According to an industry mole, The Talk's star has dimmed since Sharon Osbourne left after being accused of making racist remarks and Julie Chen fled following the sexual misconduct scandal of her hotshot hubby, axed CBS exec Les Moonves.

The spy squealed, "Things changed. The network no longer prioritizes it. The advertising budget was reduced as ratings declined."

As this outlet reported, the announcement of soap opera legend Michele Val Jean's new show — The Gates, which is centered around a wealthy Black family — sparked fears that The Talk's time was coming to an end.

With Val Jean's expertise in the soap opera world — having written over 2,000 episodes for smash hits like General Hospital and The Bold and the Beautiful — it's likely that the latest show will also be a hit, spelling more trouble for the daytime talk show that's tanked in ratings.

While CBS announced The Gates, the network failed to reveal how long each episode will be or where it would fall on the current lineup if it's picked up for a series — and The Talk's current time slot is the only one that makes sense for a replacement.

Long-running hits The Young and the Restless, currently ranked number one in daytime dramas, was picked up for four more seasons. The Bold & the Beautiful was also renewed through Fall 2025.
