The Chew will be back with all-new shows the week of June 4 running through the end of the season in September.


ABC’s Good Morning America will soon expand to three hours each weekday instead of just two. The new third hour will air separately from the 7:00-9:00 a.m. EDT show at 1 p.m. EDT, noon CDT/PDT. The additional hour is set to replace ABC’s daytime food-centric show, The Chew, which has been canceled after seven seasons, 1454 episodes, multiple Emmy nominations, and two Emmy Awards. The Chew will halt production at the end of this season. The show will air as planned until September with new episodes airing in June.

“Over the past six years Good Morning America has solidified its place as America’s No. 1 morning show,” said Ben Sherwood, co-chairman, Disney Media Networks, and president, Disney|ABC Television. “We believe there is great opportunity for viewers and advertisers in expanding to a third hour.”



“While this is the right decision for our business, it is also bittersweet,” Sherwood continued. “For seven years The Chew has delighted audiences by delivering innovative food segments in an entertaining atmosphere. We applaud and thank Gordon Elliott, Aimee Householder, Michael Symon, Carla Hall, Clinton Kelly and the entire cast and crew for their great work and amazing run. And we wish them the very best.”

When Gordon Elliot made staff aware of the cancellation, he saluted ABC’s venture into the genre seven years ago saying “before The Chew, no one had attempted a talk/food hybrid. Our hosts Clinton, Carla, and Michael and the staff created television history executing the show as well as they did for all these years. I know I speak for all of the people who work on the show when I say it was the best television we have ever had the privilege to produce.”

“Good Morning America keeps finding new ways to inform and delight our audience. We recently expanded GMA through our social channels and a newly launched website. Now we will build a whole new hour of compelling content that is true to GMA’s spirit,” said James Goldston, president of ABC News.

Further details including the title and anchors will be announced at a later date.
