CBS Renews ‘The Talk’ For 2011-2012 Season

LOS ANGELES (CBS) — CBS is renewing daytime talk show “The Talk” for the 2011-2012 season.

The show, which premiered Oct. 18 and is hosted by five mothers in the entertainment industry, has averaged 2.21 million viewers, according to figures compiled by The Nielsen Co. and supplied by CBS.

“After only a few months on the air, ‘The Talk’ has delivered creative and ratings growth and established a strong profile in daytime,” CBS Entertainment President Nina Tassler said.

“The co-hosts have clicked together; the topics have connected with the audience and the show has added a new dimension to our top-rated daytime lineup.”

Sara Gilbert, best known for her role as Darlene Conner on the 1988-1997 ABC comedy “Roseanne,” developed the show and is one of its hosts and executive producers.

The other hosts are actresses Holly Robinson Peete and Leah Remini; “Big Brother” host Julie Chen; and entertainment manager turned television personality Sharon Osbourne.

    i do not watch the talk any more because i do not like holly!! i think she is prejudice i am sick of hearing her say “oh it’s a black thing right” she is not funny what so ever, and her lushing over male guests is sickening. it seems she tries to be like the other hosts as far as sense of humor get a gig of your own and not “be like” the others as for the other four hosts i think you did an incredibly perfect pick. when holly’s gone i will watch again

    We want Leah back!!!!! Watched this week and Molly Shannon as well as the other new host does not connect well!! Boring!!!! Not as much laughter or a close connection!

    I will no longer watch The Talk because you fired Leigh and Holly. I will watch it again when you bring them back. I hope others will do the same.
