Osbourne’s chat show picked up for second season

The hour-long daytime talk show, co-hosted by the rock matriarch, newswoman Julie Chen, and actresses Leah Remini, Holly Robinson Peete and Sara Gilbert, features the all-female panel discussing current events and parental issues.

And it’s proved to be such a big hit with TV viewers, CBS executives have commissioned it for another season following its October (10) premiere.

CBS Entertainment President Nina Tassler says: “After only a few months on the air, The Talk has delivered creative and ratings growth and established a strong profile in daytime. The co-hosts have clicked together, the topics have connected with the audience and the show has added a new dimension to our top-rated daytime line-up.”

The Talk’s renewal follows the departure of correspondent Marissa Jaret Winokur, who left last month (Dec10) over a lack of screen time.
