Rachael Ray's New Show Debuting September 25

According to TV.com, Rachael Ray's new show on The Cooking Channel will debut on Saturday, September 25 at 3pm ET, The channel is already airing reruns of Tasty Travels, but Rach will also have a brand new show called Week in a Day. The Cooking Channel has a bio up for Rach, but no details about the show. I will keep my eye out for that!

In the meantime, we can look at what TV.com learned:
Week in a Day will be her first show to focus exclusively on food in nine years, and looks to highlight her cooking concept for busy families. Learn how to make all the meals for the week with one day of cooking; saving you time and energy.

Sounds like a good one to me! Unfortunately, I don't get The Cooking Channel because I have DirecTV. Booooooooo! At least I can still check out the show's website when it launches....  Thanks to my super smart readers, I now know that I actually do get the Cooking Channel.  Who knew?!  I'll definitely be tuning in, since I now only shop once a week (a two year old and a pregnancy will do that to you).  I can't wait.

  1. I have DirecTV and I get the Cooking Channel. Channel 232. Maybe you have a different package than I do or it's a regional thing.

  5. No offense Rachel---I have been doing this for 15 plus years. As a working mom, 3 kids, husband and long daily work schedule, this is something I have always tried to do. Come talk to the mom's in the Midwest. This concept is nothing new to us!

  6. Hey Anony,

    First, this website isn't run by Rachael Ray, it's run by me! Second, I don't think it a concept that is unique to the Midwest - I've been doing it in California for quite some time! Third, I don't think Rachael is saying it's a new concept, she's just trying to share it with more people. I used to shop every 2-3 days because it was just easier for me, since I didn't know what our schedule would be. Now that we have a schedule down, I do find shopping for a week at a time is easier.

    I am very excited about this show and will love to see Rach's spin on it.

  7. I do not get the Cooking Channel. It's offered, but I watch so little tv that it's not worth the extra $30/month just to get this show. I'm a huge Rachael fan, so I'm very disappointed! If you spot that she comes out with a cookbook to accompany her Week In A Day show, I'd really like to hear about it!

    Great website, by the way! I will be back to visit this one (I found you searching for RR's new show, looking for a companion cookbook to Week..)

  8. Not only is this not a new concept. Rachel Ray is totally ripping off an idea that was started online - www.economybites.com by two fresh-out-of-college kids. Their "Cook on Sunday, Eat til Thursday" idea was featured on CNN and is on the Huffington Post. A pity.

  9. I'd bet dollars to donuts that there was someone before them, too. Also, I've never heard Rach claim that it was a new idea - it's just a new show. Seriously, did any one think this was a new idea? A similar Once a Month cooking thing has been around forever.

  10. I watched the show last night. It is a great idea and i am so glad she has a new show. She does seem a little less... what's the word? Peppy? I wonder if the producers told her to tone it down.... too bad!

  11. I think it's just a different style for a different show. I keep getting distracted by the background music!

  12. DH and I actually tried her Week of Comfort (Baked Ziti with Spinach and Veal
    Knocks and Beans Supreme, On Top of Ole Smoky, All Covered with Cheese: Spaghetti and Meatballs, The Ultimate Red Clam Chowder, Vegetable and Dumpling Soup) Very good! It took us about 3 hours, and we had a whole week of stuff ready to heat up and add the finishing touches. After the holidays, we're doing One Pot Wonders.

  13. That is impressive! I think 3 hours is reasonable for that many meals.
