Rachael Ray's talk show debuted yesterday and it had the highest rated syndicated debut since Dr. Phil rode Oprah's coattails to glory back in 2002.
I haven't actually seen the show yet (I deemed season 3 of Deadwood and season 4 of The Wire to be higher priority last night), but early reviews indicate that the show is a good substitute for coffee or speed:
"Rachael Ray Show" potentially annoying
Who needs coffee when you've got Rachael Ray?
'Rachael' is a ray of hope....
I'll catch up this week and be sure to post my thoughts.
Bonus: TV Squad picked out five bizarre quotes from Rachael's recent appearance on Larry King.
