The revamping and reinvigorating of The View worked.
For a day, anyway.
ABC has happily announced that The View's Season 18 premiere on Monday, showcasing newcomers Rosie Perez and Nicolle Wallace with returning Rosie O'Donnell and veteran moderator Whoopi Goldberg, was the best premiere in eight years.
The show drew 3.9 million total viewers, making it the best since O'Donnell joined the cast in 2006.
Well I'm still not going to watch, but congratulations ABC.
Of course the first thing that came to mind is that ABC really dodged a bullet by refusing to even consider hiring Sarah Palin. Because that would have undoubtedly driven the show's ratings into the cellar.
And of course the second thing that occurred to me is that this must also just drive the Wasilla Wendigo crazy, and only adds to her worst week ever.
|Yes we do. We know that you are NOT a host on The View.|
