    The power of Aisha Tyler. She brings ratings…didn’t help Talk Soup though.

  • MBmomof3

    It Stinks!!!

  • Christie

    I agree with MBmomof3. The show is terrible now without the original cast. I used to tune in every day just to see Leah. That woman is hysterical, and all of the women had an excellent vibe–just an unbeatable chemistry. But now… total snooze fest. And NO, Sheryl is not even remotely funny, although she tries awfully hard to be. Stopped watching it a looong time ago, but just the other day, out of sheer curiosity, I tuned in to give it one final chance, but it still sucked.

    I love the show……it is WAY better than last year…….the cast change was needed…..the show with cheryl and Aisha is way funnier, than the previous cast…….i actually watch now….and its better than the view because they are not constantly talking over each other……..

  • Pat K

    I loved the show when it had the original cast members. I couldn’t believe they fired Leah & Holly….they were hilarious. Sheryl is terrible….so ghetto & not funny. She makes ridiculous comments like when Martha Stewart was on. Sharon threw something at her & told her to behave. I like Sharon, but why do they let her take over hosting when Julie is gone…it takes her so long when she talks! Sheryl definitely needs to be replaced….Please!

  • Sheryl

    I too liked the original cast better….I tried to watch it after Holly and Leah left….but I found it too boring and Julie makes me sick!

  • Cindy

    I enjoy watching the show. It is fun. The casts do a good job of delivering a reasonable discussion.

  • Cindy

    Like listening to different perspectives.
