    Rachael Ray is a definite keeper. The interesting guests on a cooking show is great. The food is easy to do and demonstrated very well. Recipes are available on lines. Great stuff for afternoon TV.

    I am not a big fan of the show-she cooks too much Italian-and as far as make overs when is she getting one-too long hair-hides face-not a fan of red-wears thick heavy clothes to hide figure-and whats up with all the BOOTS! Other than this Rachael is a delightful person.

      I’m upset as well, we pay for all these cable channels and they keep switching the shows we enjoy around. What’s up with that.

    I love her show, and am happy for her. I honed my skills as a cook watching her 30 minute shows and am forever grateful. That concept was brilliant! If only there were a vegetarian/whole foods version for weirdos like me ๐Ÿ˜‰

    We love Rachael here on the west coast but our CBS station has a new producer who is changing all the programming…moved her from 9:00 am to 2:00 pm and put on game shows in the morning. We want to learn to cook in the morning NOT in the afternoon…in the afternoon we want to go to the show to shop for the items to cook for dinner that she has taught us in the morning. I’ve complained numerous times to this idiot and would you believe (it shows what an idiot he is) he actually emails me back and argues with me. What ever happened to professionalism???? This guy is a jerk and he is making me and all my friends look at other network’s because he is ******** up CBS so much. Now I’ve found out that come the new season he has replaced Rachael Ray with the new Queen Latifah talk show; as if we didn’t already have enough talk shows on!! Help us out please; the programming will NOT listen us the viewers it’s what they want NOT what we want!!!!!

    I am so glad they kept the Rachael Ray show going. I was disappointed when I lost it after the morning shows. But, soon picked it up on other channels.

    I wish racherl would cook dishes with fish ….I do not eat beef or pork and I have seen to many dishes with red meat. I eat a little lamb and a little chiquen, but I adore fish. Can you tell Rachel to help me?
    Good fortune on the next two seasons Rachel!

    so i went on rachel’s web site and it looks like she is moving to a new studio and the new season starts monday so perhaps she is just not on this week because of that??? Lets hope!
