Horrible show, I hate Rosie ODonnell and Whoopi Goldberg and the others are of no significance at all. The View needs to be cancelled. They are not entertaining they are just big mouth liberals. Hate hate hate that anyone has to put up with this kind of crap TV. By the way Mario is just stupid.

Keep Whoopi and Nicole… O’Donnell needs to take her large mouth to a show about crafting with her kids…Perez not a talk show host.

Please do all of us a favor and CANCEL “The View!” I have stopped watching and, although Nicolle is probably nice person, her constant cackling laugh is like nails on a blackboard. She has a shrill voice that causes me to turn the sound off when she is speaking (or should I say constantly talking over others).

I love Rosie odonell the best thing on the view

I personally, am enjoying it more this season than many others in the past. Even though Rosie O’Donnell can be very opinionated, isn’t that what the show is about? I think overall they are more entertaining and funny than when Barbara was on there, and Joy, who I found much more overbearing than Rosie could ever be. So, I hope it stays on, because I just think this season works, warts and all.

I’ve watched The View from its beginning. Its not interesting any more and I’ve finely started changing the channel. Put it to bed, its jumped the shark.

Should have been cancelled long time ago. Unfortunately when Joy and Sherri bailed that was the end. Whoopie is great and she has tried to carry it, but for me bring Rosie ODonnell on was the death knell I stopped watching it then.

I agree. Rosie has to many personal demons


Frank February 9, 2014 at 10:37 am

Hiring Jenny McCarthy was their biggest mistake. She adds nothing to the show.

“To the ladies of the view,just to let you know you all have done grate job on the view,i have watch the view every morning you all are grate,now i have seeing where your ordnance get that lovely handbag,and i am a fans of nice handbags and shoes do i get my handbag as a TV viewer of the view.”

This is a perfect example of the mentality that watches The View! You would have to be illiterate and a dumbass Liberal to watch such trash. It should be cancelled, or renamed “The Biased” Who cares what their View is? They are all a bunch of rich elitists who haven’t got a clue and the sheople watch this crap while drinking the Koolaid!
Give her a handbag and she’ll keep watching. OMG!

Lady/Man, you would have had to watch The View in order to know what was going on, or to think it was trash. Why so critical? Everyone has different tastes, watch what you want and leave others to watch what they want. That is why there are more than one channel being televised.


Julie January 20, 2015 at 3:33 pm

Please my dear, it is GREAT. GRATE is a part of a fireplace. I am sorry, but please, look it up before you use a word.

I use to enjoy watching The View. It seems that lately they have lost their innocence in conversation. Now each of them seems to have an answer ready for what the other is saying. There is also a power thing going on. If you watch at the beginning when they walk out there is ALWAYS a certain order. Very childish. I use to like Joy a lot. She is still a little entertaining but sometimes annoying. Whoopie needs to move to another type of show. Sherri is good on game shows. Elisabeth also needs a different venue. And Barbara could use that retirement. It is time to clean house and start a whole new View. Somethings run their course.
