Everyone hates Jenny McCarthy on ‘The View’

Jenny McCarthy Chats For "Extra!" Interview

Jenny McCarthy was brought in by ABC to replace Elizabeth Hasselbeck on ‘The View,’ and as it turns out – no one likes Jenny. I read an article yesterday that said not only the cast doesn’t like Jenny – but neither does the audience. So much, in fact, people are saying they actually miss Elizabeth. You don’t say!

I’ve been saying for years I don’t know how anyone can listen to Jenny. She is BEYOND annoying. I could never watch a talk show that she’s hosting. Never. She drives me crazy.

The View isn’t favorable for Jenny McCarthy! A production source told exclusively that the newest co-host of the ABC morning show’s job is in jeopardy because her big mouth is making viewers tune out.

And incredibly, former Playboy Playmate McCarthy, 40, has proven to be even more unpopular with viewers than the polarizing Elisabeth Hasselbeck, who left The View for Fox News, the production insider revealed.

“ABC has begun doing deep research on Jenny’s work on the show and the initial findings are that viewers want to tune out the second she opens her mouth!” the source told Radar. “The data has revealed that she is FAR more off-putting than Elisabeth.”

Although The View titan Barbara Walters, 84, who is retiring from broadcasting in summer 2014, “isn’t looking for a replacement for Jenny yet, she is obsessed with ratings and the longevity of the show, so Jenny needs to turn it around or she will be gone.”

The source is unclear if McCarthy’s deal is for one year or two, but said that “if Barbara wants her out, they will buy out her contract.

“Right now they’re just trying to adjust Jenny’s performance on the show so that she comes off as more appealing, but that’s an uphill battle.”

According to The Wrap, The View has seen minor dips in total viewership after McCarthy’s debut.

The mother of an autistic son, McCarthy has come under fire by some for her controversial stance that vaccines cause autism.

Only morning show I can handle is Hoda and Kathy Lee. I want to be them when I grow up.

Jenny McCarthy: I Deserve Great and Donnie Wahlberg Is Great

Jenny McCarthy Hosts at 1 OAK Nightclub in Las Vegas

Jenny McCarthy is VERY happy with Donnie Wahlberg, and she wants the world to know! “If every relationship leads you to the next person and it leads you to what you want and what you don’t want, I feel like I deserve great and he’s great,” The View cohost said Saturday while hosting a party at 1 OAK in Las Vegas.

The couple have been dating since early July, and are happier than ever. “It’s new,” she said. “I took a year off [from dating] but I said if I meet someone who makes me stop that year off, it’s someone who I need to pay attention to.”

On Saturday, after McCarthy, 40, and Wahlberg, 44, took in the Boyz II Men concert at Mirage and dinner at Stack, they hit the club with several friends. In the club, the couple danced together, appeared blissfully happy, and seemed unaware of anyone else in the 16,000 square foot space.

At a VIP table above the deejay booth, McCarthy, donning a black long sleeved cocktail dress, sipped a few drinks and clung to her boyfriend and her sister. Aside from a reporter nearby, it was a rare moment of privacy for the best-selling author.

Maybe Donnie’s “the one” after all?

FIRST LOOK: Jenny McCarthy sits with her ‘View’ co-hosts!

It’s official! Jenny McCarthy is coming to ‘The View’!

Today we’re getting our first look at the 40-year-old along her new co-hosts, Whoopi Goldberg, Sherri Shepherd and Barbara Walters.

Barbara seems excited Jenny’s joining the crew. “She can be serious and outrageous. She has connected with our audience and offers a fresh point of view,” Walters said of what Jenny might bring to “The View’s” signature table.

I honestly can’t stand Jenny – she just gets under my skin. I think she’s so abrasive and annoying, I’m not sure how anyone listens to her. I don’t watch the View, so I suppose this news doesn’t affect me much.

McCarthy was hired less than a week after Elizabeth Hasselback left after 10 years. She’s moved on to “Fox & Friends.”

Joy Behar has also left the show after 16 years. The new season will premiere on Sept. 9.

IT’S OFFICIAL! Jenny McCarthy announced as Elisabeth Hasselbeck’s replacement on ‘The View’!

It’s official! Jenny McCarthy is coming to ‘The View,’ Barbara Walters announced on Monday.

Jenny has guest hosted ‘The View’ several times. Barbara opened today’s show with the announcement. Sherri Shepherd confirmed the rumors last week. “Jenny McCarthy is fearless, she’s amazing, she’ll cause some stuff, so I’m excited about her,” Shepherd said.

Elisabeth Hasselbeck seemed to abruptly leave the show last Wednesday. There had been rumors for months that she would be leaving, possibly even being fired from the show. Elisabeth will be joining ‘Fox and Friends’ as co-host this fall.

What do you think about Jenny joining ‘The View’?

Report: Jenny McCarthy in serious talks to replace Joy Behar on ‘The View’

There’s a rumor going around right now that Jenny McCarthy is being pursued by ABC to replace Joy Behar on ‘The View.’ Jenny is currently the host and executive producer of her own talk show, ‘The Jenny McCarthy Show’ on VH1, which has only been on air since December. I haven’t seen it – and honestly – I haven’t heard a thing about it since it debuted…so I’m thinking not many people are watching it. If the chance came to host ‘The View,’ she’d probably take it in a hot minute!

Joy Behar is reportedly set to leave the hit morning talk show in August after co-hosting it for sixteen seasons.

Make room on the couch! Frequent View guest cohost Jenny McCarthy may be joining the ABC morning talk show full-time.

“She is in serious talks right now,” an insider tells Us Weekly of the star, 40, who is currently hosting her own low-rated chatfest on VH1. “Her show isn’t quite working out, so she’s definitely open to it.”

The sassy single mom would replace Joy Behar, 70, when the comedian moves on in August, reveals another source. “The cast and crew get a kick out of Jenny,” adds a set source. “She’s a good fit. She may not be able to carry a show, but she works well with a group ensemble.”

A third insider adds Brooke Shields, 48, is also in talks to replace Elisabeth Hasselbeck, 36, come fall. Us exclusively revealed in March that Hasselbeck will not be returning as a cohost, but she has yet to confirm the news.

In addition to Behar announcing her departure from the show, Barbara Walters revealed in May that she plans to retire in summer 2014.

I wonder if the show will continue to be as successful as it has been if Joy, Elisabeth and Barbara all leave. If they do, it will almost be a completely different show! Do people watch ‘The View’ for it’s hosts – or for the guests?

I can see why they’d want to go with Jenny. She’s energetic, opinionated and loud. She would certainly spice things up a bit. I personally can’t stand her – she’s just way too much of everything – for me. I can see her getting on the show and making idiotic faces, and sticking out her tongue. I wonder if she can act like an adult for a full hour.
