Sheryl Underwood

Sherri Shepherd KNEW ...

She Was About to Get Canned

7/6/2014 12:15 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

070314_sheryl_underwood_launch_v2All comedians know when they're bombing, and when they're gonna get the hook ... and that's exactly how Sherri Shepherd felt at "The View" -- at least that's what her pal Sheryl Underwood TRIED to tell us. 

As TMZ first reported, Sherri and Jenny McCarthy were sent packing from the daytime talker last week ... and the show is now looking for a Latina and a strong conservative female as replacements.

Sheryl -- who's got her own gig going at "The Talk" -- started to explain why Sherri's background as a standup comic helped prepare her for the the blood-letting at ABC ... and then thought twice of making the comment.

You gotta see her try to back out -- funny stuff ... though she eventually saves it with a Jay Z lyric.

Shepherd became a disaster on The View. It can only get better with her gone.

Sherri knew she was going to be fired all she needed to do was to read The View Facebook Page. People just didn't like Sherri and began to hate her. She was not funny for being a comic. She thought she could dance but can't. She thought she knew everything but her head is empty and knows nothing about anything. She only knew to talk about Jeffrey unknown if she was telling the truth about or if stories were made up. I know that I am a happy fan of The View and very glad that she is out. Sorry for Jenny I liked her.
