  • What View

    Raven really?? Rosie, questionable but better than Raven!! Raven's view or comments if you can call them that are evidence that the girl has nothing to offer. Discussing politics today and she stated her first time voting was for Obama, by the way a good choice so did I. But then she continued on that in the past she wasn't that interested to much In politics because subjects that were discussed really didn't interest her and would be if there were more candidates that looked like her!! Now if she meant physical appearance God help us! And if she meant people of color Shame on you!! You just added to our racist problem in this country. And lastly if she meant a reference to her intelligence and knowledge of what the important issues are in America than God help the future generations that will live in this country, my heart goes out to you!!

  • I like Raven

    The show today was great with guess hosts-Raven Symone and Michelle Collins.
  • Seriously is Raven staying on the show??

    I use to be a big fan of the show until you guys got Raven on the show... Why Why is she even there... I am very disappointed in the show..
  • Why is Raven still on the show?

    I love The View but I'm getting so frustrated watching Raven. If she doesn't want to be there she should quit. She always has this bored look on her face. I even saw her roll her eyes once. She acts like a snotty 13 year old. Her hair and her clothes are just too much as well. Today every time she moved her head her hair would flop up and down. Someone should have done something! And she also had this huge choker with a big cross on it that was literally stabbing her in the throat! That couldn't be comfortable. I don't even care about her clothes and hair really, she just NEEDS to change her attitude and facial expressions. I can't believe ABC is allowing this. Her sitting there with this "mmhmm, whatever, I don't care. I know it all already. This is stupid" look on her face. They are going to lose viewers.moreless
  • It's a crappy View!

    Used to look forward to the View when there was halfway intelligent woman on it. I watch this last week and who are these people? What useless nonsense! Joy back on and what a loud, opinionated, and annoying woman! Raven? Really? I never wrote a review on a program before but thought this show needed input! And from reading some of the other reviews, I am not alone! I don't see too many "Fans!"moreless
