Though I like a few of the people individually, the show lacks any natural chemistry, imo. Maybe things will even out, but I just don't know.

I found it very chaotic. It's like a bunch of people got together to have fun, and laugh, but that isn't really a show.

Seemed like typical daytime television to me. I mean, you knew eventually this would happen, sort of the food version of Dr. Oz, Oprah, or the myriad of other daytime shows.

Why not? It's like any other daytime show. It's there for product placement and for celebs to pimp their latest movie/show/book/whatever.
I live to eat. I shall die with an entire cheesecake in my tummy, surrounded by empty beer bottles and soda cans, with a slice of cold pizza still in my hand. Oh death, where is thy sting?

^ Yep.
It was on in a waiting room as I was at. I like some of the individuals, but didn't quite get the show. The potential was there anyway.

Actually, I thought it had improved. Still chaotic, but, getting there.....

It may be chaotic, and I find Michael Symon scary with the shaved head, but it still beats the hell out of either The Talk or The View, and Daphne Oz is much more interesting than Dr. Oz. She had her mother on the show a couple of weeks ago, and she is even hotter than Daphne! You should have watched it Hallowe'en week. It was hilarious, and Michael Symon isn't scary when he trying to be.

They're trying too hard to
script it for a tv audience
and unscript it for the studio
who all look bored stiff.
Doesn't look promising...

Very bad show with a few good recipes scattered around. I agree, we don't need another food show and certainly not this one.
