  • Not much of a "view'

    1.0
    This new View just doesn't "got it"! Too subdued, too "careful", toooo boring! here's the audience? They're sooo quiet! I've been giving it a good try all week hoping they would pick up the pace. I've been watching and recording the View since day one. VERY RARELY EVER missed a show. Just deleted it from my DVR series list :( . Not trying to be mean, I LOVE Whoopie. The show has completely lost its fun and pizzazz! Good Bye View, Hello "The Talk"moreless
  • Get rid of Rosie Perez

    1.0
    Rosie Perez has added nothing to the show. Never smiles, no personality and does not mesh with the hosts. Her voice is so annoying I can hardly watch her. Her comments do not add to the integrity of the show and the comradere of the hosts. Please replace her so I can continue to watch this show
  • surgical lobotomy

    1.0
    First what is with the sterile environment. I feel like they should be doing some type of surgery or the show is in a padded room trying not to be killed in a Final Destination movie.



    The set is horrible not like the old set and the hosts are horrible. Rosie O'Donnell, being a bitch should be sent to Isis then they would surrender, is being herself acknowledges her oldest son but doesn't tell you that he serves in the military the very org that she hates. Hmmm why can't she be honest. Typical ungrateful bitch and yes they need to bring the big table back so we don't have to see those nasty feet of hers. Heck might be better to hide her face put a bag over it or a veil although it still won't take away her annoying voice.



    Another annoying person is Rosie Perez. OMG I just want to claw my brain out hearing that annoying voice. GO back to whatever hole you crawled out of. Between both Rosies I want to have a lobotomy.



    Wallace eh whatever. Not that interested and don't know who she really was until she came on here.



    Whoopie is okay as usual but please grow a pair and return back to your old setup. That worked. This is just a cold show. Just a bunch of cackling annoying hosts that really do not have the credentials, except maybe Wallace, to be able to comment on anything. Find something else to fill the view during that hour. Here is a suggestion leave it on the emergency broadcast system with the constant ring. I think that would be less annoying than this show.

  • The New View-Pee Ewww....

    1.0
    My 3 year old was in the room when the first show of the "new view' came on and she said "eww yucky mom". was true.



    Even the table was gone! They used to have that nice table they sat at.. now they sit uncomfortably on chairs with no table, with Whoopi's hair made up like a cheerleader on fox network? What were these people thinking? It felt lacking humor and spunk. It felt stiff and fake.



    They stripped the show of all comfort-ability. Basically why in the world would they let Sherri Shepard go is beyond me. She made that show and brought so much humor and love. Whoopi has always been great too but why strip it of Sherri? Even just keeping her would have saved the transition.



    I am now boycotting it because it is horrible now. And why Whoopi agreed to that "make over" with the up-do is beyond me. It was creepy to see her with Sarah Palins hair. Why did she sell out? probably tricked into it somehow- but wow- what a wrong turn!



    Good lord. Need I even mention Rosie? No, it would be pointless.moreless
