Big question on the social media circuit is "Who's going to replace ousted View hosts Sherri Shepherd and Jenny McCarthy?" Ready for this? Former Vice Presidential candidate Sarah Palin seems to be throwing her hat in the ring.
In the interview, Palin mentioned that The View might be better if it goes "rogue." Palin said, "Maybe, but the politics would have to be interspersed with a whole lot of fun and real life and inspiration showcasing American work ethic, because those topics are all pretty much the antithesis of today's politics, which I find incorrigibly disastrous!"
She went on to add, "It'd be so much fun to shake it up taking on issues that make audiences objectively consider all sides, and I'd do it with my own real-life groundedness, candor and commonsense that I'm known for."
With Barbara Walters' semi-retirement underway and the pending departures of Shepherd and McCarthy, The View is actively looking for new co-hosts. The program's women co-hosts discuss a variety of political and social issues.
Moderator Whoopi Goldberg is the only host not departing the daytime show. The series also previously included journalist Lisa Ling, television personality Elisabeth Hasselbeck, and comedians Rosie O'Donnell and Joy Behar as co-hosts.
Meantime: Sportsman Channel has picked up a second season of Amazing America With Sarah Palin, the network announced Monday. Palin's program, which has her introducing viewers to the great outdoors as well as the country's unsung heroes, has brought significant attention to the niche cable channel, propelling Sportsman to triple-digit year-over-year growth in households and key male demographics.
