In show business the “term jumping the shark” it used when a television program makes last gasped events to save their show. “The View a daytime talk show developed by Barbara Walters in 1997 has had a constantly changing array of celebrity talkers who were supposed to showcase diverse opinions on world happening. The show has seen better days viewership ways and recently again announced a new line up of participants to dish about everything from politics to entertainment news. In the shake up an old favorite returns along with some new, fresh faced pundits who will hopefully face off on the issues
Returning to the View is fan favorite Joy Behar who left two years ago for some time off. Continuing her role as moderator is Whoopi Goldberg. Behar was a co-host on the show for 16 years; from its beginnings in 1997 along with Barbara Walters, Behar was the longest-running of the original co-hosts that Walters brought together in 1997. The original recipe of for the show’s success was one of varying opinion. There were the years when Rosie O’Donnell and Elizabeth Hasselbeck seemed to rip each other’s opinions to shreds. There were public feuds with other correspondents like Starr Jones. The show was at its most popular when there were differences of opinion. When the show didn’t harbor opinions of those not in the so called liberal media it died off.
Hence the jumping the shark by bringing back former hosts who were popular and actually bringing to blood to the show with Candace Cameron Bure and Paula Faris who will join Goldberg and Raven-Symone. Cameron Bure is most known for her role on the popular TV show Full House. Cameron Bure will bring her own Christian conservative beliefs which in several appearances as guest host she showcased. Her strong Christian values were evident when she defended a bakery who refused to make a wedding cake for a Gay wedding. In her defense of the bakery she stated that didn’t refuse to bake the cake because of [the couple’s] sexual orientation,” Bure argued at the time. “In fact, they baked cakes for them previously. They had a problem with the actual ceremony because that — the ceremony — is what conflicted with their religious beliefs. They are saying that they stand for marriage between a man and a woman.” She continued that “I really wish we could do as a society, as a culture, as a country, is to respect that we have opposing views.” That appearance made news and helped to bring in higher rating that the view was looking for.
