Today marked The View's first day back after the cast shakeup. The latest version of the panel includes Whoopi, Good Morning America Weekend anchor Paula Faris, Michelle Collins, Raven-Symone and Joy Behar, who returned after leaving two years ago.
The audience was clearly excited to have Joy back. They gave an uproarious applause when Whoopi announced her at the dais, and Whoopi echoed their sentiments.
"She's back and thank God, because I at least know somebody in the cast," Whoopi said.
"I was doing a standup show with her and I was complaining about it, of course, because that's my thing," Behar said. "And she goes, 'Joy, do it well. They still want you.' So that's why I'm on The View now."
