With just 4 not all of the hosts can get a word in before a commercial break ddd
Ana already feels like such a regular part of show at this point, so I'm glad to finally see her get the title to reflect it. And I've grown to enjoy Alyssa; while I don't agree with her most of the time, she now sits comfortably on the panel, developing a decent rapport with the other women, knowing how to jump in to make her point, and still allowing others time to speak up. A six-person panel does sound chaotic, but I won't be mad if it means less Whoopi and/or if it drowns out Joy and Sunny when they get stuck on one of their frustrating tangents.
While I do wish they had announced a younger, super-progressive member that could serve as a great balance for Alyssa, it was clear that hasn't been something on their radar. I just worry the panel is getting more and more stuck in a sea of moderate voices who don't differ all that much from each other.
Ana and Sara are basically the same, opinion-wise. I'm glad Ana has an official co-host title after all she's given the show (and I'd take her over Sara) but it's really not necessarily what the show actually needed to stay relevant and reflective of the social and political landscape.
I had to chuckle at the difference in receptions for Alyssa’s announcement and Ana’s. Whoopi said Ana’s name and people audibly orgasm’d. It was the funniest thing.
Meanwhile Meghan is planning to move to Israel if it all goes to shit!

“If in 15 years [Liberty] came to me and said to me, ‘The View wants to have me host there,’ I would lie in front of a train track before I let her go to that show.”
Totally missed that today was the last episode of the season.
I don’t think we’ll get a six panel show.
I think there are likely two options going -
1. Alyssa and Ana are doing a job share and having 6 allows extra cover whenever the show needs to boost itself from 4 to 5 due to absence
2. Whoopi may be going down from four days to three. Therefore, we may get Alyssa all week and Ana on a part time basis.
I think Ana says she’ll be on 2 days a week? Or does she mean two shows a day? I’m confused.
Sorrynotsorry I can’t stop chuckling to myself about how Meghan was on that podcast continuing to talk about how much of a strong-willed, unapologetic badass she is (she has even likened herself to Khaleesi at one point on Twitter) … and yet, in the same episode, she reports that one on-air interaction with Joy Behar caused her to start hysterically crying, lactating, and vomiting in her office. Yup, you sure are a real one, Meg.
I imagine Ana will for sure do Thursday and Friday, with Whoopi off Fridays which would mean only Thursday (and Wendesday if she does three a week) would have six cohosts.
The gays and soccer moms tuning in to watch conservatives get dragged stay winning!
Gays & soccer moms rejoice - they're back next Tuesday!
I screamed at Whoopi giving, "Am I really still here?!" for the promo shoot ddd.
The premiere is a day of Hot Topics, but upcoming guests include Hillary & Chelsea Clinton, Reese Witherspoon, Regina Hall, Stacey Abrams, Constance Wu, Cori Bush, Viola Davis, Quinta Brunson, Jenifer Lewis, Huma Abedin, Billy Eichner, Jenette McCurdy, Elisabeth Moss, and Star Jones.
I'm really interested to see how the heck they make 6 hosts work.
It won’t if Whoopi has anything to say about it.
Sunny serving leg
But of course.
Is Anna still going to be rotating in and out?
I believe she said she'd be there around 2 days a week now. So either Whoopi will be gone 2 days a week, someone else will tap out once a week, or one day a week they'll have a 6-person table.
I don't think Hasselbeck was that bad on the show. I remember thinking at the time they were crazy to fire her (and Joy, obvs).
