Whoopi Goldberg is apparently the sole survivor on "The View."

Network sources told TMZ that Goldberg will be the only view kept on the talk show. Sherri Shepherd and Jenny McCarthy have both been fired, the sources said, along with executive producer Bill Geddie. The decision reportedly was made late Thursday.

Barbara Walters retired from on-camera duties in May.

According to People, a source said Shepherd could not reach agreement with ABC on a new deal and McCarthy was being let go because the show "is moving in a new direction creatively."

Really? Does that mean we can expect a man's view in the near future?

Both women confirmed their departures late Thursday on Twitter.

"The number 7 is God's number of completion & after 7 seasons my time at The View is now complete! So grateful 2 every1 4 their love & support," Shepherd wrote, adding, "Incredibly grateful to my second mom Barbara Walters for pushing me beyond my comfort zone -- it's been amazing doing it scared! #joy"

McCarthy wrote that she would be following Shepherd out. "My View will be changing too. As will with many hard working folks. Thanks to everyone at the show for your dedication and an amazing year."

What a love fest!

Speculation is already flying about who will replace the pair. Included in the rumors: Rosie O'Donnell, who has already taken a spin on the show; Laila Ali; Ross Mathews; and Jesse Palmer. If the latter two are serious contenders, then the show really isn't just paying lip service to talk of a "new direction."
