Aisha Tyler Announces Her Exit From THE TALK In Emotional Moment


She’s that good, she’s that in-demand, and she has dreams to be a major director behind-the-scenes, because of all of this and more, in a heartfelt and emotional moment on Thursday’s episode of the CBS afternoon talker, The Talk, Aisha Tyler announced her departure from the series at the end of its current season.

Tyler, who has been with the The Talk since 2011 said that she had become too busy with her many other projects to continue co-hosting the daily show five days a week, citing. “I just realized I had to let something go,” as she said it tearfully.

In addition to co-hosting The Talk, Tyler has been upped this season to series regular on  CBS’ Criminal Minds, continues to host the improv show, Whose Line Is It Anyway,  and voices over a character on the animated series, Archer.  She has also begun directing and her first feature Axis received critical-praise and awards. Aisha added that she plans to return to The Talk for guest-host stints and to promote her projects.

Immediately following her on-screen announcement The Talk official twitter feed posted, “Don’t cry because it’s over, smile because it happened. Lots of happy tears as we wish Aisha Tyler the best possible future!”

Watch Aisha’s bittersweet moment after the jump where she tells the viewers at home, and in the studio audience with Julie Chen, Sharon Osbourne, Sara Gilbert and Sheryl Underwood surrounding her, that she is departing the series.  Then let us know your thoughts on The Talk panel without Aisha?  What did you think of her goodbye announcement?

Good for her for realizing she is overextended with all her jobs.
I will miss her on The Talk; she is smart,fair& very articulate.


Time to bring back Holly Robinson Peet.


Beat to Aisha, doing HER, making moves


I’m not home to watch daytime tv.. If i were home I would not watch it..
I have on occasion clicked through when home with whatever and my gawd was it horrible LOL

do tell– just what is the purpose of the Talk?
why would people want to listen to 5? loud women bitching about whatever LOL.

And why would adult people dress up like Halloween to jump up and down and yell to win a prize ahaaa.

Anyways, if they all left the Talk I’d be cool with it ..
( not like I’d be tuning in anyways)


dress up like halloween – when does that happen on the talk????
i have only watched when they have soap stars on but i have never seen anyone is costumes………………….


You may be mixing up The Talk with The View because your description is perfect for the latter. The women on The Talk are wonderful examples of how women can be together and not bitch, backbite and make women look bad. Sounds like you are a whole lotta fun to be around.

You must have confuse this with The View.


I completely agree with you. Julie Chen acts like she is above everybody. In my opinion, the only reason she has the job is because her husband is a bigwig at the network. She is always talking down to and condisending people as if they know nothing. Like her would is law. I remember reading an article saying that if one of the main hosts deceided to leave, Carnie Wilson would be made the first offer for a permanent position. The only time I watch the show is when they have a person or a segment that I want to see. Once the segment is finished, I shut it off




Carnie Wilson is a great idea for a replacement.


It is awful and the advertisements is even worse. If you watch any of the CBS shows On-Demand, the ads for the show are shown “ad” nauseum. Not too long ago they had the “Dance Moms” host as a co-host. I thought, “isn’t this woman a criminal?”


Goes to show- I do not watch daytime TV lol confused it all up..
The one Goldie is on (the View?) is just women talking over each other squeaking loud and louder, I saw no purpose to the show – Annoying is what it is..

The Halloween custom was Making a Deal.. they look like dumbarses jumping up and down to win a prize dressed up like crazy wahzus on a monday morning.. LOL

I watch the soaps online..
thanky god for the internet..
I absolutely could not watch the soaps on daytime tv live/whatever.

These gal pal talk shows are based on chemistry so whether or not the show will suffer from her leaving will depend on who replaces her and if anyone else leaves. The View survived the first couple changes on the panel, but over time, that show became a shadow of what it was— and as cute as a button Kelly and Ryan are– the show was never the same after Regis left. I hoping come fall the Talk will spare us weeks of auditioning co hosts in order to have the big reveal in November sweeps— just chose one of the already popular guest hosts and be done with it.


Get a grip lady.Who cares?This shallow,vain woman hyperventilating while bragging about all her great success seems rather self-indulgent.No?And how big of her to announce that she’ll return to promote her other projects.Seem rather narcissistic to me-I’m sure many would disagree with,of course.


After watching Vanessa Williams on the show yesterday, I would love to see her as a new addition. Class and sass!


Dont watch the talk or the view just a wast if time


So emotional, maybe she was pushed out?


who cares?!
bring back guiding light or as the world turns as a half hour show like b n b and air it internationally to make it profitable…there s enough useless talk shows and not enough soaps!


we can only dream I still miss another world


Guiding Light and Another World coming back would be great, even if they are half an hour like you stated.


Aisha Tyler is amazing! I recall her year on THE GHOST WHISPERER and fell in love with her then. She elevates everything she does. Not a big THE TALK viewer but when I see the show, I gravitate to her. Proud of her accomplishments,and to make roads in the industry as a director is admirable.

Julie Chen Says Goodbye To THE TALK Via Video Message

As anticipated on Tuesday, Julie Chen officially and publicly exited The Talk.  Through a videotaped message to her co-hosts, viewers and staff and behind the scene personnel, Chen wrapped-up her run.

While Chen has bowed out of The Talk following her husband Les Moonves’ removal from CBS following allegations of sexual misconduct, she will continue on through the end of this season as the host of the reality-competition series, Big Brother.

On The Talk, Eve tossed to Chen’s videotaped exit message which the ladies of the panel also saw for the first time during the live broadcast:

Here is what Julie shared: “I have been at THE TALK since the day it started 9 years ago, and the cast, crew and staff have become family to me over the years. But right now, I need to spend more time at home with my husband and our young son, so I’ve decided to leave THE TALK. I want to thank everyone at the show for the wonderful years together. I will always, always cherish the memories we shared. Most important, I want to thank you, the viewers, for allowing me into your home every day. It was a privilege that I will forever be grateful for. To everyone behind the scenes, I send you my love. I will miss you all very, very much. To Eve: you’re the newest one at the table, but I feel like I’ve known you forever. You are even more beautiful inside than you are on the outside, if that’s even possible, because, you know I think you are flawless. Sheryl, thank you for being the perfect go-to partner for the last 7 years. I open, you close, and you always bring down the house. We called ourselves “The Book Ends,” remember? And we always laughed when we said it to each other. Your wit, and timing, and humor, and compassion, and intelligence is simply unparalleled. You are incredible. Carrie Ann (Inaba), I don’t know, but in my opinion, you look awful good sitting in that chair, my Asian sister. I’m just saying! And finally, to Sara and Sharon: we’ve been together since day one at THE TALK! I’ve spent every day with you both. I will always treasure our friendship, the great parenting advice from both of you, and the memories and laughs and all the private jokes that the three of us have shared. We are the original three musketeers. I love you all, and I know this show, and the sisterhood it stands for, will live on for many, many, many more years to come. You ladies got this, and I could not be more proud to call you my friends. I love you.”

Following the video, Sara Gilbert, creator and co-host of The Talk  thanked Chen for being a major part of the series ongoing success, as Sheryl Underwood looked on in tears.

70th Primetime Emmys: Game Of Thrones, Assassination Of Gianni Versace, ‘Mrs. Maisel’, Henry Winkler Are Night’s Big Winners

Last night in Los Angeles, the 70th Primetime Emmys were handed out.  The event featured several surprise winners, but without little drama throughout its 3-hour telecast that was hosted by Saturday Night Live’s Colin Jost and Michael Che.

The awards kicked-off though finally honoring Henry Winkler, winning his first ever Primetime Emmy for his performance as Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series for HBO’s Barry.

Winkler had previously won two Daytime Emmys.  First in 1995 for the Outstanding Children’s Special, CBS Schoolbreak special, All The Kids Do It, and in 2005 winning as Outstanding Performer in an Animated Program for Clifford’s Puppy Days.

The former Fonz of Happy Days reacted on stage to his first primetime award victory exclaiming: “Oh, my god. Oh, my god. Oh, my god!

As the audience gave him a standing ovation Winkler added: “I wrote this 43 years ago.  Skip Brittenham (entertainment lawyer) said to me a long time ago: ‘If you stay at the table long enough, the chips come to you.’ And tonight, I got to clear the table.”

In another memorable moment, Glenn Weiss, who won for Outstanding Direction of a Special for “The Oscars” took his turn at the podium by honoring his late mother (she died two weeks ago) by proposing to his longtime girlfriend Jan Svendsen, on live television.

As Jan sat in the audience, Weiss began during his acceptance speech: “Jan, you are the sunshine in my life. And mom was right, don’t ever let go of your sunshine. You wonder why I don’t like to call you my girlfriend? Because I want to call you my wife.”  With that, walking to the stage with the roar of the crowd behind her was Svendsen as Weiss continued and pulled out a ring! “This is the ring that my dad put on my mom’s finger 67 years ago. And to my sisters and brothers, I didn’t swipe it. Dad knows I have it, O.K.?”   Jan said, “yes”, and the Emmy audience was thrilled.

As to the night’s big winners; check out the winner’s list below to see how your favorite nominated actors and programs fared!

Julie Chen To Step Down From ‘The Talk’

As of Monday night, the only hosting gig that Julie Chen has resumed since her husband, Les Moonves was ousted as CBS Chairman is Big Brother on CBS.

Chen had yet to return to her seat at the table as the anchor of the Daytime Emmy Award-winning series, The Talk.

Moonves has been accused of sexual misconduct with new allegations surfacing in the New Yorker as recent as just the other week.

Tonight, Page Six is reporting that Julie is walking away from The Talk and will resign.

CNN is also reporting that Chen has made the decision and it is effective immediately and that she will address her decision through a videotaped message to viewers on Tuesday’s episode of The Talk

The competition in the daytime talk space, the ladies of The View, voiced that they think there is no way for Chen to return to the panel of The Talk, especially since the CBS series addresses the hot social topics of the day and the #MeToo movement which is so much of our culture these days,

The only statement Chen has made on the new allegations against Moonves, is that she is standing by him when she signed off on a recent episode of Big Brother saying:  “I’m Julie Chen Moonves. Good Night.”

So, do you think Julie stepping down from The Talk is the right choice?  Is she in no-win situation? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
