For more than a decade, Julie Chen woke up very, very early to be part of "The Early Show."
And on the show on Wedneaday, she did it again -- but for a very different reason. Instead of reporting the news, she stopped by as a guest to talk about her CBS show, "The Talk."
Last fall, Chen moved on to a more civilized time of day, joining Sara Gilbert, Sharon Osborne, Holly Robinson Peete and Leah Remini as co-hosts of the popular talk show.
Check out her welcome back to "The Early Show" with the co-anchors in the video above. She talks about her life in recent months, following the birth of her son Charlie, and her transition into daytime TV.
Chen also talked about how "The Talk" was spoofed on "Saturday Night Live." Check out her reaction to how she was portrayed in the video below.
