Joy Behar is ready to vacate her seat at "The View's" table.
An ABC spokesperson confirmed to CNN that the veteran TV personality and former HLN host will leave the daytime program at the end of the season.
The network reports that she's been with "The View," which also features Whoopi Goldberg, Sherri Shepherd, Barbara Walters and Elisabeth Hasselbeck, since it premiered in 1997.
As for why Behar's chosen to leave after 16½ years, she said that it "seemed like the right time to move on." Although "The View's" hosting panel has seen plenty of changes over the years, Walters and Behar have been the two mainstays, says The Hollywood Reporter.
“Joy Behar has been instrumental in the success of 'The View' from the very beginning," an ABC spokesperson told CNN. "We wish her all the best in this next chapter, and are thrilled that we have her for the remainder of the season.”
According to THR, the 16th season will wrap in August.
joy makes me laugh she has impecable timing hope to see her on another tvshow soon.
"The View" is nothing but a cackling hen fest.
I think I just pooed my pants.
they screw up and then K. has too take the blame for everything...your a grown boy.....stay detached a bit from
stupidity. they don't even get it right...i had too flash my boobs too get a cp...how stupid is that. dumb bimbos
Your a man...stay true too yourself don't follow a bunch of bimbos who screw up all the time and make K look like an idiot....have fun do your thing but stay detached from that PROJECT sometimes.
kanye needs to stay clear of THIS PROJECT because he needs to develop more prestige as an artist and not looked at as some schnook from harlem.
go back too bed!!!!!!
she's stupid!!!!! sheesh all this writing....go back too bed!!!!!!
Do you see why your a stupid, disrespected hack.
HACKED IN ALL OVER NOW.
1. crashes computer 2 times a day
2. calls and hangs up
3 hacked in everywhere into 123 and trap account at least every day
I will never watch the view again ever until that girl , Elizabeth fake ass lady is gone. Period. The End!
nothing about politics, but always loved Joy and Whoopi......
if someone does not like a blogger they refer too another blogger as black....you can't even freshen that up
you have to creativity
that's 95% of the problem...keep moving leader...
Joy is a mean and bitter woman. There is nothing positive about this nasty woman. She is know-it-all and I am glad she is leaving the View but it would be even better if Whoopi "I am an expert on everything" Goldberg would leave. The show needs some new faces or just cancel the show.
So glad Elizabeth is leaving although I will really miss Joy's dry humor and VIEW point but could they please take Sherri with them so someone with an IQ above 90 could be hired in her place? Poor Whoopie – you can see her cringing half the time with Sherri's ignorance and Elizabeth's right wing nonsense.

Stopped watching the show years ago. Couldn't stand all of those hens all talking at the same time and over each other. What I mostly couldn't tolerate though was that little rodent faced Hasselbach and her constant right wing moaning and preaching. Joy always made me laugh...despite her sometimes rough delivery. Then Sheri Shepherd just started to be the most annoying mouth on the show. So good luck Joy...and we'll probably see Hasselmouth on some stupid reality show...or more likely she'll get a contract on Fox (faux) News.
I agree with everything you have said.
What view? All I see is a bunch of old cows who should grazing on the hillside than be on national tv.
if ever a puck? you better keep that mouth shut–da one you talk will say nope, never don't know her...and why because he lud Madonna...KAPEESH
just a little respect. k?
Exactly what drugs are you on?
Well then, I think you have a good legal case toward whatever school you went to (if you did). They failed you miserably. I was giving you the benefit of the doubt, thinking you were on drugs.
will have too take a blog audience hit because she opened her mouth too the wrong person...in turn
he gave her the parking lot rock story
Set up –why would anyone talk about who they sleep with on a blog i find that odd–at my age you
didn't think that was a set up?
one of my boyfriends is a client..bet he has never said a word and why because men respect me and "x"
man has too keep his mouth shut or it stays where it is.
never had her notes straight and never properly prepared before air time - behar is always prepared and never draws conclusions unless they are accurate... behar is a ratings loss too abc....hasselbeck is NO ratings loss whatsoever...next time be prepared before looking like an idiot
I'm surprised Elizabeth lasted this long. I don't even watch the show anymore, just because of her.
Justin is getting ready! truth..spring is fun!
have the time now–maybe we can make a movie....spring fun!
Is this the show where they sit around a table, and b1tchh and moan about current events? Does anyone ever watch that show, except The Soup for clips?
Elizabeth is a big mouth who never has her notes straight she just blabs without know the the facts–Joy gets the whole scenario before determining her conclusions....Elizabeth is not what we call a reliable source, Elizabeth
has her own agenda and is not that resouceful and will say anything...i find Elizabeth NOT reliable and rude.
Couldn't agree with you more. I quit watching the show, just because of her.
for ratings they should have kept behar 1 more year...hasselbeck is never prepared - i wil NOT be watching this show because of behar leaving NOT because of that moron hasselbeck.
for ratings they should have kept behar 1 more year...hasselbeck is never prepared – i will NOT be watching this show because of behar leaving NOT because of that moron hasselbeck.
yet you don't know what's is really happening.
because she likes him....
we send elizabeth on a 3 month vacation so Joy can fill in
I love Joy! I don't think I'll be watching the view anymore when she is gone! I look forward everyday to Joy's comments and insight. I love the fact that Elizabeth is going away though. Too bad Elizabeth couldn't go away and leave joy there.
It is about time!!! Have hated her and turned this show off five years ago. No matter what the discussion, she was clueless. Yelling your point or other's talking points does not make you informed, which is why her other shows have flopped. They say her next move is CNN, it will be like having Spitzer again; anther ratings drop because the person is unable to carry a show. Here's hoping for another very public failure! It couldn't happen to a nicer person.
and there never will be because she likes him.
because she likes him too much and what happened 5 years ago was the truth but not that serious and was a female issue...and don't start my day wrong...as i said before i have nothing too hide from anyone...
I've always wondered why Joy Behar was never chosen as The View's moderator (something she has earned by virtue of her longevity) and how Ms. Behar feels about that.
Joy Behar gives The View its spunk while Elisabeth Hasselbeck gives the show its "balance." My political views fall somewhere in between Joy Behar's and Elizabeth Hasselbeck's viewpoints.
With Barbara Walters having signaled plans to all but retire and Ms. Walters' recent health issues having exacerbated her increasing frailty, attrition at The View seems to an acknowledgement that the handwriting is on the wall: this series will likely not last beyond next season.

I like Elizabeth. She is a good counterpoint to the very left leaning Behar. No surprise that Behar works at Current TV.
The reports are that Elizabeth doesn't suit the female audience members, They must all be very wealthy stay at home liberal brats. Conservative women are too busy working to pay taxes, in my opinion.
will have too take a professional hit for their behavior and what information has returned too me in the last 6 months
by the tina's mouth
So Mary, aren't you from the rich party? I think you have that all backwards. Us libs are from the middle class. We work hard for our money. The reason the viewing public doesn't like Elizabeth is because she is annoying and off base. Just a republican who uses the faux news talking points to her determent. I wish she'd leave.
the view always sucked...i will never watch it even when i'm fulltime home...ridiculous show
she is jealous of others, rude beyond her years, bitter too people who have never done anything too her yet she is compelled to pick on others...who the heck is she...NOT quality tv that's for sure.
typical controlling snob...can't stand the woman, she is rude bitter and nasty and thinks who the heck she is..
can't stand the woman and most feel the way i do....
why is she not relevant? explain...
that's because we are waiting for joy too fall on her nasty little bitter face.
I stopped watching the view BECAUSE of Joy!!!!! Thank god she is leaving so i can start watching it again, unfortunately have to wait 5 more months! She is a loud, obnoxious, old bitty, who thinks every SHE says is funny, Crazy Broad!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
All those far-left liberals on the View, and just one conservative. I never thought that was fair., even though Behar,
Whoopi and the other one– are pretty weak.
I'd love to see Michelle Malkin as a co-host on The View; she can hold her own against anyone.
I'd love to see Carly Fiorina as a co-host on The View, too; she's also very strong.
There are many other strong, independent-thinking conservative women who could replace Hasselbeck.
Malkin? All that woman spouts is right wing hatred. I wouldn't be surprised to find out she was a card carrying clan member. She is only prevalent on Faux News, because hatred is all they push. Did you see Bill O'Reilly the other night. The man is an utter nut case. Malkin, are you freakin' kidding me.
If only she was relevant and not just loud.
however you deserve it.
My comment is more on her age. I cannot believe she is 70; looks very good.
Best way for her to leave the show is if Bill O'reilly comes on the show, he says something, she walks off never to come back again. Great ending and a smile from Bill!!!
in the pit of his stomach he likes her.
Joy and Whoopee had the knowledge. Babs maybe but she has forgotten and not up on any current trends. Eliz and Sherry are vacant.
Behar just repeats same-old, same-old liberal rhetoric, and, anyone who fell for the corrupt, phony Al Gore like she did, can't be too swift.
Whoopi just flies off the handle and screams, very unprofessional.
Ah yes Whoopi's precious knowledge "I know it was not ra pe ra pe"
That was so brilliantly intelligent.
If only Barbara & Sherry would leave...better yet lets get a whole new panel
Best of all, just cancel the show.
thank you all from bars, decks and parties (outside of course) we wish you the best...mike– thank you for your efforts
outside of petro's grill recently
Hopefully they replace her with Michelle Malkin...
You are even more stupid than I prevoiusly thought.
Amen! Love Michelle Malkin!
Behar sisters are just not that good-LMAO
i'm not her and it was 5 years ago–we know she looked at the medical records...i am not taking anything..because there was no reason too
we know she saw my medical records and all went well...so no biggie...i run, exercise and just have too watch monthly.
there is no reason too lie
i know she saw it...she announced on a blog...no reason too lie
Now a new phrase for the dictionary... Being a behar: mean, b!tchy and opinionated; intolerant shrew.
no, that's a "Hasselbeck"
I am glad she is leaving she gave the View a bad reputation and turned alot of viewers off. I never met anyone who claim to believe in GOD and be so unholy and hateful .....
she is a meanie...whoa.
it's about time – she is a mean-spirited person who, in true liberal fashion, has no tolerance for a different opinion. It's her way or no way...
you think? Nah
You may be right about her being mean-spirited-but "in true liberal fashion"? That's crap and you know it. Unfortunately, most liberals give the other side too much credence and consideration. You must have never run into a real conservative. They not only believe they're always right–but insist on trying to make you agree with them.
You tell 'em Anne. Behar maybe a little brassy, but I think she is funny, and tells it like it is. You conservative's hero is Rush Limbaugh. A big bag of gaseous vapor that spews nothing but right wing rhetoric, and you sheep believe everything he says. Then in turn, you tell everybody who will listen to you that crap as fact. No wonder your party is in such disarray.
yeah anne Behar and Goldberg walking off stage because O'Reilly said something about Muslims. Man that was true consideration and credence eh.
I saw that show. Those two women had every right to walk off that stage. When you have a man who represents the right, say something so hateful, yeah I'd walk off, too. Bill O'Reilly is a right wing bigot.
Elizabeth should join her, can't stand Elizabeth.
The View will be short a very "Joyless" person and better off for it
joy is always pleasing too the eye...especially in the black blouse she wore this morning
thanks for letting us know where i sit.
I am glad and I hope her replacement will help Elizabeth as the panel is off sided. She is way too harsh and makes the show hard to watch at times.
because joy told everyone-
That is no loss – the woman is mean and it is about time. She is also someone who believe she is always right and if guests and other do not agree with her she constantly says things that are meant to hurt people and is someone who should never be on TV.
I agree. She's a big mouth who should have gone a long time ago.
So WHAT, who CARES?
