        • I used to LOVE The View when it first came on. I loved the diversity and it was great seeing intelligent women on TV. Then, Star Jones met Al Reynolds and suddenly it became the “Star and Al wedding plans” show. Rosie always had something negative to say about everything and Elizabeth could not come down from her high horse long enough to see anyone elses “view“.
          The show has become a joke. I think ABC (or whatever network they are on) should shoot that show and put it out of it’s misery.

        • They all seam to hate each other. I catch it on occasion, but its the same crap all the time. Elizabeth defends the current Republican and the rest of them defend the Democrat.  I really dislike Elizabeth though, she won’t shut up, always interrupts and talks over the others. And she speed talks like crazy.  

          Then at the end they have to tell us that they all love each other.

        • Hey Stephanie,

          I catch it every once in awhile if I am home at that time and channel surfing... Anyway, I can handle about 10 minutes of it and it has to go. They all talk over each other...it drives me crazy.

        • I’ve never liked The View.  I can’t stand all of that bickering....talking over one another and I don’t care for any of the hosts....including Elizabeth...and I’m a die hard Republican.  They are all nuts!!!  I’m in agreement...it’s time to shut that show down.  And Barbara Walters....she needs to go too.  I’ve lost all respect for her as well.  Rosie O‘Donnell...totally obnoxious and I know she has been gone...THANK GOD.  She needs to have someone wire her mouth shut!!  Whoopi...I can take her or leave her....Joy....she needs to go back to comedy..maybe.  She is obnoxious too. And whoever that other girl is....she’s a filler....nothing much to her.
          Ok...that’s all I have to say about that pathetic crew.

        • I really only watch it when someone is coming on that I want to see.  I think once it became the Star and All Wedding show, it lost me.  And now Star and Al are even married anymore.  Karma, Karma, Karma.  It sure does come back to you. Then when Elizabeth and Rosie kept going at it, I stopped watching.  I think Whoppie and Sheri add some flavor to the mix but most mornings I’m busy and forget all about the show by that time.

          This is funny . . . I noticed your blog on “The View” when I came to post my new column “The Cacophony of Chatter“. :)) Do you believe in coincidence??

        • Hello Ladie,
          I see we have moved on to hate another day.LOL
          I Hate the view. ABC can’t cancel them because I would have nothing on TV to bitch about. Well, I guess that’s not true there is alway DR. Phil and Oprah and Rachel Ray. Well back to the view. The best thing about the view was Rosie O. Love the fights between her and the Donald. and What is up with Bab’s did you see the way she treated the McCain’s what makes the celb’s political experts? They are all over Obama ever laughing at the fact that he is some how related to BRAD PIT another ass but I must say what an ASS.LOL
          I use to like Bab’s when she was a serious reporter. Now she wants to be Oprah.

        • The show was a good idea in the beginning but it’s just getting old now. There is no way to get that many women together and have good chemistry between them. We like to “cat fight” too much! If they could just state their opinions and give each other respect for them, the show could work. All I see lately is condescending attitudes toward each other. I wonder how many of them hate waking up knowing they have to go sit through another day of it. I know I don’t think I can!

        • I liked Rosie when she had her own show before the Tom Selek brake down. Now she think she has to be tough all the time. She has to beat you down or else. She is funny, She is a good mother and she at times might have a point but to have this KILL ALL REPUBlICAn is to much.

        • OMG...You have hit on one of my favorite subjects “The View“!  I have gone off on this pack of gals on many occasions in my blog “CyberHotFlash” several times.  If I watch the show, which is rare now, I am constantly screaming at Joy Behart to just “shut-up!“.  I used to think this woman was funny, but now she just aggravates me to the point of distraction...she’s so arrogant in her opinions and she treats the guests and the panel members she doesn’t agree with disrespectfully.  Who told this woman that her opinion mattered?  Barbara Walters has lost all her creditability as a news journalist in my book.  All she is doing these days is promoting her biography...I don’t even want to read it.  Whoopi Goldberg is the only sane woman on the panel, other than Sherri. Sherri tends to fade in to the background when the topics get too dicey.  Elisabeth has her good days and her bad days...I respect her for being the only conservative Republican in the group...she is carrying a huge burden there.  She holds her own at times...but as conservative as she may be...she is young and has a lot to learn.  She tends to sound niaive at times. I don’t even want to discuss Rosie...I am glad that she left.  I refused to watch the show when she was on.  I wish she would go back to comedy...this is her God-given talent, along with being a good mother(I assume).  Star Jones...well, she got her elaborate wedding, now didn’t she. Hurray for Star...but now she is divorced.  I was stupid enough to watch it all. We all knew she was marrying Al just to fulfill her childhood dreams, at least I did.  I am glad she got it out of her system.  What is she doing now?  I forget...do we really care...probably not.

          So, I don’t really care if the “The View” stays or goes...the only thing I get from the show is great articles to write for my blog...so as long as they are on...I will watch on occasion and then write about the aggravating banter that goes on there.

        • About the view, I read an article yesterday saying that Elizabeth may leave because she is tired of being the only republican and can’t handle getting beat up on when the subject arises. Would you care if she left the show? I am not sure if I would.

        • I think the whole show has to leave. I don’t blame her for leaving. Everyday they gang up on her and so does the audience. Since when is having morals and beliving in God become such a terrible thing? If you want to live in a socialist world pick any country and then move there. Socialism is not here in the US nor do we want it.

        • I am not a fan of “The View” and its mostly for all the reasons stated here already.  I hated Rosie and her big mouth.  If she actually had anything earth shattering to say, it would have been okay, but she just talked to hear her own voice.  I also agree that its very one sided democratic, leaving Elisabeth having to fight to get a word in edgewise, and its made her look like rediculous and like a bull dog.  

          I hope they do shut down the show, but I doubt it. As to Elisabeth leaving and getting her own show.  I hope she does get her own show.  I am republican also, and I think she would do well in her own show.

        • iidlyyckma I agree with you except with the elisabeth statement. Whoopie should have her own talk show alone with Elizabeth that wouldn’t be so bad. Whoopie is so much better than this show why she is still there... whoopie does seem bored doesn’t she.lol

        • I can’t watch The View anymore because controvery and fighting make me cringe! I can’t even watch confrontations on scripted shows! I do not back EH in any way whaysoever, but it is too bad that she is the lone voice. She needs a more polished, articulate, informed, open-minded Repub to ratchet her down. Whoopi is a bulldozer, and will not let others finish their statements. Maybe that’s the main thing I hate, no true debate, just shout-downs.

          I went to a taping once, back when Meredith was still there and Star hadn’t completely lost her mind, and it was so pleasant.

        • I am sorry cindylouwho1966 a water down Elizabeth would make her one more democrate liberal on the show. The whole show needs to shut down. I do agree with you that it would be nice if it would be more balanced. 1 dem’s and 1 republicans and 3 indepentents that would creat a debate and would show the true views of the country. I think we are all moderates it’s the folks in washington that or left and right non in the middle.

        • Jackie is right....all of them are nothing but trash...and money hungry hostesses who only care about themselves....and the famous ratings.  

          I’d much rather watch Orange County Choppers.....LOL at least they actually make something...and they are really funny.  

          I think all of us that think The View needs to go...needs to write ABC..or whoever has the show...and tell them....we are sick of it.  

          That Barbara Walters....needs to retire.  She is becoming more rude and obnoxious in her old age.  I guess some of Rosie rubbed off on her.  And then why did she feel the need to tell about her affair with that guy after all these years.  He’s married and has another life.  I’ll tell you why....MONEY....AND ....FAME.  That right there put the nail in the coffin for me.....she is a disgrace.  Sorry....I still thought it was October 1st....LOL

        • I just don’t watch that show anymore.  I was a devoted viewer in the very beginning, when that Debbie gal was on it.  I can’t stand Rosie anymore....she’s really changed.  I use to love Regis & Kathie Lee way back when as well.  Sorry, I guess I used to like Kathie Lee’s positive outlook on life. Although I like Regis, & I like Kellie, I just think the show is boring.  Same ol‘, same ‘ol. I enjoy watching the Today show with Hoda & Kathie Lee & occasionaly, The Bonnie Hunt Show.  She is hilarious!!

        • When I said trash...I was grouping all talk shows...for the most part...they are.  Not just The View....but...the majority of them.  They are a waste of life. And I did say majority...there are a few that may be worth watching.  

          Well....to be honest with you....I really do not know if I would or not.  And I’m being honest.  But the mighty $1 always prevails and influences most people’s decisions.  Even so...doesn’t mean you have to be such an ass.

          Well..whatever you think....highly opinionated...large egos...to me....they are so very obnoxious. And some days....just pure ridiculous.  

          It’s hurts my ears to even hear them.  And that is how it’s been from day one.  I clearly remember watching the first show thinking....these people are rude and keep talking over one another...the show is too dang loud.  

          And I wouldn’t refer to Barbara as Queen...she is no Queen.  But...that is your opinion.  Frankly I wouldn’t give you a dime to see or talk to any of them.

          I would never ever go to a taping of the View....yuck.

        • The View has never been a program i could tolerate for more than a fraction of a program.  In the beginning, it was Joy who annoyed me the most.  While she is occasionally funny, she is typically obnoxious.  Star Jones was/is so full of herself, i’m surprised she can manage life in her smaller body!  The only thing worst than her leaving was Rosie’s arrival.  Talk about rude!  Elizabeth is mouthy and behaves as if she is on the playground, screaming to be noticed by the popular girls!  Whoopie was a welcome addition, as is Sherri Shepard.  At least those two have SOME decorum!  Joy continues to be obnoxious...anyone who is out-smarted by the likes of Paris Hilton needs to do some SERIOUS self-examination.

          are you for real? She is ALWAY being attact by her liberal cohosts and some guest. I don’t blame her for being the way she is. If you went to work and got attack for your believes you also would act the way she does. The View should change it’s name to the liberal View only show. I don’t mean to be hard but I just can’t take when people attack Elizabeth and say nothing about Joy and what a bully she is. Barbara Walter, I use to love until her liberal side came out. She hired these women and she saids nothing to make it fair and balanced. why would she? She making big buck on this ganging up on Elizabeth.

        • I never got into the View I guess I’ve always worked while it was on. But I hear other radio shows playing clips from it and I don’t feel any of those women on the panel represent most of the women in America.

          Meredith Vieira only seemed to be the one who made the most sense on it and now she is gone.
