Molly talks too much and hogs the show. I quit watching once I realized that Holly and Leah were not coming back. What a HUGE mistake. I hope this decision cancels the stupid show!

I'm glad to hear so many people will not be watching The Talk any longer!!! That Julie Chen is ANNOYING! I hope they have to cancel the show and I would love to see Leah, Sharon and Holly on their own show.

The new combo of hostesses is not good. They don't play off each other well. I loved Leah and Holly and won't be watching this show any more. I had had it set up on my DVR to tape each day in case I couldn't watch it at the time it aired. Now I could care less. I will be deleteing my setting to record each day. I will find plenty of other things to take a doomed talk shows place.

I love the show, the variety of the topics and guests, spontaneous comedic reactions from the hosts and it is in a good time slot, BUT I would like to see more ethnic diversity represented among the women; preferably one Asian, Black, White, Hispanic along with various generations represented, IF that is possible...AND leave them on for at least one season.

Yeah, I watched a little bit online and I was bored from the get go! But even if asked, Leah and Holly should not come back. They deserve better treatment than they received. I hope it flops big time. Of course, Mr. Les Chen will keep it on as long as he can.
I hope somebody offers Leah and Holly their own show together. I think they would be great!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Sarah is so boring! Julie is so boring! And what's up with Sharon? She said she doesn't usually go around vomiting in public. I beg to differ. Last year she said she did the same thing at a restaurant when her son took her out to eat.
Moral of the story is, "If you see Sharon Osborne having dinner in a restaurant, don't go in. She might throw up on you."

NO! NO! NO!!!!!!!!!!! 3/4 into first show of the new season of the Talk. I don't like it. I want LEAH back. She added humor, realism, she told it like it was. She also wore beautiful clothes. PLEASE BRING HER BACK.
