Howard Stern Gets The Talk Hosts to Finally Talk About Holly Robinson Peete-Leah Remini Diss

13 December 2011 12:50 PM, PST | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Ah, The Howard Stern Show: Where people go to spill their guts. Leave it to the pioneering prober to get his guests talking, be it about their sex lives or why they unceremoniously got rid of Holly Robinson Peete and Leah Remini. Of course, that particular question was tailor-made for yesterday's guests, The Talk cohosts Julie Chen, Sara Gilbert and Sharon Osbourne, who all shared the hot seat in Stern's New York City studio. And he got as close to a real answer and Peete and Remini's firing as we're probably ever going to get. When Stern asked why no one called Remini and Peete (who previously admitted to E! News how "frustrating" it was not to know the reason she was »

'The Talk' hosts gab about first year, learning to open up, and booking...Jerry Sandusky? -- Exclusive

5 December 2011 3:06 PM, PST | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

Ratings for CBS’ daytime show The Talk may not look great, but the network insists they don’t tell the whole story. Though the show is averaging about 500,000 less viewers than what As The World Turns did in its final year (2.0 million versus 2.5 million), the show costs nearly 40 percent less to produce and is already considered profitable. And now that comics Aisha Tyler and Sheryl Underwood have joined the panel (replacing Leah Remini and Holly Robinson Peete), the show is finally finding its voice.

In their first interview together, the women of The Talk sat down with EW to chat »

Holly Robinson Peete: 'The Talk firing was a shock'

10 November 2011 9:15 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Holly Robinson Peete has revealed that she didn't expect to be axed from The Talk after a single season. The actress served as one of The Talk's original presenters alongside Julie Chen, Sara Gilbert and Sharon Osbourne, but exited the series in August alongside co-host Leah Remini. Discussing The Talk on Access Hollywood Live, Robinson Peete admitted that it wasn't her decision to leave the daytime talkshow. "I loved doing The Talk," she said. "I was really good at it. I was in my comfort zone... was feeling great about it... I did everything I was asked to do and brought it and then, poof!" (more) »

Holly Robinson Peete Shocked She Was Fired From The Talk

7 November 2011 3:31 AM, PST | ShockYa | See recent ShockYa news »

Holly Robinson Peete is stating that she was shocked when CBS decided not to renew her and co-host Leah Remini’s contracts for the current second season of its talk show ‘The Talk,’ AOL TV is reporting. Peete said she was kept in the dark for months that she wasn’t going to be asked back for another season, while rumors circulated that other actresses were going to take to take her place. Peete added that CBS executives never explained to her why her contract wasn’t being renewed. Comedian Sheryl Underwood has since filled Peete’s place, and Aisha Tyler will be replacing Remini. Peete also said she feels the show has drifted »

Aisha Tyler joins 'The Talk' as new co-host: Why she'll be great for the show

24 October 2011 4:03 PM, PDT | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

After the departure of Holly Robinson Peete and Leah Remini, CBS's daytime chatfest "The Talk" needed a little spicing up. That's why the news that all-around funnylady Aisha Tyler is joining comedian Sheryl Underwood and original members Sara Gilbert, Julie Chen and Sharon Osbourne is great for the show.

Why, you ask? Let us outline a few reasons below:

First things first, considering Osbourne is taking on a reduced role this season to spend time with her family, it helps to have another outspoken woman on the panel. Tyler is definitely not shy about sharing her opinions.

Tyler has experience as a host, having headed up E!'s "Talk Soup" from 2001-02, and brings an edgy wit to her role as Lana Kane on FX's animated hit, "Archer."

Did we mention she's funny? Because she's really, really funny.

Plus, she'll be great when discussing current events -- Tyler has a »

From Talk Soup to The Talk: Aisha Tyler Makes Her Morning-Show Debut!

24 October 2011 12:24 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Aisha Tyler just made herself fodder for the very show she once hosted. Be gentle, Joel McHale. The funnylady and onetime Talk Soup host is going to be doing her best to fill the gap left by chucklemeister Leah Remini and Holly Robinson Peete, signing on as the newest permanent cohost of the revamped The Talk. As it happens, little fanfare was made for Tyler's show debut, including any outright talk of the newest face on the panel. In fact, save for her mug getting added to the opening credits, the most the ladies could muster in the first half of the show was simply an acknowledgment by Julie Chen: "Hello and welcome to The Talk everyone, and a big welcome to Aisha Tyler." Earlier this year, the »

23 October 2011 6:49 PM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

The Talk will have something fresh to address on Monday — a new co-host. The CBS daytime talk show has officially added Aisha Tyler, the actress best known for gigs on Ghost Whisperer and Friends, to the panel alongside Sara Gilbert, Julie Chen, Sharon Osbourne and Sheryl Underwood.

Tyler previously guest-hosted on the daytime show that celebrates its one-year anniversary this month. She’ll debut Monday, according to Deadline.

In 2009, Tyler shot an eponymous talk show pilot for ABC that was described as a cross between daytime and late-night talk shows. The hope was to take the actress’ show to syndication. »

Leah Remini Signs Talent Deal With ABC

21 October 2011 10:03 AM, PDT | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

Exclusive: After her year-long daytime stint on CBS’ The Talk, Leah Remini is returning to primetime with a talent development deal at ABC and ABC Studios. The pact, which calls for the network and the studio to develop a comedy project for Remini to star in and produce, stems from a meeting the actress recently had with ABC Entertainment Group president Paul Lee. Along with Holly Robinson Peete, Remini made a surprising exit from The Talk last month after CBS opted not to pick up their options, leading to an outpouring of support from fans, including a campaign to get the two back on the daytime talk show. (Robinson Peete also recently booked her first post-Talk gig, an arc on CBS’ Mike & Molly). Remini, best known for her starring role on the long-running CBS sitcom The King Of Queens, has been in demand for comedy series with a string of »

Holly Robinson Peete Books First Gig Since Leaving ‘The Talk’: Arc On CBS Comedy ‘Mike & Molly’

13 October 2011 11:40 AM, PDT | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

Exclusive: No hard feelings? Two months after her surprising ouster from CBS’ daytime show The Talk, Holly Robinson Peete is returning to the network for her first major post-Talk gig: a multiple-episode arc on CBS’ sophomore comedy Mike & Molly. Robinson Peete has been enjoying an outpouring of support from fans of The Talk following CBS’ August decision not to pick up her and fellow co-host Leah Remini’s options for Season 2, and there has been a lot of curiosity about what the actress would do next. Joining a CBS series was probably not high on anybody’s guess list. Mike & Molly, from creator Mark Roberts, executive producer Chuck Lorre and Warner Bros TV, stars Billy Gardell as overweight police officer Mike and Melissa McCarthy as his plus-size schoolteacher girlfriend Molly. Robinson Peete will play a love interest for Mike’s partner Carl (Reno Wilson), who lives with grandmother and has been struggling with women. »

Sharon Osborne addresses absence from 'The Talk': 'One of my boobies was much larger!'

6 October 2011 1:44 PM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

On today’s episode of The Talk, Sharon Osbourne addressed her recent — and somewhat mysterious — absence from the CBS talk show. (Unlike Leah Remini and Holly Robinson-Peete, it had nothing to do with her contract). It’s not that she and Ozzy ran off to some tropical port o’ call. She just needed to, um, get her girls in order!

“One morning I woke up and one of my boobies was kind of much longer than the other,” she told her fellow co-hosts today. “I’m looking, thinking, this isn’t right.”

Osbourne goes on to explain how she »

Sara Gilbert will address breakup on 'The Talk'

29 September 2011 7:00 PM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

The women of CBS’ The Talk are expected to have a pretty heavy one on Friday when co-host and co-creator Sara Gilbert opens up for the first time about her recent breakup.

Last month, the 36-year-old Roseanne actress ended her 10-year relationship with TV producer Allison Adler (Chuck). Gilbert and Adler, 44, planned to share custody of their children, son Levi, 6, and daughter Sawyer, 4. 

According to an early transcript from the Sept. 30 show, Gilbert questions whether “marriage is all it’s cracked up to be.”

“I’ve never been married, but I was in a long relationship,” she says. “It’s emotional for me, »

Leah Remini and Ashley Tisdale Kid Around in 'Toddlers & Tiaras' Spoof

29 September 2011 2:45 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

It's nice to see Leah Remini keeping busy since being ousted from "The Talk." Remini and former "High School Musical" star Ashley Tisdale poke fun at TLC's morally questionable reality offering "Toddlers & Tiaras" in a new parody for Funny or Die. In the clip, Tisdale plays Mackenzie, a beauty-pageant veteran who, despite being 25 years old, still competes in the 5-to-7-year-old category. Hmmm; seems as though there might be an unfair advantage there… Watch Remini and Tisdale make light of child exploitation below. Toddlers & Tiaras with Ashley Tisdale from Ashley Tisdale »

Morning Meme: Sean Hayes Heads West, Anderson Cooper's New Friend, and Live-Action "Toy Story" Is Awesome

29 September 2011 4:41 AM, PDT | The Backlot | See recent The Backlot news »

Sean Hayes has sold a Western to NBC.  It's going to center around a doctor who moves to the Rockies and stands out because he doesn't fight with guns, but rather new theories that are being practiced in the East. So it's largely Doctor Quinn, Medicine Women with a male lead. Someone get Chad Allen on the phone.

PETA is upset. What, you need me to be more specific? Well, this time it's about the New York Times picture of the "sexy chicken" which has been drawing raves. But according to PETA, "It's necrophilia. It's not amusing. It's just ghastly and sickly. It's not fitting for The New York Times." After watching Mitchell and Cam go nuts on a juice fast last night, I can't help but think PETA would be less angry if they'd just eat a steak.

'The Talk' reboots without two of its original co-hosts - but is it better?

28 September 2011 2:16 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

The last time I checked in with "The Talk," it was like showing up during the closing moments of a wedding reception that's gone off the rails -- the bride and groom are drunk, the flower girl has thrown up behind the buffet table and the guests have started an impromptu cake fight. With wild monkey co-host Leah Remini cackling and chattering hysterically on every episode, the tone of the show was set firmly at "hormonal breakdown" on a daily basis as Remini's co-hosts battled to get a word in edgewise and Julie Chen looked on with an expression of mild »

'The Talk' season 2 ratings steady after panel shakeup

8 September 2011 1:51 PM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

New panel, no problem: CBS’ The Talk ratings are pretty steady after the network shook up the show’s panel this summer.

With Leah Remini and Holly Robinson Peete off the show, and Sharon Osbourne, Sara Gilbert, Molly Shannon, Julie Chen and Sheryl Underwood leading the chat fest, here’s where we’re at after the first two days of the show’s second season: The Talk delivered a 1.8 household rating on Tuesday and a 1.9 on Wednesday.

That’s right in line with the last full month of The Talk ratings in July (1.9 average) and up slightly from the last »

The Talk Officially Ousts Holly Robinson Peete

No shock here: Holly Robinson Peete will not return to The Talk this fall.

The actress-turned-daytime host took to her blog to put to rest — and confirm — what has widely been rumored in recent weeks: that CBS has not asked her to rejoin the roundtable dissussion in Season 2.

“After weeks in limbo, I was finally ‘officially’ given word from CBS today that I have not been picked up for the 2nd season of The Talk,” she wrote. “While I am relieved to have this closure, it doesn’t diminish my disappointment one bit about not continuing with a show I »
