What is going on over on The View? Earlier this week, WhoGotTheRole.com reported that Joy Behar has decided to leave the ABC daytime talk series The View after delivering 16 years of no nonsense advice on the show. Well now rumors are swirling that Elizabeth Hasselbeck will also be leaving. Except unlike Behar, who chose to leave by her own accord, it seems according to US Weekly Hasselbeck’s exit may not be voluntary.
According to the report, market research shows that viewers found the “conservative Hasselbeck too extreme and right-wing.” No official comment has been released by ABC. However, when asked to comment on Behar’s departure the network added regarding Hasselbeck “(Hasselbeck) is a valued member of The View” who hold as “long-term contract”.
The question remains now with the definite departure of one cast member and possible departure of another will the producers keep the show as is or should they pull the plug on the long running show after the end of this season?
