Rosie O'Donnell Headed Back To The View

The producers of The View have had some bad ideas in the past, but bringing back Rosie O'Donnell is one of the worst. They tried this experiment before and it was horrible. Yes, Elisabeth Hasselbeck was on the show and a constant foil for Rosie, but no one wants to spend their mornings watching someone put down every morning. Gone is the Rosie from the early days of her talk show when she was fun and light and people loved her. Now it seems like she always has to be the leader and she has never worked well in a group. A show like this works best when everyone gets along and can banter and keep things light. I am all for discussions that are highly charged but do they have a place when people are getting ready for work? Save it for late night when talking heads try and scare you into watching them and fearing for your life if you walk out the door. This already failed once and a year from now the show will be a disaster and The View will wonder why they have dropped so far from their heights.

Yay i can continue not watching!

derek harvey said...

how pathetic that she has come crawling back with her tail between her legs and even more pathetic that they asked her back.
I hate Donald Trump but love when he bullies her
"Rosie your a LOSER!"

TalksTooMuch said...

I'm no fan of Rosie or The View but this seems like an odd direction

LottaColada said...

You're buggin, enties! Their ratings were high back then because people wanted to see all the drama.

I also heard the name Sarah Palin floating around.

Omar Little said...

Who watches this crap?

Missyrocks53 said...

She might be OK, I don't know. I don't think I'd say she's going to be a disaster. The one they need to bring back without question is Joy. She left and the show tanked. She was sharp and funny as hell. She kept the pace going and these other ones on there are like a lead balloon. They never should've gotten rid of her. That's why the ratings tanked, the show is barely watchable now with this group. They should've also gotten rid of Whoopi, who always seems annoyed to be there and never wants to ask any questions of guests she feels are tabloidy.

NaughtyNurse said...

Bad, bad, bad, bad choice. Glad I don't watch the show. Sarah Palin would be a much better choice. I still wouldn't watch the show, mind you, but...

QueenAnne Guido said...

Morning, gang. Maybe she'll hang upside down for the entire hour.

LottaColada said...

@Omar- retirees.

Renoblondee said...

Not me.

Sarah said...

Rosie is loud and unlikeable. I don't want to watch her argue and talk over people to make her points

Sunshine said...

Remember what the Dormouse said, "Feed you head. Feed your head."

Rose Lizenberg said...

Also, who gets ready for work while The View is on?? Doesn't it air at like 10am? Most people are AT work by that hour, Enty.

MISCH said...

Who actually watches ?

auntliddy said...

Lotta – retired-don't watch it.

derek harvey said...

I don't watch the show either but I agree they need another conservative person for drama etc...

auntliddy said...

Maybe people tape it. I think they just having her back to gain some interesting ratings til probably find the real people they want to fill in the empty spaces.

TalksTooMuch said...

Derek, I will bow to your instincts for drama creation.

TalksTooMuch said...

Morning, Gweeds!

TalksTooMuch said...

Someone once said they watch it at the dentist. That seems about right

Sugar said...

Koosh Balls for everyone!!!

Omar Little said...

Congrats, auntliddy. I hope to be there someday. Starting to think its a pipe dream.

The Real Dragon said...

I hope her and woopie go at it

derek harvey said...

@Sugar---lol!!!

Sugar said...

I like your new avi, derek. Did Enty ever post your pic?

LottaColada said...

@auntliddy- My bad! I'll fix it. Some* retirees.

derek harvey said...

thanks---no but I never resubmitted it after realising it was being sent to the wrong address. I did put it in my avi for reveal day---I saw your pic! very cute---orange is your colour dahling!

bellaluna said...

I'd watch clips of Rosie & Sarah going at it on The Soup.

Sugar said...

Thanks, poodle. I do love me some orange hair!

Christopher Cruz said...

A-to-the-men.

sugarbread maker said...

I like rosie now that she had the surgery. She has gotten healthy and found happiness and is not mad at the world like she used to be.
Now that babawawa. And bill gedde. Are not in control because I think that was a Huge problem. I would love for them to bring back Star Jones And Rosie because they have both had the surgery and they are both Hbic.

Sincerely,Your Friend said...

Whoopi, Rosie, Palin ( and.....Ross Lol).
I might tune in for the first fued.
Heck, throw in Rosanne.

Now we need a pretty Republican Blonde. (I would, but as you can see, I'm just too busy.)

Sugar said...

OMG I would DVR The View if Rosanne and Rosie were on it!

Rose said...

I like Rosie and it's not like she was fired. I would have gotten super emotional if I had to deal with EH on a daily basis as well.

Sarah Palin would be way too polarizing, worse than EH. I'm not sure if anyone other than SP has thrown her name out.

Who will be the moderator since that was both Rosie's job and now Whoopi?

Freya said...

Bad idea. Her talk show on OWN got cancelled too after just a few months. Just cancel the show and instead air "Golden Girls" reruns.

Jessica Larson said...

Sarah is a bigger idiot than Elizabeth, if they brought her on Rosie would jump ship again.

Roseanne would yell over everyone about MK Ultra & Illuminati the whole show.

Clark St. said...

Rosie would go after Gov. Half term & shred her into little tiny bits.
Palin is a halfwit & ABC certainly doesn't want that on the revamped show.
They need smart, not a moron that never even reads the home town paper.

teresa crane said...

I would totally watch if Roseanne were on

Rosie is a tad too loud for my taste

I hate that she wears Crocs everywhere

Lioness70 said...

The only time I glanced at this dreck was when I was in doctors' waiting rooms. They always seemed to have this and that harpy Rachael Ray on. Not a fan of daytime TV.

Eros said...

I've never watched the show so I guess I shouldn't have an opinion on it but I have to concede that putting Rosie on the roster just seems like a pisspoor idea. I have watched joy bayheart on cnn. They need to pay her double and bring her back. Shes funny and refreshing.... and get somebody young on that show... too many old birds on that show. I vote carmen electra...she looks twwlenty. So she will do.

Eros said...

Or *twenty lol

Tina Mallette said...

I never watch the show if I can help it but Rosie really needs to take those happy pills again. She's like Debbie Downer. She's a buzz kill. Morning TV is light and frothy for a reason which is another reason I don't watch it but all I need in the morning is The Weather Network and maybe one of those channels that has the weather the traffic and news in soundbites.

Tina Mallette said...

Now Roseanne Barr, hmmm, that's a more interesting proposition.

rosie riveter said...

Yuck, who watches this shit?? And CROCS? Nope.

auntliddy said...

Roseann and rosie! Bitch fest !!

SueRH said...

It's on at 11:00 on the east coast.

JoElla said...

why won't they just let this show die..

Instead they are killing us with it.

crila16 said...

Can't stand Rosie. I will definitely not be watching...not that I ever did anyway.

tennis peach said...

The View needs to go away. It had a good run, and since Barbara retired, it should just GO AWAY

Malibu Borebee said...

Nobody cares who ends up on these daytime shows. Ask a bunch of housewives who they want and give it to them.

TalksTooMuch said...

As a housewife, I don't watch this either. I would consider it instead of Toopy & Binoo, but I don't think that's enforceable

texas rose said...

It amazes me that some dumb bitch that publicly states that 9/11 was an inside govt conspiracy can actually be a talking head on a national tv show. What does that say about us and broadcast tv.

Navymommy said...

ITA @Texas Rose and she called our people in uniform terrorists. I emailed Disney and told them to get rid of her stupid, fat, ignorant, militant ass or I would never buy another product from them again. I must not have been the only one because two weeks later she was gone. The Spew is an embarassment to women. I hope it tanks. That is all.

Malibu Borebee said...

Who is a 9/11 conspiracy theory nut? Rosie O'Donnell?

Roseanne Barr brings a lot of crazy conspiracies with her other baggage but they're not serious about putting her on a daytime show for housewives.

texas rose said...

Malibu - not sure if you are being sarcastic but just google - Rosie O'Donnell and 9/11.

rajahcat said...

and now I can officially never watch this show again

done and done

Jason Blue Eyes said...

Palin is as big a desperate troll now as Lindsay. Fuck both of them.

texas rose said...

Agree

PotPourri said...

OBNOXIOUS AND UNWATCHABLE! At least before it was a simple-minded train wreck with Jenny and Sherri.
