The Talk The Talk

The ladies of The View better watch their backs. The Talk is coming back for more daytime action.

CBS has renewed The Talk for the 2012-2013 broadcast season, the network announced Thursday.

"We are thrilled with the evolution and growth of The Talk," said CBS chief Nina Tassler in a statement.  "The show has high energy, spirited conversation, relevant topics, and the audience is responding."

Julie Chen, Sara Gilbert and Sharon Osbourne, Marissa Jaret Winokur, Leah Remini and Holly Robinson Peete began as the original co-hosts of the show. Winokur, who served as the "mother on the street," left amicably over the lack of airtime. The Talk let Remini and Robinson Peete go in 2011. Since then, Sheryl Underwood and Aisha Tyler joined as the new co-hosts.

The Talk, which averaged 2.16 million viewers in its second season, airs weekdays at 2 p.m. ET/1 p.m. PT on CBS.
