There is trouble on the VIEW—the most annoying show on television I made add, one I only watch when I am sitting in a Jack Williams waiting room or doctor’s office.. Nonetheless, many people watch it. And the studio audience shrieks like wild hyenas daily.
The latest bit of gossip that, in the end I don’t care much about, is this: Whoopi and Rosie are involved in quite the back stage feud since O’Donnell returned to co-host the show.. Along with that feud: Bad ratings for the program.. Now the rumor mill churns: Maybe a nationwide search for a new host once Rosie gets fired, something insiders claim is coming..
I have a major problem with the VIEW.. The few times I have watched it, the entertainment value was less than enjoyable—yes, I suppose I did not ‘enjoy the view’ as the hosts admonish us to do daily.. But even more, the dumbed-down type of information spewing is the worst. The women are opinionated.. but the news that is offered is a shell of reality. We are treated to talking points from some less than revolutionary thinkers. I highly doubt that these women showcase any of the realities of what women really think on any issues.. Instead, ABC’s version of the news is to splash in George Clooney along with watered down factoids.
There are very serious women who are journalists.. Lisa Ling would be a fine addition to the program. If you want to get political, team up someone like Ann Coulter and Janeane Garofalo .. that would be a view worth watching..
Instead we are subjected to Rosie O’Donnell and other leftover spoils from the 20th century.
And finally, on this matter, I think I am team Whoopi. As a matter of fact, I think a Whoopi only show would work quite well, to be honest..
