'The Talk' renewed for third season, with the current hosts
CBS is bringing back The Talk for a third season, and this time without a panel shakeup.
The network announced a renewal for the daytime chat-fest, and plans to continue with the current lineup of Julie Chen, Sara Gilbert, Sharon Osbourne, Sheryl Underwood and Aisha Tyler. The show averages 2.2 million viewers. A CBS executive attributed the show’s success to the chemistry of the current panel lineup.
“We’re proud that The Talk has already established great brand identity in only its second season,” said David Stapf, president, CBS Television Studios. “Much of the success can be attributed to our hosts’ chemistry and the work of our producers, whose selection of topics and guests are clearly resonating with viewers.”
