Daytime TV: The Chew

ABC's Food-Talk Show Celebrates 500 Episodes

The Chew's arrival in 2011 stung, especially for fans of daytime soap All My Children that ABC replaced after 41 years with this experiment, a food-themed talk show. Yet, The Chew for a while quietly tightened up its format where five, fun co-hosts cook, eat, talk, laugh, eat. And, eat.

Now, in its third season, The Chew (ABC, 1pm) is churning out its best-ever ratings. On average, about 2.7 million people tune in to watch the show, up 15% from last year.

Today, co-hosts Mario Batali, Carla Hall, Michael Symon, Clinton Kelly and Daphne Oz are celebrating the show's 500th episode.
