Talk about Hot!
Just a day after the unofficial end of summer, TV’s The View comes back with a week-long guest list blitz that brings together some big names that are not commonly viewed on other TV programs.
David Letterman (The Late Show with David Letterman) appears on Tuesday, the first program following The View’s late summer vacation period.
Former Secretary of State Colin Powell joins The View panel for a guest appearance on Thursday.
In between, on Wednesday, Dr. Mehmet Oz appears, along with a performance by Jerry Lee Lewis.
On Friday comic-actor Danny DeVito visits the program, as does Megan McCain.
But first, there is a big return Tuesday of The View’s co-executive producer (along with Bill Geddie) Barbara Walters, who left the show in late spring for heart surgery. She has been off The View since then except for making a late July much-publicized one day return to be part of the visit of President Barack Obama (a program that is/was repeated on Labor Day).
This week marks the beginning of the 14th season of The View. Current panelists include Ms. Walters, Joy Behar, Sherri Shepherd, Elizabeth Hasselbeck and Whoopi Goldberg.
What’s more, The View will be celebrating their 3,000th show on September 23rd.
No doubt, since they haven’t been on in awhile, there will be lots of Hot Topics to catch up on, from heart surgery, to Iraq and Afghanistan to politics.
