Elisabeth Hasselbeck's Right-Wing Chatter Got Her Canned from 'The View': Report

Like Joy Behar, Elisabeth Hasselbeck is reportedly leaving The View. However, it may not be of her own volition.

HasselbeckUS Weekly reports:

According to the source, the show's resident conservative voice is being ousted after market research revealed that she isn't popular with TV audiences.

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

When reached for comment, a rep for the show told Us in a statement: "Elisabeth Hasselbeck is a valued member of The View and has a long term contract."

Meanwhile, Brooke Shields is rumored to be joining the table.

  3. I actually thought it was good to have a highly visible, outspoken conservative who is very supportive of marriage equality on TV. Sure she had some other crazy views but at least she sounded crazy while espousing them.

  4. Who watches The View? If you have that hour free for viewing T V, why not watch CNN, MSNBC or C Span places where you often get intelligent opinions and information.

  5. S.E. Cupp on "The Cycle" is tons easier to take. She's a Conservative but not rigid and actually enjoys conversational give and take.

  6. I wouldn't mind Hasselbeck if she didn't tow the Republican party line's stupid so strongly. Keyword there being stupid as there have been multiple occasions where the things she chose to spout off about were completely false but she stuck to them like glue. Worse yet, when Republican mistakes were clearly laid out and undeniable - she'd toss out some random thing a Democrat (somewhere in history) had done wrong as if it made things right. If she didn't do that she'd just sit there tight lipped.

    I'd hate to think she's that willfully ignorant and given that she's been known to pop up at Republican events - my guess is that it's more tactical. She gone so overboard at times in support of Republican party talking points that it just feels too staged to be real. However, if she's just using those View moments to make herself more marketable to the Republican party it begins to make sen$e.

    She spouts off and loud talks over the other View hosts and she gets invited to appear at Republican event here, a Fox broadcast there - kaching, kaching! I think much the same holds true for the other talking heads like Coulter and Limbaugh. They come out with such off the wall crap and hope it catches fire because that just means more money.

  7. S.E. "Get That Check Anywhere You Can!" Cupp just elbowed her way to the front of the audition line.

  8. How can anyone say that EH is FOR gay marriage when all she does is overtly and quite forcefully support right-wing nuttery?

    It's like saying I have gay friends, yet I vote Republican. It is absurd. You are supporting the group that belittles your friends, and thrives on every turn to deprive them not only of their American rights, but of their human rights as well. Some good friend you are.

  9. I don't watch the View, but my mom says that Hasselbeck is a biitch, Mom stopped watching because of "Elizabitch".

  10. I disagree with her about almost everything, but she's downright moderate for a conservative, and usually pretty respectful in expressing her views. I mean, if anyone should be hired for stupidity, it's Sherri.

    I suspect that she's being ousted because "the young one" is now 35, or because they have a more interesting replacement already lined up.

  11. Replace EH(empty head?) with Megan McCain, Bring back Rosie and dump Sheppard.Joy will be missed.

  12. OK so EH isn't our favorite donut dolly.
    So what exactly has she said that we don't like?
    I honestly don't know because I have never watched her.

  13. Bring back Rosie!

  15. Elizabeth can only see through her tunnel vision. She is allowed to be conservative but she could use a little more education on liberal views. She is obsessed with ,government interference, yet she doesn't seem to realize that government touches all aspects of our lives...from income taxes to the FDA,EPA,TVA,DEA,SSA. Lest we forget it is right there for Child Protective Services, Adult Protective Services. Eliizeth, which would you discontinue because of government interferance? In EH favor she is not filled with as much hate and resentment as Hannity. He can dress up his views in sheep clothing but it is not working, HE HATES AND RESENTS AFRO_AMERICANS!!! NOTE: To Sherri, stop interrupting others in order to repeat almost verbatiam the topic Whoopi has just introduced. We heard Whoopi initially.

  16. Several posters have commented that Elisabeth has come a LOOOOONG way from the rigid, shrill woman who joined the show some 11 years ago, as a clear sop to George W. Bush voters. (I'm still surprised they didn't go with Rachel Duffy, who is Latina as well as Republican.) But give the woman credit, she's become looser and funnier as the show went on, she's now VERY pro-gay, and she's never been less than gracious when either of the Obamas were on. (She was unafraid, however, to ask the president some fair but very pointed questions about policies he'd been side-stepping explaining--and I say that as an Obama voter.)

    Rachel Campos would still be a good person to come in, but I think they have a bunch of kids she home-schools. Megan McCain would be even better, and appeal to the young demographic. Throw in Ali Wentworth to replace Joy, and that'd be a really fresh and fun panel.

  17. As an infrequent viewer, I feel the loss of a Repug is no big deal but I do hope it won't turn into a all liberal setting either.
