I want to watch this show, but I turn it often since too many people are talking at once. It is very annoying, and I can't hear what anyone is saying. Barbara Walters should know better, she is a seasoned reporter and speaker. Please have some courtesy and let one person speak till their are done.
Jenny Mccarthy continuously interrupts when Nancy Grace was on--she constantly interrupted her while she tried to talk--she even interrupts Barbara---Bad Choice--she needs to start her own--The Jenny Mccarthy Show and have no guests so she can make it all about her!
Individually I Love all the Cohosts. But with Sherri and Jenny interrupting making all about themselves, their families. Honestly the audience can't hear any views or opinions! I realize that this program was for different age groups this 2 need to grow up! Also YELLING DOES NOT GET YOUR POINT ACROSS WHEN YOUR TALKING OVER OTHER PEOPLE!!! I would start to watch again if I could actually hear everybody express their own opinions. Again I'm not unrealistic people are going to interrupt but not all the time.
I have watched the View, faithfully but since Joy left it has not been the same. I was happy with Elisabeth leaving. I do not care for Jenny and I like Sherri, but she seems different now. Whoopi is great! Hope there is change coming.
I was not crazy about some of the other Hosts that have come & Gone. I LOVE the energy that Sherri & Jenny bring to the show. I LOVE the calm maturity of Barbara & Whoopi also!!!! I am so happy to see & have all of the women of the view. I feel the diversity that they all bring to the table is both entertaining & informative, I also feel like if you don't like the changes, then watch something else & STOP YOUR BITCHIN!!!! I'll bet not everyone likes you or every one of your friends either!!!!!! Get a LIFE!!!
Apparently the White House referred to Christmas Trees as Holiday Trees for the first time this year, which prompted CBS presenter, Ben Stein, to present this piece which I would like to share with you. The following was written by Ben Stein and recited by him on CBS Sunday Morning Commentary. My confession: I am a Jew, and every single one of my ancestors was Jewish. And it does not bother me even a little bit when people call those beautiful lit up, bejewelled trees, Christmas trees. I don't feel threatened. I don't feel discriminated against. That's what they are, Christmas trees. It doesn't bother me a bit when people say, 'Merry Christmas' to me. I don't think they are slighting me or getting ready to put me in a ghetto. In fact, I kind of like it. It shows that we are all brothers and sisters celebrating this happy time of year. It doesn't bother me at all that there is a manger scene on display at a key intersection near my beach house in Malibu. If people want a nativity scene, it's just as fine with me as is the Menorah a few hundred yards away. I don't like getting pushed around for being a Jew, and I don't think Christians like getting pushed around for being Christians. I think people who believe in God are sick and tired of getting pushed around, period. I have no idea where the concept came from, that America is an explicitly atheist country. I can't find it in the Constitution and I don't like it being shoved down my throat. Or maybe I can put it another way: where did the idea come from that we should worship celebrities and we aren't allowed to worship God? I guess that's a sign that I'm getting old, too. But there are a lot of us who are wondering where these celebrities came from and where the America we knew went to. In light of the many jokes we send to one another for a laugh, this is a little different: This is not intended to be a joke; it's not funny, it's intended to get you thinking. Billy Graham's daughter was interviewed on the Early Show and Jane Clayson asked her 'How could God let something like this happen?' (regarding Hurricane Katrina). Anne Graham gave an extremely profound and insightful response. She said, 'I believe God is deeply saddened by this, just as we are, but for years we've been telling God to get out of our schools, to get out of our government and to get out of our being the gentleman He is, I believe He has calmly backed out. How can we expect God to give us His blessing and His protection if we demand He leave us alone?' In light of recent events... terrorist attacks, school shootings, etc. I think it started when Madeleine Murray O'Hare (she was murdered, her body found a few years ago) complained she didn't want prayer in our schools, and we said OK. Then someone said you better not read the Bible in school. The Bible says thou shalt not kill; thou shalt not steal, and love your neighbor as yourself. And we said OK. Then Dr. Benjamin Spock said we shouldn't spank our children when they misbehave, because their little personalities would be warped and we might damage their self-esteem (Dr. Spock's son committed suicide). We said an expert should know what he's talking about. And we said okay. Now we're asking ourselves why our children have no conscience, why they don't know right from wrong, and why it doesn't bother them to kill strangers, their classmates, and themselves. Probably, if we think about it long and hard enough, we can figure it out. I think it has a great deal to do with 'WE REAP WHAT WE Funny how simple it is for people to trash God and then wonder why the world's going to hell. Funny how we believe what the newspapers say, but question what the Bible says. Funny how you can send 'jokes' through e-mail and they spread like wildfire, but when you start sending messages regarding the Lord, people think twice about sharing. Funny how lewd, crude, vulgar and obscene articles pass freely through cyberspace, but public discussion of God is suppressed in the school and workplace. Are you laughing yet? Funny how when you forward this message, you will not send it to many on your address list because you're not sure what they believe, or what they will think of you for sending it. Funny how we can be more worried about what other people think of us than what God thinks of us. Pass it on if you think it has merit. If not, then just discard it.... no one will know you did. But, if you discard this thought process, don't sit back and complain about what a bad shape the world is in. My Best Regards, Honestly and respectfully, Ben Stein
ok ,,, the view is DONE. The only person worth watching is Wooopie ,,,, the rest are worthless. Jenny & Sherri are so NOT!!!!! I'm done. This is a joke. Tell Sherri to keep her opinions slient. Jenny ,,, really!!! This show is over.
Today Dec 6 I saw the tacky bit on Walmart toys - hope it was a joke as Walmart has the worst standing for employee abuse and sets a precedent for same - the presentation was tacky add so was the singing - I turned it off. Does anybody have a brain there?
I cannot stand to listen to Jenny. I gave it a healthy shot but she constantly talks over people and never stops when she knows others are talking. And she seems to always be screaming. She makes it just impossible to enjoy. Love Whoopi and Sherri is fine when not trying to keep up with Jenny's antics nowadays. Would hate o see the show crumble and be able to watch Whoopi
Love this show. I stll watch The View every night after work. I love Jenny she is funny and very nice. 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. Barbara is too old and cannot think clearly. Whoopi do not need a segment on shoes because no human being can walk in those shoes they are for decoration only. I luv Sherri because she is funny but she talks too much about her husband and son. Please give them some more ideas because I may have to turn the channel.
I used to like to watch The View, but since Jenny joined and Joy and Elizabeth left, I won't be watching it anymore. Whoopi & Sherri are great, but Jenny needs to loosen up, quit looking down, get rid of the glasses and be her real genuine self like Whoppi, Sherri & the past co-host have been and show a more gentle and tender side. Demi is on right now and she seems like a natural. She expresses herself very well in a cute, honest & tender way, just like she does on The X Factor. She's real.
I think it's great we were born on the same day. I absolutely love you & have enjoyed all your movies!! I laughed today when you talked about laughing at a bully. That is totally me! I have laughed @ people when I was treated unkind growing up and people would say that girl is crazy but it works because they left me alone! ! Laughter is so wonderful & healing in so many ways. Thankyou for sharing your spirit with each of us everyday on TV.
On your show today, Barbara went on & on about how the women on the show never put down other women & and supported women. However I saw many shows where that was not the case. Especially during the election periods. Joy Behar. Took every opportunity afforded her to run down & make fun of Sarah Palin & her children. Not only that, but she thought it was funny. Not so! I stopped watching the show after the 2008 election. There simply wasn't a balance of views. I recently revisited the show only to find the ones of the views. No Barbara , your show is not the same show that began 17 years ago. I won't be a viewer!
You are so do you feel it necessary to but in every time someone is trying to answer questions that YOU asked them? It's ok to just shut up sometimes. I have had it. If my channel is on when The View comes on I turn it immediantley! I just can't take it any longer. It is so obvious that Whoopi doesn't like Sherri! She is very expressive with her eyes and this tells it all. If Whoopi isn't on it seems, by the previous reviews, that people will not watch it. Come on exec's. Do something about this. What are you waiting for!!
I am so disappointed in the way that the view is going. Everytime there is a guest, you ask a question and they never get to finish a thought. Everyone but Whoopie, butts in, and you talk over each dearly love everyone but take a note from "The Talk" and let whoever is talking, finish talking!
I used to love watching the view. Current topics were discussed with insight and intelligence. With Sherri and Jennie on the show it always turns to sexual situations or about Sherri's son. There's about 'ZERO' intelligence between the two of them. I've always admired Barbara Walters for her class and knowledge on almost all subjects. Jennie and Sherri are so loud and clueless they make the show 'NOT' worth watching.
Elisabeth has a much better "View" on Fox and Friends!! I stopped watching The View years ago because I could not stomach the way everyone treated their "token" Conservative!! It is great to see her finally getting the respect that she deserves!!
I think Barbara is way overdue to leave the show or be behind the scenes and leave the place for someone fresh and exciting,she did her thing and its like a over cooked love Woppie,Barbara is just too prim and proper for the show
I have watched the view since the beginning. Even with the previous hosts coming and going, I enjoyed it. I have to say though unless Whoopi is on there now, I am just bored silly. The new "skits" are like some of the worst SNL skits. I miss Joy and Elisabeth both. They were able to keep up a lively discussion with intelligence. I sadly will have to find something else to watch which shows "women of different backgrounds and views". This show certainly doesn't live up to that at all anymore.
Since Joy left, the show is unwatchable and unbearable. Sherri is so dumb and uninformed-not very funny and constantly talks about her son spare us! Jenny has nothing to say of any meaning and kind of looks like she belongs on a Country Music station. They all talk over each other. Barbara, who is so brilliant on David Letterman, is just reduced to discussing Miley Cyrus and birth control and nothing of interest. There's a whole world out here of interesting topics -they need someone with a mind and a world view. The show is doomed. And those pictures in the background WHY??
While standing in our kitchen and listening to our TV and not watching I overheard a remark that was upsetting to say the least. It was during a contest concerning academy award questions. Small prizes were being awarded for correct answers, I believe, from the studio audience contestants. A question was asked with a choice of 3-4 answers and suddenly, I believe it was, Sherri Sheppard said " That's a white persons question". I was astounded at this comment. Black people in America are always complaining about racist remarks from us "whities" and thus I was floored. Your program was calling Paula Deen about her remarks and here you go saying this about white people having special questions that they are better at answering than black people. You should be ashamed. This panelist should be put off the show and highly criticized for her remark on national TV.
I was hoping it was just me. I eagerly recorded the View everyday. I will stop now. Unless Whoopi is on there, it is a horrible show. Elisabeth's views were not my favorite but it at least kept the show interesting. Sherri has always and continues to be hopeless uninformed and excruciatingly loud. Her views do not make any sense and she is a total waste of time. Whoopi has a daughter, Barbara had a daughter, why must we always hear about Jeffrey. I would have thought the powers that be would see that this woman doesn't belong there and neither does Jenny McCarthy. I am curious as to why she was chosen. Not a good fit at all. The show stinks now. Unless it gets better, it will be off the air before Barbara's retirement date.
