I used to hate it. Then I became unemployed.

I used to hate The View. I wondered, why would anyone want to sit there and watch four or five women yak and yak for 60 minutes? But then I became unemployed and everything changed. Now, I can't go a day without watching them discuss, argue, laugh, dispute, scream, point, cry, and sometimes just talk over things with one another. I just don't know what it is that sucked me in!

I'll admit, the show played an important role in the 2008 US presidential election. Any time a hot topic came up, it was discussed vehemently by the co-hosts before millions of viewers. Ultimately, I think The View helped shape many people's opinions and allowed them to make more informed decisions when it came time to vote. Now that the election is over, I'm still addicted, mainly to Whoopi and Joy.

So there you have it. A young-adult male who openly admits to watching The View on a regular basis when he can. Now it's your turn to join me!

For a daytime talk show this one is easy to underestimate.

Dang, Whoopi just told off an audience member whose phone rang during the show. PMS much? Well, I bet this entire show runs offa the hosts' menstruation cycles. I'd wait for the segment about why men should never be on Facebook, but... *clicky*
