Sara Gilbert to replace 'As The World Turns' with mom chat show

CBS is replacing the canceled "As the World Turns" soap with a new daytime talk show co-hosted by Julie Chen, Sara Gilbert, Sharon Osbourne, Holly Robinson Peete, Leah Remini, and Marissa Jaret Winokur.

The format will resemble ABC's The View, with the co-hosts discussing various current events but from a motherhood point of view, according to CBS. All of the hosts have children from infants to adults.

The talk show will also feature interviews with big-name entertainers and newsmakers. Gilbert will act as both co-host and executive producer.

"Daytime is an evolving daypart with more variety now among soap operas, game and talk shows," Barbara Bloom, CBS' Senior Vice President of Daytime, said in a statement. "We were looking for a new format that would speak to the core audience but also have the topical and entertainment value to go even broader. This panel is not a bashful bunch; they are outspoken on any issue you put on the table. It promises to be an hour of television with timely discussions, unfiltered opinions and a lot of personality."

The final episode of As the World Turns airs in September.
