In a move that has stunned the world of television, Elon Musk, CEO of Tesla and SpaceX, has acquired ABC and promptly fired the entire cast of the long-running talk show, “The View.”
Sources close to Musk say that he was “fed up” with the show’s constant negativity and lack of innovation, and decided to take matters into his own hands.
“I’ve been watching ‘The View’ for years and it just seems like the same tired arguments over and over again,” Musk said in a statement. “I’m tired of it and I’m tired of the lack of progress in the world of daytime talk shows.”
The firing of the cast, which includes Whoopi Goldberg, Joy Behar, and Meghan McCain, has been met with both shock and applause from fans and critics alike.
“I’m thrilled that Elon Musk is shaking things up,” said one fan. “It’s about time someone came in and breathed new life into the world of talk shows.”
