Yesterday, Drew Barrymore announced that she will be returning to her talk show even though the WGA and SAG-AFTRA strikes are still going on.

Today, The Hollywood Reporter says that CBS’s other daytime talk show, The Talk, will also start airing new episodes next week.

However, it is not known if all of the hosts, Akbar Gbajabiamila, Amanda Kloots, Sheryl Underwood, Jerry O’Connell & Natalie Morales, will be back on the set. O’Connell has been seen walking the line every week since the strike started.

In fact, The Talk was the only daytime talk show to honor the Writers’ strike and stop filming new episodes in May.

Part of the reason why that is the case is because they go live while the other talk shows tape in advance. So, Jennifer Hudson and Sherri Shepherd will begin taping this week so that their shows can start airing next week.

There is only one daytime talk show whose fate is still up in the air, and that is The Kelly Clarkson Show. The singer left LA at the end of last season for NYC.

While SAG-AFTRA has cleared their talent for talk shows, WGA has not cleared Barrymore, The Talk, The View, Clarkson, and Hudson, who use WGA writers. Live with Kelly and Mark, Tamron Hall, and Sherri do not use WGA writers.

I really hope and pray that AMPTP comes back to the table ASAP because they are not only hurting the actors and the writers, but they are also hurting those who work on the television shows and movies, along with the businesses near the studios. These extremely rich assholes will rot in hell. And the only positive thing about that is they can’t take their money with them. So they will be poor and in hell. And that sounds OK to me.
