The View Reportedly Finds Two New Panelists

Season 18 of The View was a rebuilding one. The veteran daytime chatfest moved into a new studio and overhauled the panel, leaving Whoopi Goldberg as the sole returnee. Fast forward to Season 19, and once again the Ghost actress is the last woman standing. Rosie Perez, Rosie O’Donnell and Nicole Wallace just didn’t work out.

The View has already announced Michelle Collins and Ravyen-Symone as permanent co-panelists moving forward. It appears producers have found two more women to usher in yet another new era for the once watercooler show.

Not surprisingly, Candace Cameron Bure is poised to become one of the new co-hosts. She easily fills the resident conservative SLASH religious spot. She’s guest hosted a handful of times and already butted heads with Raven. Did you see their heated debate about the bakery that wouldn’t bake a wedding cake for a lesbian couple? Talk about tense. These two will undoubtedly bring plenty of fireworks with their opposing viewpoints.

Another Rosie has bit the dust. Just six months after joining the panel, Rosie Perez is leaving The View. The White Man Can’t Jump actress is the second panelist to leave this season, following in Rosie O’Donnell’s footsteps.

O’Donnell and Perez were added, along with Nicole Wallace, as part of a major overhaul of the long-running daytime show this year. It appears more huge changes are in store for Season 19. Raven-Symoné was recently hired as a permanent host and it is expected frequent stand-in, comedian Michelle Collins, will be added as well.

Executive Producer Bill Wolff broke the news today in an email sent out to the staff. Read it below.

Portia de Rossi isn’t the only one being promoted from recurring status to series regular. Cornelius Smith Jr. is also getting upgraded for Scandal Season 5.

The 33-year-old made his debut as activist Marcus Walker during the riveting Ferguson-inspired episode. He appeared later in the season when his character was framed for murder during his mayoral bid.

Details of Smith’s return are still under wraps, but I suspect he might be the new ‘gladiator.’ Since Harrison’s (Columbus Short) departure and Abby (Darby Stanchfield) now working in the White House, Olivia Pope & Associates has been on a skeleton staff for far too long.

Scandal returns to ABC for another OMG season starting on Thursday, September 24. Excited to see more of Cornelius? Sound off below.

When Secrets and Lies returns for its sophomore season, Juliette Lewis will be the sole actor to reprise her role. Ryan Phillippe signed on for only one season. In addition, if you ventured to ABC.com after the season finale, it appeared (SPOILER ALERT) that his character died in prison.

It’s no easy feat to follow in Phillippe’s footsteps, but producers have found themselves an equally attractive male lead. Find out who below.

Fans of Grey’s Anatomy are still reeling from the shocking death of Derek “Dr. McDreamy” Shepherd. While no one can truly replace him in their eyes, it appears producers have found themselves a Patrick Dempsey doppelgänger.

Showrunner Shonda Rhimes has chosen Martin Henderson as Seattle Grace’s newest doctor. This isn’t the first time the 40-year-old actor has starred in a Shondaland series. He appeared in the short-lived ABC drama, Off the Map.

Henderson’s other notable credits include feature films The Ring, Smokin’ Aces and the upcoming Everest co-starring Jake Gyllenhaal. He also played the Ryan Phillippe role in the Aussie Secret and Lies.

Do you think Martin is as dreamy as Patrick? Is there a resemblance? Will fans warm up to another man bedding Ellen Pompeo? Weigh in below.

Clearly, ABC loved the pilot for Of Kings and Prophets. It received a plum Sunday night slot on the alphabet network’s schedule. With regards to further episodes though, it’s not feeling that bullish.

The epic Biblical saga has been pulled from ABC’s Fall schedule. Reportedly, the show will undergo some recasting and it will debut at a later date. Taking over the coveted spot is Quantico. Ironically, the show will also see change as well- Dougray Scott who appeared in that pilot will be recast.

The FBI drama was originally slated to air on Tuesday. ABC hasn’t had great luck in the 10pm slot on Tuesdays for years, so this bodes well for Quantico. The series follows a group of recruits at the FBI training base. The big twist is one of them becomes a suspect for masterminding the biggest attack on New York City since 9/11. Check out both trailers below.

If you love Portia de Rossi on Scandal, it’s your lucky day. Her character, Elizabeth “Lizzie Bear” North won’t be hibernating anytime soon. The 42-year-old actress has been promoted to series regular for the ABC drama’s fifth season. She revealed the news in an interview with TVLine.com.

“I’ve been here for the entire season, so, honestly, I already feel like I’m part of the family. It would’ve been very sad for me not to come back. And to come back with a guarantee of a few more episodes than [I was in this season] is really fantastic. It’s just a great ensemble cast. And we’re all really excited about the show — still. I came on as a fan, but all the actors are just as excited as when they first started the show. And I love Shonda Rhimes. I love Shonda Rhimes.” Portia tells TVLine.com
