Last week as Julie Chen, Aisha Tyler, Sara Gilbert, Sheryl Underwood and Sharon Osbourne each revealed a never-before-known secret to the audience and to each other on the season four premiere of The Talk, the series was cleaning up in the ratings department! In fact, the CBS afternoon talker delivered it’s  largest weekly audience ever, according to Nielsen live plus same day ratings for the week ending September 15th!

 The Talk averaged 2.80 million viewers, up +20% over last year’s premiere audience of 2.33 million viewers.  Among women 25-54,  The Talk averaged 1.2/08, also up +20% over last year’s 1.0/06 and matching its all-time high in the demo.

And according to the Hollywood Reporter,  “This is the closest The Talk‘s audience has ever come to its main competitor, The View.  The momentum of The Talk‘s growth during such a pivotal year for The View should prove to be one of the more interesting daytime ratings stories over the 2013-14 season. ”

So after watching season four premiere of The Talk, or if you just watched our video clip coverage of the reveal of the co-hosts secrets which one touched you the most?  Aisha Tyler’s fertility struggles?  Julie Chen’s eye surgery to look less Asian?  Sara Gilbert’s story of dating then co-star Johnny Galecki and telling him she was gay, and living with the secret?  Sharon Osbourne having a fling with Jay Leno? Or Sheryl Underwood admitting her twin had died shortly after birth, and that her mother stabbed her father?  Comment below!

I will take the secrets of the Hugheses, Snyders, Walshes and others in Oakdale (AS THE WORLD TURNS) any day over these ratings-grab confessions, thank you.

I still miss ATWT, and I know I am not alone.

You are not alone Iakovos. Cheap programming, the Talk, and to think this replaced a classic show such as ATWT. Sad, sad.

LOL the talk needed to prostitute the private lives of the hosts for ratings, so sad..

The only way this show has picked up viewers is if they’re forcing lifers in prison to watch it. Or it it’s turned on in airport lounges with no option to change the channel and no ability to crack the screen.

Absolute crud, with a group of hosts for whom that seem to come naturally.

The talk should do this secrets week regularly. Maybe they can convince guest hosts to reveal the same. Lots of frank discussions from secrets week. Best revelation goes to julie chen. Her revelation was not melodramatic like it is on sudsers. Julie chen’s revelation was relevant bec it touched on a lot of issues. Pressures of mainstream media’s narrow definition of beauty. Plastic surgery not for vanity but for a woman’s career growth. Tension between racial minority’s cultural identity and demands for career growth. Racism towards Asian americans w/c was very relevant given miss america racism and newest tv show… Read more »

The talk’s panel consists of 2 African american women and lesbian woman who’s white and a british foreigner who’s white and an Asian american woman. But it’s Asian american personality julie chen who is getting the most press from the talk’s revelations week. Julie’s revelation obviously contributed the most to bringing the talk’s highest ratings and bringing press for herself and for the talk. The topic of racism towards Asian americans brought the talk its highest ratings and coveted press. Yet “progressive/liberal” hollywood refuses to cast more Asian americans w/ quality roles on tv shows. But Asian american actors get… Read more »

Michael B. Jordan Recalls His Acting Start as All My Children’s Reggie in SNL Opening Monologue

Last night, Michael B. Jordan hosted Saturday Night Live.  The Creed star, who is the director of the upcoming Creed III due out in March, took to the stage to deliver his opening monologue, and right off the top he mentioned his beginnings as All My Children’s Reggie.

Jordan portrayed Reggie from 2003-2006 on the ABC soap opera (his character was eventually adopted by Jack Montgomery).

When Michael hit the stage, he shared: “Yesterday, I had a crazy full-circle moment. We pre-shot some videos for the show and when I got to the studio I realized it was the exact same place where I shot one of my first acting roles on the soap opera All My Children.

He then tossed to a clip of his 16-year-old self in which Reggie says, “sometimes the animal in me gets kind of crazy” and then howls life a wolf at the end of the scene. Back to the SNL stage, Jordan said mockingly, “I’m pretty sure I hit puberty mid-howl.”

Jordan ended his monologue by looping it back to his early acting days on AMC, sharing: “I just want to say, I’m so grateful to be standing on this stage. Sometimes, I can take myself a little too seriously but tonight, I’m going to have fun, I’m just going to go for it. And maybe, just maybe let the inner animal get a little crazy.”

Watch Michael’s opening monologue below.  Then let us know, what did you think of the the AMC Reggie clip reference? Do you recall Michael’s days on the ABC daytime drama series? Comment below.

Stause, who is one of the mainstays of the Netflix reality series, Selling Sunset, comes back to her old stomping grounds at DAYS just as Kayla (Mary Beth Evans), Marlena (Deidre Hall) and Kate have ‘died’ and have all landed in this white space which looks to be heaven, but really is hell in disguise, especially given Marlena’s latest visit with Susan Banks (Stacy Haiduk), who seemingly reveals herself to be possessed by Satan.
