ABC's struggling gabfest The View has hired a new boss.
Brian Teta, who worked as a Producer for the “Late Show with David Letterman” has been hired as the new co-executive producer.
The show which has basically become nothing more than a train-wreck of late is headed into its 19th season.
Here is the memo sent to the staff, announcing Teta's hire:
Team-We are excited to welcome Brian Teta to The View as Co-Executive Producer. Brian joins us after 11 years at Late Show with David Letterman, where he was Supervising Producer. He worked on virtually every element of the show (their final season was just nominated for an Emmy). He produced celebrity guests, cooking segments, variety acts and outdoor stunts, and he booked political guests and sports stars after events ranging from the Super Bowl to the Olympics. Brian also has extensive daytime TV experience, having spent several years producing for Ricki Lake, The Montel Williams Show and Judge Hatchett. As we ramp up for Season 19, we are delighted to add Brian’s production smarts, booking skills and terrific television experience to the team.’
