So we kicked off the month with a US President and then inducted the next First Lady.  Now we’re going to add a newscaster/television personality to the mix….


From Wikipedia:
Julie Suzanne Chen Moonves (born January 6, 1970) is an American television personality, news anchor, and producer for CBS. She has been the host of the American version of the CBS reality-television program ‘Big Brother’ since its debut in July 2000 and is the longest-serving host of any country's version of the show. Chen Moonves was a co-host and the moderator of the CBS Daytime talk show, ‘The Talk’, for eight seasons. Previously, she was a co-anchor of ‘The Early Show’ on CBS.

There are three reasons why Julie Chen got so many credits as a member of the League of Themselves:

1) Her affiliations with ‘Big Brother’ and ‘The Talk’

2) Most of the shows involved had CBS connections

3) She is married to Les Moonves, who was the CBS head honcho at the time.

Here are the credits which gained her entry into TVXOHOF:

Yes, Dear
- Big Brother-in-Law

DEFINITE connection to ‘Big Brother’

Veronica Mars
- Normal Is the Watchword

From the Veronica Mars wiki:
Julie Chen is an American television presenter for CBS. She appears in her own role in the first episode of the second season, as she interviews Keith Mars about the murder of Lilly Kane and his newly released book.

Possible reference to ‘CBS Early Morning’

The Millers
 - Internet Dating

- Give Metta World Peace a Chance

The Comeback
- Valerie Faces the Critics

From a fan site:
Valerie Cherish explicitly stated to the ladies of ‘The Talk’ that ‘Seeing Red’ is a dark comedy. ‘The Talk’ also brings up the topic of Val’s marriage, breaking out Valerie and Mark’s ski slope wedding photos.

Crossover with ‘The Talk’

The Young and the Restless
 - Episode #1.10419
- Episode #1.11178

Life In Pieces
- Bunny Single Nightmare Drinking

Jane the Virgin
- Chapter Seventy-Four

From a fan site:
Rogelio goes on ‘The Talk’ – and how fun is it that we have the whole cast! Julie Chen, Sharon Osbourne, Sheryl Underwood, and Sara Gilbert! Fields denies that Male Post-Partum depression does not exist. Rogelio gains ground by dissolving into tears. Rogelio is ready to accept it as a draw, but Fields and Rogelio are also in the next segment… on wild animals.

Crossover with ‘The Talk’

She has doppelgangers in other TV dimensions as well:


The Unit
- Hero

Her connection to ‘CBS Early Morning’ may have referenced.

Madam Secretary
- Pilot (2014)

O’Bservation – This is probably from Tea Leoni’s appearance on ‘The Talk’ as herself and not as Elizabeth McCord.

Beauty and the Beast
- Ancestors

Crossover with 'The Talk'

- Falling

Crossover with ‘The Talk’

Welcome to the Hall, Julie Chen!  You’ll find your husband Les already here….
