After almost two years at The View, Raven-Symone has a new point of view. Well actually it is an old one because she is going to be doing a That’s So Raven sequel series for Disney Channel. That’s right kids of the ’90s, not only do you have Fuller House, you also have There’s More Raven. That is not the title, the show doesn’t have one yet or a cast or anything. According to the press release this is what we know, “Raven is now a divorced mother to two pre-teen kids (a son and daughter), one of whom has inherited her ability to catch glimpses of the future.”
What’s next? Still All That? Lizzie McGuirer? Mickey Mouse Night Club? Step By Step By Step? Just the 30 of Us? The Simpsons?
Enough about that, let’s talk about her leaving The View. That’s about all. No on cares and no one will miss her. Although, it makes you wonder how much longer the show can go on? They go through hosts like they grow on trees, which I guess they do. I mean look at many people have co-hosted The View since it launched 19 years ago. More than the years they have been on the air.
Talking about the Disney Channel, the voice behind hugely popular Elena of Avalor aka Aimee Carrero’s other show Young & Hungry was picked up for a 5th season. The news is not a surprise, it is just a surprise that Freeform took so long to do it. The sitcom will be back early next year with all new episodes.
Just days after it was reported that Michelle Collins was let go from The View, comes word that they have already found her replacement. According to Variety, GMA’s weekend anchor Sara Haines will be joining the show next season.
On a positive note, she is a journalist. On negative note, they still have all the other people on that panel. They need to get rid of everyone and start over again. My smart friend suggested that they bring back Meredith Vieira to take over the lead position. Imagine how much better the show would be with in her charge over Whoopi Goldberg and Joy Behar. At least she knows her stuff.
The View can’t keep a panel together for more than a year, no matter how hard they try. According to Variety the latest victim is Comedian Michelle Collins. Out of all the people on the panel, she is the only one I think they should keep. Whoopi Golddberg should’ve been gone a long time ago. She says the stupidest things. Almost as dumb as the things child stars Raven Symone and Candace Cameron Bure say. Why are they still there? Although rumor has it Symone is leaving and Variety says that Bure might be too busy with Fuller House to come back. Then there is Joy Behar, why did ABC bring back that loud mouth who thinks because you she talks the loudest she is always right. She never is.
Here is my solution for The View, cancel it. OK, they won’t do that just yet, then get rid of the whole panel and get two journalists, a homemaker, a politician and a celebrity to talk about the issuers of the day. Listening to a bunch of actresses and comedians talk for an hour is not whose views I care about.
Granted I’ve never seen an episode of the show and I like it that way!
The View is going to have their annual Halloween episode tomorrow and the women dressed up as some of the Disney Villainesses. Although, I am not sure if they are really in costume up because they always look that way. Well, maybe they are dressed nicer than they normally do.
When The View started out this season things were twice as rosy there with Rosie O’Donnell and Rosie Perez. Before the year ended O’Donnell left the show and now at the end of the season Perez is following her out the door.
The actress says she is departing to focus on her career; but there have been rumors the show hasn’t been happy with her performance and was planning on cutting her.
At this rate, they should honestly just cancel the show. It feels like it is time. What do you think?
