Elisabeth Hasselbeck Says Goodbye To Her Colleagues At ‘The View’

Today was Elisabeth Hasselbeck‘s last day on “The View.” Later this year she will join Fox News as the co-host of “Fox & Friends,” replacing Gretchen Carlson, who is departing for her own afternoon program. To open this morning’s program, Hasselbeck walked out arm in arm with host Barbara Walters.

“Barbara, I did some math last night, and I think that I have had over 3,000 days working by your side, I think it is fair to say that over the course of the decade, I have attended the Barbara Walters school of broadcasting and journalism,” Hasselbeck said. “I was not the first person to sit in this chair, and I will certainly not be the last person to sit in this chair. The past 10 years have been nothing short of extraordinary, and I wholeheartedly wish the next co-host that sits here an extraordinary set of years of their own… now let’s get to work!”

Hasselbeck also spoke briefly about her “View” co-hosts Whoopi Goldberg, Joy Behar and Sherri Shepard, as well as EP Bill Geddie.

Walters was also emotional, so much so that she fumbled her words a little bit while praising Hasselbeck.

“I am a little emotional, or as that other Barbra [Streisand] sometimes says, I am a little verklempt, because it was reported last night that our Elisabeth Hasselbeck is leaving us to join the Fox network,” Walters said. “I want what is best for you, and you know how I feel about you, and, I am happy that you are going… No I am not happy that you are going! I am happy that it is good for you.”

‘Today’ Back on Top in the Mornings

A week after breaking the “Today” show’s 852-week win streak, “Good Morning America” slipped back to second place last week, according to just-released Nielsen ratings.

“Today” drew 5.253 million viewers  to “GMA’s” 5.010 million for the week of April 16. Also some good news for “CBS This Morning.” The perennial third-pace show is up in households, Total Viewers, and A25-54 compared to the same week last year, but still a distant third with 2.527 million viewers. We’ll have the complete Morning Show ratings coming up later.

“GMA” won the week of April 9, 2012 — the first time they’d done so since December, 1995 — during a week that saw Matt Lauer on vacation and two big name guests on “GMA”: Tim Tebow and, as George Stephanopoulos acknowledged on “The View” Tuesday, Sherri Shepard. Also on “The View,” Barbara Walters asked the GMA anchors, “How do you continue, what do you feel you all have to do?”

“It think we have to keep doing what we’re doing,” said Robin Roberts. “And that’s having a lot of fun.” Watch, after the jump…
