  • No Room With A (or The) View

    I used to love The View and watched every day. If I couldn't be home, it was recorded. When they hired Rosie O the first time, I recorded the show daily but would fast forward thru anything she was ranting about. I was sooo glad when they got rid of her. I thought at first they had made a mistake with Whoopie, but I found her entertaining and knowledgeable about things. I did annoyed when she introduced EVERYONE as fabulous. Com'on Whoopie, you know not everyone is fabulous!

    But now, I DO NOT LIKE the new version. The set is way to bright, like they are sitting in a light box. Rosie O is still the big mouth flaming liberal she always was... still blames Bush... still hates Sarah making fun of (bullying) Donald Trump. Rosie P is trying sooo hard to fit, I feel really sorry for her, she other wise seems like a sweet lady. The one lonely conservative on there ... I can't even remember her name ... seems at times she is afraid to jump in the conversation.

    I wish they would have a more balanced show, how about 2 liberals and 2 conservatives, so that maybe, just maybe the Viewer could actually see some "views", not just extreme left-wing BS. Sarah Palin, for one would be an EXCELLENT choice and Megan McCain would also be an EXCELLENT choice.

    But for now, I am saying Goodbye to The View.moreless
  • for give it a chance and all you like its

    Look I have watched the View over the years and yes although at times they were annoying with different hosts they were still respectable. The only thing I have seen on this is the first chance they get is to blame Bush for Obamas problems and refuse to complain about the exact same things that obama is now doing that Bush did, if not worse, and will never admit his faults. They are more involved about what sarah Palin or Mitt Romney did: get over it that was six and two years ago. For crying out loud they use to talk about substansive items but now lets keep hush hush. That is why the Talk is better. They understand their limits and do just discuss mundane things and not items that they really do not have the experience because it is not their forte. RO AND RO are not honest or relevant. And rosie O'donnell needs to grow up to complain about Trump about him being a bully when she has been the biggest bully; this show is circling the toilet. Wallace I thought I was going to like her but she is horrible for suppose to be the voice of reason. If you want a really good show to watch try outnumbered on Fox news channel at 12 they are extremely interesting raising up on many subjects and talk honestly and intelligently. I go to them for world events and the Talk for Hollywood and lighthearted items it is a great mix. And yes on Fox program they have independents and liberals on the show Kristin Powers is a regular and although I think she is wrong, on this show she expresses her opinions and have started to become a fan of hers.moreless

    Have watched show since 1997 inception. There have been some bumpy seasons, especially the last 3 - 4 years when I tuned out and in. The new 2014 season? Although the jury's still out? Look as if it may be Dead On arrival. I have watched everyday since the restructuring, new co-hosting cast, new set etc. Zzzzz. I appreciate Rosie O'Donnell I truly do? Yet that old saying "sometimes it's not good always good to go back In this instance is so very true! The new set? TOO BRIGHT! It's Like a Tinker Tonker Toy romper room preschool set! Too busy! True the audience is seen better, yet that's not the point of this show! Where the heck is the table by the way? Whoopi Goldberg is the only saving grace currently and excellent as "LEAD" Host as long as Rosie O'D allows her to do the job without incessant interference and competitive subliminal attention grabbing antic attempts. It's so apparent she feels she needs to be in the driver's seat and she doesn't. I love her, and I get her? Just NOT on The View. Rosie O'D appears to be desperately seeking attention by trying too hard to be controversial currently. It's not working. Her persona is coming off as annoying, boring, slightly egotistical, and restless like a cagey panther whom hasn't a clue. It's The View and not Rosie O'Donnell's View. Chill out Rosie. Freeze on The Frozen okay? Be a team player and just say what's on your mind and in your heart. I was hoping The View would have really shaken things up and added some male co host to the banter if they were looking to do something they haven't already done and be ahead of the pack. For example someone such as CNN'S Don Lemon could have easily hit a home run. Hey? I mean He's easy on the eye, not to mention a seasoned professional commentator, journalist, intelligent, with a controversial edge, and a Gay Black male, the whole enchilada raped up in one package! He'd have been my pick over Rosie O'Donnell. i'm liking the chatter over at the table where they're doing all "The Talk" these days. I suggest bring back Bill Getty, get rid of the romper set, bring back on the serious banter, and full celebrity interactions with the couch, and the table! Rotate some of those co host (some men with a point of view too) Like a Don lemon [HINT!!! Hint! $] while you're at, and Rosie O'Donnell start a daytime TV show for kids (not an insult) you'd be great at it! By the way? I'm not a Don lemon stalker? I have just seen him on varied talk shows from Wendy to The View and they've been just really great shows with all the fun, candor, and mix up of great conversations.moreless
  • The closed minded opinion of the view

    I used to watch this show all the time but have stopped when it became nothing but liberals sitting there bashing anyone with a different view. Funny thing I used to be a huge whoopi more yuck can't stand her and her nasty comments. I loved Rosie also well until she was stupid with Tom selleck and now she is nothing but a stupid loud mouth liberal the things that comes out of her mouth is insanely dumb. I hope this show is removed from the tv even hate seeing stupid clips on Facebook, I try not to watch but just glancing at the pictures irritate me. I am a very open minded person I don't chose my friends by what they believe in politically or even judge people by their religious beliefs or sexual preference but these people on this show do nothing except judge people (if your a damn democrat they won't. Say crap about you) I thought the whole Sarah palin convo was nothing but bullshit why don't you pick on some other people Sarah had more class than any of you ever will!moreless
