In addition to The Talk, Tyler is also a series regular on CBS' Criminal Minds, hosts Whose Line Is It Anyway? and lends her voice to hit animated series, Archer.

"Honestly, I am the most excited I've been in a long long long time", Eve, whose full name is Eve Jihan Jeffers-Cooper, told her fellow co-hosts.

"We are thrilled to welcome Eve to the table as she brings a fun and fresh perspective to our already diverse panel", said Angelica McDaniel, exec vp daytime programs at CBS Entertainment. "The great success of The Talk is due to the undeniable chemistry and bond of friendship between the hosts".

Hopefully, Eve will feel a similar connection to her co-hosts as she takes Tyler's seat on The Talk.

The multi-hyphenate also says she'll continue to make time for both acting and music, while balancing her new job on "The Talk".

"It is a new career move for me", Eve told Variety. "But the last few months I've been feeling that I want to join something. And the plan was, before this opportunity came up, was to put out some music, which I still plan to do soon". "It's a new chapter in my life, so why not?"

"I think what I'm looking forward to the most is showcasing my personality and who I am now as a woman", Eve told Deadline. "These women made me feel courageous, they made me feel bold and energized and ready to pursue my dreams".

As Nicki Swift previously reported, The Talk's previous co-host Aisha Tyler left the show in early August 2017, in an effort to pursue other creative projects.

"I'm hoping I gain a new audience." she adds.
