“The Talk” films in front of a live audience. Even if they’d returned they couldn’t have an audience without somehow guaranteeing there would be no outbursts

As I told you on Friday, there was no way to get tickets for this coming week. “The Talk” was not included in a list of shows that give away tickets.
