THE TALK Bests THE VIEW For The First Time In Total Viewers!

CBS Daytime‘s The Talk outdrew ABC’s morning gabfest The View for the first time in the history of the afternoon series!

Amidst the changing and pending landscape of the co-host chairs of ABC’s long running series, the five-year-old CBS talk show edged ahead in total viewers, 2.95 million to 2.88 million, according to Nielsen estimates for the week of January 5th through January 9th making its the largest audience for The Talk  since February 2013!

The Talk, moderated by Julie Chen with co-hosts, Sharon Osbourne, Aisha Tyler, Sara Gilbert and Sheryl Underwood had previously beaten The View in demos, but this is the first time its original episodes have been more popular overall.  Last week, the shows tied in both women 18-49 (0.7 rating) and women 25-54 (1.0)

Clearly The Talk, with its take on the pop culture news of the day, topical guests, entertaining segments and host banter that clicks and is fun, irreverent, and at times poignant, is becoming the must-see talk series in the day-part.

So, which do you think is the better talker, The View or The Talk?  Comment below!

I don’t watch either show, but I’m not surprised. The few times I’ve caught a bit of The Talk, it was far and away better than the shrieking loons on The View. The View is like nails on a chalkboard to me. I love news and current events, just not in that format or with those hosts. Time for The View to go!

The Talk is much better. I cannot watch The View because I cannot connect with the hosts. They seem to have fun on The Talk unlike The View.

The TALK is a cheap imitation. I have no interest in anything the women of that show have to say since none of them are very accomplished. The VIEW is making adjustments that are taking a little time to get just right.

Julie Chen is a news anchor and producer at CBS. She has been in the business for a long time and has very impressive “credentials.” Sara Gilbert is an actress and also a producer. Sharon, Aisha and Cheryl have all been in the entertainment business for quite a while…and together they make a very lively, non confrontational, non political, non racist panel…all unlike The View.

I much prefer The Talk to The View – far less ego.

Well-deserved. The Talk has really grown on me. It’s a lighter, much more pleasant show than The View. Honestly, The View has run it’s course and has become unwatchable, IMO.

I love Whoopi, but her other hosts are not as engaging as the Talk. I really like it better. They all seem genuine and respectful of each other.

I still miss ATWT. One of my favourites, and no amount of daytime love this show has for the genre can replace it.

They should have left Bill Geddie in charge. This is not a hard news show. The segments are terrible. The big guest stars are sitting with one or two of the hosts unlike before where they were all sitting there. They had a couch that looked more comfortable than the stools. They spend too much time on what used to be “hot topics”. I’m betting 2 of the 4 are gone by the end of the season.

I watch The Talk, but only when there’s a guest that I like, about once a month including this week with Patrick Stewart. Everytime I watch, I do like the show and don’t feel at the end like I wasted my time or with disgust like when I infrequently watch The View.

They are both horrible. I just do not understand why anyone with a brain watches them. What a waste of air time!

I’ve never watched the talk in retaliation for cancelling ATWT.

That’s so funny, Shelly.
I do not watch THE TALK because of one phony Brit. She is not who she presents herself to be on screen. Think back, people. She had a reality show a few years ago. I was very young, but I remember it clearly. Trashy, foul-mouthed and crass, that’s what stayed with me….and, the show put the family on the map. This bunch has suddenly become pious. Ha! Now, we are to believe that a London urchin has ‘bought’ some class? ‘N’uff said’.

I’ve watched The Talk since it premiered, manly because of Sara Gilbert. I’ve watched the View off & on for many years. IMO they are different shows even though at a glance, they have a very similar look. I still miss the days when Meredith Vieira was on The View, but it remained somewhat relevant up until a couple of years ago. It is a mess right now. I DVR both shows, but rarely watch more than the first 20 minutes of either anymore. I still find Sara Gilbert’s self deprecating attitude amusing and I appreciate her honesty. At the… Read more »

‘The Talk’ Returns as Sheryl Underwood Shares the ‘Trauma’ She Feels Over Incident That Led to Sharon Osbourne’s Exit

CBS’ afternoon series The Talk finally returned to the air, following the departure of Sharon Osbourne and the tense moments that went down on the March 10th episode between her and Sheryl Underwood.

Monday afternoon, co-hosts: Sheryl Underwood, Elaine Welteroth, Amanda Kloots and Carrie Ann Inaba along with diversity and inclusion expert, Donald E. Grant, were on the episode.  Grant, served as the moderator as the women discussed what happened when Osbourne came at Underwood when defending Piers Morgan’s remarks about Meghan Markle, eventually prompting an extended internal investigation by CBS.

On today’s episode, Sheryl Underwood shared: “I didn’t want to escalate things with Sharon, because I thought I was having a conversation with a friend, but also, I knew I had to be an example for others to follow. I didn’t want to be perceived as that ‘angry Black woman’, and that really scared me. I didn’t want to be that and I wanted to remain calm and focused. It’s difficult to go back to that day because I just feel the trauma. I feel fearful, a little apprehensive.”

Elaine Welteroth added, “When you go back and watch what happened in that episode, you will see two Black women walking the same tightrope that Black women are walking every single day in the workplace.  As Sheryl said, we knew we had to stay composed in that situation, even in the face of someone who was A, not listening, and B, who went off the rails into disrespect when we were maintaining our respect within the context of this very complex, charged, emotional conversation.  There have been a lot of false narratives that have been spun in the aftermath of what happened on that episode…this is the first time that I have had the opportunity to speak. And I think it’s really important that we have the opportunity to say that the false accusations that are swirling in the press that frame Sheryl and I as some kind of, you know, people who attacked a woman on air, and were part of some sort of, you know, conspiracy, that is absolutely, categorically false.”

She later added, “I just want to acknowledge you, Sheryl, on air for how you handled the situation. I think it’s important for people to really know the strength and willpower it takes to maintain that kind of composure in that situation. And I think for me, I was just really entering that conversation with the hope of finding a common ground and I didn’t feel like I was heard.”

In addition, Underwood wanted to go on record stating that while she had received text messages from Osbourne, she hadn’t replied to them because she wasn’t sure she was supposed to during during an internal investigation. Osbourne had said that she sent texts to Underwood and had apologized for her actions.

Sheryl shared: “I have never been through something like this. I didn’t know whether you were supposed to communicate or not communicate.  I have not spoken to Sharon, I haven’t had a phone call from her, ” However, Underwood expressed that if a friend were to come up to her and greet her nicely, she would do that same, “When you’re friends with someone, you stay friends,” she said.

So, what did you think about the sentiments shared by Sheryl and Elaine during The Talk? Was this episode helpful in shining a lot on racism, and successful in dealing with what transpired on March 10th with Sharon Osbourne? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
