Jenny McCarthy faces the axe from The View

Oct 14 2013, 9:34am CDT | by Bang Showbiz

Jenny McCarthy may be axed from 'The View'.

The former Playboy model has raised eyebrows with her controversial hosting style on the US chat show and is proving less popular with viewers than former co-host Elisabeth Hasselbeck according to new figures, allegedly prompting ABC bosses to consider letting her go.

A source told RadarOnline.com: "ABC has begun doing deep research on Jenny's work on the show and the initial findings are that viewers want to tune out the second she opens her mouth!

"The data has revealed that she is far more off-putting than Elisabeth."

The decision about whether to fire the loud-mouthed blonde is said to lie entirely with veteran presenter Barbara Walters, 84, who is retiring from the show next summer.

The production insider added: "[Barbara] isn't looking for a replacement for Jenny yet, she is obsessed with ratings and the longevity of the show, so Jenny needs to turn it around or she will be gone.

"If Barbara wants her out, they will buy out her contract. Right now they're just trying to adjust Jenny's performance on the show so that she comes off as more appealing, but that's an uphill battle."

Controversial character Jenny has come under fire for claiming her nine-year-old son Evan's autism was caused by childhood immunizations.

According to The Wrap, 'The View' has seen minor dips in viewing figures since Jenny joined, averaging at 3.023 million total viewers compared to the 3.239 million it had in the first three weeks of its last season.

Jenny McCarthy Launches Her New Limited-Run SiriusXM Show "Dirty, Sexy, Funny With Jenny McCarthy," Live from the SiriusXM Studios
Jenny McCarthy, guys ... she's just terrible. You probably don't need a recap, but just in case you do, she's the one who thinks that vaccines cause autism and spews all kinds of nonsense all over the place. And this time, she's spewing more nonsense about her poor 12-year-old son. Gross, infuriating nonsense:"We're driving in the car and of course I text and drive. He called the police on me and said, 'My ...

Jenny McCarthy Launches Her New Limited-Run SiriusXM Show "Dirty, Sexy, Funny With Jenny McCarthy," Live from the SiriusXM Studios
Rumors that Meghan McCain would be joining The View as the panel discussion show's resident Republican have been circulating for weeks now. We recently reported that Meghan and Leah Remini were the front-runners to fill the vacant fifth seat at the roundtable, with McCain being slightly favored by producers. Now it looks as though the job may be Leah's by default, as Meghan has reportedly turned down an offer from ABC in favor of sticking with her current gig with the online ...

Jenny McCarthy Launches Her New Limited-Run SiriusXM Show "Dirty, Sexy, Funny With Jenny McCarthy," Live from the SiriusXM Studios
After firing Jenny McCarthy and Sherri Shepherd, The View was left with two empty seats at its famous round table.  Rosie O'Donnell is returning to the show next season, a prospect that has many fans excited. But without an equally strong personality to keep her in check, there's a chance that Rosie may dominate the proceedings.  The Rosie vs. Elisabeth Hasselbeck debates made for some of The View's best moments (and highest ratings), but it's unlikely that fans ...
