THE VIEW Taken Over By ABC News! Leaving General Hospital, The Chew, Incoming Tyra Banks Show As All That's Left Of ABC Daytime!

Courtesy/ABC

Courtesy/ABC

A bit of shocker via Variety!  The entertainment news outlet is reporting that ABC’s morning talker, The View is now going to fall under the auspices of ABC News and no longer be a under the ABC Daytime wing.  That means that of the once strong ABC Daytime programming block, only The Chew and General Hospital remain.

According to the report: Starting today, “The View will be part of the non-fiction branch of programming within ABC News which produces the documentary series NY Med. The talk show will now be in the growing portfolio of ABC News president James Goldston, Ben Sherwood’s (incoming ABC/Disney Television President) right-hand man who helped revamp Good Morning America.  It seems that ABC’s daytime executives are clearly losing oversight of the show.

The View which re-tooled itself this year bringing back Rosie O’Donnell, and adding Nicolle Wallace and Rosie Perez along with the longest on-air ranking host, Whoopi Goldberg have faced lackluster ratings since it bowed in September.

The report also goes on to say: “Within ABC there’s been conflict about which side has been calling the shots on “The View” this season.”  The go on to say “The shakeup poses many questions about what sources describe as dysfunction inside ABC Daytime, which was folded into ABC’s entertainment division in 2011, and has a sparse plate that includes an upcoming Tyra Banks talk show, The Chew and General Hospital.  One of the chief recent disappointments was Katie, the much-hyped Katie Couric 2012 talk show that hemorrhaged millions and was axed after two seasons.”

So will The View become more serious or lighter under ABC News? Will this help save the struggling talker  What do you think about what has happened to the once almighty ABC Daytime?  Weigh-in below!

I’m just happy that ABC cancelled Katie Couric, or did she decide to leave-I can’t remember. I really tried to watch a few of her shows-she always appeared fake to me. I miss when I was little and having Ryan’s Hope, Loving, AMC, OLTL, and GH on in the living room. I used to love Ryan’s Hope and Loving.

ABC is my favorite station, but when they took off One Life to Live and All My Children, they made a huge mistake! Millions of viewers left them! Their night time line up is terrific for each night, but I’m not on board with removing/revamping The View! I’ve been watching since Day 1 of this show and even though many of the hosts were tossed or left on their own, I still stayed with it. Put the soaps back on and stop with the game shows and reality crap!

Amen brothers and sisters to soap loyalty. After cancelling AMC and OLTL, my family swore off giving ABC any consideration when it comes to watching anything besides GH. Reality TV, profit motives…good grief! – too many cheap shows lacking plot, good writing and acting skills. ABC has gotten so trashy, no shows with heart, just violence and pushing exposed flesh. Cheap.

abc – lowercase letters – is just plain stupid. they had a great thing going with the afternoon soap schedule, but wanted to improve for the new generation of viewers. well its been three years – and the results? less viewers – i wonder what they learned? nothing – instead they decide to add yet another hour of ‘news with a view’ to their schedule.. i’d rather watch an actual cable news network that knows what they are doing and is fair and balanced. so long abc – it was nice knowing you…. looks like we will have to look… Read more »

The Chew is making more money for the network than AMC and OLTL. They have as much viewers as GH without the inflated salaries and production costs. Think ABC will keep trying to bring on another “The Chew” type show over ever bringing back AMC and OLTL . That is IF ABC EVER gets the rights back! Think the genre of the soap is not going to last much longer on the networks . Soap genre seems to be excelling on the web! Dallas reboot on TNT was a beacon of hope for the soap genre survival but that show… Read more »

Who watches the chew its the worst cooking show ever, its sad that when it premiered it had to run into General Hospital time slot for about 1 to 2 minutes. That’s how they were getting their ratings because of the General Hospital fans would tune in at 2 pm to their soap. No one likes the cast, they had to pay the audience just to sit in and watch the show because it was doing so bad in the ratings. ABC just needs to bring back AMC & OLTL .

Well I for one LOVE the Chew! They have such great chemistry, I learn a lot and they are just so entertaining.

So happy GH is doing well it has been my favorite show since I was a kid.

Sorry,but never liked the chew from day one. Never had any interest in cooking shows. Don’t find them entertaining one bit! I rather watch my stories any day. When GH is over each day ,then I watch one of my DVD movies. ABC had to ruin a good thing!!!

Roxy W.

We call it “Phew” or “Spew”, because we’re trying not to puke at the thought of that show! Daytime TV is for drama. If you you want cooking , watch cable. I’ve boycotted ABC for three years now; except for GH. I was watching “The View” from to time, because of Whoopi, but not after the first new show. The personalities don’t click well, and who needed another Hasselbeck ever! Now iI watch two soaps from CBS, and GH.

I agree losing it’s daytime shows like AMC and OLTL was a big mistake.. the loyal watchers cancelled TWO shows already including that awful Katie show.. The View is on it’s way out in my opinion. Firing those who people watched and replacing them with others they THINK people want was bad. LONG live SOAPS including GH… TYRA will go down too.. didn’t she TRY a show already and it fail?? I think SO.. live and learn ABC.

Never liked Sherri Sheherd, she was always doing most of the talking . Always talking about Jeffrey. And the eating segments she was always the first one there, filling her mouth up with food. The only one I really liked was Whoopi. But I stoped watching the view for five years now. Lost interest. Prefer
watching my stories over talk shows.

Hi Rebecca, A while back, I remember when Prince was on The View. When Prince walked onto The View’s stage, Sherri IMMEDIATELY started behaving like a lovesick idiot (or whatever) in front of that poor man. She said all kinds of crazy things to Prince which ended up being VERY INAPPROPRIATE on-air. Get this: Before the segment, Barbara Walters pulled Sherri aside and told Sherri to BEHAVE HERSELF on-air. Needless to say, Sherri didn’t listen. Anyway, about 10 minutes or so into the segment, Prince had had enough and very quickly left the stage. After the episode, Sherri caught MAJOR… Read more »

Jaybird:

Interesting! When Russell Brand came on The View about 2 years or ago he engaged in his usual weird Brand kind of flirting. Sherri became all flustered and bent-out-shape and thought he was really hitting on him. She didn’t seem to get his particular brand of humor. Also, Brand was engage to Katie Perry at the time and I really doubt he would jeopardize that by fooling around with that fool.
In any case, interesting that Sherri went nuts over Prince but couldn’t handle Russell Brand’s harmless flirting.

Hi Rebecca, 1. Y-E-S. I mean…looking back on it now, those producers of The View were clearly OUT OF THEIR MINDS when they hired that ANNOYING HAS-BEEN Jenny McCarthy. YIKES!!!!! Anyway, Jenny is no longer there, Thank God!!!!! 2. Rebecca…check this out: Not too long ago, Jenny married actor Donnie Wahlberg (the younger brother of actor Mark Wahlberg). Anyway, supposedly, Mark DOES N-O-T LIKE Jenny AT ALL and he has been VERY VOCAL about this. Who can blame him??? H-o-n-e-y…I would feel the same way.

Hi Harry,

I remember that episode. Looking back on it now, apparently, Sherri hated being caught off-guard like that. Harry, I gotta tell ya’…as an actor, Russell Brand is not my CUP OF TEA. But…I found Russell’s segment to be pretty LOL hilarious. BTW, I once read somewhere that Russell Brand is a NOTORIOUS FLIRT when it comes to the ladies. He probably still is.

ABC does not own the rights to AMC or OLTL… and the costs are too high for production!! IT is also not fair to the actors -since they do not pay the same as they used to. Think they should cut GH back to a half hour and what they should do is try a concept show combining the soap actors into a new combined show.

GH is the ONLY show on abc worth watching! I watch Dr Phil, but I wouldn’t lose sleep if it was cancelled. They made a major mistake when they cancelled AMC/OLTL. They will never have the viewership they had with any of the crappy shows they think we will watch.

Honestly, I haven’t watched the View in years and the reason- I don’t care for the show or any of the hosts they had/have. All I can say is that they better keep their hands of General Hospital. The Chew has grown on me but those are the only shows that keep me watching ABC Daytime. If they take them off, I will tune out!

Why would you even watch “The Chew”? There are about 500 alternatives to watch on cable.

And even if you don’t have cable, I would imagine turning the TV off when “The Chew” comes on, would be more entertaining.

The View has lost viewers because a lot of people, myself included, vowed not to watch it with Rosie O’Donnell returning. We have stuck to our guns. Too bad because it was once a great show. Even Whoopie can’t overcome this major bad decision on the producers’ or networks’ part.

Think they needed to bring in Penny Marshall with Whoopi and Rosie! I think she would be the perfect “referee” or give the show more of a balance! Penny, Whoopi and Rosie with an alternating guest 4 host! That would be magic !!

No, if you read The Variety article it says that this season has barely raised the ratings from the lackluster ratings from last season when Jenny McCarthy and Sheri Shepard. This season the ratings have risen, albeit not enough apparently. I stopped watching when Sheri of the world-is-flat club, and Jenny, of the ignorant but dangerous, do-not-inoculate-your-child club dominated the show with their silly and juvenile chatter. They never discussed important issues of the day–it all focused on celebrity gossip and on their own boring lives. Who cares? Whoopi finally looks happy and relaxed, Rosie is tempering her view point… Read more »

ABC daytime is sure not what it used to be. For about 30 years I never watched anything on CBS or NBC because of ABC’s strong lineup. There was no reason to turn the channel. But now…they have forced me to explore my options. I never in a million years thought I would be watching Days of Our Lives…but I am now. My advice: return to the glory days of ABC. Bring back OLTL and AMC and go all out…make ABC daytime the place to be again.

I am going to disagree with you–slightly. I think you’re right that there’s no direct connection. But I do think there were probably some people who watched a full day of ABC, starting with The View and through the noon news (or whatever local programming) and on to AMC, OLTL, and GH. Some of those may have gone away when AMC and OLTL were cancelled–they were soap viewers primarily but tuned in to other programming just because they wanted something on and it might as well be ABC because that’s what they’d be watching in a few hours anyway.

OLTL was a fail, thanks to RC/FV. Now they are destroying GH, systematically. No respect for vets, lousy,lame s/l. They are their own biggest loudest fans. As for The View, aka The Shrew, it is long overdue for cancellation. A disgrace to women everywhere. AMC should return if they are smart. And DOOL is far better than what GH has to offer, in spite of how they manipulate ratings to make it look otherwise.

Michael (not Fairman)

Michael (not Fairman)

Whatever you want to say about GH (and I might agree given what a mess it’s become), in no way was OLTL a fail under RC and FV. It went out on a high note, with ratings on the rise (and better than GH’s at the time) and the show in pretty good shape in terms of storylines, etc.

Seems like a mistake on ABC’s part. The View has been doing worse this season since they tried to make it “newsy-er” so they’re going to put it in the news division? Yikes. The View would do better lighter like a combo of lifestyle, gossip, and celebrity – think a mashup of the Chew, Wendy Williams, and Rachael Ray. Sorry ABC, but nobody wants to hear these 4 “great minds” pontificate on the issues of our day.

Yup, they failed with “GMA in the Afternoon” (I mean, wasn’t the first mistake not calling it Good Afternoon America? lol) so now they’re trying to turn the View into a version of that.

ABC Daytime ratings debacle is a result of Frons and Sweeney screwing up big time by canceling AMC & OLTL. I still only watch GH on ABC and I’m sure most AMC & OLTL’s loyal viewers are doing the same. Since GH moved back to 3p the Spew’s ratings have fallen. Tyra Banks’ show will try to steal GH’s ratings by running into GH. If Ben Sherwood has a brain he will apologize to the soap fans, admit ABC was wrong and bring back AMC & OLTL.

Add to that the abysmal failures of this network when it tried to replace our beloved AMC and OLTL with news/talk shows. Everything has failed – from GAA to The Revolution to Katie and any others, ad nauseum.

I agree with you Sue. I don’t hardly watch the view anymore. I don’t like it with these new people, do not care for either Rosie or Nicole. Very boring. Hardly ever watch. I love Barbara Walters, Joy Behar, and Sherry Shepard, even Jenny McCarthy was better than the ones they have on now. I could not stand Elisabeth Hasslebach, but she did keep the show interesting. I also miss the soaps. They should try a new soap with a combination of OLTL and AMC. They could call it Llanview v Pine valley, or Two Towns.

I agree with another commenter ABC better leave their hands of GH. That is the only ABC show left to watch in the afternoon. I watched Katie some days as it was fairly good.

Some soap fans remain in denial. First off all The View has nothing whatsoever to do with soaps, it sinks or swims on its own. And they are in complete and total denial about the success of the Chew. It gets better ratings than the old soaps and it makes a ton of money. The show is actually pretty good, the hosts are great. I rarely have time to watch anything during the day but when I catch it I enjoy the Chew.
And the canceled soaps are not returning.

ABC had the BEST daytime lineup and ratings until they cancelled AMC & OLTL. They got just what they deserve.

When they ‘offed’ these soaps, I ‘offed’ their network from my viewing.

They should bring back these two soaps as close to their original format as possible and apologize to their fan base for their mistake.

Nicole
Guest
Nicole

What fan base? The reality is that networks care about 18 -49 and 25-54 demos. If you are not in either category you are not their targett audience. Since soaps trend towards the 55+ set they won’t come back.

They are too expensive and do not deliver the target demo.

Soaps in their current form will not survive much longer. It will take someone to revamp the genre to attract a new generation.

Well when I think of daytime t.v. i think of DRAMA…..THE SOAPS SHOULD HAVE NEVER BEEN CANCELLED!!!!!! The View, General Hospital, and Modern Family is the only thing I watch on this network. If they would bring back the soaps and add newer dramas then the network would WORK!!!!

I have to agree with Christne, ABC did have the best daytime lineup and ratings ntil they cancelled AMC and OLTL. It is so obvious that ABC is not listening to the people that watch their station affiliate. We are the ones at home all day watching television. You took away what we enjoyed watching and told us to like it or leave it. Close to 100% chose to leave it and watch something else. ABC got what they deserved!!!!!

I hardly watch the view since Barbara Walters, Sherry Shepard, and Joy Behar left. THEY KEPT it interesting. I think Rosie O’Donnel is trying to take over the show> Sorry about my punctuation , my computer is acting up.
I think Rosie Perez and Nicole Warner are boring. The view needs more life. Whoppi is ok.

Sadly it is too late to bring back AMC and OLTL. Most of the actors are on other shows, they have moved on. Maybe the could start a new soap? The talk shows obviously are not working. The cast of the Chew isn’t really that bad but, the show has no direction from the few episodes I have seen. Those shows belong on the Cooking Channel or Food Network, as that was would the channel was launched for.

Where’s Tadd Martin? I miss Michael Knight so much. It’s like I lost touch with my brother–I grew up with that character.

The view is no more of a news program than FOX Propaganda News..
both are for entertainment not actually reporting news..

It’s time for the rabid soap fans to realize that AMC and OLTL are never coming back on ABC. Ever. I used to be a soap fan but I am not anymore because I have been completely embarrassed and mortified to be one after watching certain groups harass everyone and anyone they think is in their way with ‘tasks’ that disrupt businesses. I have seen Facebook soap group ‘leaders’ put leading a soap group on their resume, as if its a valid job. I have seen the bullying toward people who disagree. I have seen the useless Twitter campaigns that… Read more »

Unfortunately, I have to say I agree. I loved OLTL for many, many years, but it was ruined at the end. The remaining soaps are down right bad – poorly produced, poorly written, poorly acted. People hang on for their faves and out of nostalgia, I understand; but they are objectively bad. ABC are never bringing back OLTL or AMC; and frankly, as a fan of both, I’m glad, because the network would just end up ruining them (again.) Daytime dramas are on their way out. All of network TV needs a revamp, since people simply don’t watch their TV… Read more »

Anyone who thinks this means ABC will bring back AMC and OLTL, plain and simple won’t happen. If The View doesnt improve most likely they will expand Good Morning America to 3 hours then give The View slot back to the affiliates. There has been a lot of talk that ABC doesnt want to program daytime any longer and this is just one more reason for them to continue that route.
