Joy Behar moves to primetime

'View' co-host starting new cable show

"The View" co-host Joy Behar will be adding a daily primetime show to her workload.

Beginning this fall, the comedian will host "The Joy Behar Show" on HLN (formerly Headline News). The one-hour talk show will air at 9 p.m., seven days a week as part of the network's primetime slate of opinion-based programming.

Behar will continue to serve as a co-host of "The View" on ABC.

"The Joy Behar Show" will showcase Behar's personal take on the day's news and her no-nonsense approach to current events.

"Joy's sense of humor and her bold interview style make her one of the best talk-show hosts in the business," said CNN Worldwide exec vp Ken Jautz.

Added Behar: "I just can't seem to keep my mouth shut, so another hour of conversations with interesting, outspoken people about the stories making news is right up my alley."
