With her floppy hat and flapping gums, Jackie "Moms" Mabley is mostly remembered these days for her outrageous appearances on late-'60s and '70s-era variety and talk shows, as mainstream as Ed Sullivan and as of-the-moment as the Smothers Brothers, performing racy and politically barbed stand-up routines whose sting was couched in a dirty-old-lady's guise.
Among those influenced by Mabley was Whoopi Goldberg, who performed an homage to the comedian early in her own career. In the HBO documentary Whoopi Goldberg Presents Moms Mabley (Monday, 9/8c), the View personality directs and participates in this tribute to the pioneering comic's life and legacy, with TV clips and audio excerpts (enhanced with crude animation) from her many comedy albums, which hold up surprisingly well.

Another one (sadly) bites the dust.
Just one month after bidding adieu to Elisabeth Hasselbeck, The View said goodbye to one of the show's original co-hosts, Joy Behar.
"Welcome to quite a monumental day on The View," Whoopi Goldberg said on Friday' show. "After 16 seasons..."
So what! Who cares? We do! On Friday, Aug. 9, funny lady Joy Behar checks out of ABC's The View after 16 seasons of fabulous sass and unapologetically leftist commentary. TV Guide Magazine just had to sit her down for one last blabathon!
TV Guide Magazine: It's been quite a while since your departure from The View was announced. Can you remind us why you're doing this? Because it really sucks.
Behar: I need a different kind of life. I have so many other things to do! I want to write, do standup, maybe do Broadway, do acting roles, and live my life without this daily regimen. I'm done! It's scary that 16 years have passed. How the hell did this happen? ...
The View is sending of original co-host Joy Behar in style.
At a taping of Behar's final special tribute show, to air Friday, Aug. 9 on ABC, the 70-year-old comedienne was surprised by a slew of famous friends — including Regis Philbin, Joan Rivers and former View-er Meredith Vieira —to reminisce about her 16-year run. Emceed by rumored replacement Mario Cantone, who would be the show's first full-time male panelist, the episode closes with a special performance by Tony Bennett.
Jenny McCarthy is officially joining The View and will make her debut on the daytime talk show in September, ABC announced Monday.
"We are delighted that Jenny will be joining us as a permanent co-host on The View starting in September," co-host Barbara Walters said in a statement.
