It’s only been a few days since Sherri Shepherd and Jenny McCarthy were officially dropped from ABC’s daytime series The View. Not one to linger on bad news, ABC has already started looking for replacements for the two cast members.
The View, once a hot program, is now a bit of a hot mess. The past year saw the exits of three prominent members of ABC’s long-running morning talk show, and now veteran panelist Sherri Shepherd will be leaving The View. In addition, the morning show’s new—and controversial—panelist Jenny McCarthy will also be following Shepherd out the door. Unlike Barbara Walters, ABC has ousted Shepherd and McCarthy.
The View has found the first of several replacement hosts the show needs to sign on in the coming year. Earlier we reported that actress and famous vaccine protestor Jenny McCarthy was in talks to join ABC’s daytime talk show, but on Monday, those talks turned to contracts and the actress’ presence as a host on the veteran show starting this September has been confirmed.
After months and months of rumors, Elisabeth Hasselbeck has finally admitted she is leaving ABC’s daytime program, The View. Interestingly, the news broke because Fox News Channel executive vice president of programming Bill Shine announced on Tuesday that the TV personality will be joining the new channel this fall, signing on as a panel member on the network's Fox and Friends. She’ll take over Gretchen Carlson’s slot, as the veteran Fox News TV personality is moving on to star in her own daytime show.
Mostly, Sudeikis was on The View to talk about his new movie Epic, but Walters wouldn’t be a good journalist if she didn’t ask the Saturday Night Live funnyman if he will be returning to the hit program next year. Sudeikis was surprisingly candid in his response, but unfortunately, it seems like he is undecided about returning to the late night program.
Last night, rumors were flying that Barbara Walters would announce her retirement during this morning’s episode of The View on ABC. Walters hopes to retire from the limelight, although she will stay on as an executive producer on The View, a show she created.
Barbara Walters is expected to make an announcement in the coming weeks regarding her retirement. The 84-year-old host of The View and iconic TV personality on ABC is likely to retire in May of 2014, at the end of the TV season. With the year Walters has been having, it’s actually a little surprising the woman will not be leaving the business sooner.
Monday’s episode of The View was a particularly candid one. After an entire weekend of rumors surrounding a few of the show’s leading ladies, Barbara Walters took the opportunity to address Elisabeth Hasselbeck’s rumored departure and Joy Behar opted to speak out about why she was leaving.
The View has actually only gone through ten co-hosts since ABC’s morning program began airing in 1997. That’s some fairly decent consistency from year end and year out, but unfortunately, that will all be changing very soon. On Thursday, Joy Behar announced she was leaving the daytime talk show and on Friday, rumors began circulating that Elisabeth Hasselbeck will be leaving the program, as well.
The View sans Barbara Walters has been missing a little spark. A fall and then a bout of chickenpox kept the 83-year-old star away from the small screen for almost a month. When the woman was initially injured on January 20, the veteran journalist was expected to have to skip President Obama’s second inauguration, but she also hoped to return to work fairly soon. Now, over a month later, she’s ready to get back into the game.
It's not uncommon for things to get heated on The View. After all, you are dealing with five very opinionated women with very different opinions. Throw in a controversial guest and a controversial issue
Not only will President Barack Obama be making an appearance on The View tomorrow, but Barbara Walters will be returning for the occasion. More details and some videos from tomorrow’s special episode of The View ahead!
There is no one like Oprah Winfrey. But in the history of daytime television, there is another personality who had a huge impact with a talk show of her own. As much as I'd like to say it was Ellen DeGeneres, who's seeing a nice ratings surge with her Idol commitments, I'm talking about Rosie O'Donnell
With Elisabeth Hasselbeck out on maternity leave, the new season of The View is set to feature a number of guest-hosts in her place. Today it was announced that Kate Gosselin will co-host on the morning talk show for two episodes.
