‘The Talk’ Appears to Have Two New Hosts Lined Up — Including the Matriarch of a VERY High-Profile TV Family

Aug 26, 2011  •  Post A Comment

CBS is closing in on two new hosts for “The Talk” after the network declined to pick up the contracts of Leah Remini and Holly Robinson Peete, reports EW.com’s Inside TV blog.

The network may be positioning Kris Jenner, the mom and manager of the Kardashians, as one of its new hosts. For now, though, it’s a guest-hosting gig.

Jenner has signed on for a two-week appearance early in the season and is being considered as a substitute for Sharon Osbourne when she isn’t available, the story notes.

"The Talk" has also picked comedian and radio personality Sheryl Underwood to join as a co-host at the start of this season, with Underwood possibly becoming a regular, the piece adds.

Julie Chen and Sara Gilbert remain on board, with the new season set to launch Sept. 6.

  1. Having Ms. Kardashian on CBS is a little like asking O.J. Simpson to host a sports show on Espn.
    This is not a move for a number one network, but a cable channel.

  2. Wow, what a surprise, Julie Chen gets to stay. Guess it helps when you aid in the breakup of the bosses (Leslie Moonves) 26 year marriage, sleep with him, and then marry him……
    I concur with @Miickey’s assessment of Kris Jenner. What a career she’s had starting with helping her own daughter promote her porno film. Yeah, she’s someone you want to give more tv time to!
    Geez, CBS dumps one dolt (Katie Couric) and embraces two more. The “Tiffany Network” is about as Tiffany as the prize in the cracker jacks box is real gold…

  3. I thought the whole purpose of t.v. shows was to get people to watch your network and bring in money. Why then would CBS let two of the most popular hosts go just to make the most unpopular host happy…because that one host is married to the head honcho at CBS…The worse part is, they don’t even feel like the viewers deserve to know why they made this decision…or maybe it’s not that we do or don’t deserve an explanation, but rather they don’t have an explanation for letting them go…or at least not a good reason. It is a shame that CBS doesn’t care what the viewers really want…

  4. are you joking me? The queen of raising whores will be on the show? I stopped watching the minute they got rid of Leah and will never watch again. The Talk sucks!

  5. the mother of raising whore’s will be on the show? Queen of plastic surgery? I have not watched the show since they fired Leah. Ban the Talk. Unlike the page on fb. Give Leah her own show.

  6. This is very sad and I am no longer watching. Leah and Holly brought life and laughter to the show. I honestly believe Julie Chen was jealous. If they are looking for ratings they have made a serious error. All over the web people are in an uproar and no longer watching the show. Nice going Julie, you just killed the show!

  7. I no longer watch The Talk since they fired Leah and Holly. I was a faithful viewer and I’m disappointed that CBS couldn’t even be bothered to mention the change or give the two ladies a reason for letting them go.

  8. I really thought Les was a pretty good business man until this. I am glad you love THIS wife / robot but seriously us as FANS loved Leah and Holly. Most business people love customers and think they are right, sad this is not the case for CBS. Thousands of us dislike the new changes but nobody seems to care.

  9. I have tried to continue watching the talk because I like Sharon Osborne, but frankly listening to Sheryl Underwood just makes me cringe! She is offensive on many levels. Leah and Holly were down to earth, fun loving and made me look forward to seeing the Talk everyday! I had hoped to see it for years to come, but I can’t take the replacements you have stuck us with. Kris Jenner is not someone I care to see either, I could never consider raising my daughters to be anything like hers!

  10. wow like jenner is going to help this show really!!! and Sheryl Underwood makes me sick!!

  11. wow like jenner is going to help this show really!!! and Sheryl Underwood makes me sick!!

  12. wow like jenner is going to help this show really!!! and Sheryl Underwood makes me sick!!

  13. I loved The Talk until I found out Leah and Holly were fired with no explanation. Kris Jenner and Julie Chen can have their own show called Satan’s Whore (that’s Julie) and Fame Whore (that’s Kris). Very disappointed in CBS, The Talk, Julie “Stuck-up B” Chenbot, and her dirty old man husband Les.

  14. With Julie’s behavior in all this it appears she must have been jealous of Holly for being smarter than her, and of Leah for having an actual personality. Shame on her for ruining a perfectly awesome show and screwing over two talented ladies!

  15. I totally agree! I was a faithful viewer the THE TALk since it first aired. I am thoroughly disappointed with the firing of Leah and Holly. What the heck are you all thinking. They were funny and kept the audience on their toes. I will never understand why you would savatoge a show that was working. I haven’t watched the show since. Its just boring!!! The dumbest move ever!!!!!!!!!!!

  16. Absolutely the stupidest thing you could have done was to get rid of Holly and Leah! THEY made the show, not Sarah and certainly not Julie! Way to flush a completely awesome and winning show in the toilet! Congrats on that dumb asses!

  17. i hate the view but i would rather sit through that awful show then watch the talk! politic’s again instead of what the viewers want no thanks to porn star, boring comic!! and i am not sure who the other lady is bye bye talk hello the view!!!

  19. Are there a bunch of children commenting on here? Seems like it. Personally attacking everyone’s character?? Shame on you! Oh but wait..ya’ll are perfect right? You must be.
    Now for CBS..The Talk was a perfect show with perfect ladies hosting it…why is it that when you have a hit, do you insist on changing it?? This was my favorite show, I will still watch a few more times to get the feel for the new ladies, and make my own decision based on whether they interest me or not.. but really CBS I think you messed up on this one

  20. What a disappointment!!! Boring! Boring! Boring! Bring back Leah and Holly. Julie….shame on you for ruining a talk show.
    The View is a WINNER once more!

  21. The show now sucks. Leah was the funniest one!! then Holly. The show was perfect. I didn’t like it at first, but after getting to know the hosts..I started to like it. The personalities worked perfectly together. It’s like they are struggling now to find chemestry. Now its BORING!! Let’s see how long this show lasts now. they will lose a lot of viewers over this.
    Who ever you have filling in for them..WHO are they?? Very disappointing!

  23. I can’t stand Chen. Even when this is supposed to be a show that just has a group of women talking she sounds like shes reporting

  24. @ Opie,Julie Chen and Sara Gilbert r who r left. She’s not very relatable to me and I just don”t like Sara!

  25. The show is not the same without Leah and Holly. I actually stopped watching. So disappointing…

  26. I CANNOT STAND JULIE CHEN; SHE IS A HOME WRECKER AND AN VERY UNATTARCTIVE. ..I ALSO HATE SARA GILBERT AND SHARON OSBOURNE. THEY ALL DISGUST ME. BRING BACK HOLLY AND LEAH.
    I HOPE THE NETWORK CANCELS THE SHOW. AND I HOPE JULIE’S HUSBAND CHEATS ON HER -WHAT GOES AROUND, COMES AROUND!

  27. Holly is not smart. However, I agree Sheryl is so ridiculous and annoying. Every time there is a serious subject Underwood has to make a stupid comment that just leads everyone else off track and the group loses focus. Shes not funny she is tacky and disruptive. She belongs on springer not the Talk. Then Julie goes to commercial to save everyone the embarrassment of sitting there dealing with whatever dumb thing sheryl just said. i do not miss Holly she was nice but she did not contribute tha much and she did have her own agenda and would monopolize the segment if left to run loose. Leh also was disruptive she however just thought the show was a hour of playtime for her and sarah to get together and catch up and girl time. It was obvious Sarah would often become uncomfortable during these episodes of Leahs. So i enjoy Alisha, Sarah,Sharon, and Julie. i do not need to see kris Jenner or Regis ever again I would love to see Sheryl go also.
