    Well, I give up. Been watching The View for over 15 years and today will be the last. This season went downhill after Rosie O left in January and never recovered. Now Nichole and Rosie P won’t be back next season? Count me out in September unless you are lucky enough to get Joy Behar back!

    There is just way too much aggression coming from the liberals on the view & Nicole Wallace sometimes seems to be half afraid to give her true “view” just to prevent the foaming at the mouth from big mouth Rosie Perez. Perez is like a rabbid chihuahua if you have a “view” that opposes her “view” ! I occasionally watch the openining of the show just to see what they are spewing and it never fails, within minutes, I turn it off. I get the feeling that I’m taking a walk through the ghetto of television. No class, all crass !

    For those of you who think the show should be cancelled because you don’t like the host or just the show, than all you have to do is change the channel. “The View” is exactly that The view on different topics from different people. That is what is great about the show. And the host are perfect. Different ethnics, backgrounds and different ideas. Besides talking about serious subjects there is also some humor. And lets not forget about the guest they have on.

      Thank you. I love this show, it’s lasted because it’s current, fun, serious at time and informative. I want and love the diverse hosts and am glad there is always a chance to hear different points of VIEW, ! Thank you all, who watch and love this show, let’s keep it on the air!

    I do agree the View has gone downhill. I have watched it off and on since the beginning. It is so liberal now that there is only one view. And to be co-hosts the “uhs” and “you know what I’m saying” fillers are horrible. And now I cannot watch and listen to people eating as they talk!
    And they obviously do not care what the viewers think as they keep telling us that. So, as others have stated, I will change the channel.

    I used to plan my day around the View, now I don’t care about t

    Every show has a shelf life. When the show began it was unique, and Meredith Vieira was the ideal (sane) shepherd for the fun, interesting, and intelligent group of women who were on the show during those earlier years. The show has since lost its way, and frankly, I question the ability of most of these women to speak intelligently about the topics of the day. Nicolle Wallace has been a huge disappointment, as she has chosen too often to bite her tongue and go along to get along (and, as a Democrat, that is something for me to say). What once made the show interesting to watch was the exchange of DIFFERENT opinions.
