Someone’s ready to get started on a brand new year!
Comedan Michelle Collins — one of several new hosts who will headline The View this season on ABC — has given EW an exclusive sneak peek at Tuesday’s premiere lineup. Besides a guest who reminds Collins of cheese, one is a politician, another is an ex-SNL funnyman, and another one is — well, she’s not spilling anything about that special guest because she simply doesn’t know his (or her) identity.
She also has a few things to tease about the upcoming season: the gals were given a big budget, baby! “Nothing is too rich for The View‘s taste,” Collins promises.
The ABC talk show will reboot on Tuesday with three new players and one founding member. Candace Cameron Bure (Fuller House) and Paula Faris (Good Morning America Weekend) will join the recently hired Collins and Raven-Symoné at the table. Joy Behar also will rejoin the franchise that she left in 2013.
In addition, The View hired a group of contributors to shore up the chatfest, including former host Sherri Shepherd, Padma Lakshmi, Stacy London, Ana Navarro, and Molly Sims.
The View airs weekdays at 11 a.m. ET on ABC.
