"I'm Not Good With the Calm"

Well, despite my own hesitations, and even Madeline of Everything Rachael Ray's tepid review of Rachael Ray's inaugural talkshow episode, King World just announced that Rachael had the "highest-rated syndicated debut since Dr. Phil in 2002"

Woo Woo! That ought to be some good news for team Rachael after these first-round of reviews. I hope it's not just because the competition wasn't that strong: "She beat the premiere episode rating of "Megan Mullally" by 133%; "Dr. Keith Ablow" by 211%; and "Greg Behrendt" by 250%."

"I'm not good with the calm."

Not surprised by that quote, are you? That comes from an upcoming 20/20 interview with Rachael, running this Friday night. You can get more information on it over at ABC News.

Aren't you proud of me for being so honest? I know that at least one producer on her show reads my blog from time to time, so I had to tell the truth.

But I really will watch it every day! I still loved it, just thought it could use some changes....

I am proud, Madeline! As I stated a long time ago, I really hope that Rachael's show does well. I just watched today's episode with Oprah, hoping she'd have toned it down a bit, and she did... a little. From time to time.

She still interrupted Oprah a few times and I thought the shoe segment was not all that enlightening (I'm also a guy, so that could be why). Still, she has a lot of smart people working for her, I'm sure. They'll straighten things out.

i too just watched the oprah episode, and Rachael didn't tone it down enough for me. i agree she kept interrupting oprah, and couldn't help but think that even oprah was annoyed with RR. maybe i just read too much into it, but that was the impression i got. my boyfriend walked into the room during the shoe segment and said 'people are asking HER for style advice?' lol. another thing that really bothers me is when those kids come out to serve the food and they have to wear her dumb yum-o shirts. i really used to like RR and love 30 min meals before she got too hyper, but i don't think i will watch much more of this new daytime talk show. i want to relax when i watch TV and i have found i get a bit anxious with all the loudness!
