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

The actress is a series regular on CBS' CRIMINAL MINDS, and serves as host of The CW's WHOSE LINE IS IT ANYWAY?

Tyler also directed her first feature film, "Axis", which has played at a number of festivals, and which she said was "something I've always dreamed of doing". She said that the experience made her realize that directing is her passion and she needs to devote her attention to that, which she would not be able to do while working on the daily show.

Her fellow co-hosts wished her well, with Sheryl Underwood getting up and walking around the table to give Tyler a hug.

"It's been the hardest decision of my life and you guys are my family and I love being with you every day".

Tyler will remain part of the cast of Federal Bureau of Investigation procedural Criminal Minds, where she became a series regular this past season.
