“The Chew” Canceled, “Good Morning America” Expanded to 3 Hours
It’s a wrap for The Chew. ABC announced the end of the daytime cooking show after seven seasons. The news comes after co-host Mario Batali was fired following allegations of sexual harassment and assault. Another co-host, Daphne Oz, also left the show last year for unrelated reasons. Neither hosts were replaced.
The series’ cancellation ends a two-time Emmy-winning, 1454 episode-run. The Chew will continue to run until September.
Meanwhile, Good Morning America has been expanded to three hours, ABC announced Wednesday. While details about the additional hour, including who will host the segment, have yet to be revealed, the new slot is set to air at 1 p.m. ET. Good Morning America currently features primary anchors Robin Roberts, George Stephanopoulos, Lara Spencer and Michael Strahan.
