    We should all know by now, TV exec’s can never leave well enough alone and public opinion means little. Nicole, I hope where ever you go next, it will be where we can all continue to enjoy the intelligence and fairness of your “views”.

    The View has been on for a very long time. I have watched this program forever. However
    I find this to be disturbing ~ the slandering of Donald Trump! I am a proud Canadian and find you’re politics are one centered on Donald Trump, whom I think will be the greatest President for the USA.
    As you have commented on the show ~ there are many more runners in the Presidential running, so “view” your comments on them perhaps and stop the DOWNSIDE of Mr. Trump!!!
    Could be the BEST VIEW of all. Glad to be Canadian.

    This is not a personal attack. I just wonder what person is in charge of intelligent moves as far as the show goes. I think that is the one that needs firing instead of Nicole.
    She is the best thing going on the show . I will stop viewing the View when she is no longer a part of it! Really dumb. You should rethink this stupid move and get on your knees and plead for her forgiveness!

    I have watched every show from day 1. This season was the worst. I too, found that I taped it and fast forwarded through most of it. Most shows took about 15 min to watch. Nicole Wallace was a breath of fresh air. Without her, I would have quit already. She is going and so am I.

    Nicole… were loved. I hope you land somewhere where we can see you more. What a loss to The View. Who is making these lame decisions? Ask the viewers what works….Duh!

    I just don’t understand what you are doing to this show. Nicole, you have to be kidding.
    I am not a Republican but I like her. She is fair and not pushey in her comments about
    the Republican Party. We have all learned something from her. She is a breathe of fresh
    air. One of your bigger mistakes. I will also miss Rosie. What a great lady in so many
    ways. I learned a lot about her and so many other topics she has exposed me to.
    I will wish her well and hope she was leaving on her terms not ABC.

    I don’t know how long Whoopie will take this. She is a wonderful,wonderful person
    and is a pleasure to watch. She should get her own TV show and leave ABC and have
    who she wants on and has control of what will be talked about.

    And I am sorry to hear that Sheri Sheppard is returning. She has nothing to add to
    this show. She has said a few things about the View since she left and I
    can’t believe you are asking her back. Most important is her personal life. And not
    taking responsibility of the surrogate child that she and her husband (now ex) I guess.
    The whole mess tells me a lot about her. And I’m surprised you want her back.

    Hope the show can stay on the air. Would like to see Raven grow up a little.
    Can’t believe she is 30. I know you want a younger audience but you could
    have made a better choice when it came to her.

    Good luck for next season. I think it will be the last.

    Whoopie can’t carry this by herself!!!! I have loved The View since day one but am now finding I DVR it and fast forward thru most of it. You lost two gems in Nicole and Rosie…they were so knowledgeable about current topics and challenged us to think!!!!

  8. Irene says

    I not going to watch this show any longer. When you let go Nicolle Wallace that is the last straw. Michelle nor Raven do not hold a candle to Nicolle. Nicolle is classy, intelligent and fair minded person. I am not a republican, but I love her. Raven did not stay in school long enough. Some of the things she says .. well she should sue her brain for lack of support. I love Whoppi, but when you keep letting go someone who is knowledgeable enough to ask the right questions to the people from all walks of life…well I do not want to watch any longer since you dumbed down the show. It is turning into another Jerry Springer show.

    Why are you taking Nicolle Wallace off! She is the reason of sanity in the republican party. I loved listening to her view even though are views were mostly opposite. She was always respectful of everyone. This show is not being fair or right

    • says

      Great insight Susan I totally agree with you. Nicolle Wallace carries the View (as well ~ I do respect Whoppie, far too beyond The View). The disrespect they are showing Nicolle is far beyond Fair and I only hope she finds another point of view all on her own. She will be dully

  10. P Kowalczyk says

    I love Whoopi but without Nicolle Wallace and Rosie Perez, who are smart
    enough to listen to their opinions is going to be missed. I realize Rosie left on her
    own but Nicolle needed to stay, she has class which the show needs. the 2 you
    have now with Whoopi are terrible. Get some class

  11. A says

    This show has changed, I have always been a fan of Whoppi, but she has even changed.
    What happened to reporting news and being a bias person, even teachers in public schools were bias once upon a time. Great to give all sides to a story, but now we know if your not a certain way or with the popular choice people are taken down and it really sucks, can anyone go back to the real reporting and fun type of hosting duties ? I highly doubt it, the show has lost my interest and a lot of other people’s interest. Time to move forward

  12. Jeannie Jackson says

    With Nicole leaving, I’m no longer interested in The View. While I love Whoppi, I’m still leaving w/o Nicole.

  13. Anonymous says

    Sad this show has turned this way. Really liked Nicolle Wallace she was classy and intelligent.
    Now she’s being replaced by loud mouth Michelle Collins, who thinks she’s funny! Please Please cancel this show!!!!!!!!

  14. Waunita C. Smith says
