Sounds like damage control to us, but whatevs!
There's been quite a bit of speculation regarding why Holly Robinson Peete and Leah Remini were dropped from The Talk panel after its first season, with rumors that Julie Chen, who is married to CBS CEO Les Moonves, orchestrated the axing, but CBS Entertainment President Nina Tassler has finally spoken out on the issue, and attributes it all to growing pains!
“Any show in its first season goes through multiple changes. We were looking at a dynamic, we were looking at the quality of the commentary and we saw an opportunity [to improve the show]. The ratings have stayed virtually the same. The format may continue to evolve over time. Other talk shows have had host changes and survived as well. The most important part was the content and that the discussions have stayed spirited.”
Hmm…so long as the content and 'spirited' discussions are what Miss Chen sees fit, right?
LOLz! We kid, we kid…
What do U think?? Do U like the current line-up of The Talk??
