Mitt Romney canceled his appearance on "The View" set for October 18 due to scheduling problems, but his wife Ann Romney will still appear.
"The View" co-host Barbara Walters said on Monday that over the weekend Romney's people said he had scheduling problems and would not come to the show nor did they think he would reschedule at this point.

"We are sorry that we won't have Governor Romney. He can change his mind, and we hope he does. It would be our pleasure to have him in the program," Walters said on yesterday's show.
"The View" hosts recently had President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle on the show and Walters said they invited Mitt and Ann Romney as well amid complains that the show favors the Obamas.
In the past Romney has said that the hosts in "The View" are "sharp-tongued."
"'The View' is fine, although 'The View' is high-risk because, of the five women on it, only one is conservative and four are sharp-tongued and not conservative, Whoopi Goldberg in particular," the Republican Presidential Candidate said at a fundraising event.
"Although last time I was on the show, she said to me, 'You know what? I think I could vote for you.' And I said, 'I must've done something really wrong.'"
Romney and President Barack Obama will face off Tuesday night at the second presidential debate (Town Meeting) in Hofstra University, Hempstead, New York.
The debate will start at 9 p.m. EST and will be broadcast on the major networks.
