BOSTON (CBS) – There are thousands of stories from Tuesday night’s power outage in Boston and viewers of “The Talk” may hear some of them in a couple weeks. Two of its hosts, Julie Chen and Aisha Tyler were in Boston promoting the CBS show.
“I survived the 1977 blackouts in New York City, I was seven years old at the time,” says Chen. “But it made for an interesting night.”
It’s a trip they will not soon forget, and they made it a memorable lunch for a group of women and one man, WBZ General Manager, Ed Piette at the Four Seasons Wednesday.
Chen says the show is “one hour of pure enjoyment” and she just wants people to laugh and have a good time.
“It’s not just froth,” says Tyler. “There is real value in the show.”
And the fan base is growing. The Talk, which airs weekday afternoons on WBZ, is heading into its third season with more than 2.5 million viewers every day.
Along with fellow hosts Sharon Osbourne, Sara Gilbert and Sheryl Underwood, Julie and Aisha put celebrity guests at ease, dish about their lives and talk about almost everything.
They say they’d like to come back and actually tape a show with the other hosts in Boston.
