BehindNYNews 142 Posted January 19, 2015 Share Posted January 19, 2015 The View is now a part of the ABC News division. Rosie Perez was just fired from The View, Rosie O has apparently been a nightmare to work with for everyone at The View and there is little to no doubt that at the end of Whoopi's contract, she will not renew it. Basically everyone at The View is in panic mode trying to fix the show from its lowest ratings ever. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2901076/The-beginning-end-Rosie-Whoopi-ABC-considers-abandoning-View-extending-Good-Morning-America-infighting-grows-ratings-plunge.html, http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2913695/PICTURE-EXCLUSIVE-Somber-Rosie-Perez-leaves-Brooklyn-home-time-FIRED-View-rumblings-reveal-not-let-go.html, http://s2smagazine.com/2015/01/16/rosie-perez-exits-the-view-after-4-months-on-the-job/ From the first article, I find this interesting, 'They plan on shooting some test shows in the coming weeks to freshen up the Good Afternoon America concept. They plan to shoot a few pilot episodes following GMA going off air and retooling the show just in case they need to have it ready for a late summer launch,' the source revealed. This has come up before but I feel like it is most viable now than it ever has been before. I am interested in all of your opinions on the possibility that ABC does in fact cancel The View and extends GMA to either a 3rd hour or does some sort of GAA as is mentioned in the above articles as well as nearly every other one you can find on the web. To supplement this, what would a third hour look like? Who would anchor it? Would it be successful? Based on the first article, this would be a GAA like show airing in The View's time slot, so it wouldn't be 3 consecutive hours. The weird part about the 10/11am time slot is, what do you call the show? If you call it GMA, your naming it the same as the 7am show while its not directly connected. But if you name it GAA, it isn't the afternoon yet. The program would be great lead into the midday news though. If The View is canceled, I think its safe to say GMA/GAA will replace it, the real question is, will The View be canceled. For those who haven't seen GAA, ABC conveniently posted an entire episode just two months ago.
