LOS ANGELES (AP) — Sherri Shepherd and Jenny McCarthy are saying goodbye to “The View” next week. ABC says their final appearance as co-hosts of the daytime talk show will air Monday.

A short time after Sherri Shepherd announced her exit from ABC’s The View on Thursday, Jenny McCarthy made her own departure announcement. ABC declined to discuss Shepherd or McCarthy’s status but issued a statement saying change is ahead for the show, which is on hiatus but returns in July to finish out the current season. Whoopi Goldberg is the only host left in place.
It’s the 17th season for The View on ABC and the last with Walters on the air. The only other remaining original cast member, Joy Behar, departed this summer, and Elisabeth Hasselbeck left for Fox News Channel. At The View, they introduced new host Jenny McCarthy (pictured). Over at CBS, the five hosts of The Talk promise a secret-spilling opening week. They will reveal something about themselves they’ve never talked about publicly, or even told each other. It’s a tried-and-true talk-show device to draw audience members closer to the personalities on their TV.
The comedian/actress will replace the departing Elisabeth Hasselbeck on the long-running ABC panel show beginning in the fall.

Jenny McCarthy’s new series, The Jenny McCarthy Show, will premiere on VH1 in the summer/fall of 2012. Still in its early development stages, The Jenny McCarthy Show will “celebrate as well as skewer everyone and everything in pop culture, news, fashion, TV, movies and the Web,” according to VH1. The series will also feature guest […]
Jenny McCarthy, who walked away from an OWN talk show deal two weeks ago, is moving fast toward her own program. The comic taped a secret test show last week in Jerry Springer’s Stamford, Conn. studio that will be shopped to TV stations later this year for a fall 2012 launch, according to sources.
