Watch The Talk

"The Talk", a daily talk show that airs at 2 pm on CBS, has become a source of inspiration, entertainment, and information for many people across the world. Viewers tune in to watch their favorite well-known celebrities talk about the news, controversial issues, and other topics. The structure of the show exists as an open discussion between co-hosts Julie Chen, Aisha Tyler, Sara Gilbert, Sharon Osbourne, and Sheryl Underwood. Various topics include everything from recent political events to fashion. While the subject matter varies, the purpose is always to explore various show topics from a maternal perspective. This is largely due in part to the fact that all five co-hosts are mothers. Whether interviewing a celebrity or talking about recent events, viewers can expect to learn about the subject taken from a woman's or motherly point of view. This approach makes the show popular among housewives and women in the 25 to 54 age cohort. The premise of the show exists as a large roundtable that seats each celebrity in front of a live studio audience. While the majority of the discussions exist between the co-hosts, it is not unusual to encourage participation from the audience. Viewers tune in because of the informal vibe of the show; they feel like the chit-chat exchanged between the famous women is similar to a conversation they could have with co-workers the next day or on the phone with their girlfriends. For almost two years now, "The Talk" has captivated audiences with their unique approach to the news and important topics of the day. Whether tuning in to see new trends in maternal clothing or a favorite celebrity, the show attracts a lot of viewers because of the connection they feel to the female co-hosts. Recently, the show was nominated for three daytime Emmys and continues to air on CBS in the 2pm time slot.

Holly Robinson Peete Gets Booted From 'The Talk'

Two Wrongs: Sharon Osborne Grills Larry King on Sex (Watch the VIDEO)

Warning: unpleasant imagery approaching.

Larry King stopped by “The Talk” to chitchat with the ladies over bagels and a side of sexual inquiry.

While breaking bread, Sharon Osborne bit the bat on the head – so to speak – and took direct aim.

"Your wives have been historically beautiful, young," she said. "Have you ever had sex with a woman my age?" the 58-year-old asked.
