It’s been reported that the Fuller House actress and the GMA Weekend co-anchor are both in “final negotiations” to join the Season 19 panel alongside moderator Whoopi Goldberg, and newcomers Raven Symone and Michelle Collins! They then brought on Rosie O’Donnell, Rosie Perez, and Nicolle Wallace. Would Sherri Sheperd be returning to the series?
The fired View cast members have reportedly been replaced.
To help make jugging schedules possible for Cameron Bure and Faris, “The View” will be instituting a panel of contributors, who will pop up on the program as substitute co-hosts from time to time.
Variety reports Faris will only be on the weekday show Mondays through Thursdays; she’ll get Fridays off so she can keep her gig at GMA.
Both Cameron Bure and Faris have filled in on “The View” in the past.
The View has gone through a lot of changes in the past year.
Bure is best known for her role as D.J.
However, neither Candace Cameron-Bure nor Paula Faris is expected to be in every episode of The View. Sources told Variety that if Cameron-Bure is too busy for a permanent role, she would sign up for a contributor spot.
Producers are also aware that the chat show has been missing something this most recent season and ratings dropped 16 percent in the second quarter compared to 2014 when Barbara Walters retired.
ABC executives are hoping the former child actress can give a boost to the “The View” by espousing more controversial opinions on the show’s signature Hot Topics segments.
There are two weeks left of season 18, and an announcement regarding on-air talent is not expected before the end of the season.
Cameron Bure is an outspoken conservative Christian who impressed producers when she and co-host Raven-Symone got into a heated argument over an Oregon bakery’s refusal to make a wedding cake for a lesbian couple.
