THE TALK, daytime television’s fastest growing network talk show and 2012 Daytime Emmy nominee, features a panel of well-known news and entertainment personalities discussing current events, pop culture, contemporary issues, family, celebrity and the trending topics of the day. The daily one-hour series is co-hosted by Julie Chen, Sara Gilbert, Sharon Osbourne, Sheryl Underwood and Aisha Tyler. The hosts swap stories, challenge each other on issues and engage the studio audience and viewers at home about events in the headlines and their own homes. Show segments include guest interviews with entertainers and newsmakers, musical performances, how-to demos and appearances from extraordinary people with stories that engage and inform. The show was developed by Gilbert, who also serves as executive producer.

RATING: TV14-DL (Rating may change on day of broadcast due to specific subject matter.)

    The spoof of Vegas will probably pull in better ratings than the real Vegas ;)

    I’m glad CBS Marketing is trying new ideas to keep thins fresh and hip.

    Not sure how well it will work as the H50 Live Tweet ending didn’t seem to do much.

    However, I am all for out of the box thinking instead of the same old drone/cookie cutter ideas.

    The shows that they choose (1 for each respective day) are all 10pm shows, which is probably just a coincidence. What I see is 2 freshmen shows that probably have 1 and 2 yr lives unless the ratings get a boost, 2 shows that are going to get syndication numbers next season but could use a boost and 1 show that is their oldest that would appreciate a slight boost.

    Interesting idea. The Talk has done well this season, so its a nice addition!

  • AniMatsuri

    Also, it could juice The Talk’s ratings too as poeple tune in to see how their favorite shows are spoofed.

  • DryedMangoez

    I can’t wait to see the awesome Chenbot acting!

  • Blake Williams

    I would love to see them spoof The Good Wife, The Mentalist, and The Amazing Race

    @Community RIP

    Did you even read what it says? Probably not. The Talk is not going to be on any of those shows. Those shows will have their actors on The Talk playing their parts with the women of The Talk. Why will that make you stop watching those shows?
