When Does ‘The View’ Return With Live Episodes in 2020?

Meghan McCain from The View has been extra quiet lately but that’s only because the show has been on a break. The show hosted by Whoopi Goldberg, Joy Behar, Abby Huntsman, Sunny Hostin, and McCain is off for the holidays but they will soon be back. Fans are anxious to see the ladies return to the “Hot Topics” table to debate the latest in politics and pop culture.

ABC has been airing reruns in its regular time slot and new episodes will begin airing on Monday, January 6. That’s the magical day when the women will once again give all of its viewers context on the hottest topics of the day. How long until McCain’s latest tantrum? When will Goldberg lose her patience with McCain? The new year brings more possibilities and entertainment to everyone that watches daily.

Whoopi Goldberg and Meghan McCain blowout

In the last week of original episodes, Goldberg and McCain shared a moment that took social media by storm. As things at the “Hot Topics” table heated up, Goldberg told McCain to “stop talking.” The environment was tense for the rest of the show and it was until the next day, the ladies addressed the issue.

“Things get heated on this show,” Goldberg explained at the top of the show. “If you watch this show, you know this has happened over the years. We’re really passionate. This is our jobs. We come in, we talk to each other, sometimes we’re not as polite as we could be. That’s just the way it is. But you’re going to be dealing with the same thing when you sit around your table with your family and you don’t agree, or somebody says something and goes off the rails. This is part of what we do.”

McCain said there’s no beef between her and the moderator of the ABC talk show as she considers her family.

“I love you very much. I’ve loved you for a long time,” McCain told Golberg. “You were good friends with my dad. We fight like we’re family. It’s all good. We’re not tearing the set apart. Calm down, all of you, okay? It’s all good… I think it is a lens into what’s happening politically in the country. America’s at very heated levels right now and I don’t love it. But it is representative of what’s going on and it is raw and real. We are all passionate women. I am hyper, hyper-conservative, everybody else at the table is not. Sometimes we’re going to clash heads.”

Meghan McCain thinks about getting fired

McCain has led most of the controversial moments on The View in the last months. During an appearance on Watch What Happens Live, the conservative co-host revealed that she always assumes she is going to get fired from the talk show.

“I go in assuming I’m going to be fired every day,” McCain told Andy Cohen, the show’s host. “Every single day. Yes, every day.”

When the Bravo presenter asked if she had ever been closed to getting the ax from the show, she explained.

“It’s more the tone we are [at] culturally, people get canceled so easily,” she explained. “And by the way, Joy has this same thing, because we are the most honest and raw. And we’re always going to say something that is going to be too far one way. So I say it sort of jokingly, but sort of not.”

The View airs weekdays at 11 a.m. ET and 10 a.m. CT/PT.
