The View Co-Hosts: RANKED!

by at .

The only thing consistent about the hosts on The View over the years has been a lack of consistency.

The talk show debuted in 1997 and has cycled through at least one new panelist on a nearly annual basis.

Who has been the best? The worst? The least memorable?

18. Star Jones

Star Jones
When you use this platform as a way to receive free wedding gifts, and then you lie about it, you automatically rank at the bottom.

17. Jenny McCarthy

Jenny McCarthy
Rule #2: When you don't believe in vaccinations, you also rank nearly as low as one can.

16. Elisabeth Hasselbeck

Elisabeth Hasselbeck
If you share her views on Fox News, you likely disagree with this ranking. Fair enough.

15. Candace Cameron Bure

Candace Cameron Bure
It's cool that the actress is a hardcore Christian. But we agree with Raven-Symone's facial expression here when it comes to some of the stuff she says.

14. Debbie Matenopoulos

Debbie Matenopoulos
She lasted just the very first season and was let go due to a lack of "chemistry," according to Barbara Walters

13. Rosie Perez

Rosie Perez
We could watch her in White Men Can't Jump for days on end. But she just wasn't on The View long enough to leave an impression.

12. Paula Faris

Paula Faris
Perfectly harmless, but that's not always a good thing. She has left basically no impression on viewers.

11. Sara Haines

Sara Haines
Debuted a permanent co-host for Season 20. She's bubbly and personable. Give her a few more months and we may raise her ranking.

10. Barbara Walters

Barbara Walters
We always got the feeling she was just one random rant away from having to be rushed to an old-age home. But what a career she's enjoyed!

9. Nicolle Wallace

Nicolle Wallace
Almost too normal for the show. We could have used her political experience and opinions for the 2016 election.

8. Raven-Symoné

Doesn't beat around a single bush, never minces a word and wins for most unique hairstyle.

7. Sherri Shepherd

Sherri Shepherd
She once said she didn't believe the world was round. But still... she was quite entertaining!

6. Rosie O'Donnell

Rosie O'Donnell
Did she take over the panel too often during her first stint? Absolutely. But she has always had a commanding television presence.

5. Michelle Collins

Michelle Collins
She was funny. She was self-deprecating. We miss her.

4. Lisa Ling

Lisa Ling
Far too serious and mature for The View, but that's also why we loved her on The View. Made sense why she left, from her own point of... view.

3. Joy Behar

Joy Behar
Tries a little too hard to be funny at times, but can't argue with how much the fans love her.

2. Whoopi Goldberg

Whoopi Goldberg
A great moderator. The perfect mix of series and funny, with a resume that almost demands respect.

1. Meredith Vieira

Meredith Vieira
But Whoopi is still second to Vieira. The original moderator managed the many personalities on The View while also expressing her own opinions on topics that ranged from the serious to the silly.
