Has anyone been watching "The Chew"

I am not sure how I feel about the show yet, I have watched 3 Episodes And so far it is Just ok. I do have high regard for Mario Batali, and Michael Symon. I think Michael Symon is a very sexy man. I know beaing a man I should not be saying that, but it is what it is.

the show on 2-Nov-2011 was the best with the Pat and Gina Neely, they had to bleep Gina Neely a few times.

I really like Mario Batali, but I am very disappointed in the show. It is not entertaining, there doesn't seem to be chemistry between the regulars and they don't cook enough. The only show worth watching more than 2 minutes was the one with the Neeleys. I hope things improve.

There is so much "lost" energy among the hosts---too much frenzied talking like they are afraid of any downtime. Same reason I don't like the Dr. Oz show.

Thanks for the warning, I can't even walk through a room with the Neeley's on tv without cringing. They are so blatantly ethnically falsely overdone it is ridiculous. I find it insulting. Haven't seen the Chew but doesn't sound like I am missing much.

I have been watching The Chew also. Can't decide if I like it. I like Mario as he doesn't seem to be quite as aloof as he has been on his previous cooking shows. I like Michael and feel it is truly genuine. I really don't think the show will succeed. My other choice would be the news at noon and after reading the paper and watching GMA, I've pretty much have had it with anymore news for the day so choose to watch this show, but I don't go back and forth, some days not watching The Chew at all. I guess I was hoping for a little more from these guys.

FYI - I meant to say, "do" go back and forth.

I do love Mario Batalie and Michael Symon. I even like Clinton Kelly. But somehow all together the sum is less than the parts. It is a shame because there is a lot of talent there.
