The History of ‘The Talk’

Debuting on October 18, 2010, The Talk emerged as an American talk show, stepping into the time slot vacated by the enduring soap opera, As The World Turns, which had run for an impressive 54 seasons. Actress and host Sara Gilbert initially conceptualized the show, aiming to explore diverse topics through the prism of motherhood.

Over the years, The Talk has seen a rotation of hosts, including prominent figures such as Sara Gilbert, Julie Chen Moonves, Sharon Osbourne, Holly Robinson Peete, Leah Remini, Marissa Janet Winokur, Aisha Tyler, Eve, Carrie Ann Inaba, Marie Osmond, and Elaine Welteroth. Garnering accolades, the show has clinched 11 Daytime Emmy Awards and received 56 nominations, notably being recognized for outstanding talk show/entertainment in 2016 and 2018, as well as for its writing in 2015 and hosting in 2017.

Special late-night episodes, dubbed The Talk After Dark, and exclusive episodes on their Facebook page under the title Keep Talking have added diversity to its programming. Moreover, The Talk has made cameo appearances in popular series such as Supergirl and Jane the Virgin.

Despite its achievements, The Talk hasn’t been without its share of controversy, notably surrounding Sharon Osbourne’s remarks on sensitive topics and the lack of transparency regarding the departures of Remini and Robinson Peete.
