“We’re proud that THE TALK has already established great brand identity in only its second season,” said David Stapf, President, CBS Television Studios. “Much of the success can be attributed to our hosts’ chemistry and the work of our producers, whose selection of topics and guests are clearly resonating with viewers.”
