THE CHEW To Have Primetime Special To Preview ABC's Fall Line-Up!

Courtesy/ABC

Courtesy/ABC

Now here is a paradoxical twist!  ABC is giving the cookie/foodie daytime series, The Chew, and it’s hosts, some primo real estate with a special episode to introduce the network’s  fall line-up of their hottest news shows and stars in primetime!  With a tag line in the official press release of “The Chew Takes A Bite Out Of ABC’s New Fall Season,” the episode will air on September 2nd. (7PM-8PMEST)

Here is what we know will go down:  The merry band of  “Chew” cooking co-horts;  Mario Batali, Michael Symon, Carla Hall, Clinton Kelly and Daphne Oz travel coast to coast — from California and New York to Hawaii and Nashville — to bring viewers a sneak peek at the ABC Fall Primetime lineup. Interviewing some of the network’s hottest new stars, the special has something for everyone.  From diva-filled musical drama and deep and dark desires to quirky and “out of this world” comedies and thrillers.

Highlights of the special include:  666 Park Avenue stars Vanessa Williams and Terry O’Quinn  enjoy cocktails and canapés with Clinton Kelly from a chic Manhattan hotel room to talk about their sexy, seductive new primetime address.
Carla Hall travels home as she visits  Nashville star Hayden Panettiere  on the legendary stage of The Grand Ole Opry and visits with her co-stars, Clare Bowen and Sam Palladio, at the iconic Bluebird Cafe.

Aloha from Oahu, Hawaii, the breathtaking location for ABC’s new action adventure series, Last Resort, premiering   Series star Andre Braugher sits oceanside with Daphne Oz for comfort food, conversation and a hometown surprise, all amidst the palm trees and island breeze.

Carla Hall catches up with the stars of the new family comedy series The Neighbors at Johnnie’s Coffee Shop in Los Angeles, where Jami Gertz and other stars share a preview of their quirky new sitcom that’s sure to bring the family together for a night of laughs. ”

It’s a food truck fiesta as Daphne Oz meets country music superstar Reba McIntyre to talk about her new sitcom, Malibu Country, which premieres Friday, November 2 at 8:30 p.m., ET.    Gordon Elliott is the executive producer of  The Chew Presents ABC’s Primetime Fall Primetime Special.

So soapers; interesting that ABC is giving The Chew a shot at primetime to introduce their fall line-up!  Wonder if the cast of General Hospital was even considered?  Doubtful.    If The Chew can have a primetime slot to cross promote themselves, maybe we can get a primetime special to properly finish up OLTL and AMC …  or to call attention to GH’s upcoming 50th Anniversary!  Just sayin’    Thoughts?

just sounds like a desperate attempt to bring the chew into peoples livings rooms…who dont watch…i dont care what ratings say i find it hard to believe anyone is watching that garbage…except for doctor offices, salons etc that have their tvs on abc all day long.

Michael, again it just shows how much ABC does not know about their audience. I betcha they have really lousy ratings for this. It’s so obvious how much they want this stupid show to succeed.

I wish GH was given the consideration and, I agree, it would be nice for AMC and OLTL to have been given this consideration as well. They just do not care.

Now that ID is doing a soap alternative programming block, I may have to break boycott and start watching The Chew and DVRing The Talk! After all, the shows on ID are just as much “soap killers” as The Chew, The Talk, etc. I had been standing strong with fans of AMC and OLTL, but OLTL what? AMC who?! Days of Our Lives, when?! If soap fans can be lured away from the remaining 4 soaps by crappy reality TV programming like this and ID’s ridiculously titled Days of Our Knives, then we’re all going to be watching crappy reality… Read more »

I’m with you, Matt. I just made a personal choice last week to give up ALL the reality shows that I watch which was not many, but considered reality: Amazing Race, Survivor, Hoarders, and Master Chef. I never watched absolute garbage like the Kardashian show, but since the above-mentioned were considered reality and I am really sick of this genre taking over, I can’t be middle-of-the-road and so I have decided to give it ALL up. If the networks are determined to take away our soap genre for the likes of reality then I will turn to DVDs (since I… Read more »

I don’t watch the Chew during the daytime hours, and I’M NOT GOING TO WATCH during primetime hours!!! Give it a rest, ABC and quit pimping this show that no one is interested in. The only reason why they haven’t cancelled this show, is because they are trying to save face. The ratings for this show aren’t that great either. And I don’t need to watch a primetime special featuring these losers to know what’s going on in the Fall for ABC….All you have to do is go online, or better yet get just wait until the Fall and watch… Read more »

I’m all for cross-promos, but I won’t be watching this one. I don’t watch ABC primetime or The Chew. I would however support a primetime movie or mini-series to properly end AMC & OLTL, and one to celebrate GH’s 50th. I have emailed TPTB suggesting these things. It would go a long way in restoring the ABC Daytime fanbase they have now lost with their programming changes.

My first thought exactly, why can’t AMC and OLTL have a prime time episode to finish off their shows. This just further shows how much abc sucks! Talk about another kick in the teeth to the fans. I can’t wait for Katie to tank, and the chew to drop lower in the ratings…and then they’ll be left wondering, what did we do wrong???

Tilting my head… Why does ABC continue to force feed America The Chew? I could see a nighttime edition of The View previewing the new Fall schedule. Or perhaps even a special episode of Castle. That would have been kinda cute, but The Chew? That train wreck of show? Embarrassing! It’s a sad grasping at ratings. Do they think that they will suddenly climb in the ratings by way of this stunt? If ABC were a friend, rather than a network, I would have already suggested therapy. Just picture it. Why would anyone want to watch those five people preview… Read more »

Wow…a primetime edition of The Chew. This to me signifies how much of a letdown the ratings have been. ABC cannot understand for the life of them how this show is just NOT clicking with its audience. I mean, my goodness, just how many recipes can one person have? How much forced host back & forth bantering should make us all fall in love with them? Oh, that Carla! Isn’t Mario a hunk! Sorry ABC, your just found support of GH is great & all but I’m still mighty peeved of your past actions as they have had devasting impacts… Read more »

The soaps are the orphans at ABC when it comes to promotion. Maybe those who view “The Chew” at 7 pm will appreciate what soapers have had to “chew” on this past year.

Is this a joke what is the Chew doing having a primetime special because its a cooking show thats introducing some of the new ABC Primetime series i think i will pass watching it.

Considering I totally ignore ABC except for General Hospital this special is useless for viewers like me.

Let The Chew permanently move to primetime. See how well the primetime audience responds to them.

Then bring back both AMC and OLTL. If they can’t fit them in the schedule, reduce them to a half-hour format like B&B.

Wow, is the Chew still on? Probably dying a slow death by choking. I haven’t watched ANY ABC programming since OLTL went off the air. I’m past their all-important age demographic of 18-49 so they don’t care what I think anyway. Screw the Chew and screw ABC.

Absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE the idea of GH getting a PRIME TIME SPECIAL in honor of the shows 50th Anniversary! A 2 hour special is the LEAST that ABC can give to GH after all that they’ve done in the past 16 or so months to daytime!

Also, ABC Daytime needs to put up now and “walk the walk” and do what they said they were going to do; “Fully Support GH!”. They can start by airing a lot of GH commercials honoring the Anniversary into their top prime time shows next Spring!

Would it have been so difficult to do this kind of cross promotion with its daytime star in recent years… Lucct, Geary, et al.? This will not help THE CHEW (Labor Day Weekend evenings are not top draw in any year) but the idea has merit. But it should have been done long ago with our AMC, OLTL, and GH actors and celebrities, right?

Primetime Spew showcasing the hide-the-tips Gang? What Dumber than Dummer (or is that the Froweenie?) suit in Burbank came up with this bone-headed idea? Duh..Dum….let me guess…One thing about them is their continued intransigence and unwillingness to change in the face of hard evidence – that their actions- – are COUNTERPRODUCTIVE. I read a well-documented book about that once, with a fact-filled conclusions chapter, too, regarding the contemporary follies many of ABC/Disney…

TONIGHT: All My Children’s Debbi Morgan and Darnell Williams Together Again on All-New Episode of ‘Our Kind of People’

The Fox drama, Our Kind of People (9 pm ET/8pm CT), will feature a reunion, of sorts, on tonight’s January 18th episode when Debbi Morgan (Ex-Angie, All My Children) once again shares screen-time with her former on-screen soap opera love, Darnell Williams (Ex-Jesse, All My Children).

While mum’s the word as to Williams role, we know that Debbi plays Angela’s Aunt Piggy on the series, and in last week’s installment, Piggy went to the police station to turn herself in for the murder of her ex-boyfriend years ago.  However, Darnell’s character could hold the key as to what really went down in the murder.

Debbi spoke to TV Line about acting again with Darnell: “We were shooting the scene when Darnell’s character walks through the door for the first time.  And it was the first time we see this character on the show, and I looked at him and shouted, ‘Jesse!’ The director had to yell cut and everyone fell out laughing. It was hilarious. I knew that wasn’t his name on Our Kind of People but I couldn’t help myself. We worked together for so many years as Angie and Jesse and that’s the first thing that came to my mind.”

For those who have not checked out Our Kind of People, it takes place in the aspirational world of Oak Bluffs on Martha’s Vineyard, a historical stronghold where the rich and powerful Black elite have come to play for over 50 years.

In story, strong-willed single mom Angela Vaughn (Ex-AMC star, Yaya Decosta) sets out to reclaim her family’s name and make an impact with her revolutionary hair care line that highlights the innate, natural beauty of Black women, but she soon discovers a dark secret about her own mother’s past that will turn her world upside-down and shake up this community forever. The show is a soapy, thrilling exploration of race and class in America and an unapologetic celebration of Black resilience and achievement.

The series is from writer and executive producer Karin Gist (Star, Grey’s Anatomy) and executive producer Lee Daniels (Empire, The United States Vs. Billie Holiday).

So, will you be watching Debbi and Darnell together on tonight’s Our Kind of People? Comment below.

Three-Time Daytime Emmy Winner, Cady McClain, Reveals She’s ‘Back On Set’ But On Which Show?

After her Instagram post earlier this week, fans of Cady McClain have been attempting to dissect her cryptic tease of a message. McClain, a three-time Daytime Emmy winner, shared the good news with fans that she is ‘back to work’, except she didn’t share which show or project she is working on … just yet!

In her post, McClain teased: “Back on set! Fun to be working again on such a terrific show! Can’t wait to be able to share the news with you all soon! Meantime, hoping you are all taking good care of yourselves. Sending hugs!! ”

Now, it could be Cady is working on a primetime show, not a daytime show, but we shall see.

She has previously appeared on The Young and the Restless and Days of our Lives of the four remaining daytime soaps.  On Y&R she played Kelly Andrews, and on DAYS, Jennifer Horton Deveraux.  And, as viewers of the NBC soap saw this week, Jennifer (in a short appearance by Melissa Reeves) returned to Salem with Jack (Matthew Ashford), only to tie-up loose ends over the holidays and exit the show.

Since DAYS still tapes months ahead, could McClain be returning there, or might she pop up on GH and B&B? The character of Kelly was killed-off of Y&R back in 2015.

Previously, Cady became soap-famous for her roles as Dixie Cooney Martin on All My Children and Rosanna Cabot on As the World Turns.

Share your thoughts on which show you hope Cady is working on, whether, primetime, daytime, or a streaming series, in the comment section below.
