It was made official this morning by ABC, and brought to light by Deadline.com yesterday that the search is over for the women that will comprise the new panel of the revamped The View set to premiere on Monday, September 15th (11AMEST)!

Joining moderators Whoopi Goldberg and Rosie O’Donnell will be Do the Right Thing actress Rosie Perez and political commentator Nicolle Wallace. They who won the spots after a search for the ladies to round out the panel upon the exits of Sherri Shepherd and Jenny McCarthy.

The new EP of The View Bill Wolff said of the hires: “These are powerful and accomplished women from different walks of life who have had amazing personal and professional experiences. Each brings incredible perspective and information to the table. This mix of smart, vibrant and energetic women is unlike anything else on daytime television.”

“I am beyond thrilled, honored and completely surprised that I’ve been asked to join The View,” said Perez.  “Knowing that I’ll be in the company of Whoopi, Rosie and Nicolle, three very smart and engaging women that I have an immense amount of respect for, makes it even more unbelievable.  The opportunity to connect with our nation’s audience on a daily basis… icing on the cake! Very happy.”

“I am honored to join the tradition of compelling conversations that has been the signature of The View for the better part of two decades,” said Wallace. “I have watched The View for many years and now to be seated alongside three women that I have admired is both humbling and incredibly exciting.”

So what do you think of a panel consisting of Whoopi, Rosie and Rosie, and Nicolle? Does it interest you more than in recent years … or not at all?  Weigh-in!

    Here because we like Soaps, not talk show trash. BIG ANNOUNCEMENT is “Did we hit the lowest common denominator”???

    Personally, I would love to see a panel consisting of Lindsay Lohan, Miss New York from Flavor of Love, Theresa Guidice and Honey Boo Boo’s Mom.

    Rosie isn’t that common of a name, so to end up having two of them on one panel– what are the chances of that? LOL.

    I think there is nothing wrong with these choices, but I do feel the format itself is running it’s course. It wouldn’t matter who they chose because I think viewers are losing interest. Frankly I believe daytime talk needs an new angle to keep the genre vibrant. The Talk was that new angle when it first debut, but after all these years and copycats that have pop up it is time to find a new way of talking in daytime.

    I hadn’t thought of that, Mary. Two Roses? I guess that beats having two Thorns.

    I thought Brooke Shields might have been a good choice.
    This might be promising–maybe I will give The View another chance. I have not seen it in years.

    Nicole Wallace worked for George W. Bush. So she seems to be the “republican” of the group.

    I will still watch the view, but the ratings better increase or the view will be cancelled. Rosie Perez will be great on the view. Good luck ladies, you will need it.

    I will be SHOCKED if that show lasts more than this season. It was terrible before Barbara left the show, and even with her clout and professionalism, she couldn’t carry it any longer. Out of curiosity, people will tune in just to check it out….for a while.

    The show literally gave me a headache… women screaming over one another, many times over nonsense. The mere fact that TPTB wanted Rosie O back only means one thing…they are only looking for ratings and will do anything to draw an audience. Perhaps during November sweeps they can ask D Trump in as a guest so he and Rosie O can tear into one another… just disgraceful and embarrassing.

    I cannot imagine, under any conditions, that Barbara W is proud of what this show has become. Nicolle Wallace, a very sharp conservative commentator, must never have seen this show if she thinks it has intelligent compelling conversations, she is in for a real shock! It may be a career killer for her in the end.

    LOL… it’s saying something when people would prefer watching Hoda & Kathlee Lee and their nonsense over the View.

    TRUST ME…if this WERE the only show on … You me and the whole of AMERICA would be watching…DAILY…for lack of anything else…so…that’s actually quite silly to say under any circumstance. Geez..it’s just a group of women on TV stating opinions..trying to be heard..and interviewing all sorts of people. But rest assured your capitalized statement was heard by someone…now breathe in…holddddd…release…go on with your day.

    Rosie Perez has made a number of appearances on public radio and is very deep and impressive, she doesn’t even use her “character” voice, I bet she will be a pleasant surprise. Whoopie and Rosie O are legends, I think one very young woman would have been cool to add to the panel…Ms. Wallace has a conservative vibe–fine–but some fine-tuning is still needed so we can tune in with the joy THE TALK is now bringing!

    No interest in previous seasons, no interest now. Women talking trash with no intelligent viewpoint. Typical Talk Show.
