Does anyone out there watch CBS's daytime talk show The Talk? Any of you out there? Blatantly inspired (or more like stolen) from ABC network's The View, the show which features women celebrities dishing dirt has actually been a strong ratings-puller for the network.

Funny, I figured he'd have one in his friggin' house.
