The Talkis talking about the possibility of a few hosting changes for season 2: The CBS daytime chat show is considering not picking up options for Leah Remini and Holly Robinson Peete as it evaluates its creative direction, sources say. (Deadline first reported the news.) Meanwhile, the show has already renewed deals for Sara Gilbert, Julie Chen, and Sharon Osbourne, who will be on hiatus for part of the fall to spend time with husband Ozzy Osbourne.
In a statement, CBS said: “The Talk just finished a strong first season, quickly establishing a new daytime brand for CBS in just a few months. The producers are currently working on the show’s creative game plan for season 2, which launches Sept. 6.” The Talk averaged 2.2 million viewers in July, which marked its largest audience since February.
