But I've never seen more than maybe 30 seconds at a time of The View. With Whoopi booked for the show tonight, I'm watching this show for the first time. Strange job, I have, in that I never would have pictured growing up in Ruidoso or playing hoops at UNM or working at Oppenheimer that watching a women's day time talk show would be "work". I'm getting paid for watching this?
I've definitely become a student of talk show TV in the last few months, and this The View show you can see, really has put it together, with amazing guests, lots of production...
Happy Hour's Quick Shots, one of my favorite segments, sure takes some theme from the Hot Topics segment on The View, eh?
I used to poke fun at the permabears and the mainstream media for constantly grabbing any negative datapoint and doing their best Fred, "Oh, this is the big one. I'm coming to join ya' Elizabeth" proclamations of economic doom.
Problem is that with all these bailouts and bubbles that we're living through right now really are going to bring a big one some day.
But I am thinking spring of 2008 is probably going to be as okay as Fred was during that long, glorious run of Sanford & Son.
