The View just can’t seem to recapture its old magic. A full season with Whoopi Goldberg, Rosie O’Donnell, Nicolle Wallace and Rosie Perez hasn’t even wrapped, and one co-host is reportedly already a goner. Meanwhile, new reports suggest ABC might cancel the talk show to extend its Good Morning America brand.

According to Variety, Perez won’t be coming back from her month away to star in the Broadway play Fish in the Dark. ABC is denying the industry bible's report.

On of the heels of the Perez story, comes a report from The Daily Mailclaiming ABC News is considering cancelling the show to extend Good Morning America.

Now under the umbrella of ABC News, the network is considering the possibility of ending the show and replacing it with an extended version of 'Good Morning America.'

'The brass at ABC feels like they've tried to do everything possible to breathe new life into this show,' said the insider. They moved it from ABC Entertainment Daytime to the ABC News division, that was having so much success with Good Morning America.

But in spite of the changes, nothing seems to be helping the sluggish ratings for the show.

'They're ready to abandon ship at this point,' the source told Daily Mail Online.
