FAQ

How did Barbara think of the original idea for The View and when?

5 out of 7 people found the following review useful.
Sick of the divisiveness..., 4 October 2010
Author: MarieGabrielle from United States

Barbara Walters, when interviewed by Larry King is articulate and interesting. Whoopi is talented and has interesting ideas. Joy is a bit intrusive, but can be entertaining and funny. The reality "Survivor" girl is no talent and placed there to create tension, deliberately.

Why oh why do we need more arguing and hateful TV?. People are sick of it. The news these days is too depressing to even tune in. The popularity of this show is declining. Walters is a talented interviewer, why does she want to be on such an abrasive show that accomplishes nothing.

TV "entertainment" needs to be improved by more astute and talented directors. Personally I am sick of hearing about trash reality TV, Michael Bolton, "DWTS" and other reality trash that will be gone in five years.

Please, ladies don't insult your own intelligence, or the audience. American audiences have had enough.
