The Talk to End in December After Fifteen-Season Run

In a rare shakeup to the networks' daytime lineup, CBS has announced that their long-running afternoon chat show The Talk will end in December 2024, after fifteen seasons. The show first premiered in 2010, after soap opera As the World Turns was canceled following a run of more than fifty years. In the years since, the show has been a reliable fixture of CBS's daytime lineup. Trouble seemed to be brewing for the show after reports that CBS was developing a new hour-long soap opera, The Gates. The show had been one of the lower-rated shows on daytime TV, consistently placing outside of the top ten in the daytime broadcast ratings, and trailing similar panel talk shows such as ABC's The View. Over the years, The Talk has featured hosts Sara Gilbert, Sharon Osbourne, Julie Chen, Aisha Tyler and Carrie Ann Inaba as regular panelists, with  Sheryl Underwood (the show's longest-running host), Natalie Morales, Jerry O'Connell, Amanda Loots and Akbar Gbajabiamila making up the show's current panel.
