It’s been a whopping seven years since larger-than-life personality Rosie O’Donnell has been a part of “The View,” but executive producers Barbara Walters and Bill Geddie announced today that the actress/comedian is returning to the popular talk show!
Friday, February 7 marks O’Donnell’s appearance alongside current co-hosts Walters, Whoopi Goldberg, Sherri Shepherd and Jenny McCarthy. As fans may recall, the current “The Fosters” actress previously held the position as moderator for “The View” from 2005-2007 but left under less-than-friendly circumstances (both a contract dispute with ABC and her inability to get along with former co-host Elisabeth Hasselbeck played out onscreen).

In February, it was announced that former “All My Children” star Josh Duhamel (ex-Leo du Pres) and wife Fergie (real name Stacy Ferguson) were expecting their first child. On “Live with Kelly and Michael,” Duhamel revealed the sex of the baby!
Hallmark may have decided not to renew “Marie” for a second season, but that doesn’t mean that the talk show isn’t airing can’t-miss material! In fact, there’s a “The Young and the Restless” bonanza happening, with the show not only featuring Beth Maitland (Traci Abbott) on today’s episode, but also planning an appearance by Catherine Bach (Anita Lawson) for tomorrow!
As we previously reported, daytime personality Meredith Vieira has a new talk show debuting next fall, and NBC just announced that it’s been sold to 10 of its owned television stations. Is your market included?
On the Friday, June 14 edition of “The Talk,” Daytime Entertainment Emmy Awards co-host and Showbiz Tonight host, A.J. Hammer, stopped by CBS’ “The Talk” to chat with the ladies (Sharon Osbourne, Aisha Tyler, Sheryl Underwood, Julie Chen and Sara Gilbert) about daytime biggest event!
“The 40th Annual Daytime Entertainment Emmy Awards” airs LIVE from the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills, CA tonight at 8:00 PM ET on HLN.
According to a report by FOX News, Disney/ABC Domestic Television might be looking to replace Katie Couric and her talker “Katie” just as the show gets ready to wrap its first season in July.
“While all television is going through a difficult time and programming is having a hard time finding its niche, Katie’s new talk show does not live up its expectations,” a source closely connected to the ABC show told FOX411’s Pop Tarts column. “Whatever constraints Katie experienced anchoring ‘Evening News’ [it is] certainly taking its toll, and her return to daytime has backfired.”
Daytime legend Susan Lucci, who portrayed Erica Kane on all 41 years of “All My Children,” will be appearing on the Monday, February 25 edition of ABC’s “The View.” The actress is expected to sit down with the ladies to discuss her new Lifetime series “Devious Maids,” and the second season of her Investigation Discovery series “Deadly Affairs.”
According to a report by NBC New York and Gothamist.com, a staff member of ABC’s “The Chew” was murdered on Thursday, January 10 after being shot in the stomach near Macon Street and Throop Avenue in the Bed Stuy section of Brooklyn. Identified as Ivan Giovanettina, 41, the prop supervisor for the daytime talk show was taken to Kings County Hospital and pronounced dead. A recording of the suspected shooters was posted on YouTube in hopes of someone being able to help identify the perpetrators. The recording took place a few blocks away at Tompkins Avenue and Halsey Street. An arrest has yet to be made.
