The Talk: One Host Won’t Be Back for Season Eight

“There was no way to do a daytime talk show every day and still be a director”, Tyler said during Thursday’s episode.”You have made the last six years of my life so solid and amusing and smart and just secure, I couldn’t fly this plane with any other person to my right”, Julie Chen added. I could not have done this without you. It’s all because of scheduling.The reason Tyler had to leave was simply that her schedule had become overly full, with “Criminal Minds” and “Archer” on her TV schedule, not to mention her hosting duties with “Whose Line Is It Anyway” and her recent foray into directing with her first film.”I’ve always dreamt of this and I didn’t know how it would go, but it was one of the best experiences of my life”.”I started to think about, if I want to be a director, how can I do this thing I love every day and still make the space to direct a film?”Tyler came aboard in 2011 along with comedian Sheryl Underwood.Tyler said her choice was the “hardest decision” in her life, adding that she considers the co-hosts to be her family, with whom she has “precious” friendships. Julie Chen and Sharon Osbourne both held Tyler’s hands through the announcement.The 46-year-old actress was comforted by her fellow co-hosts as she announced during the show that she would be departing at the end of the current season. It wasn’t made clear if someone is replacing her.In a statement, CBS Entertainment and Television Distribution’s evp, daytime programs and syndicated program development Angelica McDaniel said, “Saying goodbye to Aisha is a bittersweet moment for all of us at CBS daytime and The Talk”.”Even though we’re separating, all I want for him is joy and fulfillment in whatever he chooses to do in his life next”.Aisha will be exiting next month, but emphasized she would love to return and guest host in the future.
