CBS extends ‘The Talk’ through 2012

“The Talk” will keep talking for CBS next season.

The daytime gabber featuring Julie Chen, Sara Gilbert, Sharon Osbourne, Holly Robinson Peete and Leah Remini has been renewed for 2011-12.

Since replacing “As the World Turns” in October, “The Talk” has averaged 2.21 million viewers — and has come in at 2.4 million over the most recent two weeks measured in January.  It draws a 1.1 rating among women 25-54.

“After only a few months on the air, ‘The Talk’ has delivered creative and ratings growth and established a strong profile in daytime,” CBS Entertainment prexy Nina Tassler said.

The show bowed with Marissa Jaret Winokur as a sixth contributor, but it was announced this month that she would be departing.

Gilbert exec produces the series with Brad Bessey and John Redmann.
