The top management of the network, ABC, believes that the new approach will be a ‘great opportunity’ for viewers and advertisers.


It seems to be the norm in television for shows to be constantly created, aired and canceled. And while networks bring out something new to replace a canceled show, fans of the former program are left disappointed.

Fans of the ABC show, The Chew, are in for a similar disappointment since the network has decided to cancel any further seasons of the series.

According to Disney ABC Press, the future of the 7-year-old show hosted by Carla Hall, Clinton Kelly, and Michael Symon, was shelved since ABC’s morning show Good Morning America will be expanding to become a three-hour-program


The two-time Emmy-award-winning show will air its final set of new episodes from June to September this year. After September, Good Morning America will broadcast its third hour at 1:00 pm EDT.

Ben Sherwood, the co-chairman of Disney Media Networks and the president of Disney|ABC Television shared that Good Morning America had secured the position of the country’s number 1 morning show.


He added that increasing the duration of the show by an hour would provide a great opportunity to the viewers waiting at home and the advertisers who wish to capitalize on their on-air time.

Sherwood emphasized that it was the right decision to make for the network’s future. However, he also admitted that it was tough to let go The Chew, after the huge success that it had achieved.

Speaking of The Chew, Sherwood proudly stated that it was based on the unique premise of presenting creative ideas in food in a refreshingly entertaining setting.



He also expressed his gratitude towards Gordon Elliott and Aimee Householder, apart from the current hosts of the show.

As the producer of The Chew, Elliott revealed commended the network for embracing the concept of amalgamating food and talk and creating a show that was the first of its kind.

Meanwhile, viewers of Good Morning America an look forward to another hour of news, trends in pop culture, candid interviews, and live events.
