| by Michael Allen

Deadline.com reports that former 'Saturday Night Live' star Molly Shannon is joining CBS’ daytime talk show 'The Talk' as a guest host for the month of September. Shannon will be joining returning hosts Sara Gilbert, Julie Chen and Sharon Osbourne, as well as new addition Sheryl Underwood.

Osbourne is scheduled to take some time off in the fall, so Shannon may co-host with reality mom Kris Jenner, who will be filling in for Osbourne. Leah Remini and Holly Robinson Peete were reportedly axed by co-host Julie Chen, who is the wife of CBS president Les Mooves.

Shannon recently co-starred in the movie 'Bad Teacher' with Cameron Diaz, the musical 'Promises, Promises' and did an appearance on 'Glee.' She also has a comedy project in development at HBO.
