BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. — CBS offered a look at its new daytime talk show this week at the TV critics’ press tour, but the show, now titled “The Talk,” should not be confused with ABC’s “The View” despite its all-female lineup. “In the same way that David Letterman or Jay Leno sit at a desk, there are formats people use in talk shows, too,” said executive producer Sara Gilbert (“Roseanne”). She said the idea came to her after she became a mother, and “was overwhelmed. I went to a mom group and thought, ‘Wow, moms really need this kind of support.” Gilbert has had two children with her partner, Allison Adler.
“The Talk” — airdate TBA — will be hosted by Gilbert, Holly Robinson Peete, Sharon Osbourne, Leah Remini, Marissa Jaret Winokur and “Early Show”/”Big Brother” host Julie Chen, who’s also married to CBS chief executive Leslie Moonves. Chen said the show “should feel like six women are talking about something that everyone else is talking about.”
