It’s Official: Aisha Tyler Added To “The Talk” Line-up As Co-Host

In what may have been the longest audition ever, actress-comedian Aisha Tyler has finally landed her new gig as “The Talk” co-host after a week long stint.

Today will be the comedian’s first salaried day at the CBS daytime show, according to Deadline.com. She will join “The Talk” regulars Sara Gilbert, Julie Chen, Sharon Osbourne and Sheryl Underwood already at the table. Along with Underwood, Tyler is the second new co-host tapped for the talk show following the recent firing departure of Leah Remini and Holly Robinson Peete.

For the past 2 months, the talk show has screened quite a few guest hosts, including Kris Jenner and Molly Shannon, as Osbourne is taking some time off this fall.

Tyler, who is known as the first black actor to land a major role on NBC’s megahit “Friends,” is said to have talk show hosting experience. A few of her hosting gigs include CBS’ “Late Late Show” during the transitional period between Craig Kilborn and Craig Ferguson, host of E!’s “Talk Soup,” and in 2009, she even shot a pilot for her own talk show with ABC.

While her new gig will undoubtedly take the forefront of her career, Tyler, continues to do comedy tours and voices one of the leads on FX’s animated comedy “Archer.”

Of course, MSDTV will keep you posted. Stay Tuned.
