Rosie Perez, Nicolle Wallace Join ‘The View’

PerezWallaceActress Rosie Perez and political commentator Nicolle Wallace will fill the vacant seats on The View when the ABC daytime talk show returns for a new season on Sept. 15. They will join Rosie O’Donnell and Whoopi Goldberg as replacements for Sherri Shepherd and Jenny McCarthy, who left the program last month.

NEW YORK (AP) — Actress Rosie Perez and Republican media operative Nicolle Wallace are joining ABC’s daytime chat show, “The View.”

The network said Wednesday that the two will join Whoopi Goldberg and Rosie O’Donnell on the panel for the show’s new season, beginning Sept. 15.

Goldberg is the only holdover on the program, where creator Barbara Walters retired from an onscreen role this spring and longtime producer Bill Geddie left after learning a new offscreen boss was taking over.

Perez is an actress and choreographer who has appeared in the movies “Do the Right Thing” and “Fearless.” Wallace, a political analyst for MSNBC, was communications chief for President George W. Bush’s reelection campaign and was an adviser on John McCain’s 2008 campaign.

Who has time for 4 women yelling at each other & also who is Wallace ??
They can’t do better than this. Walters is retired & the show is way out of step with the real economic& viewing world.
Stick a fork in it & give the time back to stations. Local weather in San Diego would be more interesting !!!

The View, The Talk, and The Real are nothing but hen shows that totally suck and has no value in the world of Daytime TV. I have never watched the first 2 of them and I do not intend to watch The Real either!

    The Chew is a better alternative. At least it has substance.

    Flash Flood, you are not in the show demographic so your opinion is moot. I am. And I personally think The Real will resonate with the daytime viewer and provide entertainment as well as talk dribble. And I do think The Talk will benefit from the sunken ship of The View as the host on the CBS show are actually watchable. Poor abc, trying to hang onto as much network real estate as they can. Just give it back to the affiliates to program. Not like that will solve the ultimate problem but know when to throw in the towel abc.

Oh look . . . people not in the show’s demographics kvetching about the show. So much anti-woman conversations online. It’s weird, really.

    lol…i was thinking the same thing, though I do believe that besides an initial curiosity bump, this will pretty much kill The View, leaving The Talk the overall survivor. Pretty amazing as people at CBS, including Chung-Moonves, did not have confidence it would survive it’s first season.

    What’s weird is your distorted take on the comments. So what?! Television professionals look at and analyze all types of programming regardless of demographics–and that includes shows for and by women. Only a lefty fascist would twist the comments into an ‘anti-woman conversation’, whatever that means.

    D BP – The majority of people commenting above are NOT Television Professionals – not in a position to analyze all types of programming and would not know how to do it if they were in the position. So yes, it is a bunch of Old Men calling it the way they see it – Just like they said that Jimmy Fallon would bomb and Jay would be called back for a 3rd time. They do not have the ability to judge, which is why they are not in TV and sit around commenting all day.
