Los Angeles (CNN) — Comedic actress Jenny McCarthy will fill one of the empty seats around the table on “The View” vacated by Joy Behar and Elisabeth Hasselbeck, ABC announced Monday.


McCarthy, who has been on the daytime talk show 17 times — eight as a co-host — will become a permanent co-host when season 17 kicks off on September 9, according to the network.


“Jenny brings us intelligence as well as warmth and humor,” said “View” co-founder Barbara Walters. “She can be serious and outrageous. She has connected with our audience and offers a fresh point of view.”
