From daytime’s talk show The View came the play on words for All My Children’s replacement called The Chew, and while this talk/foodie daytime series is staying put as of now, the primetime branch of the ABC Television Network is about to launch a new reality competition series called, The Taste! 

The Taste is a mid-season replacement series which the alphabet network is touting in its official show description as:  “One blind spoonful could change everything, on the all new alternative series, The Taste, premiering with a two-hour show Tuesday January 22nd (8:00-10:00 p.m., ET; the show moves to its regular 8:00-9:00 p.m. time period on January 29), on The ABC Television Network.  An exhilarating new one-hour cooking competition, The Taste puts 16 culinary competitors — pro chefs to home cooks — to the fire when four of the world’s most notable masters of the food world judge their creations based on a blind taste test. In this pressure-packed contest, the taste in a single spoonful can catapult a contender to the top or send him packing.

“The Taste features no-holds barred chef Anthony Bourdain, British food star Nigella Lawson, expert chef/author Ludo Lefebvre and chef/restaurateur Brian Malarkey. Each of the four culinary superstars and “Taste” mentors – Bourdain, Lawson, Lefebvre and Malarkey – will coach a team of four competing pro and amateur cooks chosen from a nationwide casting call, as they vie to create the best tasting dish in a state of the art kitchen. In each episode, the groups will face team and individual challenges with a variety of culinary themes through several elimination rounds. At the end of each episode, the mentors will have to judge the competitors’ dishes blind, with no knowledge of whose creation they’re sampling, what they’re eating, how it was prepared or whom they could be sending home.”

Give it a rest ABC!! Don’t you get it, people watch The Cooking Channel or Foodnetwork for food related shows. Stick to scripted shows!!

ABC is big on chasing of the latest trend, and competition shows involving food are big on cable, so they are trying to get a slice of that pie- excuse the pun. But I for one will not watch. There are so many competition shows on right now that it is getting to point of being absurd. Like that show coming up Diving with the Stars, where D list celebrities compete in a diving competition. Diving is rather boring to watch at the best of times, but watching some old has been jump into a pool of water wearing his Speedo sounds like something one should only watch if you are under the age of 30 and high.

Gee, just what we need, another reality/talk/competition/cooking show. NOT!!!

I am predicting that The Taste will likely go the way of The Revolution and Good Afternoon America, and that some other network will, moreover, be eating ABC/D’s breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Once again, this is why we have a dedicated food network a la The Chew aka SPEW and its notorious Tip Skimmer aka Tip Thief.

LOVE Nigella. Voluptuous and exquisite, she knows how to cook and she loves to eat what she cooks (unlike Giada). It sounds crazy but I always imagined a woman like her to play Patrick deceased mom on GH.

As for the show…..ZZzzzz. A two hour premiere? Not likely for me to sit through. I’ll stick to the Food Network.

I could care less! I have been watching NCIS on Tues. at 8:00p.m. for years and I will
continue watching NCIS… The Taste doesn’t stand a chance against NCIS! The Taste has put a sour taste in my mouth. These kind of shows don’t work on daytime & won’t
work on primetime either…When will ABC ever learn their lesson!

Ripa went on to to tell her co-host: “A gentleman of, I mean, Ryan, you two would have loved each other. He would say the funniest things and we were all going through our brains about all of the funny, like the funny ‘Callahan-isms’ over the years. He was just one of these guys and you know and he just died way too soon. His daughter and my daughter are good friends, they’re the same age and I just want everyone to know, Eva and Kaya, that we are thinking of you and we are just so sad and so devastated. So, I apologize in advance if I seem out of it. I really actually am, I’m terribly out of it. You know, forgive me for it.”

May Flights of Angels Wing You to Your Rest my Dear Friend. Your bigger than life, gregarious personality will leave a hole in our hearts forever. We are devastated-My great friend, co parent partner, and loving father to Kaya. That big belly laugh, bear hugs, bad puns, ability to harmonize to any song, great kitchen table singing-fests, and two steppin bad ass! “Johnny Numbers”, my All My Children soap stud, the great time keeper, Beatles fanatic ( I wish to God we could go back to “Yesterday”)… Kaya and I are beyond broken hearted, so stunned, sorry that my thoughts are a mess.
