Sara Gilbert obviously does as acting is her craft. For the others? Just another example of how the original concept of the show got hijacked when Leah Remini and Holly Robinson Peete were replaced in the tortured manipulations if not started then at least assisted by at least one of the current panel. From its makeup the show was always going to have a somewhat more woman oriented frame of reference, but the initial concept of you share things you want to talk about with a circle of friends was refreshingly different from many of the other morning talk shows or The View. But now there's no difference between The Talk and any other daytime talk show: find a trending topic and do a piece on that, between news segments or references to headline news, tie in some celebrity guest interviews and cooking, pet, travel, etc. segments or Oscar, Grammy, etc. coverage, dating advice segments, etc. and voila just another talk show interchangeable with every other one.
