The groundbreaking talkshow ‘The View’ has been renewed by ABC!
Good news for Raven-Symone, Joy Behar and company below….
The network made the announcement Tuesday and named Candi Carter as the show’s first African American executive producer effective immediately. Carter has served as the interim showrunner on “The View” since September, working with consultant Hilary Estey McLoughlin (a veteran executive from CBS and TelePictures Productions) and co-executive producer Brian Teta (“The Late Show With David Letterman”), to help reboot the talk show, which has struggled since creator Barbara Walters retired in May 2013.
This is awesome news.
Those who have followed the show’s ups and down will agree that its renewal sends a very clear message to those who had hoped it wouldn’t….’The View‘ is here to stay.
We’re glad it is.
For, as a number of its imitators make it their mission to appeal to “simpler” audiences, Whoopi and the gang offer conversations that are just as entertaining as they are thought-provoking and educational.
Our only wish moving forward?
A stronger and bolder Republican voice to restore the balance that existed during Elisabeth Hasslebeck‘s time on the platform.
Catch its new season when it premieres in the Fall of 2016.
