    Nope, still haven't watched this pablum. I won't watch Katie Couric's talk show either.

    I like The Chew. I watch if when I happen to be not be working that day. I like all of the hosts and their topics. It is mainly a cooking show.

    I watch this sometimes. It is not consistantly good.

    I agree that AMC (never watched it) was taken off for budget reasons and tanking ratings. That is ussually the only reason shows are cancelled.

    For me the big problem is it is just another one of those shows that are a dime a dozen on TV right now.

    I saw the new posts and stopped in to check hoping someone had posted it was being cancelled. No such luck ......yet.

    If I wanted to watch a cooking show, there are many more appealing and better made options on several channels devoted to cooking/food.

    The only way I'd start watching this show is if they changed it from a cooking show to a drama about a bunch of people in a town called Pine Valley.

    Exactly. Other than that, they can kiss my hiney.

    I call them "You're Not Good Enough" shows.
    I'm tired of TV programmers telling me I don't know how to take care of my own life.
    I watch TV for escapism & current events type information/entertainment.

    No Way will I ever watch that show.

    I've had my fill of cooking shows. I used to watch them quite a bit. What bothers me too are the mini cooking segments they do on various shows where there really isn't enough time to show you anything, and it's rushed through so fast you get nothing from it. IT's really just a platform for the hosts to try to be funny and talk over the person giving instruction. It's so old. Please stop doing that.
