ABC is searching for a replacement for Rosie O'Donnell, who left the show in May, and whose boisterous and controversial presence resurrected ratings for the 10-year-old talk show. Sources said an announcement on both signings could come as soon as next week.

ABC is looking to fill two chairs on The View after the departure of O'Donnell and the spot once held by Star Jones Reynolds, who was fired from the show in 2006.
