1st season of Contributors:
The ratings took a dive during season 16. Since then there have been a lot of comings and goings on The View. It’s hard to remember the earlier co-hosts. The new season begins Tuesday, September 8, 2015 – it would be nice to see the co-hosts stick around for a bit. This revolving door is very hard to follow. The show is also bringing on contributors for the 19th season. Hopefully that helps.
