CBS premiers a View like talk show to it’s daytime lineup this week. The Talk aims to look at current events through the eyes of mothers, an interesting “twist” to the daytime talk show landscape, if you will. It’s not surprise that Julie Chen, host of Big Brother and wife of CBS President Les Moonves, co-hosts after giving birth to the couples first child last year. As the show premiers this week, CBS has announced that the likes of everyone from new American Idol judge Jennifer Lopez to Grey’s Anatomy star Chandra Wilson will make a visit. Other guests for premiere week include model Christine Brinkley, Melissa Rycroft (The Bachelor), Jamie Lee Curtis, and Rick Fox & Cheryl Burke (Dancing with the Stars). Kinda surprising CBS isn’t using premiere week to showcase stars from the network’s own TV hits. Maybe that comes later. Visit The Talk‘s official website HERE.
The Talk premiers Monday October 18 (check local listings), as replacement of long running soap As the World Turns. Joining Julie Chen as co-hosts will be Sara Gilbert (Roseanne and recurring role on CBS’s The Big Bang Theory), Sharon Osbourne (America’s Got Talent), Holly Robinson Peete (21 Jump Street & Celebrity Apprentice), Leah Remini (King of Queens), and Marissa Jaret Winokur (Broadway’s Hairspray). Excited about this show? Is this panel of co-hosts potentially a better mix than The View? Will you be watching? Let us know below and join our FORUMS to comment!
