The hosts of CBS’s The Talk donned their best purple duds for Spirit Day today.  They join CBS programs Elementary and The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson in taking part in the day, as well as other CBS talent tweeting their support.

In addition to the ladies, guest Peter Krausse (Parenthood, Six Feet Under) also wore a purple tie. Out host Sara Gilbert explained how important it was to take part in the day, how much things have improved since she was growing up, and even gave a shout out to other CBS shows participating in Spirit Day. 

The show and its hosts also took to Twitter talk about Spirit Day.

As seen in the above video, earlier this week the cast and crew of Elementary took part in a group photo shoot for Spirit Day, including stars Lucy Liu, Jonny Lee Miller, and Aidan Quinn.

Since yesterday, 2 Broke Girls star Beth Behrs has sent out several tweets, including one of herself wearing purple (with an orange hue).

Also tweeting a picture of herself in purple was NCIS star Pauley Perrette, who earlier this month told Jeff Probst why she won’t get married until Prop 8 is repealed and who will be seen in an upcoming GLAAD PSA.

Partners costar Sophia Bush tweeted.

 

And out actress Kirsten Vangsness of Criminal Minds sent out her own #SpiritDay message to her followers and an adorable childhood photo from a time when she too was being bullied.

 

Local CBS stations WLNY and WBCS also took part, where host John Elliot and Carolina Bermudez talking about Spirit Day on the show.
