(Newser) – ABC is starting to fill in Whoopi Goldberg's future seatmates on the View. TMZ reports that Rosie O'Donnell has already signed on, with the producers still on the hunt for a Latina and a conservative. (Abby Hunstman is apparently in the running for the latter category.) Fans will recall that O'Donnell served as moderator on the show in 2006-07 before breaking her contract in the wake of a nasty on-air feud with Elisabeth Hasselbeck, notes US Weekly. Today, the outgoing Sherri Shepherd and Jenny McCarthy played nice before the cameras, reportedly on the network's orders.

I suggest Vana White and Sabrina the Teen Age Witch or are two witches too much?

It is interesting that the show has nose dived since Elisabeth Hasselbeck left the show.

Bring the pig back that killed the show. I give it six months.
