Rosie O’Donnell Officially Returning to The View (TVNewser)
Rosie O’Donnell is returning to The View as a co-host in the fall, ABC confirmed via Twitter Thursday. Variety O’Donnell will join moderator Whoopi Goldberg. ABC execs are in the midst of a extensive search for new producers to take the reins of The View as the show prepares to replace panelists Sherri Shepherd and Jenny McCarthy, who recently exited the daytime program. THR / The Live Feed O’Donnell, who was a panelist on The View for the 2007-2008 season, left after just one year. O’Donnell had a notably stormy tenure on the show, often fighting with conservative panelist Elisabeth Hasselbeck, who suggested on Fox News on Wednesday that O’Donnell had been plotting her return to the show for “a very, very long time.” HuffPost TMZ reported Tuesday that the former co-host would be returning, claiming that O’Donnell had been in “active talks” with the show. This will be ABC’s first move to put back the pieces after the major overhaul that left Whoopi Goldberg as the show’s only remaining co-host. In June, Shepherd and McCarthy announced that they would be leaving, and ABC implied in a statement that their departures were not voluntary. Barbara Walters, the show’s creator, retired in May and Joy Behar and Hasselbeck both exited the show in 2013. NYT O’Donnell’s name immediately arose as most likely to be the first-named replacement. Her outspoken and often politically oriented commentary helped spark a surge in the show’s ratings. A committed liberal with strong views on numerous topics, she also got into some widely publicized feuds, with Donald Trump and others.

On The Menu: Taking A Look Back At The Year In Media Jobs

The Primetime Emmys were the biggest news of the day on today’s media- bistro.com Morning Media Menu podcast, along with talk about the rapidly growing number of media jobs lost over the past year and the Google book settlement.

Hosts Jason Boog of GalleyCat and AgencySpy‘s Matt Van Hoven talked about last night’s award show and its biggest winners, “30 Rock” and “Mad Men,” two shows based in the media world of network television and advertising.

Matt and Jason also discussed today’s report in Editor & Publisher that revealed that journalists have been losing their jobs at three times the rate of the average worker. “It’s not just journalists,” who are affected by the recent recession, Matt pointed out. “It’s the entire print industry.”

According to the report, 35,885 news media jobs have been lost since September 15, 2008, with the majority — 24,511 — falling in newspaper and print journalism industry. But is this a new trend? Matt doesn’t think so. “I imagine if you look back to 2005 or 2004, you would see the trend beginning maybe back then,” he said. “Maybe on a smaller scale, but the writing is certainly on the wall for a lot of publications.”

Also discussed: why the FCC has asked a federal court judge to reject the Google books settlement and the implications of the settlement being approved or rejected.
