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!

Cady McClain Remembers ‘All My Children’ On Its 50th Anniversary Sharing: “I Will Always Be Grateful For the Experience, and For The Lifelong Relationship With All The Fans”

The beloved All My Children first aired on January 5th, 1970 on ABC and ran on the network until it was canceled back in September of 2013.  The next year, the show received a short-lived reboot online via Prospect Park.

One of the actresses to appear in both the network and online version was Daytime Emmy winning actress Cady McClain, who became soap-famous for her role as Dixie Cooney Martin and together with Michael E. Knight, became one of soaps all-time popular duos as Tad and Dixie.

While so many miss All My Children every single day and the indelible characters created by the late, great Agnes Nixon, McClain took to her Instagram on Sunday to relate what the soap opera meant to her in her life.

Here is what Cady shared along with a cover of Soap Opera Digest featuring Michael Knight and herself as Tad and Dixie: “Today I am celebrating the 50th Anniversary of “All My Children”! I started on the show when I had just turned 19 in the fall of 1988. I worked as a contract player thru 1996. I was back in the fall of 1997 again under contract and worked through 2001. That’s roughly 13 years. Then I came back for a year in 2006, then for a couple months in 2012. Then I did the internet version for six weeks and then… the show was done.

John Legend To Guest Star on 'This Is Us'

For many years this show and the people on it were like family to me. The makeup artists as much mom’s as my own mom to me at times. And thanks to the work I was able to afford some art school and college as well. I saw many great shows (both American and International) that came to NYC, which opened my eyes to what performance could be. It allowed me to do a lot of Off-Broadway theater and roles in five Indie films while working my day job.

I was nominated three times and won my first Emmy. I made some lifelong friends like Michael E. Knight, James Patrick Stewart, Jill Larson, Penny Bergman, Julia Barr, Lonnie Quinn and many others both in front of and behind the scenes. And most importantly, I was able to take care of my wild but wonderful mother. ‘She who drove me nuts’ but impressed on me the importance of having art in ones life. Who read me poems and took me to museums. My child who died but who I so grateful to have known. Thank you ABC and all the producers and writers who supported me and my work. Because of your support my life was richer, broader, more interesting. I will always be grateful for the experience …. and for the lifelong relationship with all the fans! Massive shout out to the daytime fans who continue to support me in my projects. When I meet one of you on the street I am truly grateful for your time and that we got to share some really special moments together. . .”
