  • Like Watching The Titanic Sink!

    Okay, so I just can't take it anymore, not one more stinking show and I do mean stinking! "The View," They should rename the show Whoopi's View! I know she doesn't care what people think, she's made that abundantly clear several times, it's like a broken record. I'm so glad she doesn't care because neither do we anymore. Her opinion is the only one that matters, at least to her anyway. I've loved every single thing Whoopi Goldberg has done, up until now.

    I've watched this show since day one and today I couldn't watch more than ten minutes of it and pulled it from our DVR! Done, good-bye, it's like watching a train wreck in slow motion! Moving on to NIcole who's head is so far up Whoopi's "cushion" she can no longer see the light of day. If she kisses her butt anymore it will become an entirely different show. I don't think I ever agreed with anything Elizabeth H. said when she was on the show, however I respected the fact that she had an opinion and was not afraid to express it, after all I told myself over and over, that the show after all was called The View! Nicole, remember when you HAD an opinion that was your own?

    Moving on to Michelle, the first thing that comes to mind is, why? Why, why, why? The the person who hired her for the show, what were you thinking, it's almost as bad as bringing Rosie O'Donnell back. Ridiculous comments, mostly trying to just be funny, emphasis on trying. Hasn't had a thing to contribute since her first appearance on the show. Awkward and uncomfortable to watch. I dare you to try and make sense of anything she says. Raven, nothing against Raven and all but really? The View? She's stuck at age 16, somewhere between, what do I want to be when I grow up and will someone teach me about government, history, current events, and well how about just life? Or how about being a professional when speaking to a guest? Shushing a guest when she's trying to explain HER opinion is not being a such a great host on a show, once again, called The View! The only, and I do mean the only saving grace on that show is Rosie Perez and she's leaving! That's because an intelligent, kind, supportive, understanding, talented, woman with an opinion can't survive with the rest of them. She continually tries to voice her opinion and is never heard! Silly Rosie thought she would be able to speak and be heard. She is amazing, love to listen to what she has to say on many subjects whether I agree or not, her delivery is never hurtful, opinionated or bordering on the ridiculous.

    I bid you farewell bottom of the barrel The View, now I know why shows go off the air way before they hit rock bottom. You missed your window of opportunity for that ladies. Run Forest, run!moreless
  • July 2

    What's with all the eating on live TV? I find the hosts eating and talking with their mouths full very distracting.. you might as well rename" the view" the Whoopi show because it seems like everything is all about whoopie, who can sometimes be very full of herself.. and Nicole Wallace needs to stop kissing her ass. I miss Barbara Walters
  • Nicole Wallace

    You're firing her for not keeping up with the K's?? Shame on you!!! She has so much to offer, on so many levels. She makes us smile and she's got heart. Even with my favorite (Whoopie), I don't think I'll continue watching.
  • Bye bye View

    Been watching for heard multiple "bitch, get the idea. Not to mention talking while just is 0 we all know Whoopi, don't text her, she doesn't care. Nicole is the ONLY one of this group who should stay. Or keep Nicole & balance..
  • why why why do you let the best hosts go.

    I am a Democrat but love Nicole. You got to stop getting rid of the good ones. Loved Joy- gone, loved Rosie gone, loved Sherry-maybe coming back; disliked Elizabeth-gone . Now I hear you may add Candace C. Sorry but she is too opinionated and too straight laced. No give and with Raven being gay there will be conflict. Raven is ok and so is Michelle. Michelle is funny. Back to Nicole. She is very informative on the political scene. I like that she doesn't know everything about TV. She is intelligent, Is that the problem? So what she has a funny laugh. Lets not have anyone too smart. Come on folks, keep Nicole and get rid of other dead wood. OOPS! I understand why Sherry was let go with all her marital problems at the time. Blame the woman and make her pay by losing her job. Good to have her back. Again Keep Nicole who brings structure and smartness and political savvy to the show.moreless
