CBS has revealed the name of the AS THE WORLD TURNS talk show replacement, THE TALK. The network's entertainment president Nina Tassler revealed the (similar to THE VIEW) name at the Television Critics Association meeting today.
According to Deadline.com, Tassler said it was the the series' creator/executive producer Sara Gilbert who suggested casting Julie Chen. As for the pickup to series, "I made the decision," Tassler said. "I don’t think Les [Moonves] is unhappy with it,... but show screened great and tested the best of all the pilots. The elephant in the room is that Julie is on the show, but she happens to be terrific on the show. She shouldn't be penalized for being married to the CEO."
