‘The View’ Turns 20: ABC to Re-Air First Episode With Barbara Walters (Exclusive)

7 August 2017 7:55 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Two decades ago ago, Barbara Walters had a groundbreaking idea. She wanted to launch a talk show where she could stop by, on top of her full-time job on “20/20,” to spar with a multi-generational panel of women about the headlines of the day. After a casting-call at the Essex Hotel, she discovered the four ladies — Meredith Vieira, Star Jones, Joy Behar and Debbie Matenopoulos — who’d join her as the co-hosts of “The View,” which premiered on Aug. 11, 1997.

To celebrate the 20th anniversary of a show that changed the rules of daytime TV, ABC is re-airing the first episode of “The View” this Friday, Variety has learned. The show was not a success in its immediate days, which Walters told me prior to her retirement in 2014.

Laurie Dhue was a familiar presence on Fox in the early 2000s, but left the network in 2008. She has reportedly been shopping a tell-all book this year.

'Alien: Covenant': Katherine Waterston on Becoming a Next-Gen Action Hero

20 May 2017 7:19 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Katherine Waterston is sprawled on the floor of her dressing room. "I hurt my back a few days ago," she explains, slightly embarrassed. "It's not as bad as it looks, trust me." Waterston is backstage at the Good Morning America studios in Manhattan, having just appeared with a handful of her Alien: Covenant costars to stump for the movie on the morning-show circuit; right now, however, she's half-prone, half-sitting on the ground, and well aware that she resembles a vulnerable tangle of limbs stuck in the middle of an advanced yoga position. »
