'The Talk' Nabs Guest Host 'Saturday Night Live' Alum Molly Shannon
CBS’s The Talk is continuing to stir things up with its daytime show, The Talk, with funny lady, Molly Shannon.
A network spokesperson confirms to The Hollywood Reporter that the Saturday Night Live alum will be guest hosting for the month of Sept. starting with its return next Tuesday. She will join existing hosts Sara Gilbert, Julie Chen and Sharon Osbourne, as well as new addition, Sheryl Underwood.
The actress and comedian will be filling in at least one of the chairs for recently dismissed co-hosts Leah Remini and Holly Robinson Peete, whose contracts weren’t renewed for the new season. She may also cross paths with recently announced Mama Kardashian, Kris Jenner, who may start in late-September. Jenner is set to appear for two weeks.
Shannon made a name for herself on NBC's SNL after starting on the late night sketch show in 1995. She has gone on to appear in several movies, including Superstar, Analyze This, Never Been Kissed, How the Grinch Stole Christmas, and recently Bad Teacher. Last year, she appeared on Fox's Glee and starred in the TBS series, Neighbors From Hell.
