‘The View’ Hosts to Remain Status Quo For Upcoming 27th Season

There won’t be revolving door at the table, at least that’s the plan for The View’s upcoming 27th season starting on September 5th.

Returning as hosts will be lead moderator Whoopi Goldberg who will be joined by Joy Behar, Sunny Hostin, Sara Haines, Alyssa Farah Griffin and Ana Navarro.

The long-running morning talk show is coming off a 2022-2033 television season ranking No 1 among all daytime talks shows in households and total viewers.  The View averaged 2.375 million total viewers for the season, per Nielsen.  The talker edged out Live with Kelly and Mark in the syndicated and news program categories.  With Mark Consuelos (ex-Mateo, All My Children) added to the show back in April, the husband and wife dup averaged 2.293 million total viewers.

The View’s executive producer, Brian Teta told Variety in a statement: “Television audiences have changed drastically since the show began in 1997. You have to be ‘can’t miss television’ to break through, and The View is always at its best when it’s a reflection of the conversations our viewers are having at home. This combination of co-hosts is very special. They are having fun at the table, but they also are talking about important issues, reacting to breaking news in real time and having tough conversations. They have terrific chemistry, and everyone in our audience can find a perspective to connect with. Now we are heading into a presidential election cycle, when The View is historically at its strongest, and I’m very excited for what’s to come in season 27.”

Look for season 27 to be highly-focused on the lead-up to the 2024 presidential election, since so many candidates vying for the greatest office in the land use the talk show platform to attempt to get out their key messages to voters while on the campaign trails as The View has a dedicated reach with female viewership.

So, are you glad to hear that Whoopi, Joy, Sunny, Ana, Alyssa and Sarah are all coming back as co-hosts of The View? Do you prefer the conversations from this group of women as opposed to previous seasons? Weigh-in via the comment section below.

Im not a fan of Sunny, she is condescending to anyone who doesn’t share her opinion, she’s got to go.

We love Sunny

I still really enjoy all the ladies of The View.

Interesting that a show that continues to plummet in the ratings (now at 2.3M viewers on a good day) would remain status quo. And they revealed their real intentions for the 27 season: to focus on the 2024 election. OMG. They identified the problem as the show is nothing more than an awful democratic and woke convention. The View is a bust.

Okay, Meghan. But actually the ratings have been soaring.

Actually soaring from what? So the show has fell from 2.58M in 2020 to 2.3M viewers in 2023. That is NOT soaring. Just stating the facts for talk shows that don’t entertain but go political.

The View is under ABC News, that’s why they talk politics. The ratings are great, 2.3m viewers is nothing to sneeze at.

Worse show on TV. A bunch of liberal losers. One sided, biased points of view. Whoopi and Joy are terrible, They are afraid to have another point of view on that show.

New Details Emerge in Fatal Shooting of General Hospital’s Johnny Wactor; Was Protecting Female Co-Worker From Armed Car Thieves

The brother of Johnny Wactor (ex-Brando Corbin) has come forward with some new information on the act of violence that took the life of the General Hospital favorite on Saturday May 25th in the wee hours of the morning in downtown Los Angeles.

As valiant as man as Johnny was to all those who know and loved him, he was through and through that man till the very end. According to Grant Wactor, Johnny actually shielded a female co-worker at the time of the crime before he was fatally shot.  Three men were trying to steal Wactor’s catalytic converter from his vehicle, one of which fired the shot that killed the former GH star.

According to a new report from the Daily Mail, Wactor was leaving his side job as a bartender at a downtown LA rooftop bar with a female colleague at around 3:25am when he saw the three men near his vehicle at West Pico Boulevard and South Hope Street.

Believing he was being towed, he approached the men to try to discuss it. One of the men then looked up and pointed a gun at Wactor, who put his body in front of his female co-worker as he was shot. Police say, the three men were all wearing masks, and then fled the scene in another car.  The suspects currently remain at-large.

Grant commented on his brother’s last act of bravery, “We’re Southern, born and raised, and we would never let a female walk to their car by herself.” He added that Johnny, “Thought his truck was being towed. So he said something to the guys, like, ‘Hey, are you towing?’ And then once he turned around, he saw what was happening and he put his coworker behind him. And that’s when they shot him.

Sadly, Grant revealed, Johnny was shot in the chest, and that Johnny and his co-worker had to park about two blocks from the restaurant, so they were walking to their cars after they finished their shift when the incident unfolded.

Grant shared that he hopes justice will be served and the men are caught, “I hope they are able to track the people who did this. I am glad in a way that this is getting the publicity so that it could shed some light that things need to change, or find ways so that no one else has to experience this – whether it be a murder or being at the wrong place at the wrong time.”

In what has already been horrific that we lost Johnny to a senseless act of gun violence over an attempted theft, learning that the actor died right after protecting somebody else, only reinforces the kind of man Wactor was to all those who knew and loved him.
