The CHEW

With the continual ad running all thru chowhound, will we be able to honestly critique this show. I'm sick of it already and it hasn't even aired. I do like Karla and Michael though, the rest, meh. Marios ego is bigger then his tired old shorts and orange crocks.

  1. Ok...who's playing the role of Barbara Walters and who gets to be Whoopie?

      That's the best quote ever...I hate the "View" I hope this show does not dissolve to that. I will watch it like a train wreck ...hopefully that everyone gets out alive:)

      1. re: chris2269

        It will be a hit regardless.They have targeted the same demographic and time slots that made RR and The View a staple of bored housewife viewing. I'm over Mario and his overexposed patter and mug,and do we really need another Oz on television?but the other players could prove to be entertaining and lively.

    2. Only through the first segment and the camera work/directing needs help. They don't follow the action very well.

      1. I just watched a few minutes & then switched the channel. Definitely not my cup of tea.

        Oh, & for the person who mentioned Whoopi, she's slated to be on the show tomorrow - lol!

          Nice... so all that is missing is the obligatory host with a thick British or Australian accent to get hearts aflutter.

                The other hosts wouldn't stand for it - he'd just make everyone look fat by comparison.

            1. re: Duppie

              Gordon Elliot is the narrator - that should suffice for the accent.

                I did not know that... that not only makes sense but actually fills the British/Australian accent criteria prevalent recently in network television shows and ads. Which by the way is already passe in anticipation of the newest trend of featuring South Asians.

            2. I like Carla. She needs to tone down a tiny bit of the manic-ness she showed during her segment, but I liked her overall.

              1. Haven't watched it yet, but the name is a little odd. Makes me think I'm going to watch a show about a Chinese person...
