Looks like there will be a male chatting it up with the ladies and their guests in the upcoming season of CBS afternoon’s The Talk.

According to The Wrap, sources with knowledge of the situation behind the scenes indicate that Jerry O’Connell is very close to a deal and has been in discussions with the series since May.  However, CBS refused to comment on the item.

O’Connell has been a guest host on episodes of The Talk, and the series is currently under a makeover, in a way, after the exit of Sharon Osbourne – it appears O’Connell would take her spot.

Jerry has previously guest-hosted The Wendy Williams Show and has been known to express that he loves daytime.  He also hosted a show for Fox affiliates back in 2019.

The actor would join Sheryl Underwood, Amanda Kloots and Elaine Welteroth as the series regulars.  Carrie Ann Inaba has taken a leave of absence from the talk show.

So, what do you think of O’Connell becoming a regular component of the hosts of The Talk? Comment below.

Sliders was a great show. Sad to see Jerry’s fallen so far since then that he had to take this gig.

No. I believe this is a bad move. For me this man is just too high energy.

This guy is just desperate! He’s been guest host of every talk show imaginable and still hasn’t landed a gig. He’s not funny and a bore. Take a hint, Jerry! Give it up!

Jerry LIKES being a guest host. HE has turned down offers to be a regular host on several talk shows.

As far as I’m concerned, he peaked in 1986 in the classic “Stand By Me”. His Vern was often the butt of jokes, but O’Connell brought a poignance to the character. In person, he’s just too much, as others have said. But he will be competition for the equally loud Ms. Underwood.

Oh big whoop!
Those magpies will eat him up. When he’s through, he won’t even remember his name!
