Today was Abby's last show before going on maternity leave. Curious if we'll just get more Ana, a rotation of guest co-hosts or just four at the table?

 

Also, Meghan missed another show. Is she avoiding certain hot topics? Does she return next season?

A Chorus Line revival played its final Broadway performance on August 17, 2008. The tour played its final performance on August 21, 2011. A new non-equity tour started in October 2012 played its final performance on March 23, 2013. Another non-equity tour launched on January 20, 2018. The tour ended its US run in Kansas City and then toured throughout Japan August & September 2018.

There’s been quite a lot of drama involving Meghan, her husband, and Seth Meyers. I wondered today if that had anything to do with her absence.

Also, they claim to be friends but Meghan doesn’t seem to be a very kind and loyal friend to Abby.

Maybe Im watching a different show than everyone else but Megan seems to be exactly that to Abby. Loyal, kind, and usually backs her up when she seems timid.

 

With that being said, last I heard everyone is returning. They're negotiating raises now since the ratings are so great.

Yeah, money talks. I'm expecting everyone to return, just don't be surprised if we see more sick days being used and we get more Ana Navarro and guest co-hosts.

Yes, I'm wondering if this is why McCain was off the show, as well. The timing is just a bit too coincidental, don't you think?

I hope they do not have Ana Navarro each day for the next three months. She can be quite overbearing at times, and shuts everyone down.

Not sure what is meant by "a lot of drama with Meghan and Seth Meyers." I saw the episode with her on his show and they were perfectly amicable and reasonable in their political discussion, acknowledging that they clearly are on opposite sides. 

Anyone know why there was an "encore presentation" today? They had them late last week and Monday due to holiday weekend, but today was Wednesday, post-holiday.

Who in the world has time to watch this show? Seems like you would have to be unemployed or retired.

Apparently because of the Mueller thing, the show got pre-empted and so they had a repeat on. The David Letterman interview will now play on Friday.

Obviously you haven’t read about what her husband did after that interview.

Who DVR's The View? And YouTube has entire episodes? I just can't believe that anyone watches the program,

The word is drivel, not dribble.

You’re wasting your time and our time right now in this thread with YOUR drivel.

I'm assuming today's episode was the one that was supposed to air in Wednesday, hence why Whoopi was there?

 I kind of thought I was using the wrong word but dribble just sounded funny to me. That being said, it is no surprise that you would be the one to correct me. You seem to have contempt for people in general and it appears you enjoy making members on this board feel worthless.

Today's episode was nice. No Meghan, no Joy. Pretty balanced table.

It made me laugh! (...I thought you were deliberately using a malapropism) wink

I work nights, so that's my excuse for watching. The show is no substitute for the absence of John Stewart, but it's my current source of infotainment. If it were to go off the air tomorrow, would I be sad? Nope. Still, it's (for me) the best source I have for news and op eds.

I'd rather have John Stewart back, though.

Although I have much respect for her father, how he conducted himself in office, and his heroism, the chronic pandering commentary many political guests lavish on Meghan McCain needs to stop. It seems to have opened a door that allows her to behave as th spoiled, attention-seeking little brat she has become on the panel.

Including when Meghan called Joy a bitch?

 

Whatever days when Ana Navarro is there always makes for a better show. Ana can just replace Abby next season.

I actually thought the "bitch" moment was nice in a sense. I have the pleasure of popping in backstage from time to time and it seems everyone is happy and I think that just proves, they all DO like each other.

 

Navarro on the other hand...makes me want to turn it off and never watch again. Tries WAY too hard to be funny.
