LOS ANGELES, Sept. 24 (UPI) -- The new U.S. food-themed chat show "The Chew" is to begin airing next week as part of ABC's daytime lineup, the network said.
Presided over by "Iron Chef America" stars Mario Batali and Michael Symon, "Top Chef" alum Carla Hall, entertaining expert Clinton Kelly, and health and wellness enthusiast Daphne Oz, the show is to premiere Monday.
The ABC soap opera "All My Children" was canceled after 41 years to make room for it. The last episode of the drama series aired on ABC Friday.
"From dishing about the latest in food news, to sharing tips for easy entertaining, to making meals on a budget, 'The Chew' invites viewers into their kitchen weekday afternoons to celebrate and explore life through food," ABC said in a synopsis.
