The Friday "Eff-Off:" Why I'm Not Watching The View

We're introducing a new feature here at TVGS: Reviews for shows we refuse to watch. With our newest Geek Uncle Buster at the keys, we can't guarantee a fair and balanced column- but we promise it won't be boring. And in true Geek fashion, he insists on using our soon-to-be-patented 99 word format. Who are we to argue?

I’m guessing The View was originally designed to give women the same kind of forum for topical views that men have had for years. What it has devolved into is a soap box for feminist rage, shoe fetishes, and fashion shows.

Where are the issues that really affect women, or the public at large? Devoured by Joy’s liberal rants, Starr’s weight issues, and Barbara’s incoherent opinions. Adding Survivor’s Elizabeth was a half-hearted attempt to give potential male viewers some eye candy.

Even if men are lame enough to watch, they sure won’t be listening. I’ll be sleeping in, thanks.

The View airs weekdays on ABC daytime. Check your local listings.
