Just days after Joy Behar made her final appearance as a co-host of The View, her replacement Jenny McCarthy has already made herself comfortable on set. ABC released the first official photo of Season 17’s cast, which shows Jenny alongside vets Whoopi Goldberg, Sherri Shepherd and Barbara Walters.
Jenny has already appeared on the view 17 times, eight of those being guest host appearances, so it makes sense that she looks natural and right-at-home in the photo. “I look forward to making hot topics a little bit hotter, and showing my mom that my interrupting skills have finally paid off,” she joked.
Noticeably missing is a fifth person at the round table — Elisabeth Hasselbeck left the show this summer, and although there’s been some rumors about who might replace her, it looks like Season 17 may be going with just four hosts.
Check out Jenny in action when The View premieres on Sept. 9. More details in the video below:
