  • What happened??

    This show is so uncomfortable to watch now! The voices of Rosie Perez , and Jane Wallace are so annoying, and hard to listen to! There doesn't seem to be any connection between these ladies.

    Whoopy is the star. Make it the Whoopy Goldberg show and I may watch again!
  • Nicolle's obnoxious voice and laugh

    I retired 7 years ago, and I have DVR'd The View and watched it most every weekday. I am very disappointed in this year's cast. Nicolle Wallace is obnoxious with her voice and her laugh, and she constantly interrupts. She often talks about her child. On one of the shows she talked about a woman who told her to quiet her son down while they were on a fight, and Nicolle referred to the woman as a cow, and she called the woman a bitch. She also said that she felt like punching the woman in the face. All this tells us what kind of a person Nicolle Wallace is. She is supposedly a Republican, yet she often sides with the liberals on the show. Maybe that is why she was hired. While watching Must Have Mondays last week, Nicolle constantly interrupted the host presenting the items. She has a high pitched strident obnoxious voice. Whoopi is always playing the race card. She so often talks about race issues, yet she so makes an issue and jokes about her race. She is so narrow minded about so many things and refuses to listen to the other side of an issue. Rosie Perez constantly mentions her Latino heritage and seems obsessed with it.

    The cast was very anti police when they had discussions about Michael Brown. Without hearing the facts and evidence they thought the officer was in the wrong. Also, when The View had reruns during the Christmas season, they played the rerun of the show with the discussion about Michael Brown. Why would they play that rerun again. Maybe to incite the public. There were many other reruns to play. While the cast discussed the case, they thought it was so wonderful that some of the Rams players went out on the field with their hands up, when in fact the Rams had not heard all the evidence, and it was found out from honest witnesses and other evidence that Brown never did raise his hands to surrender. The View should have shown facts of the case, instead of discussing what the media was reporting.

    Rosie O is now off, thank goodness. I was sick of hearing her obsession with "Frozen" and her constant talking about her children. Now the View has guest hosts who are not very impressive. What is to come of this show? OMG today there was SO much giggling. Cristela Alonzo ridiculously laughed obnoxiously as she usually does. How about making the cast equal politically...2 Republicans / Conservatives, and 2 Democrat / liberals? That is probably not going to happen on such a liberal show and station.moreless
  • let's least give thanks that Bab's is gone

    I just can't anymore. I miss Rosie O'Donnell. The rest of the hosts bore me to tears. Whoopie is so irrelevant, Rosie Perez so annoying & Nicole Wallace is uncomfortable to watch. The only thing I am grateful for is that we don't have to listen to Barbara Walters anymore. She was just so out of touch.
  • The show is disgusting.

    I think it is pretty bad when a TV show is constantly on the race card, helping to incite discontent in the country and is totally leaning to liberal views at the same time. Rosie Perez is a hater of all things non latino. At least Barbara Walters held it half way under control. It is pretty bad when a show tries to tear the country back into the old ways of white this, black that, and latino again. The last 6 or 7 years are pushing for a division of America into racial sections.moreless
  • Can't watch anymore

    The show sounds like a Rosie Perez's and Nicole Wallace's laugh and voice, it's too much to bear. Quite honestly, I was and still am a fan of Rosie but as an actress, not on a talk show. I really can't even bear to watch the show anymore, no matter what the topic is. And please explain why Whoopi's shoes must be featured. I'm sorry, but big feet with socks and really awful shoes don't need to be highlighted. I guess it's what the audiencemoreless
