Daytime Emmy Award for Outstanding Informative Talk Show Host. This is the show's first Emmy win and also the first Daytime Emmy nomination and first win for each of the five co-hosts.[3][4]

On May 23, 2018, ABC announced that they canceled The Chew after a seventh season and would not renew it for an eighth season.[5][6] The last taped episode aired on June 15, 2018, with new, but pre-recorded episodes airing until June 28, and repeats continuing until September 7; the Good Morning America brand extension GMA Day replaced it on Monday, September 10.[1]

Background[edit]

The Chew premiered on September 26, 2011,[2] and replaced the soap opera All My Children.[7] It was hosted for seven seasons by Michael Symon, Carla Hall and Clinton Kelly (the show's moderator). Wellness expert Daphne Oz also hosted for the program's first six seasons[8] while, in December 2017, chef Mario Batali stepped down,[9] and was later officially terminated, from hosting the show amid sexual misconduct allegations.[10][11]

The Chew was produced by British-Australian former talk show host Gordon Elliott, who also served as the show's announcer and has occasional on-camera roles.[12] The show was taped at ABC's Lincoln Square facilities at 30 West 67th Street on Manhattan's Upper West Side.[13]

The show was ultimately not able to survive the bad publicity and lower ratings stemming from the Batali sexual assault scandal. On May 23, 2018, ABC announced that The Chew was canceled after the seventh season, and the final taped episode aired on June 15, 2018, with new but pre-recorded episodes airing until June 28, and repeats continuing until in September 7, being replaced with GMA Day.

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.

Broadcast[edit]

The Chew aired at 1:00 pm Eastern/12 noon Central, the slot formerly occupied by the long-running soap opera All My Children. ABC stations in the Mountain and Pacific time zones, and in Alaska and Hawaii follow a Central time zone schedule for daytime programming; thus, The Chew is scheduled by the network to air at 12 noon in these areas.

A limited number of ABC affiliates in the Central Time Zone air the program on a one-day delay at 11:00 am (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 such as WFAA in Dallas, KRGV-TV in Weslaco, Texas and WBRZ-TV in Baton Rouge, Louisiana; three stations, WBAY-TV in Green Bay, Wisconsin, KSAT-TV in San Antonio and KMIZ in Columbia, Missouri, have network permission to tape-delay the program same-day to avert situations where episodes with recipes timed to a specific holiday are rendered useless due to the delay.[14]

The Chew aired on a 7-day delay basis weeknights at 8:00 pm Eastern/7:00 pm Central on the Live Well Network. The program also aired in Canada on City.[15]
