Plot Synopsis

Four mothers who are also well-known entertainment personalities co-host this one-hour daytime talk show (Mon-Fri on CBS from 2-3pm ET and 1-2pm CT/PT) as they swap stories, challenge each other on life issues, and discuss the headlines. The program also includes guest interviews, live segments from the field, and home footage that the co-hosts shot themselves.

Season 4 of THE TALK debuted on Monday, September 9, 2013 with two new features for the new season: a web-based feature, "Everybody Talks!," where viewers at home can join the conversation at the table by sending in their own videos, which are uploaded in real time and might be played live during the show; and a state-of-the-art kitchen with celebrity chefs.

THE TALK returned for its fifth season on Monday, September 8, 2014 at 2pm ET/1pm CT/1pm PT on CBS. Beginning Monday and on each day of the new season's first week, Julie, Sara, Sharon, Aisha and Sheryl are challenged to face their worst fears and phobias -- and see if they can conquer them. The following week (beginning Monday, September 15), the hosts share deeply personal secrets. Last season, the ladies' unexpected revelations included what is now a famous one-night stand, a controversial plastic surgery procedure, and struggles with infertility.

Season 6 of THE TALK premiered on Monday, September 14, 2015 at 2pm ET/1pm CT/1pm PT on CBS. For the new season, THE TALK used Facebook's live video streaming to share exclusive behind-the-scenes moments with each of the hosts throughout premiere week.

The eighth season of THE TALK premiered on Monday, September 11, 2017 at 2pm ET/1pm CT/1pm PT on CBS. The season kicks off with some of CBS' primetime leading men as special guest co-hosts, including Wayne Brady (LET'S MAKE A DEAL), Shemar Moore (S.W.A.T.), Chris O'Donnell (NCIS: LOS ANGELES), Eric Christian Olsen (NCIS: LOS ANGELES), and Wilmer Valderrama (NCIS).

Season 10 of THE TALK premiered on Monday, September 9, 2019 at 2pm ET/1pm PT on CBS, with hosts Sharon Osbourne, Sheryl Underwood, Eve, Carrie Ann Inaba and Marie Osmond.
THE TALK returned for its twelfth season on Monday, September 13, 2021 at 2pm ET/1pm PT on CBS, with hosts Akbar Gbaja-Biamila, Amanda Kloots, Jerry O'Connell, and Sheryl Underwood. One month later -- on Monday, October 11 -- Natalie Morales joined the show as host, alongside the other four hosts.
