Candace Cameron Bure, best known for playing D.J. Tanner on "Full House," was present for only half of Tuesday's season premiere of "The View," prompting critics to ask if she was silenced for being a conservative.

According to Variety, the 19th season kicked off with Whoopi Goldberg, Joy Behar, "GMA Weekend" anchor Paula Faris, comedian Michelle Collins, ex-Disney star Raven Symone and Cameron Bure helming the new Hot Topics table.

Cameron Bure wasn't introduced, however, until 30 minutes into the show — after the group had discussed Kim Davis, the Kentucky clerk recently jailed for refusing to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples.

Fans expected to see a conservative like Cameron Bure on to balance the debate, however she was nowhere to be found. In the past, for example, she's clashed with Raven Symone over the rights of same-sex couples.

She appeared later in the show, however, explaining that the cast of "Fuller House" — the forthcoming "Full House" reboot from Netflix — "is wrapping our 13th episode in November, so after [that], I will be here more consistently."

"I’m happy when I will be here, I’ll miss you all desperately because this is like new friendships, this is new fun for me, and I’m happy to be a part of this team," she added.

After the show, which included Sen. Elizabeth Warren and "Sleeping With Other People" stars Jason Sudeikis and Alison Brie, a representative for "The View" confirmed Cameron Bure's scheduling conflict.

"We had her on for 'segment three' because she’s not going to be on [regularly] for a couple of weeks. We want to build consistency to let viewers know who would be on for tomorrow," the rep told the New York Post's Page Six.

Cameron Bure is believed to be filling the token conservative slot previously occupied by Elisabeth Hasselbeck, who now co-anchors a show on Fox News, though the show rep also denied that.

“She wasn’t hired as the resident conservative. That diminishes her role on the show."
