Monica Lewinsky to join The View?

Barbara Walters wants ABC to bring in Monica Lewinsky to salvage "The View," which is a good candidate for a cancellation this summer, a London daily reported.

The problem is, what would ABC replace it with? Bad ratings aside, it is cheap to produce and still turns a slow hour into a profit center. The problem everyone else figured out ill-informed celebrities can churn out commentary to entertain the unemployed who rise out of bed at 11 a.m.

From the London Daily Mail:
Retired news legend Barbara Walters still has some clout - and a strong opinion about how ABC can turn things around at the ratings-challenged show she created, The View.
Barbara's magic bullet: Monica Lewinsky.
Walters says that the former White House intern would be a 'run away success' on The View, a network source tells Daily Mail Online.
She would attract great guests -- even if casting her as a regular co-host would make it unlikely that potential 2016 Presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton or President Bill Clinton would ever appear on the show again.
If true, Miss Walters may be feeling a little liberal guilt over the way all the other liberals dumped on her 17 years ago. Miss Lewinsky would give us a unique perspective on politics -- from under the desk.

Look for another new cast next fall with an average age 10 years younger than the 50s-something now on the show. It will go on, but the Bush era buzz is gone. I don't think Lewinsky will bring it back.

  1. [Lewinsky] would attract great guests -- even if casting her as a regular co-host would make it unlikely that potential 2016 Presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton or President Bill Clinton would ever appear on the show again.

    I'm not so sure. In the unlikely event Lewinsky does get the nod (I will die of pure shock if ABC or anyone else does anything that costs Hillary! one vote) I could easily see a Great Forgiveness Show where all three sit together and where Monica bestows her blessing upon Hillary! against the evil God-and-guns clingers.

    And Lewinsky would do it, if she wanted to stay in show biz.

  2. A circus, with no nutrition for body or mind.

  3. My apropos advice to Monica: "Don't wrestle with a pig. You'll both get dirty, and the pig will enjoy it."
