Rachael Ray, also known as The Rachael Ray Show, is a how-to series starring Rachael Ray that debuted in syndication in the United States and Canada on September 18, 2006. It is filmed at EUE/Screen Gems' facility in New York City. The show's 7th season premiered on September 17, 2012, and became the last Harpo show in syndication to switch to HD with a revamped studio.

Show format

The concept behind this program focuses on more than just Ray's culinary skills, offering many other celebrity interviews, provocative discussions, musical performances and groundbreaking features along the lines of The Oprah Winfrey Show. According to Ray, "People know me for my love of food, but I have so much more I want to share." The set has the audience seated on a large turntable that rotates so that the audience can always see the "action" on the circular stage that surrounds them. At the end of each show, with the exception of a few more guests after Ray's cooking segments, Ray's tagline is, "We'll see you when we see you."

On March 9, 2007, Entertainment Tonight revealed that the show's theme music was written and recorded by Rachael's husband, John Cusimano. The original theme song to the show was performed by R&B, Soul and Jazz group The Neville Brothers. Their song has the same rhythm as their classic hit "Yellow Moon", but with different lyrics. Aaron Neville sings the song. Starting with the fifth season the original theme was retired.With the start of the seventh season the show will be shot in a new studio.
