Daytime talk show The Chew, which may or may not rhyme with The View on purpose, premieres Monday, and we can't wait. Mostly because we're just so curious about what this show will really look like.

It promises to be a groundbreaking and innovative take on exploring life through food, style and entertaining. Hmm. They definitely have the food part down with hosts Mario Batali, Michael Symon, Top Chef Carla Hall and Daphne Oz, author of bestselling book The Dorm Room Diet. That means Clinton Kelly of What Not To Wear may have to handle the latter two on his own.

Squid Ink was offered an exclusive clip of the show:

Which, yes, turned out to simply be a short clip of Michael Symon making a vinaigrette. But a little more educational than your typical Food Network demo, yes? He seems to be channeling Alton Brown a bit, thankfully, since we do miss him so.

We're looking forward to seeing what this crew really talks about when they all sit down at the table. Here's hoping they can fill that Oprah void too.

The Chew will air weekdays beginning Monday, September 26th at 1 p.m. on ABC.
