A Day Out With The Talk's Julie Chen and Sharon Osbourne

Sharon Osbourne and Julie Chen

On paper, Julie Chen and Sharon Osbourne — the queen bees of CBS' girly gabfest The Talk — couldn't be more different. Chen, a pedigreed journalist, spent years rising up the ranks at The Early Show and hosting Big Brother.

Instead of a monologue, there's a Mazel (and Jackhole) of the Week. Instead of coffee or water, the guests get cocktails from the on-set bar. And rather than musical performances from chart-toppers and Grammy winners, the tunes come courtesy of acts such as Real Housewives stars Kim Zolciak and Countess LuAnn de Lesseps.

"We're Wayne's World meets Playboy After Dark," Andy Cohen, series host and Bravo senior vice president of production and programming, tells TVGuide.com.

Premise: A morning mixture of news, features and weather, telecast from a Manhattan studio across from Central Park. The launch of `The Early Show' in 1999 marked Bryant Gumbel's return to the morning wars in a ratings battle against his old program, NBC's `Today,' as well as ABC's `Good Morning America.'
