♦ The title for the daytime series’ original pilot was The View From Here.

The View originally taped in the space that had been home to the cancelled ABC soap opera The City. (Its set from Season 18 on, meanwhile, once upon a time had been horse stables, and as a TV studio it hosted the famous Kennedy/Nixon debate.

♦ In August 2009, when The View‘s Barbara Walters, Whoopi Goldberg, Joy Behar, Elisabeth Hasselbeck and Sherri Shepherd won the Daytime Emmy for Outstanding Talk Show Host, it marked the very first time the award had gone to multiple people. (Fun fact within a fun fact: That Emmy-winning submission featured Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama.)

ABC View Cantone♦ The guest to put in the most appearances over the years, with a total of 132 visits, is… Mario Cantone. (Last season’s most frequent guest, meanwhile, was Senator and onetime presidential candidate Amy Klobuchar, who swung by four times.)

♦ To date, there have been 22 co-hosts — Walters, Behar, Meredith Vieira, Star Jones, Debbie Matenopoulos, Lisa Ling, Hassselbeck, Rosie O’Donnell, Goldberg, Shepherd, Jenny McCarthy, Nicole Wallace, Rosie Perez, Raven-Symone, Michelle Collins, Candace Cameron Bure, Paula Faris, Sara Haines (who returns to the dais this season), Sunny Hostin, Jebediah Bila, Meghan McCain and Abby Huntsman — plus guest co-host Ana Navarro.

♦ Excluuuusive fun fact! In a July 2019 poll of TVLine readers that asked you to pick your “dream team” of five co-hosts, the top vote-getters were Joy Behar (with 15% of the votes), Whoopi Goldberg (14%), Meredith Vieira (9%), Sunny Hostin (8%) and Ana Navarro (8%). Dwelling in the bottom two spots were Michelle Collins and Debbie Matenopoulos, each of whom netted less than 1% of the votes.

♦ Current POTUS Donald Trump has been on The View a total of 18 times, including two call-ins; he last appeared in-person in June 2014. Joe Biden has been on nine times, including when on April 22, 2010 he became the first sitting VP to be a guest on the show.

♦ Four ladies have welcomed (or will welcome) the birth of at least one of their children while serving as a co-host on The View: Hasselbeck, Haines, Huntsman and soon-to-be mom McCain.

SNL The View

Saturday Night Live has spoofed the show a total of 13 times over the years.

♦ Looking ahead, the new season’s very first guest on Tuesday will be former White House spokesperson Sarah Huckabee Sanders (promoting her new book Speaking for Myself). On Wednesday, the First Lady’s former friend Stephanie Winston Wolkoff will discuss her tell-all, Melania and Me. Thursday brings Jane Fonda (author of What Can I Do?) and GMA co-anchor Robin Roberts, while on Friday it’s “The Political View” with former Ohio Governor John Kasich, plus Eva Longoria.
