Elisabeth Hasselbeck's 'The View' Contract Not Being Renewed?

Elisabeth Hasselbeck's 'The View' Contract Not Being Renewed?

UPDATE: Barbara Walters made a statement on The View today, saying Elisabeth will not be leaving. “The truth is we love Elisabeth…We have no plans for Elisabeth to leave the show.”

Elisabeth Hasselbeck is reportedly not returning to The View next season, Us Weekly reports.

The 35-year-old co-host of the show has been around for nine years, but unfortunately, viewers did not find her views appealing, according to a source.

“The viewers they polled all said she was too extreme and right wing,” an insider said. “People did not watch the show because of Elisabeth. So they told her yesterday her contract would not be renewed.”

The news comes off the heels of Joy Behar‘s announcement that she would not be returning to the show after sixteen years.

ARE YOU SAD to see Elisabeth Hasselbeck leave The View?

    I’m as progressive as they come but they do need a conservative voice on that show even though I rarely watch.. It’s just she’s not the one..

  • :)

    I actually liked her on the show. She’s classy and voices a fair opinion.

  • dani

    I don’t think it was her views since the show is about divergent views—but she is just not a likeable or believable person.

  • awesome

    The best news I’ve heard today! I do not appreciate her “view”.

  • just me

    YES !!!!! FINALLY !!!!!!!

  • sillyme

    Great, so now they’re going to have just the left wing idiots on the show. They will lose more audience than they will gain without her gone. Joy Behar is the one I couldn’t stand. The most intolerant person on the panel.

  • Ashley

    Ding dong the with is dead.

  • yes

    YES!!! YES!!! YES!!! I quit watching this show because of her. I am so happy to not have to watch her hateful and ignorant opinions.

  • Cindy

    That is ridiculous!

  • Franson

    At least I can still fap to Whoopi.

  • Jacquee

    Unfair comments here. We all should be more tolerant of other people’s views. I don’t personally watch this show because these women really do not have any significance, and they certainly do not have any political clout whatsoever. It’s just another daytime talk show aiming for distinction by talking politics – which they are not experts on. They should do makeovers or something like that.

  • em

    it took them 9 years to realize this? i personally prefer the talk more because those women get along with each other. the view is a group of women who would gladly stab each other with a knife if there were no legal repercussions.

  • rachel

    bitch is gone

  • SMF

    NO…only extreme left wing liberal co-hosts left. There will be no balanced opinions presented after she leaves. I will certainly NOT be watching after she leaves!

  • JPX

    She’s just an absolute vomit. She’s on the wrong side of every social issue. The View is a pretty bad show to begin with but Hasselbeck was simply intolerable. Hopefully she will fade into obscurity,

  • kel

    When is Baba gonna retire.

  • an opinion

    Yes! Please don’t renew Sherry’s contract either.

  • penny

    I will not watch…we all have different views and without elizabeth – well there is not another VIEW on the view… people are wild when they say she was intolerable…seriousLY? so we should all listen to joy and only joy? I WILL not watch anymore. i loved hearing all sides.

  • lori

    The Talk is better

  • Kylie

    There should be a place for a conservative voice, but she was judgmental and grating. She also did not have the depth of knowledge to hold up her end of the discussion/debate – she was seriously outshined. That show could do far better.

  • HAHA


  • shazzz

    SAD, HA….IT’s about time………guess her husband will have to go to work now.

  • what say you

    A conservative with Faux News talking points. Faux news is all about hate and misinformation!.

  • AndrewDevine

    Love my job, since I’ve been bringing in $5600… I sit at home, music playing while I work in front of my new iMac that I got now that I’m making it online.(Click Home information)

  • Clarabella

    The one that needs to go is Barbara Walters.I Hate it when she says she needs to set up a Hot Topic that been in the news for Weeks,Months or Years.

  • good riddance!!!

  • lucy

    YES YES Finally !!!!!!

  • http://website Petitefleur

    Finally, I stopped wayching the show long ago because of her!! Now I can go back!!

  • michell

    we are not all liberals/centrists and although i’m not a fan of elizabeth i’m very tolerant of others’ point(s) of view. i guess the View is not.

  • Eric

    The View needs a conservative counter to Whoopi but Hasselbeck certainly wasn’t the one to do it. The girl makes absurd claims that I sincerely doubt she even believes half the time. She’s phony, plastic and feigns the importance of so many topics… GOOD RIDDANCE

  • margaret

    Elizabeth’s high voice pitch, her immature mannerisms, and playing to the camera was more than I could stomach. I’ll start watching when she’s gone for good.

  • dani

    And you are being tolerant by saying they have no significance or political clout? They certainly have more than you do when it comes to opinions and being listened to. And saying they should do make up shows? You are a prime example of why women are their own worst enemy.

  • Tom

    They only people watching tv during the day are a bunch of welfare moms., The rest watch Dr oz or Judge Judy….Why do you think they have 2 black co-hosts… And why do you think Kelly picked a black co-host…

  • nan sbei

    GREAT!!!!! Bout time…..I;ll start watching again. They do need a conservative voice, but she’s not it!!

  • Warren

    I tried to watch that show a few times because they had Miley on. They should lose the whole show. All that yammering gets on my nerves, like watching paint dry.

  • http://computer LOL

    @Tom: Hello Uncle tom

  • Love The Shoes

    Elisabeth was NEVER a reason I didn’t watch. I actually said that if they could dump Sherri and Barbara Walters, I’d have no problem tuning in for Whoopi, Joy and Elisabeth. I may not have agreed Elisabeth a lot I still thought she was smart. She and Joy were the only two who ever did their homework.

  • CorporateFluff

    FFS people, turn off this Corporate Media fluff and tune into some serious journalism: Amy Goodman of DemocracyNow!

  • Leila

    They’ll probably hire another Conservative and that’s a good idea, to have both sides point of view. Unfortunately, Hasselbeck was a bad choice from the start, not likeable, a grating and annoying personality.

  • Constance

    I have not watched The View in a long time. However, when I did watch it, I liked that there were opposing views. Mostly, I didn’t agree with everything any of them said, but I liked the debate. I hope that they replace her and Joy with two more conservative women.

  • http://wolfdreaming Kay Blood

    Best news ever! Elizabitch is gone. Thank God.

  • SameOldThing

    I stopped watching over five years ago because of Joy. When she wasn’t on everyone was civil, they agreed to disagree and moved on. Now we’ll be treated to more dumbing down and ‘female focused’ daytime. Yeah, hair products, cooking and diets, because that is all our pretty little heads care about; ugh! Was thrilled that Joy was leaving, was going to start watching again. No, not worth it. Anyone here thinking Joy is the reason for the show’s success, simply look at her ratings and success with other projects. Her voice is annoying and she is just an ugly person when guests disagree. She doesn’t study, she doesn’t know the ins and outs of politics, all she knows and eats are talking points, Hence her other failures. CNN, her next failure.

  • Nonna

    Elisabeth is one of the most annoying people on tv and knows zilch. Glad to hear she’s out. Perhaps they should just cancel the show now. I am sure Whoopi could easily find work.

    The Talk is much more enjoyable even with Julie Chen.

  • Michele

    I stopped watching the View because of her. Her views are whacked out and it’s either black or white for her, there is no in between. Her opinion was the only opinion that counted. I was shocked to see that she is only 35 years old because she thinks like an old 80 year old Republican.

  • maryhadalittlelamb

    Wow, finally! Although this is suspicious as the feedback has generally always been that not many people liked her so why now after nearly a decade do they decide to let her go? She’s Barbara’s pet after all.

    She did not have a great personality on tv. I believe people will listen to your views even if they are opposite of yours but there has to be something at least endearing about you if you want to be in a national platform and she never had it, she was very polarizing and low tolerant, close minded and just aggressive in her views.

  • Arkebe

    I guess it OK for liberals to rattle on but they are too stupid to listen
    to the other side. Wake up America, liberals are taking us down the
    dead end.

  • RollingOn

    They needed Obama to win a second term to realize Elizabeth’s whacked out opinions is not flying with the popular vote. It is not her party foundations that bother me. It is the way the party negatively turns every issue into a personal attack. She is an example of those pasty people. A good debater would stick to the facts and understand what is irrelevant to the topic. She goes off and sometimes her points are valid. But I’m not interested because there is a defense and egocentric posture in all of it.

  • San

    She was the best on the show. For five against one politically, she was the most intelligent and certainly held her own. She was gracious with guests from opposing views. The class of the show is leaving. My friends and I rarely watched it. Joy’s voice was like chalk on a blackboard. That women’s brains were being sat on.
