1. Meghan McCain exits The View

After four seasons and countless hairstyles (which her hairstylist swore weren't intentional sabotage), Meghan McCain is leaving The View. She announced Thursday she wanted to remain in Washington, D.C., where she moved during the pandemic, rather than return to the studio in New York City. "I just have this really wonderful life here that, ultimately, I felt like I didn't want to leave," McCain said. Co-host Whoopi Goldberg told McCain it was "quite wonderful to sit across from" her. Unfortunately for viewers, McCain's exit signals the end of the iconic McCain-Goldberg moments, including Whoopi's viral "Okay," and when McCain learned about commercial breaks. Don't cry because it's over, smile because it happened.
