    I have watched The View for many years, but may stop this September. The addition of Raven and Michelle have been more than disappointing. Nicole and Rosie were smart and entertaining co-hosts; Raven and Michelle are quite the opposite. I believe if you keep these women, the show will soon be off the air. Keep Woopi, of course, Nicole and Rosie, add Joy Behar, and the show might continue
  • Please get your history right

    I don't normally watch your show and after this morning I probably won't again. I want to believe that you are well educated women, but after this morning I question that. There was a statement made about the civil war that really shocked me. The statement was that the Civil War was started over slavery. Well here is the surprise it wasn't. It was over money and goods. Freeing the slaves didn't come into play until after the north had lost several battles. The north was losing funding and momentum for the war so it was at that point they decided to free the slaves. I was taught this by an American that was born with naturally dark skin. He hated the term African American. In his mind that term causes more division between people. I didn't learn history from a regular class book but from his love for history and he taught what he believed was true. I feel honored being taught by him.moreless

    I will be SO glad when this show is out of reruns. I am anxious to see the lineup. It has to be improved without Nicolle and Rosie.

    Nicole was the only intelligent one there but mostly I refuse to watch with raven on there. She is cartoon character with no intelligence. Joy can't even help this show.
