Alyssa Farah Griffin, Tara Setmayer Likely to Fill Open Seat on “The View”

The NY Post reports that Alyssa Farah Griffin and Tara Setmayer are the likely candidates to fill the open conservative seat on “The View.”

It’s been nearly a year since Meghan McCain exited “The View,” leaving the conservative viewpoint on the show empty and being filled by a rotating guest of co-hosts. However, the New York Post reports that this could be coming to an end. 

The Post states that the open seat on the panel will come down to two people who have served as frequent guest co-hosts. Alyssa Farah Griffin, the 33-year-old former communications director for President Donald Trump, and former GOP communications director Tara Setmayer, 46. 

“You are starting to see familiar faces over and over,” a source told The Post. “I would expect an announcement before the season ends on August 5.”

“If you watch the show, you can see people who are coming back regularly to join the co-hosts at the table. It is an invaluable experience for the show. And it was always the plan to make sure they had a seat at the table.”

Regarding which of the two women is the favorite for the position, the report cites sources hinting that Farrah is likely to be the frontrunner. A spokesperson for ABC hasn’t responded to The Post’s request for a statement.

Meanwhile, conservative author and media pundit Ann Coulter told The Post in the past that the open seat on “The View” is something she would be willing to take on if offered the position. 

“Yes, of course, I would [take the job], but they will never pick me,” Coulter said. “[It seems] they don’t mean what they say. You might be exposing a double-secret requirement: Must be a dumb, easy-to-push-around Republican.”

    They should not give the job to Alisa Farrah Griffin and Tara Setomayer on The view because they’re not going to argue the conservative side.
    If the view wants to be FAIR they should get an Ann Coulter to be the permanent guest on the show so she doesn’t bow to everyone on the show and will stick up for conservative views and not the views of all the other liberals on that program. The country is divided that means about 50% believe in the opposite of what they believe. PLEASE give 50% of our United States of America a chance to show their views on 1/4 of 1/5 of the panel on The view.
    Come August I am never ever going to watch The view or buy any of the products that are advertised on that show if they don’t have someone to debate the other side of what about half that United States of America are thinking, not just you know who and the rest of the panel.
    We must land more in the center of politics or we will fail.
    United we stand divided we will fall.
    We must compromise!

Greg Gutfeld Executive Producer: We Won’t Be Wall-to-Wall Republican National Convention Just Because We’re in Milwaukee

“If there’s the kind of pop culture stuff that we do in the back half, we’ll still do that.”

Fox News is taking its entire primetime lineup to Milwaukee for the upcoming Republican National Convention. And while Greg Gutfeld will be on location, that doesn’t mean the convention will be the only topic of conversation.

Gutfeld! will air at 11 PM ET — an hour later than its usual time — during the convention to make way for a special news program hosted by Bret Baier and Martha MacCallum.

But the late-night show will be in the Wisconsin city speaking with a panel of usual guests. And with that usual cast of characters means that the content of the program isn’t likely to change from its usual format.

“It’s people who Greg loves and has good chemistry with,” Executive Producer Tom O’Connor told TVNewser. “I don’t think it’ll be wall-to-wall RNC coverage for the whole hour, either. If there’s the kind of pop culture stuff that we do in the back half, we’ll still do that. That’s stuff that Greg always wants to talk about.”

O’Connor added that “It was an easy decision” to move Gutfeld! to Milwaukee for the Republican National Convention. He continued by noting that Greg Gutfeld being more comfortable as the host of the show allows for more on-location programs.

Tucker Carlson has been off TV since his April 2023 ouster from Fox News. That’s about to change with the launch of an app for his Tucker Carlson Network.

In an email to subscribers, the Tucker Carlson Network revealed “Our team has spent months developing the new TCN TV app, and it’s about to go live. When this app is released, you’ll be able to watch Tucker on your TV at any time.

The Tucker Carlson Network app will join a growing field of smart TV apps in recent months. Nearly every network news outlet has a free, ad-supported TV streaming app with products like NBC News Now, ABC Live, and the recently rebranded CBS News 24/7.

It is unclear if the new app will require a subscription to the network to watch the various video programs being produced by the former cable news host.

Currently, subscriptions to the platform cost $9 monthly or $72 for the entire year.
