After being teased by Michael Symon’s gushing updates about The Chew, like today’s “Practicing the live shows for The Chew last week really made me realize that there has never been a show quite like it on tv,” Grub gathered a few more updates on the daytime foodie talk show airing September 26. SuperChef says that ABC has added two new personalities to the Batali-Symon-Hall posse: Danny Boome from Rescue Chef and Evette Rios, a Latina craft-and-design expert, will join the party. Also, Variety says John D’Inecco, formerly of Good Morning America, has signed on to be the show’s director. [SuperChef, Variety]
