It was a slam dunk across the board for CBS Daytime as the network’s entire lineup hit ratings milestones for the week ending February 2, according to Nielsen. CBS Daytime averaged 4.79 million viewers, its largest weekly viewership since the week …
The View is heading to the Magical Kingdom for the November sweep, in hopes of widening its lead over CBS’ The Talk. Mickey Mouse himself made the announcement this morning on The View which is a program of Disney-owned ABC. It’s the first time The View has had to go to Disneyland – the place ABC shows go to goose their ratings. The daytime talker will broadcast live from Disneyland to coincide with Mickey Mouse’s 85th birthday on November 18. ABC’s late night star Jimmy Kimmel, who’s been getting lots of attention these days as he ratchets up to take on new Tonight show competition this season, with fake YouTube Failed-Twerk videos, verbal brawls/hug-it-outs with Kanye West, etc , will be the lead guest of The Ladies of The View for that Disneyland week, appearing on Mickey’s birthday.
CBS Renews Entire Daytime Lineup, Including ‘Bold & Beautiful’, ‘The Talk’, ‘Price Is Right’ And ‘Let’s Make A Deal’
CBS‘ daytime lineup will return intact next season. The network has renewed soap The Bold And The Beautiful, talk show The Talk and game shows The Price Is Right and Let’s Make A Deal. They join top-rated daytime drama The Young And The Restless, which has a multi-year pickup. “Over the past few years, we have successfully transitioned our daytime schedule to a balance of program genres with new creative energy, while maintaining our ratings leadership,” said CBS Entertainment president Nina Tassler.
Just renewed The Bold And The Beautiful, The Talk, The Price Is Right and Let’s Make A Deal have all posted year-to-year ratings increases. Here are the stats:
Author Angela Wilder has sued the network, the companies and some head executives alleging that her idea for a talk show based on motherhood was the real inspiration for the CBS daytime series. “It’s one thing to get sued over a project that was pitched to us, but quite a stretch to be sued over a pitch that was made to somebody else. Ms. Wilder’s alleged offering to Sony played absolutely no part in the creation of The Talk. We’ll vigorously defend this case and expect to prevail,” said CBS today. Sara Gilbert, Sharon Osbourne, Sheryl Underwood, Aisha Tyler and Big Brother host Julie Chen co-host the CBS Television Studios and RelativityREAL produced show. CBS has always said that The Talk, which debuted in October 2010, is based on an idea by Gilbert. The Powerful Mate Syndrome author obviously disagrees. However, as made clear from the seven-count suit she filed on October 17, Wilder never actually met with anyone from either CBS or Relativity – though both are named among the defendants.
Today was a big day in daytime as a slew of talk shows premiered, including three new talk shows: Katie, Jeff Probst and Ricki Lake. We’ll have to wait until tomorrow to see how they all did in the ratings, but in the stunt department, it was the season premiere of …

Sharon Osbourne, on hand to represent The Talk during a TCA panel today for CBS’ daytime shows, revealed she has not been formally asked to return as a judge on NBC’s summer hit America’s Got Talent. “They’ve asked Howard [Stern] back,” she said. “They haven’t asked me back. Who knows?” During the panel session held on the Price Is Right Stage at CBS Television City, Osbourne was asked about her tweet last week that suggested she would be leaving her other job as a judge on Talent. “You know, with the greatest respect to everyone here, we are here to talk about the No. 1 network in the world, that is CBS,” she said. “It’s not appropriate at this time.” But afterward, she was asked whether she would come back to Talent if asked. “I don’t know, six years is a long time to be on any show,” she replied. “I have to think about me and what I want to do. I’m so fuckin’ old — I don’t know.”
CBS has renewed daytime talk show The Talk for the 2012-13 season. The daily talker — hosted by Julie Chen, Sara Gilbert, Sharon Osbourne, Sheryl Underwood and Aisha Tyler — will return for its third year in September. “We are thrilled with the evolution and growth of The Talk,” said Nina Tassler, President, CBS Entertainment. After a slew of major changes on the show in front and behind the camera last year, including the exits of co-hosts Leah Remini and Holly Robinson Peete, things have been quiet on the personnel front for the last several months. Nationally, the second season of The Talk is averaging 2.16 million viewers, 1.0/6 in women 25-54 and 0.8 in women 18-49. A month ago it posted its largest audience, 2.45 million viewers, for the week ending Jan. 27.

‘The Talk’ Adds Kris Jenner As Host (As If Kardashians Aren’t Already Over-Exposed) & Conservative Comic Sheryl Underwood
EXCLUSIVE… UPDATE: What in the world is CBS thinking? The network is going to announce shortly that Kris Jenner, the insufferable manager mom of those incredibly annoying Kardashian sisters, is the new fill-in host on The Talk. (Don’t these people have enough money for doing nothing already? I suppose Jenner at least can talk about her plastic surgeries…) Also being added is Sheryl Underwood, the African-American stand-up comedienne who used to be a regularly syndicated radio personality on the national Tom Joyner Morning Show as well as on the Jamie Foxx channel for Sirius XM satellite radio. She is now a weekly contributor on radio’s Steve Harvey Morning Show. A former member of the U.S. Armed Forces, Underwood likes to call herself ”a sexually progressive God-fearing black Republican”. (Black GOP-er? CBS went looking for a needle in a haystack…)
EXCLUSIVE: Coming off a strong July in which it drew its largest audience (2.21 million) and women 25-54 rating (1.0/6) since February, CBS’ daytime talk show The Talk is undergoing some changes. I hear that heading into Season 2, the show has picked up the options of co-host/creator Sara Gilbert and co-hosts Sharon Osbourne and Julie Chen, while the options of Leah Remini and Holly Robinson Peete have not been picked up. While the future of Remini and Robinson Peete is unclear, they are not expected to return when The Talk kicks off its second season Sept. 6. The show’s producing team, led by John Redmann, who has been with The Talk since the beginning, is currently mapping out the show’s creative direction for Season 2 before a decision is made about potentially bringing in new co-hosts. Osbourne had recently asked for some time off in the fall to be with her husband, so she will return to the show after that.
The Talk, the first network daytime talk show to successfully premiere in nearly 10 years, has delivered a 0.7 women 25-54 rating to date on the CBS O&O stations, improving its time slot by 17%. In the top three markets, the ratings improvement is between 33% and 133%. Additionally, the talk show has been sold internationally in the U.K., Mexico, Canada and India.
