Throughout the week, Joy has been very casual and non-chalant about her departure, telling her co-hosts not to cry and playing down the sappy goodbyes. Barbara Walters, the creator and other original cast member of “The View,” actually said her goodbyes on Wednesday knowing that she would not be in the studio on Thursday.
Truth be told, working on “The View” was a producer dream of mine. It always looked like they were having fun and the show airtime is perfect for their audience, not too early and not too late in the day. I did get to work with Barbara Walters and Bill Geddie in 2000 on the pilot for Iyanla Vanzant’s talk show and boy do they run a tight ship.
One by one, ladies over the years have left “The View.” Some by choice and others, not so much. With every vacant seat, viewers were left to wonder who could fill the chair and compliment the lively ladies’ morning conversations and interviews.
In the almost 17 years on air, the replacements have all brought their specific uniqueness and sometimes controversial point of view to the table. Some people fit better than others.

“The View” is the fourth-longest running national daytime talk show in history. There has always been five women at the table. Right now, it looks like they will be starting the next season with only four women at the table.
