TV Media Insights reports that the insipid replacement series for the renowned ‘One Life to Live’ lost 25 percent of ‘The Chew’s’ lead-in audience in it’s first week, Tuesday and Wednesday, and is down 35 percent from where cancelled number 2 soap ‘One Life to Live’ was in the same timeslot a year ago.

It makes on wonder who is making these decisions and who will be the next to go after Brian Frons was shown the door?
