What’s the secret to The Talk’s success? According to the show’s moderator, leaving things exactly the same. In an interview with The New York Post, Julie Chen discussed why the daytime show has become TV’s fasted-growing chatfest. Chen stated:
I think it’s a little bit of, ‘If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.
Chen also weighed in comparisons between The Talk and The View:
I don’t pay any attention to [‘The View’] — I know it’s out there . . . but ever since I started working on ‘The Talk,’ I stopped watching ‘The View.’ It’s funny, I haven’t seen an episode [of ‘The View’] since the Rosie O’Donnell days. It’s interesting to see they’re shaking it up . . . but there’s room for everyone to be successful,” she says. “We’ve come up in the ratings and they’re not going anywhere.
Season 4 of The Talk begins Sept. 9 at 2 pm EST on CBS.
