Default Did you Watch.....

Rachel Ray this week at all? While I enjoy her on the Food Network, occaisionally, I don't think I can watch any more of her new shows. When she first comes out she shouts, and she talks so fast, and loud, and is so perky, she puts Katie Couric to shame.

I think Oprah needs to sit her down and give her a stern talking to

I like her Food Network shows, but her talk show is a disaster - like Trip said, she needs to slow down and calm down! Sometimes less is more. But her 30 minute meals are amazing!

I, too, was disappointed in her talk show. I DVR'd all of last week and watched them back to back yesterday. By the last one, I was adjusting to her "style" a little, but I am not sure this show will make it.

I like Rachel a lot and was looking forward to her new talk show. HOWEVER, she is just tooooooo manic.....like a gnat on speed! I found her getting on my nerves in the first 5 minutes. Thank heavens for the fast forward (I taped them). Hope she calms down a bit.

I only get to see about five to ten minutes a day - I put it on while I'm making my bed and getting ready to go to work. I'm just not sure about it yet. I might dvr it this week and sit down and watch a whole episode.
For a few minutes her upbeat tempo is ok - I'm not sure about a whole hour of it - is the show a whole hour?

40 dollars a day is my favorite. I always look forward to it coming on.

I would just as soon gargle with battery acid than watch.

Haven't watched but the ad for it was enough to turn me off! I'm not into the cooking shows either. Anything kitchen related would not be high on my list actually.
