Man, they're having a hard time finding guests.

Everyone is probably asking if Meghan will be there. If so, no thanks.

I'm wondering if the day of hot topics on Wednesday and Friday is in case ABC decides to show live coverage of the impeachment hearings ( so far there's no information about this one way or the other).

eta - I just found this -

ABC, CBS, NBC and PBS will set aside scheduled programming next week to cover the House's first open impeachment hearings on President Trump. ABC News

I can think of a few reasons why that might be:

Guests don't like to be screamed at simultaneously by the panel.

If the panel is going to ask a guest a question, allow him/her to fully answer before pouncing on & interrupting the guest. We already know the panel's view, how about allowing the guest to give their view?

If a guest is there to promote a book, how about you ask questions specifically about the book.

If the panel wants civility, they should set an example. After all, 2 wrongs don't make a right.

That could be it.  That way they don't have to worry about canceling guests and rebooking.

Another birthday show, but, there should be some good music.

I was thinking the same thing. Omg not another birthday, but hell yes, the music will be good.

Sad guests for the week, although , I knew they'd be all about Frozen 2  my granddaughter  certainly  is.

I'm sure they'd have more guests if there wasn't the chance they'd be pre-empted most of the week

Their quality of guests has declined a lot over the past few years. Every once in awhile they will get an A lister but not like they used to. They don't even get a lot of stars from the ABC shows. Maybe it's because Barbara is no longer there but View is no longer a part of the routine press tour stars do to promote their projects.

Did this woman (Meghan) just fool around in class - "post-hummus-ly"?!!!!!!!!!!!

What's funny is, it looks like she actually practiced reading from the teleprompter, and slowed down her normal speaking speed.  She looked so proud of herself.

Mayor Pete is 22 years younger than Amy Klobucher.  Of course he has less experience.  

 I loved when Meghan said “Just one more thing” and she was totally ignored and they cut to commercial.

Exactly!  Are we sure she graduated from Columbia University in NYC?  Or was it the "Rocco Columbo School For Women", where she was taught typewriter maintenance"?  (shout out to Tom Cruise in "A Few Good Men")

If they can't handle Meghan, I feel very sorry for them.

I'm happy for MM family, and all the vets in the audience. We've had family members that served, many of us have, and to them, I say thankyou.

I prefer Mayor Pete to Amy  although she's a strong woman, Mayor Pete seems very calm, perhaps that's why he's gained in the polls. 

I loved when MM said if one of them is away,  out come the tin foil hats, that's so true. Sometimes  life or sickness  gets in the way.

I tried not to look at the deals, because it seems tacky today, imho.

They are showing previews of guests coming up, and it looks good, including  Ronan Farrow who might join the view for one day.

I think they moved away from guests because who watches for the guests? I can't remember the last time I watched last hot topics.

The View also has more viewers than the late night shows and is up there with Ellen. Guest are just not their focus anymore.

The View must have figured out that many turn it off when VYD is at the end of the show.  Now we have to FFwd through the snippets interspersed throughout the show.

The View makeup people should learn to make the face match the neck.  Judd Apatow had an unnatural shade of orange face contrasting his pink neck.   Sunny & Meegun routinely have ears, necks and hands that look like they belong to someone else's face.

Probably because they've let Whoopi and McCain degrade this show. First Whoopi who destroyed the panel one season because she couldn't bear to be sitting next to three women who were smarter than her, and now McCain who's turned this show into Real Housewives of ABC. Not saying everyone took it very seriously in the past, but it's an even bigger joke these days. The only reason it's hanging on is because of Joy, imo.

Btw, I loved the interview today. We don't often get those fun, lighthearted moments with Joy anymore because McCain's constantly looking for any excuse to snipe and scream at her.

Im surprised they havent talked about it at all.  At least give their schedule and how theyre going to work it.  Like theyll run a rerun if theres air time, but nothing new will be on

Sigh. Loved Garys show. So damned funny 😥

It doesn't matter when they have VYD.  Viewers will still FF through it.  I watch it online and have never once watched that segment.

What has always bothered me about the "View Your Deals"  is the insistence that all the items are  "50- 60% OFF!!"  when in reality, the prices are about what you would expect for similar items online or in a store.  The Kimonos, for example.  Cute, for $19.95 - that's about what one would expect, buying the same thing at JCP, or Target, or on Amazon.  But don't tell me that the retail price is over $50, (Over $80 for the velvet ones)  and I'm getting a DEAL.  Because that just isn't the case.  A 4 ounce tube of handcream is $22 and I'm getting a deal by paying $11?  Give me a break!

To be fair, the more agitated Meghan gets, the redder her ears (at least her left one) become.  That blood flow "trumps" any makeup that might be applied.

Depends on the hand cream.

I’ve bought a few items from VYD and found they tend to be on clearance at the retailer’s site.  Supplies and/or choices are limited. But everything I’ve bought is decent quality.

If you're interested in any of the "deals," it's a good idea to check the 'net for the exact or similar items.  The only great deal I got was on Poo Pourri (some sort of bundle) and I used it for the family "Dirty Santa" gift exchange.  It was NOT appreciated by the person who opened it...but it was stolen a couple of times.

I will say, they do have great deals on the Color Wow hair products. 

That is the only thing I have bought. Yes, I did but it was a long time ago. You can probably find them online close to the same price.

Meghan said she won't be there the rest of the week. I wish she chose a different week to not be there and not the week when the show will probably be preempted by the impeachment hearings. Shucks. 

Abby is a broken record - she once again said she doesn't know how much the impeachment hearings will move the needle. She says that same thing every time they talk about this.

Yesterday Whoopie was criticizing Joy for being there when she was sick but Whoopie sure sounds sick today.

Oh no!  Someone having an opinion different from Meghan's is making her life harder!  Good thing you're off for the rest of the week then, Meggie.

Well shoot. The first 16 minutes were fine like yesterday, then Meg goes on a rant against some writer Joy was quoting because he makes her life harder. I’m sure that was his intention, Meg.
