  • Stupidity rules!

    Too many empty headed liberals pushing their agenda. I had to totally quit watching as it angers me to no end to hear these babbling idiots put down conservative ideals. Our country was not founded on stupidity!
  • Boring Show

    Maybe at one time this show was good/interesting? I find it so boring. The Talk is better. Maybe because its lighter and not so grueling.
  • Rosie Perez is so annoying! Nicole disappoints.

    Come be fair ABC. If you're going to have a Republican on the show, at least have someone who has enough guts to stand up for her oown party!

    Rosie Perez is nauseating ... I thinks she's a know-it-All who kisses Whoopie's butt! I used to love Whoopie but she's starting to get on my nerves. I definitely am NOT going to watch this show again. So tired of the biases.moreless
  • The other obnoxious Rosie has to go, too!

    Used to watch The View every day when Elizabeth Hasselbeck and Sherry Shepherd were on the show. Loved them both, as well as (especially) Whoopie. Watched only rarely after Sherry was canned, and could not abide the obnoxious Brooklynese accents of Rosie O'Donnell and Rosie Perez. The only one of the new moderators I like at all is Whoopie. The others bore me. But I can't put myself thru the irritating presence of Perez. I watched today to see Derek Hough and Nastia Liukin, whom Perez referred to as "Nastasia" then patted herself on the back for getting her name correct. At least two more times she incorrectly referred to her as "Nastasia". Let Broadway HAVE this obnoxious peson; she's got to be the next to go -- if "The View" even lasts that long.
