The View will kick off its 13th season on Sept. 8 with a new opening, new set and new faces — temporary ones.
With Elisabeth Hasselbeck, who gave birth to a son on Aug. 9, on maternity leave until mid-October, the ABC chatfest has lined up guest hosts to take its resident conservative's place. Meghan McCain, blogger and daughter of John McCain, will fill in Sept. 9-11, and former Fox News Channel anchor E.D. Hill will join the panel Sept. 23-24. McCain previously guest-hosted in April, during which she infamously told Dick Cheney and Karl Rove to "go away."
