“The View,” a daytime TV pillar and until last month headed by a TV legend, has come undone: ABC and its production partners on the franchise late Thursday fired Sherri Shepherd and Jenny McCarthy, leaving just Whoopi Goldberg, who joined the show in 2007, as the only current castmember.
“The View will be moving in an exciting new direction next season and ABC has made decisions to evolve the show creatively,” said ABC in a statement, first posted on Broadcastingcable.com which broke the story late Thursday.
The firings are immediate. The show is on hiatus but will return July 7.
Who? What? Hiatus? What?
