    Leah is the funniest and honest person on the show. How can you let her go. I don’t think i’ll watch theTALK anymore. Maybe I won’t even watch Big Brother yet not watching CBS at all. NBC and ABC have some really good shows coming this Fall. Yep, I’ll start watching another station.
    It is a shame you are loosing people to other stations because you do not want to keep Leah Rimini!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!DA…DA………..DA…
    How stupid………………………………………….??????????????????????????

    There is definetly no reason to watch the Talk anymore. I was a loyal viewer from day one. I will be sure to remind all my friends to keep their recorders and TV’s away from The Talk. I never did like the View but I think I will watch them just so their ratings go up and tank The Talk. Ratings were up and we were happy, why ruin that?

    I am not happy with the changes that have been made on the cast of The Talk. The original cast had such a good chemistry, I cannot believe that now it is so messed up. I was a HUGE fan of As the World Turns and began watching the talk & Taping it to watch at a later time, in which took the place of As the World Turns, I am so disappointed. I am trying to watch it now, and the chemistry is NOT there, needless to say this will be the last day and time I will tune in or tape “The Talk”….GIVE US BACK AS THE WORLD TURNS PLEASE!!!!!!!!
    At least it is something we can stomach.

    Whomever made the decision to split up the original cast of THE TALK has ruined a great show…. BORING NOW

  9. Sandi says:

    Big mistake letting Leah and. Holly leave. Did they want to leave or did the producers! They are so fun and interesting. Have to say when Sharon isn’t there it is a little dumb.

  10. Marilyn says:

    They made a huge mistake… watched first show with new hosts, haven’t watched it since…. it was (YAWN) boring. CBS took a great show and made it mediocre at best. Shame.
