    I don’t mind Rosie but they need a man to balance things out, regardless if it’s a woman’s show. I think Mario Cantone whatever his last name is fits well.

  • Tinomer

    There’s nothing manly about him haha

  • Christian

    This show was supposed to be about talking about events, whether in pop culture or in politics, through a woman’s point of view. Why would they need a man for that? Plus, I don’t like the implications of having a gay man (a flamboyant one at that) fill a seat on an all women’s panel.

  • James

    Is this a permanent co host thing or just a guest?

  • AllOfHerTw!st

    they need a man to balance things out

    Rosie’s pretty manly.

  • Doug

    Guess now that Hasselbeck is gone, she thought it was safe to return.

  • SarahK123

    Is it just me or are they short one co-host?

    Did Jenny replace Joy or Elisabeth and how come they didn’t announce two new panellists?

  • Nick

    Now that Elizabeth is gone, they should ask her back on a full-time basis. She and Whoopi were the two best additions to this show over its run.

  • Carol

    Now that Elisabeth is not there perhaps she will have some class and not scream or lecture anyone but I doubt it.
    She is so self-righteous about any and every thing. Her sense of humor is lost somewhere. I like Jenny but stopped DVRing the view for The Talk.

    That show is still on?? Yawn…

  • Jennifer

    Nice sweeps stunt.
