It is strange when you work from home, certain shows draw you in sometimes just by being background noise. The one thing I like about this show is that it is a group of mown who are not angry, but always being supportive of each other. Other formatted shows could learn from their example. I was not happy that CBS tool “As the World Turns” off for this show, but the show proved itself as being a great help to people who need to hear that they are not alone, whether you are male or female, gay or straight, black, white or Asian.

I think Sara has done a great job as a moderator since Julie Chen left the show. There have many guest panelists that would be a great fit to take her place, most recently, Marie Osmond. I ma not sure a daily dose of Carnie Wilson would be a great thing for the show. But whomever is chosen, best of luck to them and the show.

A big reason these panel talk shows work is the chemistry between the different members- the show hit on its winning combo season 2, with Sara, Sharon, Julie, Sheryl and Alisha–as each of these ladies leave, the show will follow in the View’s footstep and never really recover the magic that made it a success in first place.

I began watching The Talk because of Sara Gilbert and stuck with it because of Sara. She’s witty, thoughtful, and rational. I adore her! The past several months she has shown a different level of comfort which will only make me miss her all the more. I like most of the current group, but Sara is the reason I watch so I’m not sure I’ll stick with the show. While Sharon makes me laugh, it was the balance of Sara’s comments that made Sharons outrageous remarks work. I like Eve, and Carrie has been a great addition, but they don’t draw me in the way that Sara does. A rotating guest host might be best for awhile? I always like when Carnie Wilson is there, but more as a fill in or perhaps a replacement for Sheryl. Count me out if Marie Osmond is selected. I need someone who is much more authentic. (Which is why I was never a Julie Chen fan.) I don’t have the replacement solution, but authenticity is imperative.

EMPIRE’s Final Season Cut Short Due To COVID-19; Series Finale Now Set For April 21

Will we now ever know just how the lives of Empire’s Lucious  (Terrence Howard) and Cookie Lyon (Taraji P. Henson) and their dysfunctional family will resolve now that the series has had to scrap two of their planned episodes in their final season?  The sixth and final season was scheduled to run for a total of 20 episodes.

However, due to the coronavirus pandemic, the production shutdown left them with only 18 episodes tht could be completed.

That means, as first announced during last night’s episode of Empire via voice-over: “Get ready for the shocking final three episodes of ‘Empire,’”  that reveal let viewers of Empire know there was change in plans.”  Now, the shortened season and series finale end on FOX on April 21st.

Reports also note that episode 19 was partially shot and that footage of that unfinished episode will be cut into the finale.

As to what happens with the character of Jamal Lyon played by Jussie Smollett, who everyone knows ran into significant trouble with the law; on last reports executives said he would not be back for the final episodes of the series, although there has still have been mentions of the character throughout season 6.

47th Annual Daytime Emmy Ceremonies Canceled Due To Coronavirus Pandemic

There won’t be any “And the Enmy goes to _” come this June, where NATAS had originally scheduled three nights of award presentations honoring the best in daytime programming at the 47th Annual Daytime Emmys.   The three-day event was slated for June 12-14th, at the Pasadena Civic Auditorium in Pasadena. California.  Deadline broke the story of the decision to postpone daytime’s biggest night, for now.

NATAS president and CEO Adam Sharp said of today’s decision: “These were extremely difficult decisions to make, but at the end of the day the health and safety of our event attendees and staff must remain our paramount concern,” NATAS president and CEO Adam Sharp said of today’s decision. “We are closely monitoring public heath authorities’ guidance, seeking feedback from our awards communities, and evaluating the flexibility of our venue and production partners as we plan for the future in this unprecedented context.”

 NATAS chairman Terry O’Reilly said on the change” “Given our concerns over the COVID-19 pandemic, we have decided that we will not be staging the 47th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards in Pasadena this coming June.  As there are so many unknowns right now with the flow of information changing on a daily, almost hourly, basis, it would simply be irresponsible to move forward with our annual celebration of excellence in daytime television at this time.”
