Barbara Walters' Goodbye A Ratings Winner
The much admired and respected veteran journalist Barbara Walters' huge sendoff was a ratings boost for ABC's "The View" with 5.2 million viewers tuning in. Walters' tearful and heartfelt goodbye, which aired on Friday, was the show's biggest audience since 2009. Later that evening 9.5 million viewers tuned in for ABC's two-hour retrospective on Walters' career. Somehow we think (and hope) we haven't seen the last of Barbara Walters.
