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,… Read more »

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… Read more »
