Monday’s and Tuesday’s editions of The View once again found a somewhat different panel for viewers to enjoy. The daytime TV show has seen some overhaul since the start of the COVID-19, or Coronavirus, pandemic that has swept the world, and this week was no exception.

Host Meghan McCain announced over the weekend that she was expecting a little bundle of joy sometime later in the year, but that she would continue her work on the show, despite her pregnancy.

While McCain was clear that she wasn’t quitting the show, when she announced her pregnancy on Instagram, Monday and Tuesday saw no signs of the co-host, beyond on-air congratulations from her fellow hosts.

The hosts congratulated McCain on Monday, the first working day since her announcement, but didn’t address when she would be on the show once again. Tuesday, moderator Whoopi Goldberg said the Republican pundit would likely come back “sometime this week” but didn’t give an exact date to viewers.

Fans Left Mistified

Fans of the show are currently enjoying the commentary stylings of Goldberg, who has been broadcasting from her home, as well as Sunny Hostin and Sara Haines, who are risking the viral infection to be in studio. Joy Behar was also in on Monday, but out on Tuesday.

For now, fans will have to do without the perspective of the conservative co-host. Goldberg has been moderating from home, while Hostin and Sara Haines hold down the fort in the studio. Joy Behar returned part of the show, remotely, Monday but was missing again on Tuesday’s episode.

McCain, announced on Sunday that she and husband Ben Domenech, were expected their first child. McCain, 35, has been clear in the past about her struggles with fertility and their desire to be parents. However, the announcement coming over Instagram was a surprise to many.

“My husband Ben and I have been blessed to find out I’m pregnant,” McCain said in her post. “Although this isn’t how I expected to announce my pregnancy, both we and our families are excited to share the news with you all.”

“I consulted with my doctors and they advised me that for the safety of our baby and myself, I should be extra vigilant about limiting the amount of people we come in contact with. Starting immediately, I’ll be joining the millions of Americans who are self-isolating as a precaution to prevent the spread of COVID-19. As a result, I will be appearing on ‘The View’ from home via satellite,” the ABC host went on.

McCain also thanked those who work at her network for allowing her to stay out of harm’s way during this crucial time.

“I’m fortunate that my employer, ABC, has allowed me and my co-hosts to work remotely. I am indebted to our producers and crew,” the new mom went on. “I also want to acknowledge the heroes – the doctors, nurses, grocery and pharmacy workers, journalists, police officers, firemen and military – who are on the front lines of this fight.”

“Please stay safe. Wash your hands and avoid public gatherings and I will continue to see you each morning on ‘The View,’” McCain said finally.
