It was made official this morning by ABC, and brought to light by Deadline.com yesterday that the search is over for the women that will comprise the new panel of the revamped The View set to premiere on Monday, September 15th (11AMEST)!

Joining moderators Whoopi Goldberg and Rosie O’Donnell will be Do the Right Thing actress Rosie Perez and political commentator Nicolle Wallace. They who won the spots after a search for the ladies to round out the panel upon the exits of Sherri Shepherd and Jenny McCarthy.

The new EP of The View Bill Wolff said of the hires: “These are powerful and accomplished women from different walks of life who have had amazing personal and professional experiences. Each brings incredible perspective and information to the table. This mix of smart, vibrant and energetic women is unlike anything else on daytime television.”

“I am beyond thrilled, honored and completely surprised that I’ve been asked to join The View,” said Perez.  “Knowing that I’ll be in the company of Whoopi, Rosie and Nicolle, three very smart and engaging women that I have an immense amount of respect for, makes it even more unbelievable.  The opportunity to connect with our nation’s audience on a daily basis… icing on the cake! Very happy.”

“I am honored to join the tradition of compelling conversations that has been the signature of The View for the better part of two decades,” said Wallace. “I have watched The View for many years and now to be seated alongside three women that I have admired is both humbling and incredibly exciting.”

So what do you think of a panel consisting of Whoopi, Rosie and Rosie, and Nicolle? Does it interest you more than in recent years … or not at all?  Weigh-in!

Here because we like Soaps, not talk show trash. BIG ANNOUNCEMENT is “Did we hit the lowest common denominator”???

Personally, I would love to see a panel consisting of Lindsay Lohan, Miss New York from Flavor of Love, Theresa Guidice and Honey Boo Boo’s Mom.

It never interested me…a group of catty women who talk over each other and their guests…arguing over whose beliefs and opinions are better…no thank you!!!

I heard for a while they were considering adding a male to the panel…I guess no guy wanted to sign up that HELL… LOL! Seriously can you even imagine?

Rosie isn’t that common of a name, so to end up having two of them on one panel– what are the chances of that? LOL.

I think there is nothing wrong with these choices, but I do feel the format itself is running it’s course. It wouldn’t matter who they chose because I think viewers are losing interest. Frankly I believe daytime talk needs an new angle to keep the genre vibrant. The Talk was that new angle when it first debut, but after all these years and copycats that have pop up it is time to find a new way of talking in daytime.

I hadn’t thought of that, Mary. Two Roses? I guess that beats having two Thorns.

I will be tuning in :

Whoopie
Rosie O
Rosie Perez

and I don’t know the Nicole Wallace

I had hoped the 4th person joining the celebrated panel… would be… Jennifer Tilly

I still hope this…. should Nicole Wallace not work out

would be an AMAZING time… well spent

I thought Brooke Shields might have been a good choice.
This might be promising–maybe I will give The View another chance. I have not seen it in years.

Nicole Wallace worked for George W. Bush. So she seems to be the “republican” of the group.

I will still watch the view, but the ratings better increase or the view will be cancelled. Rosie Perez will be great on the view. Good luck ladies, you will need it.

I will be SHOCKED if that show lasts more than this season. It was terrible before Barbara left the show, and even with her clout and professionalism, she couldn’t carry it any longer. Out of curiosity, people will tune in just to check it out….for a while.

The show literally gave me a headache… women screaming over one another, many times over nonsense. The mere fact that TPTB wanted Rosie O back only means one thing…they are only looking for ratings and will do anything to draw an audience. Perhaps during November sweeps they can ask D Trump in as a guest so he and Rosie O can tear into one another… just disgraceful and embarrassing.

I cannot imagine, under any conditions, that Barbara W is proud of what this show has become. Nicolle Wallace, a very sharp conservative commentator, must never have seen this show if she thinks it has intelligent compelling conversations, she is in for a real shock! It may be a career killer for her in the end.

LOL… it’s saying something when people would prefer watching Hoda & Kathlee Lee and their nonsense over the View.

errrrrr…I kinda like Hoda and Kathy Lee…they’re a fun, good-natured team…sometimes catch em at 2am when they replay what aired during the day.

I WOULDN’T WATCH THIS SHOW IF IT WAS THE ONLY SHOW ON.Doesn’t matter who is coming on.

TRUST ME…if this WERE the only show on … You me and the whole of AMERICA would be watching…DAILY…for lack of anything else…so…that’s actually quite silly to say under any circumstance. Geez..it’s just a group of women on TV stating opinions..trying to be heard..and interviewing all sorts of people. But rest assured your capitalized statement was heard by someone…now breathe in…holddddd…release…go on with your day.

You go ROSIE PEREZ…you deserve it. This lady has fought for recognition her whole career in a crowded field of actresses…glad you get to shine on The View..CAN’T WAIT….

Rosie Perez has made a number of appearances on public radio and is very deep and impressive, she doesn’t even use her “character” voice, I bet she will be a pleasant surprise. Whoopie and Rosie O are legends, I think one very young woman would have been cool to add to the panel…Ms. Wallace has a conservative vibe–fine–but some fine-tuning is still needed so we can tune in with the joy THE TALK is now bringing!

Shelly

Ugh Count me Out! I quit watching a Long time ago when Joy was there with her nasty mouth. I Can’t Stand Rosie Odonnel so no way will I watch it now!

No interest in previous seasons, no interest now. Women talking trash with no intelligent viewpoint. Typical Talk Show.

ABC Officially Picks Up ‘Roseanne’ Spinoff, ‘The Conners’ With No Roseanne Barr Participation

Word on late Thursday afternoon is that ABC has now officially moved forward and gave a pick-up to the Roseanne spinoff series, The Conners.   

As viewers know, there had been speculation that the series would revolve around Sara Gilbert’s character of Darlene, but now the other concept with the entire family in the title is the direction the new series will go (although it is said to be the “working title” of the series.)

The Conners received a ten episode order and will make the fall TV schedule, and will reside on Tuesday night’s on ABC at 8PM.

Roseanne Barr’s controversial tweets led to the network’s swift decision to cancel her series.

In the new deal, Barr will have no financial or creative involvement in The Conners after reaching a settlement with series producer, Tom Werner.

The Conners will feature the rest of the Roseanne core cast including: John Goodman, Laurie Metcalf, Sara Gilbert, Lecy Goranson, and Michael Fishman.

According to Deadline:  It is unclear how exactly Barr’s character will be written off but ABC describes it as “a sudden turn of events.”  On the new show, after a sudden turn of events, the Conners are forced to face the daily struggles of life in Lanford in a way they never have before. This iconic family – Dan, Jackie, Darlene, Becky and D.J. – grapples with parenthood, dating, an unexpected pregnancy, financial pressures, aging and in-laws in working-class America. Through it all, the fights, the coupon cutting, the hand-me-downs, the breakdowns – with love, humor and perseverance, the family prevails.

In a statement ABC commented: “The Conners’ stories demonstrate that families can always find common ground through conversation, laughter and love. The spinoff will continue to portray contemporary issues that are as relevant today as they were 30 years ago.”

A major turning point to greenlight the series came when the fact that the new series does not feature Barr’s character Roseanne Conner, which rights to which she is said to maintain, paved the way for an agreement with no Barr.

So, glad to hear The Conners will continue sans Roseanne? Comment below.
