On the heels of International Women’s Day, it only seems fitting to fete a milestone achievement for hit CTV talk show The Social (Monday through Friday at 1 p.m. ET on CTV), and the powerhouse female hosts who get us tuning in day after day thanks to their wit, insight, compassion and down-to-earth vibes. Seriously, how many times have you cried from laughter while watching these ladies live on air?
Today marks the 1,000th show for The Social (watch it today at 1 p.m. on CTV!), a huge feat for any television program. But really, is it any surprise that the show has seen such success? Hosts Cynthia Loyst, Melissa Grelo, Lainey Lui, Marci Ien and Jessica Allen make viewers feel like they’re spending an hour with their bffs every afternoon, discussing a variety of topics including important issues like women’s rights and the #MeToo movement, figuring out how the heck to feed your family on the cheap, and debating whether or not Blake Shelton is actually the ‘Hottest Man Alive’.
All five superstar hosts were asked to reflect and relive a memorable show moment from the past five years, and as one would expect, the retrospective clips are hilarious and endearing.
Cynthia Loyst’s Jason Momoa dreams come true
It’s hard to find someone who doesn’t have a crush on Jason Momoa. Cynthia’s, however, is a lot more public than most.
Marci Ien channels her inner Rihanna
You can’t threaten Marci with a good time! Here she is rocking out to Rihanna’s Work, holding the mic like a total boss.
Jessica Allen shares a moment with Sterling K Brown
Sometimes talk shows are less talk and more dance. Jessica got a quick lesson in the subtleties of breaking it down from actor and bonafide hunk Sterling K Brown.
Lainey Lui nails a Mariah Carey impersonation
Being fed grapes by a shirtless man on live TV? All in a hard day’s work for Lainey, who is clearly a natural at the Mariah head tilt.
Melissa Grelo joins the motherhood club
We’re torn between crying with happiness for Melissa and crying at how sweet it is that she makes this about big-hearted Lainey. No wonder we love you, Mel.
Today, we raise a mimosa (we said ‘mimosa’, Cynthia, not ‘Momoa’) to these highly talented women, and all of the crew behind the scenes, too: here’s to spending another 1,000 awesome episodes together.
The Social airs live at 1pm EST Monday through Friday on CTV and again at 2pm on CTV2.
