The Talk ratings plummet as it becomes the lowest-rated daytime program -

• by Brian GALLAGHER

The Talk returned with original episodes for the first time since Sharon Osbourne's abrupt exit from the show, and the ratings have plummeted even further.

The CBS syndicated talk show returned on April 13, its first episode in nearly a month after Osbourne's abrupt exit, after getting into a heated argument with Sheryl Underwood over her support for Piers Morgan.

The Talk had been suffering from slipping ratings even before the hiatus, but Soap Opera Network reports it has now fallen to become the lowest-rated daytime show. 

The ratings report for the week of April 12-16 revealed The Talk came in last place in both the Women 18-49 demographic (0.23 rating) and the Women 25-54 demographic (0.35 rating).
