According to TMZ sources, producers want to see Sanchez's chemistry with Goldberg in order to determine if Sanchez would make a strong permanent co-host of the ABC program.

View co host?

The View, of course, is undergoing a major transformation.

Rumors that Meghan McCain would be joining The View as the panel discussion show's resident Republican have been circulating for weeks now.

We recently reported that Meghan and Leah Remini were the front-runners to fill the vacant fifth seat at the roundtable, with McCain being slightly favored by producers.

Now it looks as though the job may be Leah's by default, as Meghan has reportedly turned down an offer from ABC in favor of sticking with her current gig with the online news show TakePart Live.

"Network execs really wanted her to be their new Elisabeth Hasselbeck, because of her Republican stance," a source tells Radar Online. "But ultimately Meghan turned it down. She doesn't mind doing geust appearances on the show, but it's not something she wants to do full time."

When word spread that Georgina Haig was cast as Elsa on Once Upon a Time, millions of obsessive Frozen fans wondered if the Fringe actress would be up to the task of embodying Disney's icy queen with the golden pipes.

Well, it looks like it's time to let it go, everyone. Elsa is clearly in good hands:

Georgiana Haig as Elsa

That's Georgina as Elsa and while she may not be a natural Elsa lookalike like Anna Faith Carlson, it's amazing what the right hair and costuming can accomplish.

The series teased last season that Elsa would be prominently featured in Once Upon a Time season four. It's been hinted that Elsa will be Storybrooke's main villain, but little has been confirmed about what sort of role Haig will actually play.

After firing Jenny McCarthy and Sherri Shepherd, The View was left with two empty seats at its famous round table. 

Rosie O'Donnell is returning to the show next season, a prospect that has many fans excited. But without an equally strong personality to keep her in check, there's a chance that Rosie may dominate the proceedings. 

The Rosie vs. Elisabeth Hasselbeck debates made for some of The View's best moments (and highest ratings), but it's unlikely that fans would want to tune in for midday fisticuffs season after season.

Plus, the intensity of the O'Donnell and Hasselbeck's arguments ended up taking a toll on the entire panel.

So producers are left with the challenge of keeping the discussions lively (a bunch of women sitting around agreeing with each other doesn't make for great television), without leaving the show's panel and audience bitterly divided.

The View has reportedly cast a wide net in its search for talent, with two front-runners quickly emerging:

If you've read any reviews for LeAnn Rimes and Eddie Cibrian's new VH1 series, then you know that LeAnn & Eddie might be the worst reality show ever.

But people watch lots of terrible shows starring no-talent hacks, right? After all, Keeping Up With the Kardashians is in its ninth season and we'd bet Kim doesn't even watch anymore.

Maybe viewers would ignore the critics and the fact that Rimes and Cibrian are terrible people, and just watch the darn thing anyway.

Hahaha! Glad you were able to convince yourselves of that, VH1 execs!

An estimated 374,000 people tuned into the premiere episode of LeAnn & Eddie. To put that in perspective, the episode was beaten in the ratings by reruns of COPS and Seinfeld, and a Nickelodoen sitcom called Dog With a Blog.

Game of Thrones fans know that one of the first in the series many shocking plot twists came at the end of season one, when Lord Eddard - Stark family patriarch and pretty much the only stand-up guy in King's Landing - had his head lopped off in a public execution.

Up until then, it seemed as though Ned Stark was to serve as the show's main protagonist, and viewers assumed he would go on to play the role of the grounded (though not always particularly bright) moral compass of the show for years to come.

Usually when a character gets his head chopped off and displayed on a spike, that means it's the last we'll see of them. Even in the land of White Walkers, that's one way to make sure your foe is well and truly dead.

But a popular fan theory, coupled with a surprising new interview with the man who portrayed Ned Stark has left many wondering if the Lord of Winterfell might actually return to GoT (spoilers lie ahead):
