CBS has renewed The Talk for another season, according to The Hollywood Reporter. CBS' answer to ABC's The View has held steady in the ratings, averaging 2.2 million viewers since its debut. Check out what Nina Tassler, President of CBS Entertainment, had to say about The Talk after the jump.
After only a few months on the air, The Talk has delivered creative and ratings growth and established a strong profile in daytime. 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 line-up. We're excited about its current success and the potential to grow and evolve 'The Talk' even further.
I wonder if this will have any effect on the rest of daytime, i.e. the soaps?

Surprising no one with any pop-culture acumen, reviews for the debut of The Talk on CBS have been overwhelmingly negative. The series jumped off with a predictably dull premiere this week, featuring the insipid collaboration of Julie Chen, Leah Remini, Sara Gilbert, Holly Robinson Peete and Sharon Osbourne, and an irrelevant and uninteresting interview with Christie Brinkley. Seriously, who iwaswaiting for an interview with Christie Brinkley?!
The show would have you know it's "nothing at all like The View" and you know what? We all completely agree. The View is watchable most days, if as nothing else, a televised trainwreck. We've already shared what some critics have said, but check out more blistering reviews after the jump: READ MORE
During a recent roundtable discussion in New York City for The Talk, the chatfest replacing As The World Turns as of Oct. 18, Julie Chen revealed why she decided to reduce her appearances on The Early Show to do the talker, stating "the heavens opened up". Uh, more like your hubby Les Moonves caused the "World" had to stop turning, Jules!
What's sad is several members of this panel are women I have admired in other mediums, Sharon Osborne, Sara Gilbert, Holly Robinson Peete, and I certainly don't begrudge them enjoying their new television experience, however CBS Daytime has to realize all these giddy clips promoting a show that is taking the place of a pop culture institution is going to be a hard pill for the fans who followed As The Worrld Turns for over five decades to swallow.
It would have been smarter to do a docusoap in this hour, in my opinion, or a more service-oriented talk show, as opposed to a vehicle that would have all these women grinning like Cheshire Cats in promos, while fans are still grieving the P&G soaps.. After you check out the roundtable discussion, watch a promo for The Talk after the jump. Will you be giving the show a chance, or is it DOA in your household? READ MORE
