Of all the shows I can't wait to actively avoid this fall, there is one that stands out head and Joker-like smile above the rest: The Rachael Ray Show. This commercial outlines precisely why:
This commercial can easily be substituted for the first horseman of the Apocalypse. First dates, the highlighting of products and gadgets (like wicker trays), where to hide stuff when people come over (She's soooo down to Earth, that Rachael!), sexy singles over 60, and "practical fashion" (as indicated by a sassy zebra print wrap dress)––It's like she's listing the reasons not to watch the show. Doesn't Oprah, or The Today Show, or The View cover most of this stuff, and without involving Rachael Ray, her raspy giggles, and her constant Rachaelisms? By the way, she's not kidding about the celebrity fridge thing, and, as much as it pains me to admit it, I have to agree with Rachael here. Finding out that the woman from Law & Order:SVU has pre-chopped and pre-washed broccoli in her crisper is the really interesting stuff.
