**Also with The Wendy Williams Show mostly due to Sharon Osbourne's dislike of her and Williams bullying Carrie Ann Inbaba to lose her job on Dancing With The Stars due to her constructive criticism of her dancing.



* OddFriendship: For the current panel: Who would've thought that the host of ''Series/BigBrother'', Ruff Ryders First Lady, a wife of one of the [[Music/OzzyOsbourne biggest rockstars in the world]], [[Series/{{Roseanne}} Darlene]] and a legendary comedian would become best friends? It's actually awesome. But it's also a [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n_NCp_BHvo8 requirement]] to have chemistry with all of the co-hosts in order to be a permanent co-host on ''The Talk''. Sara and Julie had a [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hFr1MdFHV6Y whole discussion]] about this on their friendship especially when the two go hang out together.
* OnceASeason: The hosts have been marking Halloween with a perennial "Rocktober Lip-Sync War" since 2014.

* TalkShow: One of the definitive more prominent American examples.

Added DiffLines:

* BaitAndSwitch: As just one example, the segment which was supposed to feature Sara's contribution to Dare Week opened with a great deal of exposition on the theme, and after several minutes of buildup, Sara announced that she couldn't even do the thing because she was pregnant.

Added DiffLines:

* ShoutOut: Before the possibility of a ''Series/Roseanne'' reboot was even brought up, one episode of ''The Talk'' opened with a ''Roseanne'' sketch featuring not only Sara, but John Goodman, as well.

Added DiffLines:

* PieInTheFace: Sara had one of the stagehands give her some whipped cream and a plate so she could recreate an instance of another person getting pied; she came close to Julie in order to demonstrate. Julie lost control of the pie, and Sara herself ended up getting it full in the face.


* DeadpanSnarker: Sara Gilbert easily fits this trope with her sense of humor.


Added DiffLines:

* WorldOfSnark: everybody on the panel has snarky moments at least periodically; it's not uncommon for one of the ladies to cut up just before a throw to commercial.

Added DiffLines:

* OnceASeason: The hosts have been marking Halloween with a perennial "Rocktober Lip-Sync War" since 2014.


* AwesomeMomentOfCrowning: Eve's [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wzJSEUlmA0I introduction as a co-host]]. Eve walked out to a confetti cannon and hugs from her fellow co-hosts. What's even more awesome is that she walked out to her biggest hit "Let Me Blow Ya Mind" which notably became the inaugural winner for Best Rap/Sung Collaboration at the Grammy's; not to mention, the song is very fitting too.

''The Talk'' is a daytime talk show airing weekdays on Creator/{{CBS}}. It is hosted by a panel of five celebrities who engage in news commentary, celebrity gossip, and newsmaker interviews. The show was created by actress Sara Gilbert, who also serves as an executive producer, along with John Redmann. The show is based on the British daily women's panel show Loose Women, which has been running regularly in the United Kingdom since 1999. The start of the show's ninth season saw the announcement that Julie Chen had left the show; Gilbert took the moderator's chair, and Carrie Ann Inaba officially became a full member of the panel on January 4th, 2019.

* RevolvingDoorCasting: This is a zig-zaged trope. Although the show will have substitute hosts when a permanent co-host is unable to make it to the show (the most notable being Carnie Wilson of Wilson Phillips); only "Mother on the Street" Marissa Jaret Winokur, Leah Remini, Holly Robinson Peete and Aisha Tyler have left the show the latter leaving to pursue a directing career. Tyler said the show worked so well (and rarely having any permanent co-host changes) is because of their real life friendships. Tyler proves her point because she and Winokur made guest appearances respectively on the show following their departures. Remini and Peete did not return because of their surprise terminations. The on air auditions of season 8 qualify for this trope because every week there was a new lady auditioning for the show before ultimately deciding on Eve.

* SpotlightStealingSquad: Although, not intentionally (as all of the co-hosts revolve the show on their real life friendships) Sheryl Underwood's comedic antics and jokes gain a lot of attention on the show to the point where if any of the other co-hosts are asked about ''The Talk'' Sheryl is usually brought up. Take CBS's Philadelphia's interview with Eve for example on the co-hosts first meeting with Eve (Underwood's antics did prompt the reporter to ask about her first).

Added DiffLines:

* GracefulLoser: The hosts warmly congratulated their friends at ''Series/TheReal'' on their 2018 "Best Talk Show Host" Emmy.


* GuestHost: When other work commitments or life events get in the way for one of the co-hosts this is expected. The most notable being Carnie Wilson (who was also in the running for Aisha Tyler's spot) who has been subbing for the co-hosts since the first season and Carrie Ann Inaba (who also auditioned for Aisha Tyler's spot).
* HappyPlace: A literal example of this. Although the show discusses tragic events and sensitive subjects; CBS Philadelphia's Jessica Dean (who appeared on the show) called the place a "family atmosphere" in her [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w2kdtRrJNmg interview]] with Eve because of the positive relationship the co-hosts and producers of the show have with each other and their guests. With of the exception of Leah Remini, Holly Robinson Peete and [[https://www.yelp.com/biz/cbs-studio-center-studio-city-2 a few Yelp reviews]] no host or production team member has said anything awful about each other. Not to mention, none of the guests they had on the show has said anything bad to say about appearing on the show with the sole exception of Sharon Osbourne [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xIKUOEi1e88 disliking]] having Ashton Kutcher on the show.

* TeamMom: Save for Sheryl Underwood all of the current co-hosts are mothers or in Eve's case a step mother.
* TransAtlanticEquivalent: The British version is known as ''Loose Women'' which Sharon Osbourne has appeared on several times. Osbourne also got Sheryl Underwood and Jane Moore to [[https://twitter.com/MrsSOsbourne/status/924390294585352192 meet for the first time]] during a taping of ''X-Factor''.
