CBS announced today that they picked up The Talk for a 15th season. That is the good news. The bad news is that it will be its final season.

“It goes without saying that hosting and producing a year-round talk show is no easy task, and we express our sincere gratitude to our amazing hosts Akbar Gbajabiamila, Amanda Kloots, Natalie Morales, Jerry O’Connell, and Sheryl Underwood, our executive producer/showrunner Rob Crabbe and the hardworking producing team and crew. We also want to acknowledge our former show hosts and colleagues who contributed throughout the seasons,” Amy Reisenbach, President, CBS Entertainment, and David Stapf, President, CBS Studios said in a statement. We truly appreciate the skill, creativity, and dedication everyone involved brought to the show every day. And of course, we thank the numerous guests who appeared, and the millions of viewers who tuned in daily. For the final season, we plan to celebrate the show and give it the proper sendoff it deserves when it concludes in December 2024.”

It is expected to be replaced by the upcoming African-American Soap Opera, The Gates.

Are you going to miss it? I am going to miss seeing what funny things Jerry was going to do during each episode.


Alberto Guerra reveals what they smoked while filming Griselda

I haven’t watched Grisdela yet on Netflix, and I probably won’t. But, from what Akbar Gbajabiamila said on The Talk yesterday, they did a lot of smoking cigarettes.

So yesterday, when Alberto Guerra was on the daytime talk show, Akbar asked if they were really smoking the cancer sticks with tobacco.

Guerra told him, “There were a lot of cigarettes, fake ones, obviously. They were lettuce. And I couldn’t have a salad.”

The actor clarified it was the “regular lettuce” and not the devil’s one.

That sounds so gross.

My dad did a play in Manhattan, and the actors smoked tea leaves. That sounds so much better than lettuce.


Watch Jerry O’Connell & Akbar Gbajabiamila get mammograms

It is October, and that means it is breast cancer awareness month. Therefore, the news and talk shows will make their female anchors and hosts get mamograms on television.

But breast cancer does not only affect women. Men also get it. So The Talk asked Jerry O’Connell & Akbar Gbajabiamila to get one done, so they did it on today’s show.

The two men experienced what we go through once a year. They felt their moobs get smushed by the machine. And they said it didn’t hurt that much.

In fact, now they can be more supportive to their wives and be there for their daughters when it is their time. Although, by the time their four daughters are old enough to get one, I doubt they will still be doing mammograms with all of the technological advancements in medicine.

I want to thank O’Connell and Gbajabiamila for getting one done in front of the camera. It is going to make a big difference to both men and women who are hesitant to get it done.


Nicole Byer teaches The Talk hosts how to use a pole

The Talk might air during the daytime, but they were doing some nighttime activities today on the talk show.

Along with being a comedian, Nicole Byer knows how to work a pole. So today, when she was on the CBS show, she decided to show Amanda Kloots, Natalie Morales, Akbar Gbajabiamila, and Jerry O’Connell how to wrap themselves around a stripper’s pole.

How did they do? Let’s just say CBS has an opening at 12:35a and I think they should do The Talk: After Dark! Because they were all that good! So much so that they earned their dollars today.


Drew Barrymore, The Talk, and Jennifer Hudson halt production
September 17th, 2023 under Drew Barrymore, Jennifer Hudson, Talk Shows. [ Comments: none ]

Last week, Drew Barrymore, The Talk, and Jennifer Hudson went back into production and planned on premiering the new season of their daytime talk shows tomorrow. And the striking workers of the Writers Guild of America, along with actors, were not happy with their decisions.

Therefore, they started picketing their shows because even though they are cleared by the Screen Actors Guild to do their talk shows, they are not from the WGA because they have writers from the union who work there.

So, on Friday, Barrymore released a tearful apology video, and she got attacked again. So, today, she made an announcement. “I have listened to everyone, and I am making the decision to pause the show’s premiere until the strike is over,” she wrote. “I have no words to express my deepest apologies to anyone I have hurt and, of course, to our incredible team who works on the show and has made it what it is today. We really tried to find our way forward. And I truly hope for a resolution for the entire industry very soon.”

Shortly after her announcement, The Talk and Jennifer Hudson followed suit.

I hope that the AMPTP finally negotiates a fair contract ASAP because this is really hurting people. They have billions of dollars, and most of the people who work in show business have just hundreds left in their bank accounts. It is really bad here. People who aren’t even in the industry are struggling because they depend on the studios and their employees to keep their businesses alive.

It is disgusting how the AMPTP has handled this whole situation. Wait until they find out that you can’t take it with you in hell.
