CBS has launched an investigation into its weekday show The Talk following a heated exchange between co-hosts Sharon Osbourne and Sheryl Underwood. The network cancelled its shows on Monday and Tuesday while the probe is ongoing.

Deadline reported Osborne became combative on Wednesday’s show during a discussion with Underwood about her support for former Good Morning Britain host Piers Morgan.

“We are committed to a diverse, inclusive and respectful workplace,” the network said in a statement. “All matters related to the Wednesday episode of “The Talk” are currently under internal review.”

Following Osborne’s statement about Morgan last week, Underwood said that “while you are standing by your friend, it appears that you are giving validation or safe haven to something that he has uttered that is racist.”

“I feel like I’m about to be put in the electric chair, because I have a friend who many people think is racist, so that makes me a racist,” Osborne said.

Osbourne posted on Twitter an apology about the exchange to “anyone of colour that I offended and/or to anyone that feels confused or let down by what I said.”

Monday morning, CNN host Kasie Hunt ended an interview with the national press secretary for former President Donald Trump’s campaign after she attacked anchor Jake Tapper. Hunt took to social media to make one thing clear.

“You come on my show, you respect my colleagues. Period,” wrote Hunt. “I don’t care what side of the aisle you stand on, as my track record clearly shows.”

During the CNN This Morning interview, Hunt asked Karoline Leavitt a pair of questions about the former President’s debate preparation. In each answer, Leavitt turned the attention to Tapper, which Hunt quickly shot down.

“Ma’am, we’re going to stop this interview if you’re going to keep attacking my colleagues,” Hunt said as the pair talked over one another.

After Leavitt said that she was “stating facts” by mentioning that CNN has been biased in its coverage of Trump, especially from Tapper, Hunt ended the interview.

“I’m sorry … Karoline, thanks very much for your time. You are welcome to come back at any point,” said Hunt.

On social media, Leavitt took issue with Hunt’s conduct during the exchange.

“You cut off my microphone for bringing up the debate moderator’s history of anti-Trump lies,” she wrote. “This proved our point that President Trump will not be treated fairly on Thursday.”

As CNN makes preparations to host the first presidential debate next week, it has added several partners to simulcast the event. A new report suggests MSNBC, Newsmax, and NewsNation will join an already growing field of partners.

A report from the Los Angeles Times claims that the CNN debate will be added by MSNBC/NBC News, Newsmax, NewsNation, Scripps News, and Telemundo.

When asked by Barrett News Media if the network was partnering with CNN to broadcast the debate, Newsmax CEO Christopher Ruddy simply stated “True.”

Those networks would join ABC News — who will host the second presidential debate in September, Fox News, and PBS as simulcast partners. In addition to airing on Fox News, the network will also broadcast the 90-minute event on the Fox Business Network, network FOX, the FOX Nation streaming app, and will provide the debate to its Fox News Radio affiliates.

While the report from the LA Times says that the bevy of networks will also simulcast the event, none of the networks outside of Newsmax have publicly announced their intention to partner with CNN. Barrett News Media has asked each network for comment.
