The Talk Has Met With More Than 400 Potential New Hosts to Fill Aisha Tyler's Shoes

7 September 2017 2:50 PM, PDT | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

The hunt for a new host to join The Talk is heating up. Aisha Tyler's emotional exit from the CBS daytime series on Aug. 4 left an open spot at the table, and it's one that's not easy to fill. As a journalist who's stopped by the show as one of its Top Talkers more than a dozen times in recent years, I can assure you that the cast's affection for - and chemistry with - each other continues when the camera is not rolling. With that in mind, the search for a fifth person to join the fold is a task everyone involved in is taking seriously - so seriously, in fact, that The Talk will not be announcing a new host right away when the show's eighth season debuts on Sept. 11. Worth the Wait I joined hosts Julie Chen, Sara Gilbert, Sharon Osbourne, and Sheryl Underwood for lunch »

‘Nashville’ Actor Charles Esten Remembers His Start in Music

25 August 2017 10:15 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

For Charles Esten, creativity has been a constant battle among the muses of music, acting and comedy. He’s exercised his acting muscle in movies like “The Postman” and “Swing Vote” as well as TV series like HBO’s “Big Love” and Disney Channel’s “Jessie.” Comedy improv show “Whose Line Is It Anyway?,” with co-star Wayne Brady, let him use all three talents at once, and since 2012, he’s played lead guitarist Deacon Claybourne on “Nashville.” Last year, Esten racked up lots of attention with his music project “Every Single Friday,” for which he released a new song each week for more than a year. And in June he served as host of the Cmt Music Awards. But his initial break in the biz came on the small screen, in Fox’s 1995 sitcom “The Crew,” which led to his first mention in Variety in the Aug. 30, 1995, issue.

Bill Maher, HBO Face Backlash After Host Uses Racial Slur on ‘Real Time’

3 June 2017 11:30 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Bill Maher apologized and HBO scolded him publicly. But will that be enough to quiet the storm over Maher’s use of a racial slur during Friday’s edition of “Real Time with Bill Maher”?

Public outrage swelled following Friday’s 10 p.m. live airing of “Real Time with Bill Maher.” HBO issued a statement Saturday calling the host’s use of the phrase “I’m a house n—–” during an interview with Nebraska Sen. Ben Sasse “completely inexcusable and tasteless.” HBO said the remark would be edited out of subsequent airings of the episode. Maher made the comment in jest after Sasse invited Maher to spend a day working in the fields of Nebraska’s farms.

Maher acknowledged that the N-word was “offensive” and said he regretted using it. “Friday nights are always my worst night of sleep because I’m up reflecting on the things I should or shouldn’t have said on my live »
