Official: Aisha Tyler added as co-host on 'The Talk'

The Talk will have something fresh to address on Monday – a new co-host. The CBS daytime talk show has officially added Aisha Tyler, the actress best known for gigs on Ghost Whisperer and Friends, to the panel alongside Sara Gilbert, Julie Chen, Sharon Osbourne and Sheryl Underwood.

Tyler previously guest-hosted on the daytime show that celebrates its one-year anniversary this month. She’ll debut Monday, according to Deadline.

In 2009, Tyler shot an eponymous talk show pilot for ABC that was described as a cross between daytime and late-night talk shows. The hope was to take the actress’ show to syndication. She also co-hosted on The View as well as Entertainment Tonight.

Meanwhile, Tyler continues to lend her voice to FX’s animated series Archer as Lana.

As part of an attempt to revamp the year-old show, CBS has rotated in a number of gals to help fill the void left by Leah Remini and Holly Robinson Peete, whose contracts were not renewed. Kris Jenner did a stint, as did Molly Shannon.
