ABC says goodbye to 'The Chew,' adds 3rd hour of 'Good Morning America'

Posted Wednesday, May 23, 2018 by RODNEY HO/rho@ajc.com on his AJC Radio & TV Talk blog

ABC's appetite for afternoon talk show "The Chew" is over after seven years.

Instead, a third hour of "Good Morning America" will air at 1 p.m. starting this fall. (Locally, it's on Channel 2 WSB-TV).

"The Chew," currently hosted by Carla Hall, Clinton Kelly and Michael Symon, replaced "All My Children" in 2011. Former co-host chef Mario Batali was fired late last year after several women alleged he sexual harassed them at his New York restaurants. Batali is now under criminal investigation by the New York Police Department.

The chat/food show's ratings have fallen sharply this season to its lowest levels since its debut.

New episodes of "The Chew" will continue to air through the summer.

Details on who will host this third hour of "GMA" will be released later.
