As you well know from the previous blog post Daytime TV Obsessions Working from Home, I’m a regular viewer of The Chew. Well…it looks like I’m going to have to find something else to have on in the background while working since this Friday (tomorrow) is the very last day The Chew will be on air.
I can’t lie…it’s not my favorite show in the world, but I did enjoy it and part of me feels really badly for the hosts – and their entire cast and crew totaling 150 people. How do I know how many people work on the show? Carla Hall has repeatedly mentioned this week and last week how many people will be out of a job.
While the hosts – Carla Hall, Clinton Kelly and Michael Symon – have tried their hardest to make these last few days as upbeat and fun as possible, but it seems they all have more of an edge to them in the form of quips being said on air about being cancelled / out of a job.
Today they recorded the show for today (Thursday) as well as their Grand Finale taking place tomorrow (Friday). I know I’ll definitely watch to see what happens, what else is said and how many tears are shed.
Take a look at how the hosts reacted when finding out they were being cancelled. (via Deadline)
