Rosie ODonnell Is Returning to <i>The View</i>

Comedian Rosie ODonnell will rejoin ABCs The View as the programs producers look to shake things up on one of the longest running d

ay-time talk shows ever, the network confirmed Thursday. ODonnell, an often provocative television personality whose own talk show ended in 2002, was previously a panelist on The View but left in 2007 after only one season.

ABC said ODonnell will co-host The

View with current moderator Whoopi

Goldberg. ODonnell will join a heavily modified crew after a series of prominent departures which included the retirement of the shows co-founder Barbara Walters in May.  Most Popular on TIME
