JENNY McCARTHY: View Gig Official

It's official -- Jenny McCarthy will be co-hosting The View this fall.

ABC and Barbara Walters just made the announcement. Barbara says, "Jenny brings us intelligence as well as warmth and humor. She can be serious and outrageous. She has connected with our audience and offers a fresh point of view. Jenny will be a great addition to the show as we usher in an exciting new chapter for The View."

There's still no word on who else will be joining. The show had two chairs to fill with the departures of Joy Behar and Elisabeth Hasselbeck.
