    • I agree with return to roots

      I also am growing increasingly concerned with what the producers are thinking about when it comes to the View. There are so many inane talk shows on the air currently, it would be refreshing if the View catered to the more informed and articulate viewer.

      hearing about Whoopi's flatulence or a chair, whether Whoopi's breasts have to be picked up and flung over her shoulder before she can sit or whatever other silliness is being discussed.

      Whoopi is a terrible moderator. She discards comments from other panelists who don't share her view, she has not mastered the art of the "topic transition she rolls her eyes and looks bored "She also seems so uninformed about the topics and the guests. She is extremely rude to Paula. The show has become Whoopi's view and she is a bully.

      Joy: Love, love, love Joy! Sometimes her comments make zero sense (but that happens to everyone), but she is hi Her am young, so I don't am the voice of the youth, I know many WOMEN in their 30's and they are well informed, literate and rational. I wish she wlarious. I like her voice and I like her liberal-Live and let live-view. She seems the most genuine to me. I enjoy when she moderates. The show seems friendlier and relaxed, and the pace moves smoother. That is why I watch on Fridays because Joy is the moderator and the show is much better.

      Candace: I think she is ok mainly she looks to afraid to talk because Whoopi will bash her if she doesn't agree with her.

      Raven: stupid and boring

      Sonny Hostin: Yes, add her permanently! Intelligent, can reasonably see both political points of view, beautiful and composed. I have a feeling Whoopi is threatened by her and that's why she hasn't been offered a full time gig.

      Paula: Oh, Paula. So cute, yet so zany. I think she is great reading from a teleprompter for the news, but for The View, she hasn't found her footing. I think it would be easier for her if Whoopi weren't on the panel. When non-entertainment guests are on, I think Paula should lead the questions because of her background in journalism.

      Sherri: No!!! she needs to stay gone very dumb.

      Michelle: I'm sure she is a fun person to hang out with, but she is not a good fit for The View. She tries too hard for the laugh and she makes me uncomfortable watching her.

    • Paula Farris, a dim light

      I don't like Paula Farris. She's too stiff and unrelateable. I cringe every time someone makes a joke and then have to explain it to her. Or when she tries to make a point or display her attempt at humor, the rest of the panel has to explain what Paula means or is trying to say. For a media person she is flat and does not know about everyday things or anything outside of reporting news.moreless
    • DISCUSTED!!!!!

      I have watched The View for a long time. I was appalled awhile back when Joy remarked about nurse stethoscopes. Being a caring and forgiving person, I continued to watch the show every day. Today, I am no longer watching The View after Joy insulted Trump. Joy said Trumps winning speech made him sound like a kindergartner. I have been a huge Trump supporter from the very beginning of his run for President and years before that. It's obvious Candice is the only republican on your show. I can tell how frightened she is to say anything political because everyone jumps down her throat to prove her wrong every time she speaks about her political views. I have always tried to be open-minded and listen to all sides, but every day Joy makes horrible Trump remarks that are unnecessary. Being a talk show with many different types of viewers, your show should remain more neutral and not one-sided opinions on issues. I am done with your show. Good-bye.moreless
    • The hosts on the "View"

      I love Whoopi and am so glad they brought Joy back! I also love that they brought in Candace Cameron Bure and Raven Symone! It is great to get the opinions of the younger hosts. I am not too fond of Michelle. She always seems to be trying to take over the show from Whoopi. Half the time the things she says are not related to the topic at hand. And the jokes she thinks are funny are not funny at all! They are plain stupid! I wanted to also comment on today's show (Feb. 10, 2016), Raven Symone's make-up looked exceptional!!! Great job make-up artists. :)

      Why does she talk so much? When she is on it is her show. Get rid of her.
