When Sherri Shepherd was asked if the world was flat by Whoopi Goldberg on an infamous episode of The View, she responded: "I don't know. I never thought about it Whoopi. Is the world flat? I never thought about it. I tell you what I thought about, how I'm going to feed my child." "Well you can do both, you know," Barbara Walters responded to Sherri Shepherd; rejecting the theory that she could not be a mother and ponder whether or not the earth was flat at the same time. Later Shepherd would dismiss the whole incident as her "having a brain fart." Howard Stern would later be a guest on The View and would mock Shepherd as well for her flat earth theories: "I know what you mean Sherri. Sometimes when I walk around I feel like I could walk over the edge and fall off the face of the earth." See more »
I don't normally watch daytime TV since I work days, but I have from time to time, over the years, watched several episodes of The View. At first, it comprised of experienced journalists, a respected attorney, and a stand-up comedian. The discussions were intelligent, thought-provoking and enjoyable. It soon morphed into 3 stand-up comedians, a has-been TV journalist, and Elizabeth H. (whatever she is or claims to be). The discussions were loud, ill-informed, and mean-spirited. The panel seemed more interested in arguing than providing any semblance of meaningful discourse. Obviously, the show's producers didn't think much of their audience to dumb down a once promising talk show so severely. Now, all stand-up comedians (although Barbara is usually sitting). The show is too loud, too abrasive, and totally irrelevant. I couldn't get through 10 minutes of it. Although you can draw a parallel to the far superior and extremely great, great show Breaking Bad: watch as the good show goes terribly, terribly wrong.
