"The View" replaces Vieira with....

Rosie O'Donnell, who won six Daytime Emmys as host of her own talk show, will soon be taking in a new "View" of daytime television.

O'Donnell is set to replace Meredith Vieira on "The View," according to several news reports (the syndicated show "Extra" broke the story). Vieira is headed to NBC's "Today" later this year, a move precipitated by Katie Couric's departure to CBS News.

A gig on "The View" would mark a return to a regular television presence for O'Donnell, who hosted a self-titled daytime show from 1996-2002. She won six straight Emmys for outstanding talk show host from 1997-2002, and in all of those years beside '97, the show won an Emmy as well.

She was often called "The Queen of Nice" during her time on "The Rosie O'Donnell Show," but she's become much more outspoken about politics and other issues in recent years, which could make for some interesting sparring sessions on "The View."

O'Donnell and her partner, Kelli O'Donnell, produced the recent HBO documentary "All Aboard! Rosie's Family Cruise," about the maiden voyage of a cruise for gay families (the pair also founded the travel company that offers the cruise).

Rosie O'Donnell's other recent TV credits include the CBS movie "Riding the Bus with My Sister" and a recurring role on Showtime's "Queer As Folk."

Rosie keeps talking trash on her blog about Star Jones, it should be interesting to see how they handle being on the same show.

Worst hire ever! At least they could have replaced her with a credible journalist with personality like Meredith who can carry the show. Now, it's going to be "The Rosie O'Donnel show" on ABC.

I think it's a revolting choice. O'Donell's a has-been. And really, how insulting is it to hire Rosie after her tirades aganist Star Jones...

Rosie, Star Jones and Joy Behar on the same show?

How much loudmouthed stupidity do they think America can handle??

Don't answer that.

I expect major catfights. With any luck maybe some hair-pulling.

Do any of you actually watch The View on a regular basis to actually care who replaces Meredith? I think I've seen The View twice in the last three years. At that rate the most irritating person in showbiz could replace Meredith Vieira without me caring.

I suppose she'll be with them on the Daytime Emmys tonight. No other reason to have leaked it this early.

You can understand what she's talking about on her blog? I feel like I need some secret decoder ring just to decipher what the fuck she's babbling about.

Sample entry:

since returning
i have peeled every nail
to stop the picking
nightly unaware

knuckles i use
on rose a sha
adult zits without heads
puberty at last
red welts a go go

read motherless mothers
gratitude for hope
again

a fly the size of an olive
just landed on the sheet
now i will not sleep
cause of that jeff goldbloom movie

i saw anne rice
and elton john
in one night
and kissed them both

i love my life

idol is on now
i wonder if paula will cry
or be slurry

whassss up dooogggg

I don't think I've seen it since the first week it premiered. It is odd, though, that they're breaking the format a bit... Didn't they really need another cool-headed figure who's *not* an ignoramous or a loose cannon to replace Vierra in that slot? It's like having too many Adam Carollas and not enough Dr. Drews.
