Aisha Tyler is leaving CBS’s The Talk at the end of this season, she announced on Thursday’s edition of the daytime talk show. The co-host and actress explained that she’d simply become too busy, with three other TV shows and launching another career as a director, which she’d realized she wanted to devote more attention to.
For the second time in just a few weeks, CBS is faced with plugging a latenight hole. This time the network should be looking beyond the usual suspects to fill it. With the impending exit of Craig Ferguson, host of The Late Late Show, at year’s end, CBS has a unique opportunity to reshape its latenight lineup.
