Well, we can’t say it comes as a total shock, but after only 4 months, Rosie Perez is leaving the ABC morning talk show “The View,” according to Variety.

The scenario is being played out as Perez is away from the show to appear on Broadway in “Fish in the Dark.” But it appears she won’t have a seat at the table when her stage stint is done. In the meantime, the people in charge behind the scenes are gonna give younger co-host candidates a shot at Rosie’s seat.

“The View” has experienced a dramatic tumble in ratings in its 18th season with new co-hosts Rosie O’Donnell and Nicolle Wallace joining moderator Whoopi Goldberg. Perez was handpicked by the show’s new executive producer Bill Wolff as a last-minute choice after the show underwent a reinvention this past summer after the retirement of Barbara Walters.

The choice of Perez was a surprise, given the other contenders that were in the mix last year. But Perez never got a hang of the show’s mixture of hard and soft news, and she had trouble reading from a TelePrompTer, insiders say.

In addition to changes in front of the camera, there will also be some staff changes as well.

    Oh My!! maybe it’s time to have the Final Season. Yes, 18 years is definitely a long time to keep good ratings and their ratings have certainly fallen. Oprah did it for 25 and as it was waning, she said “Adios” – Long ago you could get good stuff from The View and now it’s today’s favorite topics

    They talk over each other and it is not an interesting show. I like Rosie Perez and Whoopie. The group didn’t mesh. O’Donnell tries to be funny but it falls flat.

    They are saying this is not true and Rosie will be back but I don’t believe it, quite frankly they need to replace the OTHER Rosie. Time to say good-bye to the show.

    If they weren’t so busy interrupting one another, then maybe viewership would increase. I refuse to watch a show where everyone is talking at once because no one is listening including me as a “would be” viewer.

    I like Rosie, but it was painful watching her try to give opinions and read the teleprompter. The show is no fun anymore anyway. Linda is correct, they should have kept Sherri!

  6. Back in the day this was an excellent program very informative, but the past several years it’s gotten too politically bias rather than entertaining and informative.
    Like Ms Curly says maybe it’s ship has sailed time to put in to dry dock
