Molly Shannon to serve as a guest host on 'The Talk'
Molly Shannon will appear as a guest host on CBS' "The Talk' this month, sources close to production confirmed to Showtracker.
The "Saturday Night Live" alum will join hosts Sara Gilbert, Julie Chen, Sharon Osbourne and new addition Sheryl Underwood, who will join the show at the start of the season.
Shannon's addition comes on the heels of news Kris Jenner, the matriarch of the Kardashian clan, would also be a guest host in the upcoming season. The added bodies are needed given that Leah Remini confirmed she would not be returning. "It is official: I am sorry to say that I have NOT been asked back on the show,' she said via Twitter. "No reason was given," she replied later. And Holly Robinson Peete's fate remains in limbo, though she's not expected to be returning.
The new season of "The Talk" starts Tuesday.
