There's no shortage of daytime talk shows on TV, but watching women you really respect open up about their own lives is something special. And that's exactly what The Talk delivers every day, starting on Monday, October 18.

This new show features a group of women you're familiar with ? Julie Chen, Sharon Osbourne, Sara Gilbert, Leah Remini, Holly Robinson Peete and Marissa Jaret Winokur ? in a fresh format: talking frankly about issues that matter to them, from current affairs to their personal lives and families.

Although they're at different stages in their lives, the six women of The Talk have a lot in common: They're all working mothers, juggling an overly full schedule (like we all do) every day. That grounded common denominator, combined with the show's casual tone and each woman's refreshing openness, makes each day's discussion deeply resonate.

And you always know that, whatever the topic, they'll talk it through with honesty, passion, intelligence ? and a great sense of humor as well.

The Talk airs weekday afternoons on CBS starting October 18, 2pm ET/1pm PT.
