  • Who picks "Hot Topics"

    I can't believe some one picks the ridicules subject matter to discuss and calls it Hot Topics. Do the producers just think the viewers are stupid??? Stuck in the friend Zone???? What. ???? Who can watch this crap?
  • Going Going Gone!!!!!!!!!!

    This show is no long on my schedule. You get worse instead of better.

    Your choice of Raven (Awful) I will no longer watch this show. The talk has

    taken your place.

    Sorry - Either keep Whoopie and get rid of the rest of them or cancel the show.

    Tell them to quit overriding each other. They talk over each other and can't understand a work they are saying.
  • Rosie Perez is an idiot

    I am a teacher so I normally record The View and watch it in "real time" during the summer". However, Rosie Perez and her uninformed, beside the point comments are ruining this program. There is not a shortage of intelligent women to serve as co-host for this program. Please find one. I don't think I can continue wasting my time with The View if she insists on screaming her idiotic comments.moreless
  • Hot Topics Not So Hot or the Hosts

    I looked forward to this show for years, but I have stopped recording it. I try to watch occasionally but cannot stomach the routine of talking at the same time, Nicole talking loudly (she has improved) and the guest host being ignored. Rosie P is obviously unhappy and Whoopi has become over-bearing, hostile or boring. I came here to see if others felt the same. They lost another devoted viewer here.moreless
  • The View is a Hot Mess

    Things have gone from bad to worse for The View. The entire panel of hosts should be replaced, or the show should be cancelled.
