Things are not looking good for Rosie, Whoopi and crew, as execs at ABC are said to be “ready to abandon ship” on long-running daytime talk show “The View,” according to the Daily Mail. “The brass at ABC feels like they’ve tried to do everything possible to breathe new life into this show,” a source says. “The View,” currently in its 18th season, would be replaced by an extra hour of “Good Morning America,” a move similar to the one the “Today” show made years ago. “ABC feels it’s exhausted their options with ‘The View’ and now it’s time to expand the existing franchise. They feel that since GMA is already beating NBC’s ‘Today’ during the first two hours of the broadcast, why not extend the morning broadcast?” But what will Whoopi Goldberg do with her mornings now?
