Is ‘The View’ Canceled: Will ABC Talk Show End After Nearly 3 Decades?

Off The Record

Is ‘The View’ Canceled: Will ABC Talk Show End After Nearly 3 Decades?

Is The View really no longer going to air?

The famous talk show has been the site of both touching conversations and sickening stories over the years. The View has given us memes, popular moments, and more.

Now, there is a persistent rumor that ABC is ending the afternoon show.

Is it truly over? Why?

How long has ‘The View’ been on?

When The View first aired on ABC in 1997, it was created and led by the famous journalist Barbara Walters.

There are women of all ages on the daytime talk show. Some of them are experts in their areas and some are just well-known faces, but they all have something to say about “hot topics” like politics, culture, and more.

In August, The View will have been on for 27 years. It has been on ABC’s afternoon programming block for almost 30 years.

‘The View’ is still loved by many.

People supposedly watch ABC’s long-running afternoon talk show to hear opinions from famous people, real-life stories, and even legal advice.

There are a lot of different points of view on The View, from journalists to famous artists to lawyers to reality TV stars and nepotism babies. It matches the name in a way.

Some people might say that the fact that the group is all women is just a trick. Some people would say it’s nice to not hear men’s thoughts on current events for a few minutes every day, since men’s voices tend to dominate so many areas of life, entertainment, and society.

The hosts of “The View” are in the news, and viewers are nervous.

Barbara Walters was clearly a living hero, but other famous women have joined her at the table since then.

During her time on the show, Rosie O’Donnell was a real figure that people will remember. Sherri Shepherd used to be on the panel, but now she has her own show. She took Wendy Williams’s time spot.

As we said, memes and popular moments have been made by people who are mostly known for their time on The View. This is very clear in the clip of Ana Navarro above.

A lot of the time, short clips from the talk show “break containment” and become very famous with a lot of people, not just the older women who are supposed to watch them. Especially when the guests fight or act badly.

From 2003 to 2013, Elizabeth Hasselbeck was on The View. After all, she didn’t win her Emmy Award for being on Survivor. She quickly became well-known for giving, um, bad takes on a number of events.

Hasselbeck gave the show a certain mood. Since then, the network has tried to copy her part by casting other “villains” (for lack of a better word) like Meghan McCain and Candace Cameron Bure to cause trouble.

To be clear, we’re not talking about conservative hosts here. They are known to be right, like Nicolle Wallace, who worked in the White House for George W. Bush, and Jedediah Bila, Ana Navarro, and Abby Huntsman. They never played the “bad guys” like some others did, though.

Running low on villains may be a problem for ‘The View’

Meghan McCain played the main bad guy on The View for many years. She would huff meanly while other hosts talked, which was rude and childish when she didn’t agree with them.

It was clear that a lot of people on social media wanted ABC to fire her. McCain told everyone in July 2021 that she was leaving because her family was moving.

Some people cheered, but we couldn’t help but wonder if it’s good for the show to have someone so dramatic leave—someone who’s right just enough of the time to keep you wondering but is so wrong most of the time. The View doesn’t stay in business by upholding moral and behavioral standards; it does so by getting lots of viewers.

Has ‘The View’ really been canceled?

There were reports that The View would end in the summer of 2023. The reports have been going on since 2024 and might not stop for months or even years.

As of March 2024, though, there are no signs that the reports are true, either from behind the scenes or from public statements.

ABC hasn’t dropped The View yet, and they probably don’t plan to any time soon.
