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.
