The View is cleaning house and freshening up. Jenny McCarthy has joined the panel as Joy Behar’s replacement.
The actress and former Playboy playmate was named Monday as co-host for the ABC weekday talk show. Barbara Walters, who created The View in 1997 and has served as a co-host, made the expected announcement on the air.
McCarthy will join The View as Joy Behar prepares to leave after being on the show since its premiere.
A remaining vacancy was created last week by Elisabeth Hasselbeck, who exited to join Fox News Channel.
Other co-hosts of The View include Sherri Shepherd and Whoopi Goldberg.
