The Talk ratings plummet after Sharon Osbourne quits as show is daytime’s lowest-rated program

THE Talk’s ratings have plummeted since Sharon Osbourne’s explosive exit from the show and is now ranked as daytime TV’s lowest-rated program.

The wife of rocker Ozzy Osbourne quit last month after getting into a fiery row with co-host Sheryl Underwood, which resulted in the British personality to be accused of being "racist."

Sharon, 68, and Sheryl, 57, found themselves in a heated discussion after the British personality supported her pal Piers Morgan's brutal comments about Meghan Markle.

These included doubting the Duchess of Sussex's claims she felt suicidal while pregnant with her first child.

Following their on-air battle and Sharon’s exit from the show, recent viewing figures have shown a significant drop in ratings.

Released on the website Soap Opera Network, CBS’ The Talk has remained daytime’s lowest-rated program, ranking 13th in both of the female age groups.

The fired host broke her silence for the first time since leaving The Talk when she appeared on Real Time with Bill Maher earlier this month.

During the interview, Sharon slammed her former co-hosts as "disgruntled b****es."

During the interview, Sharon slammed her past co-hosts for coming forward with claims of racism and admitted women are "b****es and that's the way it is."

She continued: "I never, ever said that Leah Remini was a whatever she said. I don't even use though words. They're not in my vocabulary.

"And for Holly, I think I said when I printed the text that she sent me after she said I got her fired. In the text she said, 'I know it was Julie. I know it was Les. I'm thinking of suing."'

Sharon added: "It's disgruntled ladies."

Leah, 50, previously claimed Sharon called co-host Julie Chen "racial slurs," while Holly Robinson Peete alleged that the longtime host was "condescending" and called her "too ghetto" for the show.

Following Holly's claims, Sharon defended herself by posting an email from her former cohost on Instagram, which she captioned: "In response to @hollyrpeete Holly Robinson Peete’s accusation of me getting her fired from @thetalkcbs and saying she was ‘too ghetto’ to be on The Talk.

"I never once uttered those words and I am sharing an email sent to me from Holly one month after she was let go by CBS. As I have stated before, I have never had the ability/authority to get anyone fired from @thetalkcbs and Ms. Peete’s email speaks for itself.”

In the alleged email from Holly, dated September 19, 2011, the actress and talk show host appeared to be on good terms. 

Holly allegedly wrote “miss you madly” to Sharon and said she has called her “a few times.”

She ended the email with “xoxox.”

Sharon also spoke about cancel culture during the interview, stating: "I'm a fighter. I'm doing just fine."

After reiterating that she's "doing just fine," Sharon added: "But what about the people who were cut from the knees down and they can't afford to go get lessons about what's politically correct and how to talk to people?

"What happens to them? It's not fair because it isn't about being a racist. It's about maybe not knowing about what is correct and woke for your language that day, cause it changes from day to day- what is correct and what isn't."
