  • Please, not Rosie again.

    Sorry, but if Rosie comes back, I leave again. She is too rude, disrespectful, and obnoxious for me. Please put back people with varying opinions who also know how to be reasonably polite to one another and who will actually consider different ideas about things. Joy Behar and Elizabeth Hassellbeck knew how to give reasoned opinions and did their research. Sherri and Jennie are loads of fun but still have good ideas. Whoopi is the greatest. Any of those hosts and several others had great discussions of things that mattered and still could be friends. Not Rosie. She is a mistake made twice.

  • Rise up people!

    I hope the network will listen and either re-vamp this show or cancel it.

  • Seriously?

    Rosie O'Donnell back on The View? Seriously? My only consolation is that Whoopie might be able to keep her under control; however, I won't be watching. O'Donnell is on a par with Jerry Springer in my opinion.

    And The Muppets? Are you really that hard up? When I hear O'Donnell is gone again, I'll check back with your show.

  • Hasslebeck leaving is not reason for fewer viewers

    We could'nt wait for ignorant and arrogant hasslebeck to leave. She's such a hypocrite like most fox viewers we were excited to not have to include her in our mornings anymore. The reason why viewers stopped watching is the lack of respect I had for the remaining hosts and I love Whoopie and Jenny but someone obviously told them to dummy up and not disagree with the guests. What a mistake! They started looking like a stepford host. They were silent while statements like"I became republican because I found it to be the caring party,more compassion, giving!!! The party that tries to get rid of school milk and breakfast programs,pass Lilly Ledbedder, pay for viagra but not birth control,tried to take away college funding but probably used it got tired of no one speaking up against Elisabeth when she was yelling for days about Obama and censorship yet no one mentioned Bush and The Dixie Chicks!! Even Joy looked like she was sitting on her hands. The show became trivial and I don't like "The Talk" since they got rid of Holly and Lea. I have not watched it since. Really can't stand Julie or IT'S NOT BECAUSE THE WOMEN ARE BETTER I believe it's being censored and it shows. A table of housewives from the 50's.moreless
  • Why new hosts?

    I think the three girls they had did a good job. I really think it was so wrong to let sherri go! I really liked the view and Whoopie is the only good one left. I think I may watch something else. Should have left things alone and just find someone for Barbara Walters spot.
