The Meredith Vieira Show - The View (talk show) - Netflix
The View is an American talk show that was conceived by broadcast journalist Barbara Walters and television producer Bill Geddie. It has aired on ABC as part of the network's daytime programming block since August 11, 1997. The show broadcasts live from the ABC Broadcast Center in New York City, featuring a multi-generational panel of women as co-hosts, who discuss the day's “Hot Topics” ranging from sociopolitical to entertainment news. While the show primarily spotlights conversations between its panelists, it also regularly features interview segments with prominent figures, such as celebrities and politicians. Throughout its run, The View has had a total of 21 co-hosts of varying characteristics and ideologies, with the original panel comprising Walters, broadcast journalist Meredith Vieira, lawyer Star Jones, then-newcomer Debbie Matenopoulos, and comedian Joy Behar. The number of permanent co-hosts featured on the show ranges from four to eight women, with the panel currently consisting of Behar, actress Whoopi Goldberg, Good Morning America Weekend anchor Paula Faris, ABC News correspondent Sara Haines, lawyer Sunny Hostin, and political commentator Meghan McCain. In addition, the show often makes use of male and female guest panelists. Since its inception, The View has won 30 Daytime Emmy Awards, including Outstanding Talk Show and Outstanding Talk Show Host. The show has also received positive reviews from The New York Times, Slate, Entertainment Weekly, New York Post, and HuffPost. Beginning in 2007, the show became subject to on-air controversies and media criticism due to frequent changes in its panel of co-hosts, subsequently causing a decline in ratings. In 2014, the show was transferred from the helm of the entertainment division to that of ABC News, which led to a viewership growth and warmer critical response. In 2017, the show became the only broadcast daytime program to see a rise in its overall audience from the previous season.
