It’s Official: ‘The View’ Adds Meghan McCain as Conservative Co-Host (Exclusive)

It’s Official: ‘The View’ Adds Meghan McCain as Conservative Co-Host (Exclusive)
Meghan McCain has officially signed onto “The View” as a regular co-host, Variety has learned exclusively.

McCain’s hire comes just days after she left Fox News, and shortly after the ABC daytime show parted ways with Jedidiah Bila.

McCain is expected to start in early October, joining the panel of Whoopi Goldberg, Joy Behar, Sara Haines, Paula Faris, and Sunny Hostin.

ABC declined to comment on McCain.

Insiders say “The View” nabbed McCain because the show needs a stronger conservative voice, which it has been lacking since Elisabeth Hasselbeck left in 2013 when the series was buzzier, frequently making headlines for in-show sparring between the co-hosts with different political views.

McCain — the daughter of U.S. Senator and 2008 presidential nominee John McCain — has described herself as a Republican with liberal views on several social issues.

Since creator Barbara Walters retired in May 2014, “The View” has been playing a game of musical chairs, enduring

A Look Back at NBC's Infamous Flop Emeril, From Co-Star Carrie Preston

A Look Back at NBC's Infamous Flop Emeril, From Co-Star Carrie Preston
Hey, remember when celebrity chef Emeril Lagasse had his own NBC sitcom that got yanked off the air after a couple months? Well, Carrie Preston does… because she was in it.

A decade before she won an Emmy for The Good Wife, Preston played kooky (and blonde!) food stylist B.D. Benson on Emeril, which lasted just seven episodes in the fall of 2001. Starring Lagasse as (what else?) a TV chef, Emeril was created by Designing Women alum Linda Bloodworth-Thomason, with a supporting cast that included TV veteran Robert Urich and future The View co-host Sherri Shepherd. But critics were

‘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

NBC Renews John Lithgow’s Comedy ‘Trail & Error’ for Season 2

NBC Renews John Lithgow’s Comedy ‘Trail & Error’ for Season 2
NBC has renewed freshman comedy “Trial & Error” for a 10-episode second season, Variety has learned.

Though the show, which stars John Lithgow, has not been a ratings hit, insiders say it has been a favorite of NBC boss Bob Greenblatt.

The comedy aired twice per week during its spring run, bringing in 3.9 million viewers overall — not as strong as NBC’s other comedies “The Good Place” or “Superstore,” both of which were renewed early.

In Variety‘s review of the series, critic Sonia Soraiya praised the series, comparing its elements to those of “Parks and Recreation,” “30 Rock,” and “The Office.” She wrote, “The show is a lighthearted, zany spoof of shows like ‘The Jinx’ and ‘Making a Murderer,’ those true-crime documentary series that take a viewer into the real-time investigation of a convoluted case.”

TV Review: ‘Trial & Error’ on NBC, Starring John Lithgow

“Trial & Error” should not be as funny as it is. The sitcom is kind of a tea-cozy murder mystery with a bemused affection for its rural setting that is reminiscent of NBC’s departed “Parks and Recreation,” full of punchy one-liners like “30 Rock,” and in a mockumentary format like “The Office.” The new NBC comedy seems to have been carefully constructed from elements of great Must-See-TVs of yore, and that’s a process that doesn’t always yield great programming. Even the idiosyncratic ensemble that gathers around the case also feels like an homage to “Parks and Recreation” — there’s the too-cool young brunette, the “citified” lawyer from “elsewhere,” a black woman with the funniest lines on the whole show, and a dedicated public servant determined to make her mark. And to top it all off, “Trial & Error” is headlined by John Lithgow, who won three Emmys as the lead of NBC’s long-running “3rd Rock from
