    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]

    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.

    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.
  4. 30
    A clumsily obvious rip-off of the Barbara Walters sensation "The View."
  5. 30
    Like "The View," The Talk was an hour of plastic blatherers pretending to be a microcosm of American women.
  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.

    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 :) Full Review »

    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. Full Review »
