First Look at Jenny McCarthy With 'View' Crew: Who's Replacing Elisabeth Hasselbeck? (Photos)

Following Joy Behar's star-studded goodbye, ABC has released the first images of her replacement, Jenny McCarthy, with the remaining "The View" co-hosts Barbara Walters, Whoopi Goldberg and Sherri Shepherd.

But, what are they going to do about Elisabeth Hasselbeck's seat in the fall?

An ABC representative told TheWrap that the network hasn't made a decision on the conservative former co-host's replacement yet. The show will use rotating guest hosts for her seat when it returns in the fall.

After both she and host Barbara Walters said reports of Hasselbeck's exit were false, she shot her last episode of "The View" on July 10 after a decade on the daytime talker.

She called her time on the show "nothing short of extraordinary." 

At the time, there were reports that McCarthy, Sarah Palin and Brooke Shields were in the running to replace the "Survivor" alum.

McCarthy's addition was announced on July 15. Confusing at first, ABC said the comedienne would be replacing Behar and not Hasselbeck.

Hasselbeck has joined Fox News' morning show, "Fox & Friends," replacing Gretchen Carlson, who is moving on to her own show in daytime in the fall.

Walters, who co-created and executive produces "The View," is planning to retire in Summer 2014.
