I have watched The View since the beginning but with this new group of cohosts I have stopped watching and so have many other people I know. We used to talk about what had been discussed on the show, interesting opinions or articles in the world and relevant subjects that were intelligent and/or humorous. Now they discuss farts, sex (way too much), and the endless talk of “woman power” and the need for more diversity to ad nauseam. Rosie P is not a talk show host. Its painful to try to listen to her spit out her thoughts. Nicolle at least has knowledgeable opinions but that voice! Whoopi has changed from the first year. There are so many important and interesting subjects yet its the same garbage all the time. Bring back the former hosts that bought something worthwhile to the show, the Lisa Lings, the Merediths, the Joys, people that could have a debate of subjects and opinions that were of interest. Bring in different hosts or cancel the show. Barbara must be shaking her head, if she even watches it anymore.

The show has become a blabbering of fools, on daily topics that are equally foolish. Why do they talk about “The Empire” almost daily basis, not even the same net work? Boring, boring. stupid! Go away an make room for a show worth the airtime.
