Elisabeth Hasselbeck not happy with The View
Tim Surette
staff

There is some sort of election coming up, and apparently some people are obsessed with talking about it--and in some cases, screaming about it. Television personality (I guess that's what they call it nowadays) and The View cohost Elisabeth Hasselbeck is one of those people, and she goes up against a panel of equally vocal ladies with completely opposite views five times a week.

So it's no surprise that she's ticked off.

Walters denies The View tiff a ratings stunt

Barbara Walters, creator and co-executive producer of ABC's talk show The View, denied that this week's heated on-air clash over Iraq between Rosie O'Donnell and Elisabeth Hasselbeck was a ratings stunt.

"Aunt Barbara is back, and there will be peace in the kingdom," Walters said Thursday as she returned to the daytime series a day after the emotional on-air exchange between cohosts O'Donnell and Hasselbeck.

A number of TV commentators have suggested the debate, some of which was shown in split screen, was orchestrated as a May "sweeps" gimmick to boost the program's ratings.

But Walters said such a notion was "just absurd," adding, "The highest ratings we've had for The View this whole year were in February, when there were no feuds."

O'Donnell was absent from Thursday's broadcast, fueling speculation that she might leave the show ahead of her previously planned ...

Rosie O'Donnell to leave The View in mid-June

Rosie O'Donnell will leave as cohost of the ABC talk show The View in mid-June after nine months, capping a controversial run on daytime television for the provocative actress and comedienne.

O'Donnell and ABC were unable to come to a contractual agreement, O'Donnell said on the show Wednesday, though she told viewers she planned to return as a guest for special occasions.

The lesbian activist thrived on skewering powerful men such as real estate baron Donald Trump and Fox News Channel commentator Bill O'Reilly from her seat on The View, a panel hosted by four women discussing news and gossip.

But off-camera, her sometimes outrageous comments made life difficult for Barbara Walters, the show's creator, coexecutive producer, and cohost, who brought O'Donnell onto the panel in September to fill a vacancy created when Meredith Vieira left to cohost NBC's Today show.

The View turns chilly

Star Jones Reynolds, cohost of The View, was barred Wednesday from the show she helped build into a daytime television fixture a day after catching her colleagues and the network off guard by announcing plans to leave in July.

The normally chatty, congenial show turned abruptly frosty as lead host and executive producer Barbara Walters opened the broadcast by saying Reynolds "will no longer be on this program, except for some shows that have been prerecorded."

In a glimpse of behind-the-scenes friction that is rare on network TV, Walters said she and ABC were surprised by Reynolds' announcement--which came two days earlier than planned--and by her complaints to People magazine that she had been fired.

"So it is becoming uncomfortable for us to pretend that everything is the same at this table," Walters said on the air.

Walters told Reuters that ABC had decided last year that Reynolds should go ...
