Whoopi Goldberg becomes lone host on 'The View' after ABC's surprise firings
NY Daily News ^ | 6/26/14 | Don Kaplan

A stunning housecleaning at “The View” has left Whoopi Goldberg driving solo and looking in the rearview mirror at her canned co-hosts.

ABC officials said Thursday night big changes were coming to the show, and soon afterward Sherrie Shepherd and Jenny McCarthy took to social media to confirm they were leaving the morning talkfest.

Wow. How “The View” could think that a hagged out ugly racist bigot like Whoopi could anchor a program is beyond me.

It does, however, confirm to me that they are going for the daytime demographic, those minority women sitting home on entitlements, out at the hair salon, or out on an EBT run whilst their DVRs are recording more rants from Whoopi about how downtrodden they are.

One wonders what their advertising lineup is going to morph into.

‘View’ you can’t believe in’.

The View, Oprah, and Ellen shows are proof women shouldn’t be allowed to vote.

Daytime tv is the trashiest of the trash. I wouldn't care if the View, Dr. Oz, Maury and the like disappeared.

Let's try to guess!

Margaret Cho, another black one, (It doesn't matter who, exactly, they all THINK alike) A Kardashole, Lena Dunham, and one, maybe two ugly dog libs from Fox, MSNBC or CNN.

There are some things you just don’t want to be around, I can think of several things I would distance myself from...sometimes because of odor, sometimes visual. Whoops falls in such a category. Why would anyone want to spend every morning in her presence?

Whoopi is important to the show. The hours that this show are programmed are the ones where most people are working except those that are on public assistance or are without a job. That demographic is who ABC is going after so Whoopi is important.

Agents Hall of Fame! I’m going to rent a storefront in Wilkes-Barre and start it — a place to celebrate entertainment agents who are able to foist talentless, unappealing weirdos on the entertainment industry. Whoopi’s agent will be a charter member.

It couldn’t happen to a nicer bunch of liberals. Is fit me, or does it seem that so many who trashed Sarah Palin are now out of their gigs and looking for work? The Bible says - “vengeance is mine, I will repay saith the Lord.” Could this be part of His vengeance against these yapping females - including Katie Couric? Makes me wonder.

For those of you who have not seen “The View”, Whoopi sits on the couch like a Fat Kermit the Frog, her body covered with a white morgue sheet, with her legs spread like there is an invisible tumor, the size of an exercise ball, growing somewhere between her knees and her hips. Sometimes she wears an American Flag that has been soaked in coffee instead of the morgue sheet.
If I wanted to really disgust you, I would have describe her face; and to listen and report what she says.

It is such a national tragedy that so many American women buy into this socialist/communist propaganda, that anything on this show is reported as news.

People ask these days what's causing the society to become so course/rough.
Displaying people like Whoopi on TV as normal is one cause.

Personally I think it should go back to landowners (men and women) - 160 acres minimum.

And I know a lot more stupid liberal men than stupid liberal women.

Now be a good sexist pig and eat your slop.

The local workers at K-Mart, physical therapy etc. (working class white women) watch The View too. It’s on in the employee lounges. They like Whoopi.

Turns out that Ms. Shepard and Ms. McCarthy are two of the least-liked personalities on TV; after seven years at ABC, Shepard has a “Q” (likability) rating of 7 (the higher the number, the better), while McCarthy, who has been on the show for just a year, has an 8.

Incidentally, Whoopi Goldberg has a Q score of 24 (which defies explanation), but she’s far more popular than her just-fired co-hosts. By comparison, the celebrity/personality who typically tops the Q ratings index is Tom Hanks, who usually scores in the mid-50s.

Here’s a listing of all the daytime hosts and their Q scores: http://www.thewrap.com/q-scores-daytime-talk-show-ellen-degeneres-wendy-williams-oprah-dr-phil-barbara-walters/30/

So, in other words, ABC is going to re-make the show around the “most popular” host on the show, who is still disliked by most of the viewing public. Yeah, that sounds like a plan.

One more thing: Bill Geddie, the departing executive producer, co-owned the show, along with Barbara Walters. I haven’t watched the show in at least 10 years, so I have no idea if the program is still produced by their production company. I’m guessing that ABC bought them out when Barbara retired, leaving Geddie as just another employee. So, with the network in charge, they can clean house, without having to worry about sharing the profits with a retired host and fired executive producer.

The View’s biggest problem is that it airs (in many markets) opposite “The Price is Right,” which has been the #1 show in daytime TV for longer than I can remember. ABC thinks it can get more women to watch Whoopi complain about Republicans and tea partiers, but the truth is, more female viewers would rather see someone win a lot of cash and prizes on TPIR.

Or Chelsea. Maybe they could woo her away from NBC by paying her a livable wage and reducing her workload.

I met Whoopi at the Big Kitchen in San Diego. The owners would hire actors to work there, they were big art supporters, who were in town performing. This was 35+ years ago when Whoopi was a nobody.

She was a dishwasher and came to the counter to collect my dirty plate. She never said a word but pantomimed “are you finished ... can I take your plate”? She had that horse face smile and dreadlocks even back then.

Heinlein had a better idea....government military service to get a franchise to vote!

Still I own property and get taxed on that and my vehicles...I don’t own 160 acres but I still pay property and real estate taxes. The taxation issue is the reason I should be able to vote. Levy state and fed taxes on me without my ability to vote on who is levying the taxes and watch how quickly I get revolutionary in spirit and action.

Yes, especially since we most likely would not have elected FUBO had the female vote percentages been somewhere near those of their male counterparts.
Sad to say, today, but single women allow themselves to be “used” by men, and then when they have to raise their illegitimate children on their own, they turn to the left to provide for them. A sad commentary on both sexes.

Here's a sure hit. It's called "The Paul and Paula Show."

It stars Paul Reubens and Paula Poundstone. It's a family chat show.
