  • show needs total remake or needs to be cancelled

    I used to watch the show every day. I try to watch occasionally, but find myself changing the channel quickly. I like Whoopi but Rosie and Nicole need to find another job more suited to their personalities. There voices are not suited for a talk show format. They are very irritating to listen too. They are probably very nice people and are talented, but they are the reason I do not watch the show any more. Ratings for the Kathy Lee and Hoda show must be great!moreless
  • More THoughts

    I am trying to watch the View today... I can't do it. I can't look at that distorted face of Rosie P. or listen to the yelling over each other. CANCEL the show
  • An intelligent woman is what the show needs!

    I no longer watch the View, but i saw that Dana Perino was going to be on, so I turned the sound down, as the show is a bunch of screamers, and waited until her segment. What a difference an intelligent woman makes, the show is actually good! But i am afraid ABC would not hire an intelligent Republican. Their choice is to go with either Elizabeth, stupid, or Nicole, loud and boring! Get this show back on track! I can no longer listen to the screaming or the stupidity! EvenWhoopie,what has happened to her!! Very sad show!moreless
  • Get rid of everyone

    Get rid of everyone and revamp the Show. Its Shrill, boring and Whoopi should at least learn to dress. Learn from The Talk.
  • Get rid of Rosie Perez

    Please drop Rosie Perez from the show. She comes across as just reading from a script rather than actually voicing a viewpoint. She tries to spout intelligent facts, but continually looks at her notes to read them. I'm tired of her accent which comes across as forced and fake.
