After hearing a lot of hype about this show was bankrolled by Oprah, today I finally saw a commercial for its premiere (in September).
Now, I personally happen to love Rachael Ray. I love her crazed, goofy perkiness, but I also have come to realize the things I find endearing in her annoy the bejeebus out of other people. I remember being surprised by the amount of enmity towards her in the old Food Network threads.
Are any other people looking forward to this show? Am I the only one? Like I said, I love Rachael Ray, but I do understand some people's criticism of her...I'm starting to wonder if she's best in small doses and if I'm at risk to experience RR backlash.
Is she branching out from food, but still featuring some on her new show? Is the format an Oprah clone, or will it be unique for daytime? What are her chances for success? Do people think this will fail, and she should just sick to Food Network?
