DirecTV Will Drop ABC If They Don’t Cancel “The View”

DirecTV's executive vice president Joe Barron believes that cancelling shows like "The View" is the best way to keep their most reliable customers, specifically the Baby Boomer generation. DirecTV aims to follow in Fox News' footsteps to maintain its audience base and compensate for the rise of streaming services. Meanwhile, ABC has no plans to cancel its number-one rated daytime show. Instead, it plans to "help the slow death of DirecTV’s archaic platform go the way of the dodo." ABC also needs to compensate Roseanne for "The Connors" and hire Gina Carano as an on-the-field commentator.
