Meghan McCain Proudly Shares 'The View' Is Beating 'The Ellen DeGeneres Show' in Ratings
Meghan McCain took to Instagram to share the good news about the skyrocketing success of "The View" and talked about the inspirational rise to the top showing how strong women can be.
ABC's daytime talk show, "The View," first came into the network's list of staples since it launched in 1997. With Joy Behar, Whoopi Goldberg, Sunny Hostin, and McCain handling the show consistently in the past few years, it gained a lot of momentum. Meghan took to Instagram to celebrate, writing:
"So proud of this entire team and especially my co-hosts... Now we're beating Ellen in the ratings."
The TV personality added that when she first joined the show at the request of her father, many people had told her she was committing career suicide. She said that she didn't listen to them and a few years down the line, the show was "killing it."
McCain lost the man who had pushed her into working on "The View."
Since joining the show, Meghan quickly proved herself to be one of the most controversial co-hosts, often giving her own opinion regardless of who it rubbed on wrongly. She had even been in occasional fights, with a fellow panellist and viewers calling for her firing.
The Phoenix-born co-host revealed that she had been warned that "The View" had a habit of wearing down conservative hosts. Rather than be fazed, she forged on and took the job either way. McCain wrote:
"...more than a few people told me...I wouldn't last a full season."
The Republican co-host also noted "The View's" lack of hesitation to touch on all the tough and hot topics, especially in politics, that most might want to avoid.
In August 2018, McCain lost her father, Sen. John McCain, the man who had pushed her into working on "The View," and ultimately, to greatness.
The Senator died due to a gruelling battle with brain cancer, and Meghan struggled with her grief for a long time, coupled with the pressures of being a co-host of one of the most talked-about shows in the country.
