    Gilbert seems like the one you'd most like the one you'd like to have in your actual mom's group. The others, not so much. [15 Nov 2010, p.43]

    This mommy-answer to "The View" is a somewhat dumbed-down version of that show except here the panel--Julie Chen, Sharon Osbourne, Holly Robinson Peete, Leah Remini, Sara Gilbert and Marissa Jaret Winokur--discuss traditional "women's topics," i.e. kids, cooking and such.

    If you don't have a support group of pals to compare notes with, you could do worse than The Talk. Let's hope it stays lively.

    Like "The View," The Talk was an hour of plastic blatherers pretending to be a microcosm of American women.
  5. 30
    A clumsily obvious rip-off of the Barbara Walters sensation "The View."
  6. Unlike "The View," there were no topical references--the show could have been filmed five years ago for all its relevance--unless you count the moment Osbourne turned a vague discussion of divorce law reform into a rant against cyberbullying.

    I must admit, I was not happy when I heard there was going to be another daytime talk show, so for the first few months, I didn't watch. I happened to catch an episode a month ago and liked it. I think it's better than The View. They don't talk over each other and they talk about every day things, not necessarily news worthy events only. Expand

    I love this show! These are real women, talking like real women, about a lot of the things that matter to real women (and men too).
    There is
    a genuine warmth and affection between them and it makes me feel like I'm listening to my best friends discussing what matters to us.
    Long live The Talk!

    This is a wonderful group of women. Various personality types and they all respect each other and their audience. I watch every chance I get. There is occasional tension between them but they handle it in a way that I wish our politicians, leaders and other TV personalities and shows would emulate. Expand

    Eventhough I am not a mom yet, I still watch the show regularly. And it is fun. The hosts don't act like big shots. The topics that are discussed, especially during the beginning of he show are well-picked. Keep going gals :) Expand

    Leah and Holly are gone and I'm sure Sharon isn't far behind! No appeal to watch the show anymore. So, I'm over it! Holly amd Leah were magical together. Expand
