All New THE VIEW Premieres Monday! Will Rosie, Rosie, Nicolle and Whoopi Click With The Audience?

The revamped and retooled The View has its season premiere on Monday morning, September 15th,  on ABC.  With a new executive producer in tow, a new studio home, a new look, and a brand new mash-up of co-hosts, can The View return to glory and enchant the viewers?

Whoopi Goldberg is the only remaining co-host from last season, and she will be joined by the returning Rosie O’Donnell, and first time panelists; Rosie Perez and Nicolle Wallace!  Just the other day the first group photo of the new The View gals was released (pictured here).

As well in some recent electronic press interviews, O’Donnell revealed one of her reasons to returning to the fold: “What drew me back was the opportunity to work with Whoopi Goldberg.  I have admired her since I saw her in her first one-woman show, back when we were both younger and less gray.”  Rosie also offered up  who’s trulu the brains of the new panel: “Nicolle is much smarter I ever will be.  She probably would kick my ass on the SATs.”

Nicolle Wallace offered up: “I’d love to hear what my co-hosts think about this country maybe having to do something to protect ourselves from these new terrorists Isis.  I think people want to hear what Rosie O’Donnell and Whoopi Goldberg and Rosie Perez think about things.”

So are you interested in hearing what the four ladies have to say about numerous topics each morning? Do you think this configuration will be a success?   Are you going to check the revamped line-up? Let us know!

lol!!!
yuck!
I have watched the view for about 10 minutes at different times..
It is noisy lol … they just talk about nonsense stuff.. ..
It was a bit horrible when they all laugh once at at each other.. LOUD!
I do not like it .. It is meaningless ..

I’m sure others enjoy it, but not for me ..

Rosie looks great! I will give it a chance as I have not watched this show in years.

This show is heading down the tubes and lost its freshness long ago. It seems like this is sort of a last ditch effort to save it. Honestly, how many times can the panelists, who always talk at the same time over each other, be changed on this show before most people are turned off of it?

Rosie O’Donnell, again? No thanks. I couldn’t care less what that overbearing loudmouth thinks about anything. She wore out her welcome years ago on her former daytime talk show.

Agreed – she’s totally obnoxious –
this show has had it – if ABC had half a brain they would bring back
a combo of ONE LIFE TO LIVE with overtones of ALL MY CHILDREN –
That’s what they should do, not this crap –

Why on earth they would rehire Rosie O’Donnell is beyond me! The way she acted in that infamous show of her argument with Elisabeth Hasselbeck should have closed the View door to any return ever! I also expect her to butt heads with Whoopie. When Rosie was on previously, she was the moderator (in control of the conversation); she won’t want to take a backseat to Whoopie. I’m no fan of Whoopie either. Whoopie always makes sure Whoopie gets her points across and routinely cuts off the other panelists, particularly if they disagree with her. Whoopie also loves to play… Read more »

The way Rosie acted? Listen, it’s TPTB from ABC who split the screen who are the real culprits here. They exploited the heck out of the fight between those two women while playing it for it is worth. Rosie is great, she looks great after losing the weight and today she seemed like she was trying real hard to tone it down. Whoopi also looked great and is always a sight for sore eyes. They paid a very touching homage to Joan Rivers and spoke of Robin Williams. I don’t watch The View but will try and tune in from… Read more »

Hi, James. I get what you are saying, but everyone deserves a second chance. As you have indicated, O’Donnell had a ‘beef’ with Elizabeth. They never did mesh. I like Rosie O and also like Rosie P. So, it remains to be seen…I hope it is all for the good. I am beyond happy to see Whoopi stay put. I love her so much…what a delight to listen to her no-nonsense comments….she is both honest and diplomatic…..and, lest I forget; her humor never gets old or mundane. If anyone can keep order in ‘the court’ that is the view, it… Read more »

The View is so bland now. Hot topics is so annoying, it sounds like a public service announcement.

They’re just trying out their sea legs, Lou. It felt a little awkward but they’ll get there.
I think Whoopi is very sad about losing her very dear friend Robin Williams and she is just trying to hold it together. It can’t be easy for her.

CeeCee

Bland? Is that why a certain ‘TALK’ show mimics it?…. Down to the number of hosts (originally 5) to sitting at ‘THE’ table.
At least, there is always one panelist with a little more education than the school of Black Sabbath.

These talk shows are full of narcissistic hypocrites who pretend their behavior and lives are much fuller and honest than the people they’re gossiping about. I’ll stick with Oprah, at least I know she’s coming from a good place.

The only place Oprah comes from is narcissism. She’s the worst of them all.

tyler

Oprah is an open book and far from narcissistic. There’s nothing wrong with having pride in your accomplishments, she went from nothing to a self made billionaire without stepping on any toes and she has always treated people with the upmost respect. These talk shows, news shows and radio shows believe humiliating people, gossiping, talking over one another and making assumptions about someone’s personal life based on tabloid rumors is entertainment.

CeeCee

Tyler…it is called entertainment…some of us like it, some of us don ‘t. That ‘s not to say I don’t miss Oprah…I love her to the hilt. But, she’s one of a kind and she is hard to compare to any other. There are a chosen few in this world….she is one of them.
I LOVE THE VIEW. By the same token, you are entitled to your opinion……let’s not call the kettle black….who is narcissistic ?

Well I just finished watching it, as I taped it only for curiosity… it was dull and boring. A lot of forced happy smiles… I absolutely cannot imagine this show going past this year. They called it the new view, and the craziest thing was it opened by kissing Barbara Walters hand as she was seated in a throne, as the Queen. It was absolutely ridiculous! Whoopis face during that was hilarious, you gotta watch that just for the laugh! Can you even imagine? LOL! ABC better get ready to find another replacement. On another note, I also taped the… Read more »

they need to get hack to the around the table… like adults and talk it out that seating setup was too much posturing…. staid… polite… and formal I don’t expect to see cat fights….. all the producers have to do is watch the talk.. and get that their 4 personalities manage quite well around the table in a close knit fit Whoopie, Rose P., and Rosie O… have wonderful personalities to share…. just cut to the chase and leap forward I also thought the set was too bright and colorful… if that’s the case… go with it…. enliven spar… shared… Read more »

I like The Talk. That’s an example of four women with sometimes differing opinions/perspectives who manage to discuss it while being fun, funny and entertaining. For the most part a very feel-good show.

By contrast, I detested The View…opinionated, judemental, sometimes racist, sometimes anti-semitic…very combative.

Why is this story even on this soap related website. I don’t care…

BUT — it would have been nice if ABC would have spent actual advertising dollars on the soaps. Maybe the audience wouldn’t have disappeared.. Just wish this show would vanish…

As mentioned above I watched The View on off hours years ago. Started off good…degenerated quickly. I tuned in to see the new panel and for me, it’s not working. It’s uncomfortable…they’re trying so hard to not argue that it’s awkward. However, I saw a glimpse of what’s to come and I don’t like it. Example: The woman with the Republican point of view, Nicole Wallace, said she felt Joe Biden worked well with others because he genuinely liked people. Obama didn’t work well with others because she feels he doesn’t like people. Rosie O’Donnell’s response? (And I’m paraphrasing…) “So… Read more »

It is just as bad when a certain panelist on THE TALK makes cultural slurs against Italians. My mother-in-law, who is Italian-born was so upset, she called the network in California. Of course, nothing was done about it because Julie Chen’s husband is the producer of that show. I live in Suffolk County, NY….which includes Southampton…..a lot of gossip circulates in these small communities.I had already stopped watching when Leah Remini and Holly Robinson were fired…..two reasons why I started watching in the first place….all because of behind-the-scenes politics. My point? It is the same anywhere and everywhere. I have… Read more »

I turned off Whoopi on several occasions: one when she resented non smokers having a problem with her smoking in her apartment building. I can tell you…smoke travels. She was quite selfish about it…also didn’t like the fact that smokers couldn’t smoke in restaurants, etc. I am ADAMANTLY against smoking…and I thought it was great when the law went into effect that smokers couldn’t smoke in the workplace, restaurants, bars, etc. It is the right of people to breathe healthy air; if smokers want to inhale cancer-causing substances they should gather together and live in the same building, go to… Read more »

Of course I agree with you, rebecca. No one in my family smokes. Well, I need to back up……my sister and her husband started puffing on these ‘fake’ things….drives me up the wall….not cool. So, I understand, albeit Whoopi has stopped smoking, or so she says. She makes me laugh, and honestly I needed that….I went to hell and back during my pregnancy…I thank God for a healthy baby. The other stuff, I seem to be oblivious to it. I have never heard Whoopi support Mel Gibson…..surprising, since I think he’s not all there. I did not watch much TV… Read more »

Hi CeeCee…so funny running into you “here” instead of over “there.” LOL! So sorry you had a difficult pregnancy and congratulations on your baby! I’m surprised at your impressions of The Talk. I didn’t notice anything offensive…but we all notice different things depending on our sensitivities. As for Mrs. O…I do believe you can say whatever you want about Sharon…I won’t tell. 😉 I find her very blunt, crude yet entertaining. She’s also a hypocrite. I remember how she made dreadful fun of Susan Boyle. Do you know who she is? She won Britain’s Got Talent…very beautiful opera-type voice but… Read more »

Thank you, Rebecca1! In regard to Whoopi and her eye-rolling looks of disgust, my friends thought I was exaggerating. Some of it was during interviews on the couch w/guests as well, which is double rude. I couldn’t find anything wrong w/Sherri or Jenny’so line of questioning or conversations w/guests, I concluded it might be a control for individual air -time, a power trip, or backstage chaos. For years now the tension between the hosts on that set has seemed so palpable to me. Yikes! That must such for the guests. Meredith Vieira and Joy Behar were my favorites. I didn’t… Read more »

Hi Laurie. You’re welcome! LOL…I don’t know how your friends could have missed the eye rolling (if they watched the show)…she did it every episode! Have to disagree with you though on Sherri and Jenny…and don’t even get me started on Elizabeth!!! Couldn’t stand any of them. Liked Sherri at the beginning. (Saw her in a few movies as well as DWTS and liked her as an entertainer.) But the more she talked about her religion and her son the more I couldn’t bear her. And anything racial was a very heated topic with her. Jenny? Once you make a… Read more »

Hi rebecca1, 1. RIGHT ON about Meredith Vieira, Lisa Ling and Joy Behar!!!!! Meredith will always be my ALL-TIME FAVE!!!!! 2.

I usually watch it on OWN On-Demand.

Remembering One Life to Live on the 10th Anniversary of its Final Episode on ABC

Today marks the 10th anniversary of the final broadcast of ABC’s One Life to Live. The beloved soap opera was canceled back in April of 2011 along with All My Children, and continued to air till January 13, 2012.

As the story goes, after some false starts, the show wound up in the hands of Prospect Park in an attempted online reboot of the series which lasted some 40 plus episodes, and one season on Hulu in 2013.

Photo: ABC Archives

Agnes Nixon’s brainchild first took to the airwaves back on July 15, 1968 on ABC, and tackled many of the social issues of our time, delivered unforgettable performances, beloved soap on-screen couples, and often humorous and edgy storylines.

When the soap was initially canceled by ABC, we took to our former site to share our thoughts in the piece here back in 2011.

Photo: JPI

At the end of its 43-year-run it was then EP Frank Valentini and head writer Ron Carlivati who took the show to third place in the ratings among six soaps, and delivered a one-two punch of heart, humor, and drama to close out the ABC run of  One Life. (We have posted the final episode below).

Photo: ABC

Through the years the actors who graced the screen were ,and are, some of the all-time great actresses including: Erika Slezak, Robin Strasser, Judith Light, Jessica Tuck, Susan Haskell, and so many more.

Photo: ABC Archives

It also brought us the talented actors including: Al Freeman Jr., Roger Howarth, Trevor St. John, Gerald Anthony, Michael Zaslow, Robert S. Woods, Ryan Phillippe, Nathan Fillion, and the list goes on.

Photo: ABC

Below, rewatch the final episode, and the extremely well-crafted and delivered speech given by the character of Viki on the penultimate episode, how soap operas touch so many lives a la “Fraternity Row” (But, as we all know, the show was speaking directly to the longtime viewers at home about their cancellation!)

Those videos are followed two emotional interviews we conducted on the final press day of ABC’s One Life to Live with Kassie DePaiva and Kristen Alderson, then Hillary B. Smith and Robert S. Woods that we are reposting here.

Now, share your thoughts and remembrances of when you watched the final episodes of One Life to Live, and how you still miss it to this day via the comment section.

Meanwhile, Newman took to his Facebook page and made this statement: “Thanks to everyone for the sweet posts and messages about my joining the cast of Y&R. I couldn’t be more pleased. I’ve had great respect for the show and its wonderful cast for many, many years. I’m happy to be a part of it. I had a lovely zoom meeting with Josh Griffith and Anthony Morina last night. We talked quite a bit about the character, and I’m very excited by the scripts I’m getting so far. I’m scared to death, of course, but I think that’s healthy.  It’ll be a new adventure and I’m feeling pretty blessed to have the opportunity. Cheers”

Look for Robert to make his Y&R debut in February.

So, what are your thoughts of Robert coming to Y&R as the new Ashland Locke, after Richard Burgi departed over the daytime drama’s Covid-19 health and safety protocols? Weigh-in via the comment section below.
