Sheryl Underwood thinks other daytime TV shows should try to “replicate” ‘The Talk’.
The 58-year-old star joined the show more than a decade ago, and she thinks rival shows could learn from the CBS program, which revamped its panel last year after Sharon Osbourne’s controversial exit.

The long-running show now includes Natalie Morales, Amanda Kloots, Jerry O’Connell, Sheryl and Akbar Gbajabiamila.

She told People, “That’s why it clicks. We just got together and it kind of clicks because it works. I think the diversity shows here and it’s not forced. It’s what it is, it’s not forced.”

As part of our review, we have concluded that Sharon’s behavior towards her co-hosts during the The March 10 episode didn’t align with our values for a We also found no evidence that CBS executives orchestrated the discussion or caught any of the hosts off guard.
“At the same time, we recognize that the network and studio teams, as well as the showrunners, are responsible for what happened on this show because it was clear that the co-hosts were not properly prepared. by staff for a complex and sensitive discussion involving race.”
