This is fantastic! I always felt that Carrie Ann Inaba would be the perfect co-host for The Talk, and now she is! Cannot wait for the coming months for things to be explored!

Even though the Talk has been on the air for 9 years, I refuse to watch it as it replaced ATWT. Congratulations to Carrie Ann on her new job but I won’t be an observer.

I felt the same, too, Barbara. However, I cannot fault CBS solely. I also blame P&G who wanted out of the soap business. I do enjoy The Talk every now and again, and cannot fault anyone on that show for taking a job.

I like Carrie Ann but I was disappointed that they didn’t pick Carney Wilson who I think has more in common with the show. Carrie Ann is great on “Dancing with the stars” but she just doesn’t suit this show.IMO
