"When I originally came on, I was elated. It was Barbara Walters' last year, I was her last hire. I studied with her and watched her every move and I was brought on to change the views perspective and make it lighter and more pop culture fun," Jenny told Access Hollywood in a new interview. "It was very polarizing, the audience thought, and very political. And it kind of drove people away."
With "The View's" ratings down, Jenny said the show is returning to a more conflict-based format, bringing on strong personalities like Rosie O'Donnell.
