Jenny McCarthy might be out on ‘The View’

Jenny McCarthy

I haven’t seen The View in forever, mostly because if I want to see a bunch of awful people scream at each other over social justice issues, I can just go on Tumblr, but apparently Jenny McCarthy is on the panel. Sure, she pooped her pants and thinks a tenure on MTV translates into doctoral degree, but I guess they needed to round out the numbers. Unfortunately, it turns out no one actually wanted to see her, and now she might be out the door unless she can turn it around. RadarOnline reports …

“ABC has begun doing deep research on Jenny’s work on the show and the initial findings are that viewers want to tune out the second she opens her mouth!” the source told Radar. “The data has revealed that she is FAR more off-putting than Elisabeth.” Although The View titan Barbara Walters, 84, who is retiring from broadcasting in summer 2014, “isn’t looking for a replacement for Jenny yet, she is obsessed with ratings and the longevity of the show, so Jenny needs to turn it around or she will be gone.” The source is unclear if McCarthy’s deal is for one year or two, but said that “if Barbara wants her out, they will buy out her contract. “Right now they’re just trying to adjust Jenny’s performance on the show so that she comes off as more appealing, but that’s an uphill battle.”

It takes a lot of obnoxiousness to make yourself the least likable person on The View, but I guess congratulations to Jenny! She found a way to do it. I’d say she really sh!t herself this time, but considering that’s totally something she not only did in real life but proceeded to tell everyone about, I think that might be a good thing for her.

Sh!t to be thankful for: Jenny McCarthy pooping herself both literally and figuratively.
