There is one thing that can be said about CBS’s daytime gabfest, The Talk! The producers and the executive behind-the-scenes, CBS Daytime’s Angelica McDaniel, know how to utilize their network line-up to cross promote for tune-in, especially their soaps!
Take note Katie Couric! Even though you are a new syndicated talker, you are airing on over 95% of ABC affiliates in the country. So perhaps having a guest or two from General Hospital during your premiere week might be the thing to do, since you insisted you wanted the soap as your lead-in, when push came to shove.
But back to The Talk. The increasing popular series is doing it right for their season three premiere on September 10th when the ladies of the panel: Sharon Osbourne, Julie Chen, Sara Gilbert, Sheryl Underwood and Aisha Tyler appear without make-up! But here is the kicker! So do their guests who happen to be The Young and the Restless’ Michelle Stafford (Phyllis), Melody Thomas Scott (Nikki), and The Bold and the Beautiful’s Katherine Kelly Lang (Brooke). Along for the no make-up day episode is also film star, Jamie Lee Curtis.
The Talk airs weekdays at 2PMEST/1PMPST and CST. So will you be tuning in to see The Talk? Do you agree that they have been successfully cross-promoting their CBS soap line-up when possible on the series? Weigh-in!
