After a recent week-long guest hosting stint on CBS’ The Talk, stand-up comedian and actress Aisha Tyler has landed herself a permanent spot on the daily chat show. Her first official day on the job is tomorrow when the show airs 2 pm ET, reports Deadline. Guests on the show tomorrow will include Rebecca Romijn and Kevin Sorbo.

Tyler is the second new addition to The Talk, as comedian Sheryl Underwood joined the show in early September after original hosts Leah Remini and Holly Robinson Peete exited. In addition to Underwood, Tyler joins co-hosts Julie Chen, Sara Gilbert and Sharon Osbourne.

Tyler’s been on top of her game in the last few years, releasing her first hour-long special, DVD and album Aisha Tyler Is Lit: Live At The Fillmore in early 2009. The same year she began to portray Lana Kane in FX’s animated comedy series Archer; new episodes begin airing in January. Tyler also has recently gained success as the host of her own podcast Girl On Guy, which the comedian describes as “a podcast about stuff guys love, brought to you by the ultimate guy’s girl.”
