Daytime TV: The View

Joy Behar Leaves The View Today
Washington Post

The last of the original hosts on ABC’s daytime talk show The View (11am) — except for the program’s inventor, Barbara Walters — makes her exit Friday.

Joy Behar’s last day is punctuated by a profane joke. Taped a week ago, the program is a salute to Behar with special guests, a serenade and highlights of her memorable moments, including interviewing Barack Obama and walking out on Bill O’Reilly.

Behar, 70, a standup comic and writer, said after the taping that she wants to do something different without being held to the schedule of a daily talk show. She’s exploring different areas, and said she met with CNN chief Jeff Zucker about possibilities there.
