NBC Co-host Meredith Vieira says The View Has Become A Joke – Rosie O’Donnell will Join Talk Show in September

Although Meredith Vieira says she does not watch the daytime TV talk show “The View” anymore, she says the show has become a “joke” lately. Vieira told Time magazine on Sunday that that she is “proud of the work we did there. But it's not a good time (currently) in the history of that show."

Vieira will become co-anchor of NBC’s “Today Show” on September 13th. She told the New York Post that she is "not tired" of the program, but after such a long time, "you become so blasé”.

Vieira moderated the show for nine years before leaving in May. She says she quit watching the show because she wanted to look forward to the future. She claims "It's hard to watch. It sort of became a joke."

Back in June there was a flurry of controversy when Star Jones Reynolds got the boot from “The View”. Jones had been a co-host for 9 years and the producers had planned on announcing her retirement from the show in July. Star broke the story in June while filming the show. This prompted her leaving the show early.

But the controversy does not end there. There was speculation that Jones’ forced-retirement was to make way for Rosie O’Donnell who will join “The View” in September. In June Us magazine reported the Rosie made some coy comments concerning Jones. When asked if she was upset that she would not be co-hosting with Jones, O’Donnell said “Well you know how much I like her.” She then added “(But) she thinks she’s Beyoncé.”
