Sherri Shepherd officially signed off of The View after seven seasons with an episode that served as an hourlong tribute to the co-host.
The hour kicked off with Arsenio Hall joining the ladies' table and the audience chanting "Sher-ri." She then tearfully talked about being "profoundly grateful" for the opportunity.

"This has been one of the best seven years of my life. I tell people, step out of the fear, because I didn't want to take this job, because I'm not a prosecutor, I don't know anything," she said. "I have to say my boss, Barbara Walters, pushed me. I cried in my dressing room for three years saying, 'What am I doing on this table?'"
All 11 past and current co-hosts of The View reunited Thursday to wish Barbara Walters well in retirement.
The team from ABC's Good Morning America sent a bucket of golf balls to Matt Lauer to congratulate him on his new deal to remain at NBC's Today. But the game for ratings leadership will only get more intense.

Star Jones returned to The View Wednesday, almost six years after she left the show under unpleasant circumstances.
"It was ugly, everything around was ugly," Jones, 49, observed. "It was a bad, emotional time. Nasty things were being said in the media. It was just not a good emotional time." Jones, who was on the show to promote women's heart health, seemed surprised by Walters' line of questioning about her controversial exit. "I had eight fantastic years here. One was 'eh,'" she said. "I came back to congratulate you on all you accomplished. I hope you congratulate me on what I accomplished."

As he makes a splashy and controversial start to explore running for president, Donald Trump has been compared to P.T. Barnum. But is the showman really ready to trade in the boardroom on NBC's Celebrity Apprentice — in his words, "a ratings and demographic phenomenon" — for the Oval Office?

This season of The Celebrity Apprentice has no shortage of extreme celeb behavior... thank God! A big part the show's entertainment value comes from getting to watch fame's absurd effect on real-life situations. Celebrities flail with more vigor, fail with more melodrama and generally attack the portrait of life with the broadest strokes possible... or so reality TV tells us. It's a logical effect, given that we're watching natural entertainers — or aspiring ones, at least. A few examples of the way fame intensified situations on this week's art-fundraising episode are below...
