REPORT: Carrie Ann Inaba to be Replaced by a Male Co-Host on ‘The Talk’

Photo: JPI

The ever-changing face of CBS Daytime’s, The Talk continues.  Now comes a report from Page Six, that the series is looking for yet another male co-host, and this time to replace Carrie Ann Inaba, who has been on an extended leave of absence from the show.

If another male co-host becomes part of the cast, that would mean the once all-female dominated talker, will now have Jerry O’Connell, who was recently made a permanent co-host and whomever the next man up would be.

According to Page Six sources: “They haven’t announced it, but Carrie Ann is not returning, and they’ve been trying out comics and athletes to take her place.”

Back in April, Inaba, who also is one of the celebrity judges every season on ABC’s Dancing with the Stars, took a leave from the show citing her health as the reason for her exit.  That came after Sharon Osbourne’s explosive and controversial on-air moment in March with Sheryl Underwood, and the fallout afterwards that developed, which insiders say did not sit well with Carrie Ann.

In June, when word got out that The Talk would live on post-Osbourne, Carrie Ann sent her congrats to the cast and the show and thanked everyone who worked there following the announcement that CBS picked-up the series for a 12th season.

So, who do you think would be a good male co-host to join The Talk? Do you hope Carrie Ann somehow returns, even though it looks  doubtful she would? Comment below.

OK, this is what I have to say about all this

Whatever Carrie Anne’s reason is for leaving, bringing another man on is NOT the way to go!!
I thought Jerry O’Connell could be a good addition to the show, but…sorry, he is a disaster!!!
Jerry doesn’t know the first thing about interviewing a guest! I am embarrassed for him!!

The time has come to pull the plug an this “fest” Along with THE VIEW, this show is no longer relevant!
Pull. The. Plug!!

Why you ask? Because that would be a step backwards. I would think most women would not want to go back to the 1950’s MadMen days when they took a back seat to men as there secretaries, girl Fridays or submissive housewife. It’s a slippery slope for women to let there guard down now when it comes to their rights that they have worked so hard to obtain. Just a few days ago a new law was signed in Texas that took away a woman’s right to make decisions about her own body. I have read studies show that counties… Read more »

I don’t know how you can say the View is not relevant. They demonstrate what a relevant show is. Every day includes current political issues. The Talk never did that.

The reason Sarah was on the show is because she created it & is some big important producer or director or whatever.

This so call the talk is a bunch of selfish women & men who only want to talk about themselves.And any monkey can host that show look at sherly she a complete sick individual always in heat when a man goes on the show,it makes them looks ridiculously.
Along with the topics that are
Not even interesting.So they might as well cancel this show.As they do not have a fan base as no body wants to watch ppl who are bullies.

This show is truly not what it used to be. I miss the panel with Julie, Aisha, Sharon and Sara. I also liked Marie Osmond and I’m disappointed that Carrie Ann is leaving. Elaine and Amanda are boring co-hosts, and I don’t like the fact that Sheryl is now the de-facto moderator. Whoever they bring in next better be a big name if the show has any hope of a ratings spike, which it desperately needs.

Judith A Chisholm

I agree with Jimmy. I have stopped watching this show. CBS has gone to far. Has no one there heard of freedom of speech. Just because you disagree with someones point of view doesn’t mean you should get rid of them. CBS has been doing this over and over again starting with Julie. As for Jerry O’Connell he acts like a big kid instead of an adult. Can’t stand that in a man.

I did not like particularly like Sharon Osbourne, but I have not enjoyed watching the show since her departure. I think Carrie Ann Inaba did a good job; she was articulate and demonstrated a good mix of humor and intelligence. Jerry O’Connell does nothing for me at all and I haven’t really been wowed by any of the other male co-hosts that they have been auditioning. I have gone back to watching GH at 2:00 despite having watched The Talk consistently prior to the fallout

Carolyn Grissett

I do not like Jerry O’Connell. He brings absolutely nothing too the show. Sheryl Underwood needs to go also. She does nothing for the show. Do not like her. I still watch the show. I like Amanda. She’s good. Elaine, I am still not too sure about her.

Glad Carrie Ann isn’t coming back,because what escalated during that episode was a disgrace! Those other three ladies need to go. There proformance and insight on topics are boring!

I have enjoyed The Talk sometimes over the years and sometimes not, depending on the topic. I have always had a neutral stance on the women that have been hosts on the show. After the ugliness of the situation earlier in the year, I agree with the decision to let Sharon go. I have enjoyed the show’s substitution with male hosts. I’m glad that they have made the decision to bring a male host to the show on a permanent basis. It brings a different view and opinion. I would have picked someone other than Jerry O’Connell though…

I don’t watch the show any longer. I don’t like Jerry as a co-host. I think he is a mess. The show is not the same as it was in the beginning. Boring and too controversial. Everything comes down to race and politics. Following in the views footsteps

Bring back Leah Remini she has a big mouth and would probably cause controversy (ie ratings). Sharon Osbourne bugs me.

Carrie was by far the best of the remaining hosts. She was articulate and in control of her emotions. I didn’t realize the show was still on this summer so I don’t have a current opinion regarding Jerry, but I have seen him on previous shows and I can’t imagine he’s a good fit. I had watched this show since day one. It was a huge loss when Sara left, but I grew to enjoy Eve. Aisha was fine. My least favorite has always been Sheryl. She’s not a bad person, but we don’t share many of the same opinions.… Read more »

Ugh! No more men! Jerry O’Connell gives me hives, he’s so bad! I’m sorry Carrie Ann won’t be back. She was a breath of fresh air. There isn’t a single man they’ve tried out that has done really well. Either get a couple of women with brains and personality, or pull the plug!

The Talk was something I really liked watching. I liked the idea that there were different generations of ladies. I really miss Sharon Osborn and think she got a raw deal. Sheryl got her way. I don’t like the idea of a male on the panel. This show is watched mainly by women and their point of view. There is only one woman on there now that I like and I can’t remember her name. It is not Sheryl or the blond lady and certainly not Jerry. All the ladies from the earlier shows did a great job. I will… Read more »

The show direction is awful, I boycotted it several months ago, It’s dying, Sheryl was the worse of all the original host. I remember commenting how demoralizing she was to male guest by making sexual innuendos, especially when there was big backlashes happening regarding producers, and female entertainers/actresses etc…Yet the network continued to allow Sheryl to act this way, so when someone than acts or says something offensive, she cries she was traumatized…Sheryl you traumatized me with your demeaning acts against male guess…but thats ok…The show is baseless, and viewers lost trust in getting un bias information get rid of… Read more »

Carrie Ann Inaba Officially Departs ‘The Talk’

In an announcement on her Instagram and in an official statement, Carrie Ann Inaba has officially exited The Talk.  As we previously reported earlier in the week, the talk series was reportedly already looking for a male replacement for her.

Inaba was a featured co-host on The Talk for three seasons having officially replaced Julie Chen Moonves in 2019, after guest hosting since 2017.  But since April of this year, Carrie Ann has been on a leave of absence from the afternoon show.

In her exit statement, Carrie Ann shared: “I enjoyed my time at The Talk as co-host and moderator and I am grateful for the opportunity I had to grow with the entire Talk family as well as truly connect with viewers on such a personal level. I will miss The Talk, but I am excited for the next chapter both for myself and for the show.”’

Carrie Ann’s departure is said to be a mutual decision between her and the network.

On Instagram, Inaba shared: “I am filled with immense gratitude for my journey on @thetalkcbs. It has been a wonderful experience and an honor to have been the moderator at The Talk, following in the footsteps of two women I very much respect. @juliechenmoonves and @thesaragilbert. Dreams do come true, if you work hard for them. I have made beautiful and lifelong friendships, I’ve had so many unforgettable experiences, (be prepared for a few memories shared in the next few days), and I’ve learned so much from all the heartfelt and authentic discussions we’ve shared with you. My heart is full and content. I’m truly grateful for all that was, all that is (life is in perfection), and all that will be. To all my friends and family at @thetalkcbs I wish you a great Season ahead! And, I also very much look forward to my own future as well. 💕✨🌅 Life is good. And endings can be as beautiful as beginnings. ✨”

Inaba will continue on in September in her judges seat on the all-new season of ABC’s Dancing with the Stars.

So, sad that Inaba is officially OUT at The Talk? Comment below.
