More shake-ups at The View may be on the horizon, according to a report by FOX411 which states that a source close to the show has revealed that Jenny McCarthy's contract may not get renewed.
Current host and former Playboy Playmate Jenny McCarthy has been a host on the ABC daytime round-table talk show for only one season, but according to Fox's source, ABC wasn't happy with the ratings after the addition of McCarthy to the panel, and is likely not going to renew her contract when it comes up in July.
ABC is prohibited from discussing on-going negotiations and talent contracts, but told FOX411 that, "Jenny has been a welcome addition to the show."
McCarthy joined The View last year as a replacement for conservative host Elisabeth Hasselbeck, who moved over to Fox News to co-host their day-time panel discussion program Fox & Friends.
According to the report, The View's rating have dipped in the last season and, while the show still has the highest ratings for its style of programming, ratings for the CBS show The Talk have been steadily increasing.
No official comment from ABC or McCarthy's representative about her contract renewal have yet been made.
