After 16 years of gossip, jokes, face-offs and political smackdowns, Joy Behar is signing off from The View on Aug. 9. Just why the devil is Behar leaving the ABC Daytime talk show’s roundtable? TV Guide Magazine’s Michael Logan got the skinny.

Not everyone seems to be thrilled ABC hired Jenny McCarthy as the newest co-host of The View. Many the medical community see to be wondering if the Mouse House’s daytime talk show will give McCarthy a platform to continue encouraging parents not to vaccinate their children.
Over the years, McCarthy has become a lightning rod for controversy, after claiming vaccinations were the reason her son Evan developed autism. The actress has made several appearances on television, including The Oprah Winfrey Show, and wrote a best-selling book, Healing and Prevention Autism: A Complete Guide, discussing her views on vaccinations.
According to USA Today, Amy Pisani, the executive director of Every Child by Two, an international vaccination group co-founded by former first lady Rosalynn Carter, stated:
Jenny McCarthy's unfounded claims about the dangers of vaccines has been one of the greatest impediments to efforts to vaccinate children in recent decades.
The group wrote into The View expressing their concerns and called on the show to rescind their offer to McCarthy.
