Looks like CBS is trying to pull out all the stops to revamp The Talk. Deadline is reporting funny gal Molly Shannon is heading to the CBS gabfest. According to the site, Shannon will be a guest co-host the entire month of September, along with the original hosts Julie Chen, Sara Gilbert, Sharon Osbourne and newcomer Sheryl Underwood.
Are we really suppose to believe CBS isn't trying to make this hot mess a rip-off of The View? Three comics on ABC's chatfest, three comic actors on CBS'? How long will we have to wait for Sara and Sheryl to get into a smackdown over politics? Here's hoping Molly's Saturday Night Live buddy Tina Fey creates a sitcom to rescue her from the madness.
The Talk returns for season 2 on Sept. 6 at 2 PM EST on CBS.
