Julie Chen Teases the New Women of 'The Talk' on 'Late Late Show' (VIDEO)

Julie Chen, 'The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson'You can always tell when Julie Chen is on 'The Late Late Show' (Weeknights, 12:37AM ET on CBS), because Craig Ferguson is on his best behavior. After all, her husband is Les Moonves, the head of the network.

He actually asked her about the new season of 'The Talk,' which has been getting a lot of press due to the cast shake-up. Out are Holly Robinson Peete and Leah Remini. In is Sheryl Underwood as a regular co-host.

"We just announced that joining us at the desk will be Molly Shannon from 'Saturday Night Live.'" Chen said, to Ferguson's delight. Shannon has been tapped as a guest co-host for the month of September.

While no permanent second co-host has yet been announced, fans can also look forward to Kris Jenner filling in for Sharon Osbourne at the start of the season for a little while. According to the show's Wiki page, Marlee Matlin is in talks to possibly fill that second regular spot in the near future.

But for now, 'The Talk' returns tomorrow on CBS at 2PM ET, where Chen promises Underwood will share her fascinating story. Always the professional, that Chen, turning a tease into a plug.

I found proof that Julie Chen fired Holly and Leah because of a personal reason: jealousy.

Julie Chen reminds me of people at my last job. They may seem nice and caring. They can smile at your face. But, deep down, they will stab you in the back. When something happens to you, they leave you hanging.

On pleeeeease not another Kardashian. And WHO is that obnoxious black woman? Somebody totally, and I mean TOTALLY missed the mark on these two. It's over for sure with this cast.

This is my l00th blog-no kiddig. OK i know i need a life but i am truly troubled the way that CBS has treated the dismissal of Holly and Leah. CBS remember the Tonight Show. If anyone has ever worked with the boss's wife we know who has the advantage. Julie did you start to whine ?? Holly- Footlocker will be calling you soon and they will employ you on your jurny to your new gig. Leah, I saw you start to blossom on the Talk. You both were real. The writers insulted Sheryl U. by insinuating that she looked like wesly snipes-what a low blow. Kris J., Molly Shannon-too animated. CBS u screwed up and you will be up and away very soon. Why ?

To: Les Moonves......You really messed this one up! Your wifes show will not survive with Sara Gilbert. They are the 2 most robotic people...at least your wife has "Big Brother"....

This show was my alternative to The View, and now -- what the hell happened to Leah and Holly??? No explanation, no mention, no nothing! Chen, who's only in that chair b/c she sleeps with the pres. of CBS, was only "likeable" b/c of the camaraderie of the other 4 hosts. Now that Chen has rid the table of 2 of the BEST hosts, what does that tell you? She was what ... jealous of the laughs both Leah and Holly got? Felt like she lost control of her precious role on The Talk? Chen, you got nuttin' baby, except the bed you share with what's his name. You're going to lose viewers like the plague, lady, and all because of ...... what? Sharon O is obnoxious most times, and that quiet one, whose idea spawned this show, doesn't have a clue how to be likeable. I'd be surprised if you make it through Season Two. Oh, but wait, Chen sleeps with the big guy, so yeah, this will be on forever, but w/o many viewers. No class, Chen, no class at all.

The Season2 premiere was AWFUL. VERY POORLY PRODUCED. BAD CHEMISTRY They didn't even acknowledge that 2 of the hosts were missing so any loyal viewers who don't read the internet blogs must have been shocked and trying to figure out what was going on and where were Holly & Leah? Then they never really introduced Sheryl so here was this mystery black woman in Leah's chair and what was SHE doing there? (Couldn't she have gotten some of Molly's time to talk about her comedy roots or her GOP politics?) Then she does suicide jokes? NOT FUNNY. Their BIG GET for Season 2 is JEnLoveHewitt talking about a prostitute show and then making fun of pushy Jewish women? (Speaking of, is Underwood a MOM? ISnt this a show about celebrity moms?) It was just awful...I just keep thinking at what loyal viewers must be wondering when 2/5 of the hosts are missing and its not even explained and then this unknown (to most) black woman is on the panel making jokes about her husbands death?

what happened on the talk? why are Leah and Holly gone? There was no warning. They were such a great team I mean the whole group. The show will not be as good as before.

It really was so poorly handled. They had to realize that not everyone reads internet blogs and you can't fire nearly half of your hosts and then not even acknowledge it

I'm not happy with Leah Remini not being on the show because she was so funny! Holly R. Peet had so much to add to the show. My question is what happened?
