The View co-hosts Joy Behar, Jedediah Bila, Candace Cameron Bure, Sara Haines and Sunny Hostin will host a special primetime Election Night edition of their ABC daytime talker at 9 PM Tuesday on Lifetime. The View Den Mom Whoopi Goldberg’s name was not on the list in ABC’s announcement.
Special correspondent SuChin Pak will provide live reports from the ground in Times Square that night and ABC News’ Juju Chang will share up-to-the-minute election results. Panelist Raven-Symoné, who had publicly pledged to move to Canada if the election doesn’t go her way (but also recently announced she’s leaving The View to move back to Los Angeles to develop a That’s So Raven reboot) will share her home search experience with FYI’s Tiny House Nation hosts John Weisbarth and Zack Giffin. Once the results are in, viewers will see if Raven will be moving into her “tiny house” in Canada or staying in the United States, ABC said in today’s announcement.
The 2½-hour broadcast also will include former Miss Universe Alicia Machado, Kathy Najimy, Vivica A. Fox, Mario Cantone, D.L.Hughley and Donald Trump impersonator Anthony Atamanuik.
The View Live Election Special will be produced by ABC in association with Lincoln Square Productions and executive produced by The View’s Candi Carter with Brian Teta as co-executive producer, Danielle Rossen for Lincoln Square Productions and Mary Donahue for Lifetime. Hilary Estey McLoughlin serves as executive in charge for Lincoln Square Productions.
