"The View," recipient of the 2003 Daytime Emmy® Award for "Outstanding Talk Show," is ABC Daytime's morning chatfest, featuring a team of dynamic women of different ages, experiences and backgrounds discussing the most exciting events of the day. The program has received critical acclaim since premiering August 11, 1997. It's broadcast live weekdays from New York City (11:00 a.m.-12:00 noon, ET; CLOSED-CAPTIONED; broadcast in stereo; TV-14).
"The View" features Barbara Walters, Whoopi Goldberg, Sherri Shepherd and Jenny McCarthy. "The View" consists of hot topics in the news, the best experts in their field, celebrity interviews and general entertainment. The program is now in its 17th season on ABC.
The 2013-2014 season will mark Barbara Walters farewell season on the daytime show she created as she celebrates her final year on broadcast television. Ms. Walters' unparalleled career began in 1961 as a writer and on-the-air reporter for the "Today Show."
In September, 2008, the show launched a highly successful "Red, White & View" campaign highlighting interviews and informational segments that helped promote civic responsibility during the election season. The "Red, White & View" campaign was another example of how "The View" established itself as an important player in the political process. "For politicians, 'The View,' on ABC is a halfway house in between a CNN interrogation and the razzing of 'The Daily Show with Jon Stewart'"(The New York Times, March 2008). "You Need to Know about ('The View') because all the political candidates show up on it eventually, and the panelists engage one another in some of the sharpest and most intensely publicized conversations about various matters of urgent public concerns" (Arkansas-Democrat Gazette, August 2008).
"The View" is the recipient of 29 Daytime Emmy® Awards, numerous Daytime Emmy Award nominations, including 11 consecutive nominations for Outstanding Talk Show and 13 consecutive nominations for Outstanding Talk Show Host. Daytime Emmy® Award history was made on August 30, 2009 inside the historic Orpheum Theater in Los Angeles when on-stage presenters Jeannie Garth and Lori Loughlin announced that "The View" hosts, Barbara Walters, Whoopi Goldberg, Joy Behar, Elisabeth Hasselbeck and Sherri Shepherd, were named Outstanding Talk Show Host. It was the first time in the 36 year history of the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences (NATAS) that multiple talk show hosts were bestowed this honor. The winning submission for the hosts, dated March 28, 2008, featured then Democratic Presidential candidate, Senator Barack Obama.
In Addition "The View" received the 2009, 2011 and 2013 NAACP Image Award for Outstanding Talk Series, the Gracie Award from the Foundation of American Women in Radio and Television, two Prism Commendations presented by the Entertainment Industries Council & National Institute on Drug Abuse, the GLAAD Media Award for Outstanding TV Talk Show, the Los Angeles Daily News Reader's Choice Award for Best Morning Talk Show, the Good Housekeeping Great Works Award, and was also voted Favorite Talk Show by Viewers Voice, Inc., a non-profit organization that supports television programming.
In May 2009, "The View" hosts were chosen as one of the "100 Most Influential People in the World" by Time. In July, 2009 Forbesranked "The View" #11 among "30 of the Most Influential Women in Media." Additionally, they appeared in the "Time 100/Anderson Cooper 360° Special: The World's Most Influential People."
In May 2001, the co-hosts were awarded the Safe Horizon Champion Award for their continued efforts to raise awareness on issues of importance to girls and women. In March 2002, "The View" received the Linda Dano Heart Award from Heartshare Human Services of New York for its programming philosophy that brought enlightenment, entertainment and comfort to families throughout the Nation and New York in the wake of September 11, 2001.
The co-hosts have appeared together on "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno," "Charlie Rose," "Larry King Live," HBO's "Entourage," "Tyler Perry's Madea Goes to Jail," "Ugly Betty" and their own "Super View" segment, broadcast during the Super Bowl pre-game show in January 2000.
