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.

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 »

And you know, I met my wife there obviously, had kids, became a young man on that show, and we got the opportunity to reboot the primetime version and the idea was brought to us, and we’re so excited.  Of all the things that we’ve ever announced that we’re going to do, this is one of the biggest responses we’ve got from our fans. They’re so excited.  It’s a big piece of TV that’s been missing for such a long time, and we’re going to bring it back.”

When avid soap fan and The Talk co-host, Sheryl Underwood, posed a major question to Consuelos that has been on longtime All My Children fans minds, she got a solid response from him.

Sheryl was trying to get some tea on who might appear in the reboot, when she asked, “Is it going to be the Cortlandts and the Warners? Is it going to be everybody?” Consuelos then responded with: “I know they’re going to bring back some fan favorites, and it will take place in Pine Valley, and I’m really, really excited.”

Lexi Ainsworth Teases Her Return to General Hospital

With her father Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard) presumed dead (although viewers know he is very much alive with amnesia), it looks like Kristina is on her way back to Port Charles – which would be a welcome return to the role for Daytime Emmy winner Lexi Ainsworth.

Rumors began circulating on Inauguration day Wednesday, when Ainsworth shared a pic on her Instagram Story of her watching the ceremonies from a dressing room at Prospect Studios in Los Angeles, where GH is taped.

Later, after reports had surfaced on social media that Ainsworth might be returning to her signature role, the actress shared some of those on her Instagram Story as well, which was seen as her way of confirming she is back on the show.

Lexi has been recurring on General Hospital for the last several years, so there is no telling how long she will be on-screen this time.

While there has been no official confirmation from GH, chances are that if there is a funeral ahead for Sonny, Kristina of course would be there to mourn her father. Stay tuned.

So, excited that Lexi will be back on-air on GH? Comment below.
