Daphne Oz and Our Impression of ABC's The Chew

Daphne Oz
If you haven't heard of Daphne Oz, we're pretty sure she'll be a household name in a month or so. She's the 25-year-old author of The Dorm Room Diet and daughter of the famous Dr. Oz.

And, she's a host on ABC's newest View spin-off, The Chew, which incorporates all the bombastic lameness of The View and can be seen everyday at 1 p.m., to the fury of All My Children fans, now that it's replaced the archaic soap.

We fear The Chew is a tad too sweet to stomach, and the hosts (Mario Batali, Clinton Kelly, Carla Hall, Michael Symon, and Daphne Oz) are caricatures rather than personalities.

While Daphne Oz is a published writer, we aren't entirely convinced she is an authority on healthy eating, despite her famous father's influence. But she does come off like a downright decent character, so we're giving her a shot.

We wanted to like it. We really did.
As far as the show goes, it's brimming with honky-dory appeal for the stay-at-home (m)asses. There isn't a moment where they won't cut to a smiling host or zoom in on a shot of them laughing. It reeks of cheesiness, and we're betting it'll have a long run.

It's just a shame a food god like Batali is going along for the sordid ride.

Daphne Oz makes me sick.  What does she know about cooking? I have never seen her cook a thing.  She chops vegetables from time to time.  Anyone can do that.  I don't think it is right that she makes the money she makes but has nothing to contribute to the show.  Even her comments are terrible.  Take her off and then it may, I said may, be bearable.

Plain and simple.  Mean people suck!   If you don't like the show, that's fine but to call people you don't even know mean names is just a clue as to what kind of character you have....none!

Daphne Oz (I hate to even type the name) is almost as annoying as Carla Hall, and the bald guy.  Why is she even on the show? Just because her father was made by Oprah, this Oz is NOT a vegetarian, and the others on the show must be brain dead to suggest she is.  Get rid of her!

Millionaire leads into this show in my area - only reason I happened on 2 it.  Recommend they put an apple in Daphne's mouth n roast her 4 Easter like the PIG she is! Reportedly VEGAN which could b true, as that is what they fatten hogs w/ b4 slaughter.  If they r lacking 4 fuel 2 roast her, they can put that guy on the far left (other end from Batali) below her becuz there r inferno-like flames jumping off that guy!  Poster child 4 bone-smugglers!  If u r an avid watcher, I suspect ur family tree looks like a telephone pole!

Just sayin'

All of you bitching are just pissed that your shitty soaps finally got pulled. I actually enjoy the show. I'm a stay at home dad at the moment (not because I'm lazy just recovering from a couple rotator cuff surgeries.) and I've learned a lot of cooking recipes and tricks from the show. It's not perfect but it's a hell of a lot better than what it replaced. Carla does need to calm down tho.

They do click together. The show is good. And why do they have to talk about healthyfood just for you no life people? Its people like you that try to control others, if someone wanna eat unhealthy then that's there life not yours. Learn to mind yours and be quiet. They are getting paid which half of y'all responding on here is not

She's a complete moron. That idiot can't even put a lid on a blender without help. And her hair is always hanging in the food. I wouldn't hire her at Dairy Queen let alone a TV show. But since her dad the world's biggest pharma shill BOUGHT her the job, I guess the other hosts that actually have earned the spots have to suffer her 76 IQ.

I have tried to like the Chew as some of the recipes are good. However, Mario and Michael are the only two members of the cast I like. Carla drives me crazy with her giggling and jumping all over the place. As for Daphne, she is only there for the cute factor. She didn't write that book any more than I did. I guarantee daddy dearest was the ghost writer and gave it to her to get her name out there. I have yet to come up with a reason for Clinton to be there.

Why is she eating meat when she claims to be a vegan or vegetarian or whatever?  She's always tearing that meat up like she's starving LOL ! In fact, they all do that!

Love Mario Batali, not quite sure how he got lured on to this show.  Love Dr. OZ too but not so impressed by his daughter.  Carla Hall..... Am i the only one who thought she was a man ?I don't see anything saying she was a man first but I could have sworn I saw an Adams apple.   As for the show.... Awkward comes to mind.  Not Horrific, just Awkward.

Gosh people r so mean, the show is really cute. They are all great. It just stinks because they had to fill a spot of a soap that was on for a long time. Daphne you are great. Who cares how she got famous she has talent and she deserves it. Jealous meanies!

I don't know how a half greek could stomach a Turk Muslim bitch like Daffy Oz - she has no claim to fame other than being her father's daughter and a Muslim. Gross!

Daphne oz is a phony!!! First off do you notice how she is always hiding from her fat waist down on the show,have you noticed how the camera only gets her body in half shots & how she always hides behind counters & props.She was way fatter before,as a matter of fact she was overweight by 50 pounds!!!!!!!! Well when you have a nutjob as a father,i guess insecurity comes with the territory,she chows down like a pig in heat for a so called 'vegie",what a phony  you are.  keep eating girl!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

How condescending you are! Not all the people who stay at home are @sses, you know. Some of us are as productive members of society as...oh, I don't know...YOU are. Just because we stay at home doesn't make us an @ss. There must be many more good points to the show, or why would your food god (your words) Batali still be there? Maybe you should ask him why he's there. Maybe it's just plain FUN, as well as informative.

I can't believe all the negative comments. Where are the positive ones and don't tell me there weren't any? I find The Chew very entertaining, yes entertaining. Lots of laughs, good recipes, hints and guests, etc. The show is a little of each and brings a nice change to the boring daily talk shows and over and over same news broadcasted. Always depressing things that make it "news". Now talk about a boring, rediculous show watch "The Revolution". Nows that is a show that can go off the air ASAP.Bear in mind that everyone has a right to their own opinions but Daphne Oz, being a Harvard graduate, is more knowledgeable than probably most of you who don't like her. Give her a break, her Dad's name should not even be mentioned because she earned her right to be on the show. Just think the early pilots had her doing the show herself and it didn't do well so then they brought in the others. Be thankful.

I can't stand looking at Daphne Oz's face. I'm not sure why it bothers me so much...

I hate this show.  I usually watch the local 12 noon news so I switch channels a few minutes before the news and there it is.  It's just stupid nonsense.  What is with all the characters the y dress up as?  There's no organization .  Is it a cooking show?  A fashion show?  A wannabe comedy show?   Michael Symon simply annoying , he thinks he is funny and that laugh.  Carla Hall and her goofy faces.  Mario with his crocs and shorts?  Sheesh.  Clinton is okay but he says stupid stuff too.  Very cheesy.  And Oz is no expert and she isn't that slim from the waist down.  Big butt and wide hips.  Besides that the show stinks

If the annoying Carla Hall says "I want to hug you" one more time i'm going to take an axe to my television set. And no Mario, I don't want to be Italian. This is the cheesiest, dorkiest, and most useless show EVER. I can't think of anything that could make it more irritating, gets under my skin. I hope it fails, abc deserve that for doing away with soaps. please dont insult stay at home moms, this is junk.

I can no longer watch Daphne Oz...watching her lips move makes me dizzy...it's like putting a movie in Fast Forward.  Is there an OFF button for her?  She talks so damned fast I can't understand a word she says.  I actually like or should say liked this show, before they started with the idiotic skits and stupid games.  The skits are anything but funny...the humor comes from watching them interact with each other...no need to introduce contrived and fake humor.  I'm liking it less and less, but I do love all the hosts, with the exception of Daphne.  Gawd, I can't take her for another minute.

I love this show. I am a stay at home mom and watch it almost daily. I also love to cook, and they have some great recipes and ideas. I say if you don't like it, then don't watch it. It's not very nice to be mean. At least they are happy. Would you want to watch a show where everyone is grumpy?

I don't even LIKE soap operas, much less All My Children, but dear GOD this show is garbage.  I swear to god they all act like relatives coming over for Christmas trying to be nice and smiley, even though they don't like you very much and think you're stupid.  That's how they relate to the audience. 

And I gotta add that Carla Hall has got to be the most annoying person I've ever seen on my television screen since Pauly Shore's short lived MTV career ended.

I'm a NON fan, ABC, bring back Susan Lucci for the love of GOD.

I don't enjoy it at all.  Mario needs to go back to Iron Chef (all cook, no talk).  Daphne Oz says on almost every show I have seen that she doesn't eat meat, but on each of these shows I have seen, she eats meat.  I don't get it.

like I'm going to take advice from that twit daphne because of her daddy. She didn't even know what a brat was, and she is on a cooking show????

Its bad, really!! The forced, constant humor is just too much...embarrassing! Michael Symon and Mario Baltali are great chefs and enjoyable to watch on a cooking show, but they have lowered themselves...too bad!! This show needs to go, NOW!!

I dvr'd it the first week and a half. I'm done. Daphne Oz is only on the show because her father is famous. That Clinton guy isn't worth watching. He's just filler. I'd rather see Mario Batali and Carla Hall on a show without the other three. I think it ends up being about 30 minutes of content and another 30 of commercial breaks.

Oh I have tried to watch because I love Mario and Carla but I just can't take it anymore.  TOO CUTSY.  Who is Daphne Oz (besides Dr Oz's daughter?

Bye, bye

Why does she chew with her front teeth? And batting her eyes all the while! I have noticed that most "actors" in commercials chew with their front teeth while advertising food. Kind of odd, don't you think?

Thank you so much ! These people who are posting negative comments are obviously people who don't enjoy cooking and trying new things so why would you like the show?

@Bonju Patten Even if you don't like Daphne Oz that may be fine but you shouldn't dislike her for being a Muslim so therefore as a Muslim I'm offended how you insulted my religion.

"black bitch"? Why the racist comment???! BIGOT much?! That sh*t needs to be flagged. It's quite INAPPROPIATE. You can talk about people WITHOUT the dam racism! Or maybe YOU cant!

I wonder if Daphne Oz has a thing for chef Simon. She always looks for a reason to get close to him. If you haven't noticed,please do.

The show has grown on me.  I didnt like it the first week on air.  But have changed my thoughts since then.

Actually, she says she grew up vegetarian because her mom was vegetarian.  But now she eats meat occasionally.

Amen!
Amen!

isn't a 'brat' a kid who gets a TV show because she has a famous last name?  Like Kardashian?  or Oz?

@Jj10095 It should be pulled. Racist comments are NOT acceptable,
