I just threw up in my mouth a little.

Hope she won't need to step over any unkempt, dying, homeless people on her way to the studio. Her airplane hangar buddy had a scary story about that.

I don't watch The View so this will not impact me in the least.

Carry on.

OK So Amuse Me: I don't watch The View so this will not impact me in the least.

Carry on.


And that will continue if it's their policy to have terrible people on purpose.

I'm confused. Didn't this already happen?

controversy = ratings
 
2021-09-29 4:38:52 AM  
I was hoping they'd pick LeVar Burton.
 
2021-09-29 4:45:44 AM  
Honestly, I don't understand the animosity..
Meat Loaf looks great!
 
2021-09-29 5:02:09 AM  
Irrelevant clown show does what?
 
2021-09-29 5:29:32 AM  
So, their days of drawing ratings by rigging for 'outrageous controversy' are definitely drawing to a middle?
 
2021-09-29 5:33:12 AM  
I hope everyone looks both ways before crossing the parking lot when she's arriving late to a taping.
 
2021-09-29 5:35:57 AM  
This is great. Maybe it will finally destroy that stupid f*cking show.

It is stupid shows like that which over the last 30 years combined with Fox and talk radio that have made us all violently hate each other. It all sound bites by people who have no f*cking clue what they are talking about. They just have feelings on a subject. And then they all argue about who has the better feelings.

And Americans love a car crash, so they can't turn away.

Please... make it happen. That level of suck will create a void that sucks it to the center of the earth.

NewportBarGuy: And Americans love a car crash, so they can't turn away.


And since this is Kaitlyn Jenner, it will actually be car crashes.
 
2021-09-29 6:37:09 AM  
That show is a confusing car wreck, anyway
 
2021-09-29 7:30:05 AM  
They don't want conversations or even arguments. They want to debase their audience and the entire United States of America. Fark them. Yes, including Whoopi; you know for damn sure she had veto power.
 
2021-09-29 8:20:05 AM  
TV should go back to only broadcasting for a few hours in the evening and signing off by 10pm.

Huh. I didn't think the View could suck anymore than it already did.

I was wrong.
 
2021-09-29 8:27:12 AM  
People outraged by this are like people outraged by the fact that the piece of fresh dog shiat they just picked up ended up covering their hand in shiat. You chose to watch this garbage; just accept the consequences of your mutual stupidity.

VelcroFez: controversy = ratings


Yeah, farkers would prefer an echo chamber, the network wants ad dollars.
 
2021-09-29 9:03:43 AM  
That makes perfect sense.  She is well known for her keen intellect and trenchant insights!
 
2021-09-29 9:07:55 AM  
With any luck she'll get Meghan's hairstylist.

This.

The "are you farking KIDDING me" headline would fit if the guest host was rational, erudite and not hired solely for ratings.

Alphax: OK So Amuse Me: I don't watch The View so this will not impact me in the least.

.

The thing is, they make The View for the kind of people who will actually watch a show like The View.
Take a moment to reflect on just what that implies.
This is the kind of audience that wants to see venomous hags sniping at each other.

If shows about rational, considerate, thoughtful people discussing things like mature grown-ups had any appeal, then there would be shows like that.

In a way, The View could be compared to WWE wrestling. There is enough of an audience for each that both are profitable enough to continue existing. Neither is my thing, but what am I going to do? Tell people to stop liking what I don't like? I enjoy a lot of things that they probably don't, and I wouldn't listen to their put-downs of those either.
 
2021-09-29 9:27:23 AM  
The existing cast is probably most upset about the stark reminder that their celebrity profile is on par with Caitlyn Jenner.
 
2021-09-29 9:32:18 AM  
They have enough intelligent women on the show so they have 1 incredibly stupid woman to be fair and balanced?
 
2021-09-29 9:37:35 AM  
Man we just LOVE making stupid people famous in America.
 
2021-09-29 9:41:30 AM  
We all understand the other co-hosts are vapid ignoramuses as well, right? I don't think Naomi Klein was ever in the running or anything.

I'm sure someone famous for taking tenth place on American Idol is shattered to learn this, though.
 
2021-09-29 9:46:30 AM  
I think it's just the one day, not a permanent co-host gig.

I wouldn't eat it.
 
2021-09-29 9:49:39 AM  
Boy The View's really aiming at a niche market.
 
2021-09-29 9:51:09 AM  
I've never watched an episode.
This guarantees I won't.
 
2021-09-29 9:55:13 AM  
Is The View just a modern Jerry Springer?

HotWingConspiracy: The existing cast is probably most upset about the stark reminder that their celebrity profile is on par with Caitlyn Jenner.


No matter how low Whoopi has sunk, she can always say that she played Celie in The Color Purple.

Caitlyn Jenner's big movie was Can't Stop the Music.
 
2021-09-29 9:58:30 AM  
I have never viewed The View.

However, I must say that this guest host selection sucks two-week-old road kill.
 
2021-09-29 10:07:42 AM  
Eh, her political opinions come off as ill informed and idiotic and she usually crumbles when trying to defend them instead of trying to pull off a sense of false authority by invoking her father like Meghan.

Not going to start watching the show or anything but she's kind of an easy foil to bring up some dumb ass opinion and have the rest of them stomp that opinion into the dirt.

GameSprocket: Is The View just a modern Jerry Springer?


That's ALL daytime TV.
 
2021-09-29 10:12:18 AM  
There's scraping the bottom of the barrel and then there's scraping the bottom of a barrel that's been holding pigshiat.

But 'barrel of pigshiat' does adequately describe Conservative women, imho.

She can't even defend them in a friendly setting.  Check out the clip of her on Hannity, when he's basically having to tell her what a "sanctuary city" is (though, of course, he used the bullshiat Hannity definition of that term) after asking her if she would ban them.

that's about as spot on as it gets.

I used to work for an abc affiliate and had to watch The View every farking day in my office.  You know it's bad when you're relieved to see All My Children finally come on.

This is the reason it can't just be about "liking what I don't like." If you like chocolate and I like vanilla or strawberry, that doesn't damage public discourse. This is not about mere taste, this is about how we have public conversations about things that do matter to people in the USA. Giving train wrecks commentary broadcast network air time because they are discursive and intellectual train wrecks is irresponsible. I'd rather watch 10 hours of old William F. Buckley on Firing Line than 30 minutes of Caitlin Jenner, and I'm a proggy prog.

I would however, happily watch Zombie Buckley curbstomping Caitin Jenner for 10 minutes on pay-per-view. But not broadcast tv, since that would damage public discourse.

My favorite part is how Allegra Hamilton plays both Sister Bernadette and Roxy Monoxide,

Hey now, you leave my 'Cramps' cover band out of this. We're doing great with Allegra Hamilton's "Roxy Monoxide" as our lead singer.
