Busy Aisha Tyler says goodbye to 'The Talk' after 6 years

Richard Kachkar

The busy talk show host, who has been a regular on the CBS daytime show for the past six seasons, has chose to move on from her role as a co-host.

In addition to "The Talk", the 46-year-old Tyler has a recurring role on "Criminal Minds" and hosts The CW's rebooted version of "Whose Line Is It Anyway?".

"At the end of this season I'm going to be leaving the show..."

She did say she plans on coming back as an occasional guest host and to promote her future projects.

And the actress indeed has a very busy schedule, as she lends her voice to the hit animated show Archer, stars as Dr. Tara Lewis in Criminal Minds, and hosts Whose Line Is It Anyways.

Not only is Tyler a show host and an actor, but she is also a director.

Of her latest gig as the director of a feature film, she added: "I knew that was what I wanted to do the rest of my life, what I wanted to put my energy into".

A replacement was not announced for Tyler on the show, which shoots during all but one month every year. I have had an awesome six years with you guys.

Tyler explained that she's just too busy with three other shows and her burgeoning directing career.

CBS didn't immediately announce who might replace Tyler on the show that includes co-hosts Julie Chen, Sara Gilbert, Sharon Osbourne and Sheryl Underwood. She launched a Kickstarter campaign previous year to fund her feature directorial debut, "Axis", about an Irish actor, set on the morning he is set to star in a career-changing blockbuster film.

Before Aisha made the live official announcement, she hinted about her departure on Twitter when she wrote about change. Sometimes it's painful. Sometimes it's attractive.

The Talk airs on CBS weekdays at 2 p.m. ET.

"Saying goodbye to Aisha is a bittersweet moment for all of us at CBS Daytime and The Talk..."
