After the departure of
Holly Robinson Peete and
Leah Remini, CBS's daytime chatfest
"The Talk" needed a little spicing up. That's why the news that all-around funnylady
Aisha Tyler is joining comedian
Sheryl Underwood and original members
Julie Chen and
Sharon Osbourne is great for the show.
Why, you ask? Let us outline a few reasons below:
First things first, considering Osbourne is taking on a reduced role this season to spend time with her family, it helps to have another outspoken woman on the panel. Tyler is definitely not shy about sharing her opinions.
Tyler has experience as a host, having headed up E!'s "Talk Soup" from 2001-02, and brings an edgy wit to her role as Lana Kane on FX's animated hit, "Archer."
Did we mention she's funny? Because she's really, really funny.
Plus, she'll be great when discussing current events -- Tyler has a degree in political science from Dartmouth College. Hilarious, and an Ivy Leaguer to boot? What else could you ask for in a panelist?
Check out a clip from Tyler's debut and let us know what you think of her first day as "The Talk" co-host.
