The Soaps Are Out, The Chew Is In

ABC announced today that it will be cancelling two daytime soaps to make way for two new shows called The Chew and The Revolution.
 The Chew will be produced by Gordon Elliot (Paula Deen’s Home Cooking) and is a one-hour series that enables viewers to “get the dish” on anything and everything related to the world of food and beyond.  Hosts will include Mario Batali (Iron Chef America); entertaining expert Clinton Kelly (What Not to Wear); Carla Hall (Top Chef); Michael Symon (Iron Chef America), and nutrition expert Daphne Oz.
 The Revolution is from Executive Producer JD Roth and 3 Ball Productions (The Biggest Loser) and will be a daily show about health and lifestyle transformations. The show is hosted by a team of experts and rotating guest contributors and will feature a “unique concept,” ABC says: “Each week one woman’s five-month weight loss journey will unfold in just five days, with daily results and a final transformational reveal on Friday.
 Hooray!  More information will be out there for us to consume!  I must say I'm extremely excited about The Chew, and not just because Clinton Kelly will be a host.  I'll be on the lookout for the premiere and I will be adjusting my DVR accordingly!
