'The Talk' Hits Season High, Sets New York Holiday Shows
CBS' The Talk is having a good day.
The daytime talker on Thursday announced that hosts Julie Chen, Sara Gilbert, Sharon Osbourne, Sheryl Underwood and Aisha Tyler will take the show to New York for the first time a week of holiday programming set to air Monday, Dec. 12 through Friday, Dec. 16.
"There is no place like New York during the holidays, so we thought that would be the perfect time to take the show on the road," Chen said in a statement announcing the news.
The holiday-themed episodes will feature segments and interviews with an array of celebrity guests and New York personalities.
The Talk, which this season has seen the departures of Leah Remini and Holly Robinson Peete, reached its largest audience of the season among total viewers for the week ending Nov. 4.
