Marinelli in a statement related ,”Katie is the No. 1 new syndicated talk show of the 2012-13 season, and we are thrilled to announce a green light for Season Two. Katie is an immensely talented host who has an incomparable ability to connect with her viewers. We also have outstanding station partners and time periods, and look forward to continued success with Katie this year and into Season Two.”

Katie Couric added, “Hosting, producing and launching a show from scratch has been challenging but very rewarding. I’m looking forward to working with our terrific team to build on the success of our first season, and continuing to share compelling stories, explore important topics, and create entertaining television for our audience.”

WHY? Oh wait. It’s ABC. They don’t know what’s good if it hit them in the face? Aside from GH and Revenge, ABC is a snooze.

I was hoping to read “Katie Couric show canceled!”

Me, too. I have never watched a second of it & never will.

Amen to that!!


who actually watches this show?…………I wish I can find someone in my circle or
co-workers that watch Katie……….

I just do not care, ABC has burned me bad.

GH is my only ABC show I watch.

I don’t know what ABC is smoking but Katie is not a hit show. Steve Harvey got a people’s choice, I don’t think Katie did. Let’s face it, ABC is not going to admit they are wrong in taking AMC or OLTL to move GH.

I watched the first episode out of curiosity and I didn’t even finish it since I was bored.

I don’t have a problem with it.She’s an awesome journalist and it’s not her fault ABC cancelled AMC and OLTL.

Completely agree!!!! I actually like her current event stories. I won’t make her pay for Brian Frons and ABC’s screw up.

Her show is a bore.

I agree

Even Anderson was better, and that was cancelled

“…an incomparable ability to connect with her viewers…” Seriously?

she needs to do everyone a favor and leave the tv landscape.

I hardly watch talk shows and some of those so called reality shows especially that vulgar Jersy Shore. If J.S. was truly real it seems to me they would have either killed each other by now or b on one of those court shows.(i no its a primetime show but it does air repeats early in the day) NOW a few talk shows are harmless but i rather watch my soaps. When i want the real world ill watch a talk show or the news or turn my tv off and just step outside my front door. But sometimes i need at least 30 min. to an hour a day to escape the insanity of the real world and the soaps, no matter how much their insane but still entertaining stories can be most of the time,allows me that escapism i need. Im just glad that this soap turnaround and higher ratings prove to those who thought that the soaps were as dead as a dinasour that they were wrong and that us viewers were right: We do want our soaps!

Won’t watch ever………..dislike Katie…….its waste of time!!

It will be cancelled next year. ABC has to try and save what is left of its face. Fact is Katie has not been the number one new talk show consistently. Steve Harvey has bested her a couple of times. She can not retain the lead she gets from GH so they have to give her one more year before they pull the plug and really start licking their wounds when they see the numbers AMC and OLTL will be pulling in on the internet!! Hey Brian Frons, how is your job at ABC going…oh wait you were FIRED!!

She does has experience in interviewing politicians. So I think next year her show will do better. As for right now, it seems like she does better with news stories than with celebrities.

‘The Talk’ Renewed For 15th and Final Season to End in December; Does Its Cancellation Make Room for ‘The Gates’?

Things just got very interesting over at CBS daytime with the announcement today that The Talk is going to end its run on the network after its 15th season, and that season looks to be shortened as the series will come to its conclusion in December of 2024.

In a joint statement, Amy Reisenbach, President, CBS Entertainment and David Stapf, President, CBS Studio, shared, “The Talk broke new ground when it launched 14 years ago by returning daytime talk to CBS with a refreshing and award-winning format. Throughout the years, it has been a key program on CBS’ top rated daytime line-up as it brought timely, important and entertaining topics and discussions into living rooms around the globe.”

Reisenback and Stapf added, “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.

Giving props to those who co-hosted or worked on the show through the years including: Sara Gilbert, Julie Chen Moonves, Carrie Ann Inaba Leah Ramimi, Marissa Janet Winokur, Holly Robinson Peete, Eve, Aisha Tyler, and Sharon Osbourne, the joint statement added, “We also want to acknowledge our former show hosts and colleagues who contributed throughout the seasons. 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.”

While no firm decision or announcement has been given at this time, it seems most likely that The Talk’s time slot could be given to the new soap opera in development The Gates from CBS Studio Ventures and from longtime soap opera writer. Michele Val Jean.  As previously reported, The Gates features the lives of a wealthy Black family who reside in a posh, gated community.

The Talk was originally the brainchild of Sara Gilbert, who had developed the show when it launched back 2010 and it replaced the beloved As the World Turns which went off the air after 54 years when CBS canceled it.

So, what do you think of The Talk being canceled? Will this make room for The Gates to begin to air in its spot beginning in 2025? Share your reactions to the news via the comment section.
