Yesterday TMZ accosted chef Mario Batali — the new co-host of ABC's daytime talk show The Chew — and asked about the soap operas going off the air to make room for his new show. Batali said, "It wasn't like I voted them out."
When asked if The Chew was going to better, Batali replied, "It's not gonna be better, it's an interesting little format, it'll be fun to play and do... I certainly don't want anyone out of a job. I love everyone that works in the industry."
