What’s Your Taste? Rachael Ray Vs. The Chew


  
What’s your taste of cooking TV talk show? Do you prefer only one host to a panel of cohosts? Let’s discuss Rachael Ray Vs. The Chew.

The Rachael Ray Show has filmed 1,500 episodes since 2007. The Chew Show has filmed 852 episodes since 2011. These shows compete for the same coveted demographics.

I watch both shows sometimes, especially when I want to surprise a special lady with dinner and a movie. I guess I’m used to Rachael Ray. She seems to be the heir-apparent to Martha Stewart.

It’s all about personality. I like Rachael’s bubbliness and sweetness. And Mario Batali is fun.


However, it is Carla Hall who I would like most to cook my meal. She was born and raised in the American South, so you know what that means. Look at the joy she’s serving. Are your taste buds watering now?

I like the others as well. 29 year-old Daphne Oz helps attract the younger crowd.

You see television can serve as a launching pad for a celebrity’s brand. For example, Rachael Ray has her very own magazine called Everyday with Rachael Ray. Plus, the upbeat chef has a reality TV show on the Food Network- Rachael Vs. Guy: Celebrity Cook-off.
                                                             
I doubt that the 47 year-old will be retiring any time soon because she works more jobs than Ryan Seacrest. I prefer the Rachael Ray Show because of the celeb’s branding. The Chew is on the right track, but the show has a long way before catching up with Ray.

Although I prefer a panel because of the variety of perspectives and opinions, Rachael is a gift. She’s the closest thing to Julia Child. Don’t you love Rachael Ray’s recipes?

It is a matter of preferences. Both talk shows are entertaining. But, Rachael Ray is better.
