What is going on at ‘The View’? Now Elisabeth Hasselbeck is said to be leaving

Celebrities / Film & TV / March 8, 2013


Earlier this week, Joy Behar announced she was leaving ABC’s daytime talk show “The View” after 16 1/2 years.

“You can’t stay forever on a show,” she told “Good Morning America”. “I am graciously exiting stage left. I’ve put in 16 1/2 years and felt the time was right. I want to explore other opportunities.”

Now Us Weekly is reporting that Elisabeth Hasselbeck will not be returning for the next season — but for reasons of an entirely different matter.

A source tells the mag that Hasselbeck is being ousted after market research revealed that she isn’t popular with TV audiences.

“The viewers they polled all said she was too extreme and right wing,” the insider tells Us. “People did not watch the show because of Elisabeth. So they told her yesterday her contract would not be renewed.”

Hasselbeck, 35, joined the cast of the daytime talk show in November 2003 after guest-hosting the show following Lisa Ling’s departure in 2002.

I haven’t watched that stupid show in years….Elisabeth is the only SANE person on that show, as far as I’m concerned! What was it that idiot Sherri said? That the world was flat…..omg!

I quit watching that show after I felt an urgent wish to smash Joy Bahar’s arrogant face with my fist. She’s so very opinionated and hostile toward any guests that do not accept her view as the ONLY view. Good riddance Joy….and yes, Elizabeth H. was the only normal panel member.
