Despite the drama that has erupted on the show this season – the petition to remove Whoopi Goldberg from the show for her Holocaust comment and the shocking replacement for Meghan McCain – the American talk show has a 1.7 rating. It topped all other network and syndicated daytime talk shows, ranking No. 1 in households and total viewership for the 2021 to 2022 season.

His success score binds him with “Dr. Phil” in homes, averaging 2.411 million viewers for the season. “Dr. Phil” comes right behind “View” in total viewers for the entire season, averaging 2.405 million total viewers, followed by “Living with Kelly and Ryan” with 2.357 million viewers.

Other talk shows that made the top rated list for the season include “Today Hour Three”, “GMA3”, “Today with Hoda & Kotb”, “The Talk”, “The Ellen DeGeneres Show“, and “The Kelly Clarkson Show.” Meanwhile, “View” did not exceed adults 25-24, the central demo of news programs; instead, he got fourth place with “Living with Kelly and Ryan” at the head of the chain. In this category, “Today Third Hour” came second while “Dr. Phil” followed closely.

In addition, for the last programming week of the season, “View” ranked at the top with a 1.6 rating and 2.243 million total viewers. It was ranked ahead of “Live With Kelly and Ryan”, with a 1.5 rating and 2.129 million total viewers, and “Dr. Phil” with its 1.4 rating and 1.988 million total viewers. NBC’s “Today Third Hour” (1.3 ratings, 2.022 million total viewers) and CBS’s “The Talk” (0.9 ratings, 1.363 million total viewers) were also added to the category.

Executive producer Brian Teta said in a statement that the season aims to celebrate the history of “The View”, adding that there is “no better way” to convey its “impact and relevance” than by making history. The show has indeed made history since 25 years later, and for the second year in a row, it is the most-watched daytime talk show in the United States.

Teta pointed out that whenever something happens in the world, viewers tune in to hear how the co-hosts on “View” replied. He went on to note that that year there were several exciting activities, including finding a “new conservative co-host”, welcoming former co-hosts for the milestone anniversary and celebrating an exciting week in the Bahamas.

Still, as the midterms approach, the gang is ready to “prepare for more interviews and political debate” and welcome two new Republican co-anchors. You may recall that the 2021-2022 season of “The View” featured Goldberg, Joy Behar, Sara Haines, Sunny Hostin and weekly contributor Ana Navarro.

Meanwhile, the next season, which premieres in September, will feature all the women, including former White House staffer Alyssa Farrah Griffin. There’s also some upheaval to expect as the teams behind “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” and those in charge of “The Wendy Williams Show” will return with Sherri Shepherd’s “The Jennifer Hudson Show” and “Sherri” respectively this fall.

Viewers form petition to remove Whoopi Goldberg from “View”

Speaking of the drama attached to “View” during the 2021 to 2022 season, The Blast reported that Goldberg, one of the co-hosts, received backlash following his outrageous remark about the Holocaust on the show. Viewers created a petition at the time to have her removed as they noted that she had made “many remarks about race” but those she made to the Jewish community were “disgusting”.

Regarding her allegedly anti-Jewish remarks, she said the Holocaust was not about race but was about “the inhumanity of man to man”, adding that the parties involved were “two groups of people white”. While she apologized for the misrepresentation, viewers weren’t so forgiving as they demanded her removal from “View” for his “verbiage and repugnant acts”.

Shortly after, The Blast shared another story on the talk show, revealing Meghan McCain’s replacement, Alyssa Farah Griffin, who was the White House communications director for former President Donald Trump. Griffin’s past working relationship with Trump has drawn great controversy and criticism from others “View” co-hosts, which would have reduced his chances of landing a spot on the show.

There was no confirmation of the news at the time; however, a source mentioned that an announcement would be due before the end of the season.
