Report: ABC Mulling ‘The View’ as Possible ‘Oprah’ Replacement

Jan 15, 2010  •  Post A Comment

Executives at Disney and ABC are mulling turning the daytime show “The View” into a syndicated program that stations could run as a replacement for “The Oprah Winfrey Show,” TVNewsCheck reports, citing the pay web site NewsBlues.

Another option would be to keep the chatfest on the network but move it to 4 p.m., which is where Oprah’s show airs on the ABC-owned stations, or even 3 p.m., bumping “General Hospital” to a different time slot.

Back on Nov. 6th TVWeek Open Mic blogger Chuck Ross suggested that "The View" would be a good replacement for Oprah.

Oprah’s show ends after the 2010-11 season.

  1. They need to change their “Lingo” if they go to syndication or replace all 4 women or revamp the show. They won the Daytime Emmy, but they haven’t changed since they won.

  2. Big mistake. Bad move on ABC’s part. Keep “The View” where it is in late mornings. The structure of the show is one that works best in Daytime, not Early Fringe.
