Barbara Walters, who retired from her on-air role on “The View” back in May and has been toying with varying degrees of retirement and semi-retirement for at least 10 years, added the latest twist to her on-again, off-again retirement.
While last year was slated to mark the last of Walters’ “10 Most Fascinating” specials, TVNewser reports that the program will now return in December.
ABC will air a 2-hour special on Sunday, Dec. 14, with Walters hosting. The program will feature Oprah Winfrey, Neil Patrick Harris, Chelsea Handler and Scarlett Johansson, although Walters only reveals the No. 1 most fascinating person when the special airs, the story adds.
“[Y]ou never pass up the opportunity to interview Oprah, Neil, Chelsea or Scarlett,” Walters said.
The special will be executive produced by Bill Geddie, who was the co-executive producer of “The View” until this summer.
