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

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

At the time, politics was a taboo subject in daytime. And serious news anchors weren’t allowed to express their opinions. But under the watch of Walters and executive producer Bill Geddie

CNN Cancels Reza Aslan’s ‘Believer’ — And That Might Be A Warning to The Network’s Other Hosts
CNN announced today that it will not be picking up a second season of “Believer,” hosted by author and religious studies scholar Reza Aslan. In the first season of “Believer,” Aslan — who was a consulting producer for “The Leftovers,” contributing insight into the show’s religious themes — explored belief systems ranging from Vodou to ultra-Orthodox Judaism to Scientology (which he told Vulture has gotten a bad rap).

But that wasn’t the controversy which caused trouble for Aslan. “Believer” being dropped by CNN comes just days after Aslan, in an emotional moment, called Donald Trump “a piece of shit” on Twitter. He later followed up with an apology:
