Joy Behar took a fall on Thursday’s edition of ABC’s “The View” as the obnoxious host faceplanted in front of a live audience, throwing a scare into the masked crowd as her co-hosts rushed to attend to her.

While the intro music was still playing and the fans where cheering the on-set arrival of the quartet of shrieking leftist harpies, Behar lost her balance while attempting to sit in her chair and went down like a ton of bricks, briefly thrashing about on the floor until her fellow co-hosts were able to pull her up.

Fortunately, the 79-year-old New Yorker wasn’t hurt and the show resumed after she regained her composure as co-host Whoopi Goldberg exclaimed “These chairs move,” twirling one of the seats, “you touch it and you’re on the ground.”

“It’s happened to all of us at one time or another,” said co-host Sunny Hostin as Behar said that it in 25 years, that this is the first time that she has fallen on her rear end in front of a live audience.

Behar joked, “Who do I sue? Who do I sue?” as a set technician made sure that she was able to get seated without falling again and the audience cheered as she beamed into the camera.

“I went flying,” she said as Whoopi joked, “We can’t even say you know, you can’t have another glass of wine, it takes a glass of wine to get in the chair.”

The ringleader of the liberal snakepit assured her fellow co-hosts that she was ok. “I just missed the step,” Behar said, “as usual,” as the earlier distress was replaced by levity.

As could be expected, Behar’s tumble generated a lot of buzz on Twitter with some users seeming to take more than a bit of delight over the incident.

One wiseacre tweeted, “Joy Behar falls ass over tin cup, lol. Obviously, somebody switched one of the special fat-a** chairs used by Joy and Whoopi. And Joy tried to sit in a chair meant for the nicely sized Sara or Sunny.”

Another wrote, “Joy Behar finally took the trip we’ve been waiting for,” a jab about Behar’s recent whining that the Ukraine-Russia crisis was going to spoil her upcoming vacation in Italy.

Others weighed in on Behar’s on-air tumble.


Later in the show, Behar struck a more serious note by bringing up beloved comic/actor Bob Saget who passed away after he went to bed following a head injury.

“Well, you know, I fall a lot. The main thing, just to talk seriously, when Bob Saget fell, he died. If you hit your head and you feel dizzy or you have blurred vision or you feel like you want to go to sleep, go to the doctor because that will kill you,” Behar said. “But I’ve fallen a lot. I fall all the time. I’m a klutz! But this chair, this chair was like the exorcist. It was spring!”
