“The View” lost Meghan McCain and inked Whoopi Goldberg to a new deal last year. While there is speculation regarding a possible retirement of Joy Behar, she has shot down those rumors with a brand new contract for herself, per the New York Post.
In 2020, Behar spoke with reporter Ramin Setoodeh and said she would probably leave the daytime talk show once her deal ended in 2022.
“I don’t see myself staying for more [time]. That’s it! I could be wrong. If I’m as fabulous in  as I am now, I’ll think about,” she said. “But the chances of that happening … You know, time marches on. I’m not a kid.”
However, it seems times have changed with Behar signing a three-year contract that will keep her on the show until 2025.
Behar, an original panelist remaining on “The View,” made $7 million per year as part of her previous three-year deal with the network, but the report doesn’t state if she garnered a pay bump. Nonetheless, it’s likely she rakes in an eight-figure salary thanks to the new contract.
Now that Behar has her extension, “The View” eyes to fill the McCain seat that’s been open for nearly a year, with Alyssa Farah Griffin and Tara Setmayer being the likely candidates.

Chris Wallace: Democrats Would Like Another Nominee in 2024
Wallace said Democrats don’t want Biden to run again in 2024 because of his age.
Chris Wallace joined CNN’s “At This Hour” to discuss a New York Times article suggesting that President Joe Biden shouldn’t run again.
According to a transcript published on Breitbart, Wallace said Democrats don’t want Biden to run again in 2024 because of his age.
“I think 75%of Democrats say they would like to see another Democratic nominee for president in 2024,” said Biden.
Wallace said he’s witnessed farewells plenty of times, especially in the media, which he referred to as the gold watch sent off.
“Look; obviously, the success after a lot of stalemate, the success of the last month or so by Joe Biden is impressive, and it will change the narrative,” Wallace said. “We will be talking about everything he has accomplished.”
‘You know what, I’m excited by the idea of a guy who on next inauguration day would be 82 running for election again,’ I’m not so sure about that,” he added.

John Oliver Takes Dig at Parent Owner Warner Bros. Discovery
Warner Bros. Discovery CEO David Zaslav was also a leading force in canceling CNN’s venture into the streaming wars
Warner Bros. Discovery has made recent headlines for its decisions regarding HBO Max and canceling in-production films, including DC’s “Batgirl,” to get future tax write-offs.
During a segment discussing Monkeypox on Sunday, HBO’s “Last Week Tonight” host John Oliver decided to take a shot at their new parent company for its recent decisions.
“We let the vaccine sit unused on a shelf in our reserves like an expired Chobani or a $90 million movie on HBO Max,” Oliver said, referring to the “Batgirl” film.
“By the way, hi there, new business daddy! Seems like you’re doing a really great job. I do get the vague sense that you’re burning down my network for the insurance money, but I’m sure that will all pass.”
Warner Bros. Discovery CEO David Zaslav was also a leading force in canceling CNN’s venture into the streaming wars, pulling the plug on CNN+ less than a month after the service launched.
“On CNN+, there was no message it was a business decision,” Zaslav told CNBC in May. “We looked at it and we looked at the data, the number of users they had spent an enormous amount of money trying to sell an independent product.
“The subscribers weren’t there, the users weren’t there. We looked at it together. We had a chance to look at all the data and when we looked at the data, it was, the business wasn’t there.”
