Seemingly in answer to ABC's The View, CBS is currently crafting an all-female talk show to replace As The World Turns.

The series is the brain-child of Sara Gilbert (Roseanne), and will star Julie Chen (Big Brother), Holly Robinson Peete (Celebrity Apprentice, Hangin' with Mr. Cooper), Sharon Osbourne (America's Got Talent), Leah Remini (King of Queens) and Marissa Jaret Winokur (Hairspray) as her co-hosts on the series that will "examine topical events and contemporary issues through the eyes of mothers," according tothe CBS press release confirming the pick-up.

I say "seemingly," but in truth, the series sounds exactly like a younger (aka no Barbara Walters or Joy Behar), Hasselbeck-less version of The View, just with a more direct mommy-slant.  Beyond the expected guest interviews with entertainers and newsmakers," the intrepid celeb-moms will also shoot "live remotes from the field," and broadcast "personal home footage," presumably of their adventures in mommy-dom.

What's exciting about the series is the combination of funny (Gilbert), loud-mouthed (Osbourne, Remini) and theatrical (Winokur) personalities they've got signed on. Plenty of potty-training talk is sure to go on--but plenty of potty-mouthed tirades will ensue, too. We hope.

Sounds like Gilbert and CBS have got the formula all figured out, but one essential element is yet missing from the pitch: What to call this daily morning mom-fest?

How about ...

Mothertalkers
Mo' Mommies, Mo' Problems
The Mom-nagerie
A Better View


Wow. I am bad at this!

The best idea I was able to come up with was "The Mom-ent," which is still admittedly terrible. I hope you--and CBS--can come up with better.

Have your own ideas what this show should be called--and will you watch? Shout out your mom-inspired titles in the comments!
