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.”

Doesn’t this sound like The Voice meets The Chew meets Top Chef? Watch a promo for The Taste below! Then, let us know your thoughts and if you would be interested in tuning in?

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!

The Chew Cancelled After 7 Seasons; A Slice Of Justice For All My Children Fans?

Karma is a bitch! ABC announced yesterday that the foodie series The Chew has been axed after seven seasons. 

The Chew lost significant viewers when ABC fired main co-host chef, Mario Batali after reports of alleged sexual harassment over many years. Clinton Kelly, Carla Hall, and Michael Symon have remained the regular series hosts.

In addition, The Chew dropped 17% with women in the 18-49 demo and this has been its least watched season since its debut in 2011.  As ABC Daytime fans know, The Chew replaced iconic soap opera All My Children, when ABC made the decision to cancel the beloved soap and replace it with the food show.

So, let’s take a look at the numbers: All My Children lasted 41 years, while The Chew lasted 7 seasons. Hmm …

ABC noted that The Chew will cease production at the end of this season, but will continue to air until September with all-new episodes in June.  In addition, ABC announced that Good Morning America will expand to three hours.  Thus, switching up the ABC morning line-up.

So, are you glad that The Chew got fried?  Is this justice for All My Children fans who miss their beloved Pine Valley?  Comment below.

All My Children Alum Kim Delaney Joins The Cast of CHICAGO FIRE!

Photo Credit: HutchinsPhoto.com

Pine Valley’s Jenny Gardner, who is all grown up and had a successful career in primetime television and films, has landed a primo role on NBC’s hit drama, Chicago Fire!

Casting news has revealed that Kim Delaney is joining the show in Season 6 where she will play the role of Jennifer Sheridan, the mother of Kelly Severide (Taylor Kinney).

According to Deadline, Kim’s new role as Jennifer Sheridan is described as “warm, scripture-quoting and church-going. At one point she may have partied like it was 1979, but now it looks like she’s on the path of the straight and narrow. If you ask her, she’s moved on from the past, namely her messy divorce from her ex-husband Benny (Treat Williams), but old habits die very hard.”

Chicago Fire is currently on hiatus until after the Winter Olympics, when it begins again on March 1st.  As viewers know, in the last episode prior to the break, Kelly and Casey (Jesse Spenver) were seen jumping off a roof of a building while it was in flames in an exciting cliffhanger. (more…)
