  • The Snooze

    1.0
    I will start out with Whoopi who looks as if " Why did I decide to stay"! Rosie Perez who can't complete a sentence without saying um after every other word and then it still doesn't make sense after she's finished. Nicole Wallace is such a fish out of water. Rosie O'Donnell stop trying so hard to be the bully!

    I am all about diversity but this is the most mismatched panal ever! Please someone throw Whoopi a life preserver she's on a sinking ship!moreless

    I was sad when I watched The View. I taped the show daily and watched it the next day before work. The set is sterile, and the hosts do not have chemistry. I'm not sure that is something that they can develop. It just didn't work. The balance is wrong. Rosie O'Donnell is overpowering. And I like her. But she wants to take over. I agree with someone who said Whoopi was phoning it in. Rose Perez needs to find her voice. She seemed shy and unsure of herself. The show has lost what made is special. And Rosie, you should not have been on with bare feet. You knew that would bring in some negativity, and on the first show - it was a bad move.moreless

  • 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
