'The Talk': Let's talk ... what did you think?

the-talk-cast.jpg "The Talk" debuted Monday (Oct. 18) on CBS. It features a round-table of women who seem to be differentiating themselves (at least initially) from "The View" by focusing on being mothers and providing support for mothers across the country.

Executive Producer Sara Gilbert says this of the show's concept, "I went to this second-time moms group ... we started talking about parenting and then eventually we started talking about everything in the world and one day I just thought people across the country need this, this kind of support system."

That's all well and good, but the first episode got off to a bit of a shaky start.
