CBS has ordered a daytime talk show to replace a long-running soap opera after it ends in the fall, reports The New York Times’ Media Decoder blog.
The concept for the show, which replaces “As the World Turns,” is being compared to ABC’s “The View.” The show will feature a panel of moms in a roundtable discussion, the story reports. Among them will be Chen, who is the wife of Leslie Moonves, chief executive of CBS Corp.
Another host is Sara Gilbert, who developed the format for the show and will executive-produce as well as co-host it, according to The Times. The others are Sharon Osbourne, Holly Robinson Peete, Leah Remini and Marissa Jaret Winokur.
Chen will reportedly give up her job as co-host of CBS’s “The Early Show.”
