  • Rosie

    I will never watch the view again. Rosie will be your downfall. Just wait and see.
  • mistakes, mistakes

    Someone in charge of the View has lost it! Rosie is NOT the one to bring back, they have let Jenny and

    Sherry go, who brought some life into the one thing, I know The View will be replaced by

    the Talk for me! Nothing against Rosie, but her personality grates.
  • The Post Turtle

    if it is even possible, abc will go into negative ratings. Bringing Rosie back??/ Really? Already, this show is a "post Not sure what a post turtle is? Then do this: Walk out through a farmers pasture and find a fence there is a turtle sitting on the top this fence post, the first question you will ask is, "How did that turtle get up there on the top of this fence post?"
  • It's sad you can't find any real talent.

    You don't go back in time, you move ahead. We didn't want Rosie the first time and now you are teaming her up with Whoopi, what a joke. I think a good team with a lot of different views would be people like Sarah Palin, Kathy Griffin, Ross Mathews, Diane Sawyer would be great, and replace Whoopi with Jay Leno. That would be a great talk show.
  • The Henhouse

    When all you ladies on The View keep trying to talk over each other you sound like a Henhouse full of Chickens. Please try to remember why you are there and having the conversation you are having. It is because of your audience and your viewers. Take the competition to be heard out of it and give one another a chance to speak. Your viewers will appreciate it more than you will ever know!

    As to the news Sherry Shepherd and Jenny McCarthy are leaving the show, I'm ok with Sherry leaving; I feel she has run her coarse and she talks over others constantly! But I'm sad that Jenny has to go too. I like her happy joyful personality and really would like to see more of her. Whoopi is a great anchor to the show and can pretty much work with anybody except Bill O'Reilly. So, keep Jenny and see where the rest goes!

    I just heard Elisabeth Hasselbecks response to Rosie ODonnell returning to the view and I am very offended by what she said. Just because someone does not agree about what our country's military is doing in other parts of the world does not mean they are "flying in the face of our military". Gees, what a nut job that Hasselbeck is!! Well at least she is now where she belongs, Fox News!! Nobody has to hear her unless they tune in to Faux News.
  • and in addition......

    Couldn't agree more with the comments made about Sherri Sheppard. One glaring omission, in my opinion; plain and simple, she's a racist.

    Have enjoyed The View since it started but I've stopped watching. Being a guy I never felt I had to defend being a fan of the show or my masculinity was threatened. No longer the case. It's become an embarrassment. just sayin;

  • Celebrate differences and listen to each other respectfully!

    I have no idea why this show is called The View when you only ever hear one point if view! I would truly love to hear both sides of views of the issues! Talking over people when expressing an opposing view is simply rude and disrespectful! We teach our children to celebrate our differences yet adults can't do the same! I think this the show is one of exclusion instead of inclusion! This country is so divided why not help bring them together with intelligent and respectful conversation! There is value in hearing both sides!
  • More THoughts

    Jenni and Shari cannot leave soon enough! Shari is SO RUDE she should never be on any TV show again.
  • Anothe day-another panel-hmmm

    Whoopi is a great moderator-although I don't agree with some of her political views-I love her--I miss Barbara, Elizabeth and Joy-stopped watching when Rosie was on the panel-to loud, to angry, ugly views-it would be great to include an Asian and Mexican into the mix to represent our truly diverse culture. Love when Ross is on, he represents still another segment of melting pot.

  • NOT Happy News Regarding Sarah Palin

    I and my friends are the biggest "View" fans--and there are many of us. We watch it every day. We have ALL agreed that if Sarah Palin is hired for the View, we will NEVER, NEVER, NEVER watch "The View" ever again! This is absolutely deplorable news and I am heartsick. Rosie O'Donnel would be very welcomed, but please heed my warning---you will make a big mistake by hiring Sarah Palin. She is disingenuous, uninformed, and she is basically a redneck. I do not want to hear her "take" on ANY issue whatsoever. She is a hunter---you might as well have hired Ted Nugent to be on the panel. And now I hear she is trying to impeach the President. She is bad news, and if she is even remotely being considered for "The View", you have broken the heart of a number one fan of 18 years. Barbara---shame on you!
  • Who the hell is Sunny Hostin?

    She seems to be out of place on this show, Did she miss getting a chance to be on the George stuck up show? I can say you wasted your money today. Whoopi seems to be the only one on the show that has any common sense, of course there is the prejudice one and I can even deal with her, but damn really, putting a woman on the show that really seems to be in a high class world not understanding the world she is in was mistake on the producers part hell this woman makes Jenny seem intelligent.
  • Changes are horrible

    My mom is 67 and I'm 32. We love to watch the view. We heard the rumor that Jennifer McCarthu is not coming back to the show because she doesn't relate to the audience. In that case abc is nuts and the day jenny is no longer on the show we will no longer watch and I'm sure that speaks for many people. The view producers seem to switch the cast a lot but you guys are making a huge mistake!!!!!!!
  • Show needs better content

    Its been a long time since I've heard about something happening in the world and thought "I can't wait to see The View tomorrow morning and see what the ladies have to say about THIS!". Didn't always agree with the opinions, but everyone on the show was smart, well informed and seemed to do their homework. The current hosts are presenting mostly fluff, gone are the political viewpoints and insights to the top headlines. And Sherri keeps insisting we all want to hear about the Kardashians. No, Sherri, not all of us. I admire Whoopi, but have recently been disappointed that she seems uninformed about new developments in continuing stories. She seems more interested in stating what she "knows" without admitting she might not know it all. I agree with the poster that I'd rather not see a permanent male co-host. Once a week is great, but this was supposed to be about womens' views! I'll be interested to see if this show can get back to must-see status for me.
  • Cast Firings

    I now see all the changes made but, first heard about it just now while watching Kelly & Michael. Did they announce these changes last week on air and if so where can I find the episode? I must have missed something although I try to watch daily. Thanks for any feedback on this issue.
  • Not Happy with Changes

    I was not unhappy to see Barbara retire but I am sorry to see Sherri and Jenny go. Please tell abc not to add a permanent male cohost. I detest the background photos from viewers, the selfies, the new shopping link. Who came up with this crap? Too bad Joy Behar left but I can't understand why people are so in love with Whoopi? Admittedly Sherri talked too much about Jeffrey but couldn't they have just clued her in. No loyalty in the world anymore.
  • Shake It Up!

    Nine possible additions to Whoopie: Meredith Vieira, Margaret Cho, Mae C Jamison, Kim Fields, Rishwarya Rae, Gladys Knight, Sheryl Lee Ralph, Serena Williams, and Raven-Symone Pearman . All are intelligent, interesting and involved. Meredith is probably a lock so for the other eight women, i would suggest a trial period up to one month for each of the other women the suspense will be palpable! One or two will definitely gel with Whoopie, the audience, and The View's work ethics/logistics. Here's to many more years of The View keeping women's views in the forefront..
  • Yikes! The View needs revamping

    I have longed for that show to be directed by someone who could rein in all the panelists talking at one time, tone down their blatant "horniness", and encourage intelligent conversation. It has been a while since intelligence prevailed. I hope that more intelligent people can take over. Ross Matthews is a nice man, but I believe his persona is to be a clown, and his opinions seem fluff. I usually like Whoopie, but on a recent show I believe I heard her call the male co host a bonehead; the co host didn't agree with her on a point. I never understood Barbara's intense interest in the sexual orientation of the guests, and asking personal questions along those lines. Maybe she grew up in an era where same sex arrangements were a scandal. Some guests were left alone, probably by prior arrangements.

    Recently, in my opinion, this show has fallen to the lowest level of broadcasting. I was not surprised the other day when the group had a discussion of penis size; it was bound to happen.

    We all hope that new management can select intelligent people this time around and maybe take some tips from The Talk, since their ratings are up.
  • Glad to see change!

    I am shocked to hear that both are leaving... I liked Jenny McCarthy as she was refreshing and funny however... She was constantly promoting herself to be asked as guest appearance on different TV shows a couple of times and it threw the guests off by the body language that I saw. Sherry is getting too personal with her kid and it looks like she is gaining weight back after all the efforts of losing. . she takes things too personal. . Whoopi is the only grounded host remaining since Barbara left... You need a co anchor like her with a level head and objective views. . .it will be interesting to hear Barbara Walters reaction if she comments at all or she knew it was coming... Bill doesn't show his face much like he used to during commercial breaks... Speaking of which too many . . every five minutes there's a break . .come on should be every 15 minutes.
  • the view

    The big problem about the view is I don't watch due to all talking over each mess
  • Love The View

    I am sorry to see Sherri and Jennie leave. I know Sherri is going through a lot because of her failed marriage She talks too much about her son and personal life. I think she just get carried away and cannot control her mouth. I sill love this show. I stll watch The View every night after work. I love Jenny she is funny and very nice but she do not have to leave because they fired Sherri. I love the music and dancing. The View has been my favorite show for years. I can always count on The View to make me laugh but lately it been very boring. I hate Joy is leaving she says stupid funny things. Elizabeth is too serious. I do not agree with her politics but they need someone on the show that can stand up for their views. I do not have to worry about Sherri because she is a business woman. She do comic shows, has a game show and she is always asked to host different events. Please give them some more ideas and better host because I may have to turn the channel.

  • time for a new "view"

    A great addition to the view, if they consider a male, would be Ross Matthews! It's time for a big change and I think he would add comic relief. Think about it Barb!!
  • The New View - Its a good thing !!!

    I have high hopes for the new View !!! I am sure Whoopi will rise to the occasion and save the show single handedly. Whoopi is better off alone.... After all you can not soar like an eagle when you are surrounded by Turkeys. Perhaps we can return to the old format when intelligent discussions, about real issues, took place. YOU GO GIRL !!!!

    I think when Barbara left Jenny and Sherri were vying for her slot - neither is capable enough for it.
  • 10
    Love the new all r hope u don't have that Bill Rancic as a regular!!!! He comes off to me as a self centered, not having all of his info. self centered & shallow to make a name for himself & a permanent place on everything everybody else venting my "view")
  • B-O-R-I-N-G

    Haven't watched the show in ages. Each time I TRY to take a peek, I can hardly stand to watch for 5 min. Sherry is still annoying and mouthy, Jenny McCarthy likewise... I could not stand Elizabeth, but her moronic comments were amusing, and Joy was a comic relief, and had some common sense. Not sure how Whoopi can stand being among them. I stopped watching when Joy left. I think this show has run it's course...
  • Please Sherry ..... shut up

    Sherry is ruining the show. I am tired if her narrow mindedness her horrible wigs her big mouth her stupid faces she makes and the "smothering" stories about her son. She is the last one to give advice on relationships and she manages to do so. The show fell apart when Joy and Elizabeth left. I don't know how Whoopi does only talent on the show.

    Well it appears someone was listening and watching. Sherri and Jenny are both gone. Jennys contract was not being renewed next month and it was well known but she still tweeted "if Sherri goes I go". Ummm honey you were already gone. Either she is delusional or her ego is tremendous. I do think that if given a different panel of women keeping Whoopi ..... Jenny would have blended in. I think that Sherri staying on after Joy Elizabeth and Barbara really brought the show down. She just couldn't carry it and her lack of class and intellect was apparent.

    Jenny needs to stay very funny and has thoughts that are new and interesting. What happen to the idea of 5 women from different ages, and backgrounds and having smart conversations, about real issues, The show has become a platform for more soft porn behavior that a child can not watch any more. Please bring back smart people that know about law, politics, ect.. that can be debate ideas not just repeat tabloid items with stupid smartmouth remarks.
  • whoppie should be banned

    remember paula dean and her big shit racism thing well whoppie needs to go to for racist remarks,
  • Please behave like ladies-if sherry & jenny remember how.

    Can no longer bear to watch this Sherry's loud & insincere voice,& Jenny butting in ,oh lets face it they all butt in .This show now just a demo;of rudeness & no research on topics. PLEASE take it Off the air.
  • Let Jenny talk!!!

    I enjoyed Sherry when she first joined the show. She seemed natural and laid back. BUT! She has become a really annoying "loudmouth"! Interupting everyone and then flashing that insincere grin, which is getting on my nerves. She doesn't let Jenny finish a thought or respond to anything!! I'm more interested in what Jenny and Whoopi have to say, rather than Sherry always acting as though what she has to say is more important! I always loved Hot Topics with all the chatter and, as I said, I'm very interested in Jenny's opinions (I think she's greay!) and Whoopi's (she holds the show together!) , but recently, I sadly and angrily, actually turned it off because Sherry just wouldn't stop talking and interupting and I found myself saying over and over to her, "just shut-up" once in a while and let somebody else talk!!! Without Sherry there today, I felt the show was back to normal - none of her competive incesant babble - and I enjoyed it so much more - like the "old days"!!! I wish Bill or Barbara would reign Sherry in, or I'm afraid I'm going to miss Jenny and Whoppi because I won't be watching much longer if she doesn't change.
  • A case of interruptus!

    Really getting tired of everyone interrupting each other and the guest host - not Whoopie as much as Jenny and Sherry. They don't even listen to each other before feeling the urge to insert their opinion. It gets exhausting to listen/watch. Barbara used to try and make sure that didn't happen. Not so much fun anymore...
