Variety has exclusively learned that Navarro Ana and Griffin Farah Alyssa, Haines Sara, Hostin Sunny, and Behar Joy will be returning as fellow co-hosts alongside Goldberg Whoopi, who will continue to serve as the moderator, for the upcoming 27th season of “The View”.
“The co-hosts’ return for another season comes as “The Talk” ended the 2022-2023 TV season with a high note, ranking No. 1 among total viewers and households among all daytime talk shows.”
“The View” ranked second in its first year with cohost Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos, averaging a total of 2.293 million viewers. It surpassed other syndicated and network daytime talk shows and news programs, including “Live With Kelly and Mark,” which averaged 2.375 million viewers.
In the 2022-2023 season, “The Drew Barrymore Show” and “The Kelly Clarkson Show” ranked in the daytime talkers category, followed by “The Talk,” “CBS’ GMA3,” and “Today With Hoda and Jenna” on ABC. “The Dr. Phil Show” secured the fourth spot with a total of 1.789 million viewers, while “NBC’s Today” came in third place with a total of 2.054 million viewers.
During the day, “The View” maintained its position as the leader in terms of both viewers and households for the third year in a row. (In terms of households, “The View” was on par with “Live,” both having a rating of 1.6). On the other hand, “Live With Kelly and Mark” secured the top spot among adults aged 25-54, which is a crucial demographic for news programming, followed by the third hour of “Today.”.
“The Late Show With Stephen Colbert” outperformed “The View” and other talk shows on network television throughout the day. In previous months, “The Late Late Show” hosted by James Corden, “Late Night With Seth Meyers,” “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon,” and “Jimmy Kimmel Live” were surpassed by “The View” in terms of household and overall viewership ratings.
In a statement, executive producer Brian Teta expressed that “The View” is currently experiencing a significant milestone after 26 years of airing. Teta mentioned feeling a great sense of pride while reflecting on the legacies of Walters and Geddie, the co-creator of “The View” and Walters’ producer for many years, both of whom sadly passed away in the past year. Teta emphasized that the show is now more important than ever, which he believes is a testament to the visionary ideas of Barbara Walters and Bill Geddie, as well as the concept they originally developed.
Since 1997, television audiences have drastically changed. “Television. You can’t miss it,” added Teta. “It’s a reflection of our conversations at home, always at its best when ‘The View’ is on. They are having tough conversations, reacting to real-time breaking news, and talking about important issues. But they are also having fun at the table. They connect with the audience, and everyone can find a perspective to connect with. They have terrific chemistry. Now, we are heading into a presidential election cycle when ‘The View’ is historically at its strongest. I’m very excited for season 27.”
Given its reach with female viewers, “The View” has become a go-to destination on the campaign trail and one of the most influential political shows, particularly during the lead-up to the 2024 presidential election, during which its panel will heavily cover the year.
In 2021, Meghan McCain left the show, creating a conservative opening that was previously occupied by both women, Navarro and Griffin, who have now returned to the panel. Griffin, a former Trump White House employee, offers valuable perspective on the Trump campaign, while Navarro has been promoted to an official co-host. “The View” now includes two conservative voices, with the addition of Navarro and Griffin to the panel in the previous season.
Season 27 of “The View” is set to debut on September 5th.
