    Same here, I stopped recording it, because I just deleted it

    Re: The View

    I still record it, but I watch it less and less. It used to be that if I had time to sit down and watch the shows I record each day, The View would always be the first one I watched. Now, it's my "well there's nothing else to watch" show unless there is a guest I really want to see. Barbara and her total infatuation with herself gets on my nerve, but that's always been there. I think the bigger problem to me is that all the women seem sick of each other. It's like they've had the same discussions so many times that they can now predict exactly what each other woman is going to say. THey start arguing a point that they expect to be made. It's just boring. I do think it can be turned around with some new blood once Joy is gone. And I hate to say it, but I think the show would benefit if Whoopi moved on too. I think half the problem is that she seems so bored doing the show that the audience can't help but follow her lead and be bored watching her do it.

    Watched for the first time in a while. Annoyed at:
    * Whoopie reading directly from the cue cards. By now she should be able to wing it and just speak.
    * I'm tired of Beyonce. And of course Sherri has to bring her up.
    * They are now posting tweets at the bottom of the screen.

    This after just 8 minutes of the show. I'm glad Babs isn't there. I do like Mindy, based on her book, which I thought was fun and funny [and a good book gift to a niece], but haven't watched any of her shows.

    I didn't like Beyonce's outfit, but I am a definite Beyonce fan! Sherri should realize that she would look foolish in those boots! Too short!

    Re: The View

    I watched the Sonia Sotomayor interview last night, since it had been mentioned as good in this thread. A couple of things really annoyed me about it. First it bothers me when someone who has not mastered the Spanish languauge tries to say certain words with a Hispanic accent. Barbara should have just said Sotomayor with an American accent. Second, several of the women have started chiming in with agreement saying "mmm hmm" and similar sounds when a guest is speaking. It really really annoys me. The words of the guest, especially a respected guest like a Supreme Court Justice, can stand on their own. When Sherri or Joy starts mmm hmm-ing, it's like they are injecting themselves in the thought. I don't like it.

    The funniest thing about this particular signature is that by the time you realise it doesn't say anything it's too late to stop reading it.

    It's being reported in so many places that I wonder if she's not going to call it off again because she didn't get to break the news.

    Barbara just said that she wanted to leave before people started asking, "Why doesn't she leave?"
    Sister, that ship sailed a LONG TIME AGO!!!

    This is going to be one long year.
