Three sources informed DailyMail.com that Alyssa will be joining Sara Haines, Whoopi Goldberg, Joy Behar, and Sunny Hostin for The View‘s 26th season, which begins in September.

After news broke about Alyssa‘s reported hiring, fans immediately became divided over the decision.

Yet the panel gave no nod to this, as Wednesday’s episode of the talk show played out as usual.

Viewers were baffled as to the radio silence over the new appointment, with one posting on Twitter: “Getting my last days in per when they make whatever announcement I’ll stop watching !!#TheView.”

Another bemused fan raged: “THEY SAID NOTHING!!! #TheView #PowerGrangers.”

A third put: “No mention of Alyssa Farah Griffin officially joining #TheView at the top of today’s show… all signs point to a mid-August announcement, despite yesterday’s reports.”

Many fans have since slammed the show over their choice of new conservative host, with some even threatening to boycott the program.

One blasted on social media: “I’ll be quitting #TheView permanently!”

“Every day now I am going to wake up in a RAGE,” another said about the news.

A third said Lindsey Granger would’ve been the better choice, writing: “This is underwhelming. 

“While L Granger is a lil off at times, she’s the better one to dialogue with the ladies.”

Other fans of the talk show were glad to see that Alyssa has reportedly been chosen as the new full-time co-host, though.

One excited viewer tweeted: “Happy to hear the good news!”

A second told her: “Congrats @Alyssafarah!”

A third said: “She is the moment!”

Fans had previously been speculating that the former communications director to ex-president Donald Trump might be joining the show full-time to take over the conservative seat from ex-panelist Meghan.

Griffin has since criticized Trump but she remains conservative.

She recently appeared on the show to talk about the Supreme Court overturning Roe v. Wade, the inflation crisis, and rise of gas prices.

Alyssa’s July appearance on the ABC program came after rumors about the search for a new permanent panelist kicked off.
