Jenny McCarthy Compares The View to the Titantic: It's Going Down!

by at .

Jenny McCarthy was only a panelist on The View for one year, which is exact same amount of time she now gives the talk show to survive.

Appearing this morning on The Howard Stern Show with husband Donnie Wahlberg, McCarthy was asked about the struggling ABC program.

"They might try one more year and then I think the Titanic might go down," the 42-year old quipped.

Jenny McCarthy as a Host

It certainly is the case that The View has suffered from a revolving door of panelists in its 18 seasons on the air.

McCarthy, for instance, left after just one season in 2014. She was jettisoned along with veteran host Sherri Shepherd, who'd been on the series since season 11.

More recently, Rosie O'Donnell announced her second departure from The View after a short tenure in charge.

Wahlberg, meanwhile, spoke up on his wife's behalf, informing Stern that View producers actually brought up the idea of McCarthy returning to the show.

"She's very gracious about The View, and I will say, I told her the day that she left, I said, 'They're gonna ask you back within six months,'" he explained. "And she won't say it, but they did. Not officially, but they did."

McCarthy now hosts a show on SiriusXM titled "Dirty, Sexy, Funny. And she's clearly a fan of it.

"I couldn't be happier here, Howard," McCarthy raved. "I've never been more happy with a job in my entire life...I get to be myself.”

The View is yet to announce a replacement for O'Donnell, but we've got some ideas...
