    I think there isn't a clear consensus as to whether this newest incarnation of the show is a definite hit or miss, I for one am glad that THE VIEW has been able to continue its overall successful run in some form (especially in view of its history of winning Emmy Awards): My mom enjoys watching the show; and, in part due to the great upheaval in ABC daytime programming, I think it would be sad for the show to be history.moreless
  • The View has lost its way

    Ok... way back when.... Do you remember the whole idea that made The View great: It was a show "featuring a team of five dynamic women of different ages, experiences and backgrounds discussing the most exciting events of the day. The show consists of the five co-anchors debating topics in the news and are joined by the best experts... Yes, that was success!

    Now, we have 5 lackluster over-appeasing women who talk about their kids, nights out, clothes, personal issues... and think that by constantly posting their own pics on the show, we will be forever grateful. Why is this group deathly afraid to DEBATE the REAL news of our times? And where are the "Experts?" All we see interviewed are brief celebs who wrote a book and talk for 1 minute (all of whom are "very dear dear" friends of one Rosie or the other- or, so it seems). Hmmm... That's a lot of "very dear dear The point: There is no real news. The banter - much to do with the hosts themselves, does not connect with the viewers. The show is losing credibility. Wallace can debate. Isn't that why you brought her on? Is she the only smart one now? But sadly turning into an appeaser too? C'mon ladies. Bring it or you are going to lose it. PS. Rosie Perez, we all know you are a proud Latina, ease up por favor. Would you like hearing Wallace say she is a proud caucasian 10 times a show? We get it. We really do.moreless
  • Rosie Perez needs to go

    Whopie is still fine. Although I didn't know who Nicole was I do like her. She seems intelligent and I love how Rosie O is definitely intimidated by her and Whoopie. I hated Rosie O the first time around but she seems to not be forcing her views on everyone as much this time. As for Rosie Perez, she is awful. When she talks it sounds so stupid, it's not interesting at all, and she goes on and on and on. If I hear one more time "being a Latino" I'm changing the channel. I know Sherry wasn't the brightest but she brought funny to the show. They let her go and took RP? R u kidding me?? Get rid of RPmoreless
  • Horrible!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1

    I loved the view for years. Elizabeth was intelligent and she and Joy had differing views but at least it was interesting. Any of the hosts were better than now. The fat lesbian who is obnoxious to listen to, the idiot Latino that can't speak properly, Nicole, who I never even heard of and has no input. Whoopie has become annoying and all she talks about is her poop and What were they thinking putting this group together! Poor Barbara must be mortified. I don't watch anymore and prefer watching The Talk. They are good looking and a shame.moreless
