The Talk Is Different From The View, They Claim

| Filed under: TV News

the talk is not the view

In its premiere week, The Talk averaged about 2.2 million viewers, which could not even compare to the ratings of The View. But stars of the new show feel that they have something to offer that their competitors don't.

Julie Chen said:

"There is no denying the comparison to The View. But I think if people watch our show, they will get a different vibe. We are not trying to be political.

We didn't want to come across as over-the-top, screaming women, which a lot of people were expecting and secretly hoping to see happen. We just wanted to have a civilized opening."

That's too bad! We like over-the-top screaming women!

    I don't watch The View because of all the screaming, Ihate that! Get's on my nerves….. Hope this show makes it!

    My mother and I are major fans of "The View". This is only comparable to "The Talk" in the fact that it's all women.
    The Talk is a bore. I feel that The View can talk about anything, and honestly, it's fun.
    I feel the hosts of The Talk are ……….more mellow. It needs the drama, the fun, the liveliness!!!!!!!!!!!
    And I feel that it won't change in time. Just because The Talk is new, doesn't mean they should be any different now than they are in 5 years. Bonnie Hunt started her show off with a bang, and she never changed. I get that she was cancelled, but come on!

    In the End, The Talk is becoming a bore. They have had good guests, but I think the biggest problem is the hosts. I feel that they need a bit more punch! They are mostly all good hosts, but together…idk.

    oh..and to add. GET RID OF THE THREE HOSTS PER GUEST THING! I hate that. I feel that for all the celebrities and guests, the hosts should ALL be there..not just a random small amount. it doesn't work.

    Both those shows have yacky botoxs, know it alls,pass.

    Yeah, what a moron to 'shy away from' the publicity of potential drama and intrigue. This isn't Big Brother where audiences don't mind a robotic host asking questions since the CAST MEMBERS provide the drama. If you go out to get Sara Gilbert, Leah Remini, I Sharon Osbourne, isn't this mix supposed to make for differing opinions and some titillating girl talk. In other words, she is likening her show to BORING & uneventful but calling it 'civil.'

    But they are the same as the view, because no one cares what they think…



  6. 6

    THAT SHOW IS GETTING OLD SO FAST THAT EVEN THE TWO WOMEN THAT I LIKED IN THE BEGINNING ARE GETTING ON MY LAST NERVE.

    please - you can't put that many women in one room and expect them not to argue……….

    I really like The Talk much better than The View. Give them time and they will probably surpass The View in ratings. The true measure is if they go head to head in the same time slot. I remember a time when the Jerry Springer Show surpassed Oprah's ratings but in the end people got tired of the controversial topics and The Big O landed on top in the end.

    i love this show, they have no boring segments! and thats what the view struggles with, they have hot topics which is cool but the rest of the show sucks.



  10. 10

    Yawn! They should put this show on late, to help me get to sleep. I'll give it a year, tops.

    THE TALK IS A CHEAP KNOCKOFF OF THE VIEW………….NEXT!

    I cannot watch the View as long as Elizabeth is on and with all the "overtalking" it drives me nuts!

    I watched the first show of Talk and it needs some time but may do alright…

    Julie Chen is a bad bad moderator. She makes everyone so boring that they're going to get cancelled within the year. They need to be MORE like the success story that the View is and not go down the gum drop lane as many other talk shows have to cancellation.



  15. 15

    It sucks, i tried to watch it three whole times, its very boring, and the ladies are all akward at interviewing .Julie Chen is trying soo hard to be the Barbara Walters of the group, its soo obvious and embarrasing.Barbara,Whoopi,Elizabeth and Joy bring the drama that we all came to love and even love to hate.This show is a poor mans version of The View.

    i LOVE the Talk! i am not a fan of the View and i think the difference is that this show is just women hanging out not trying to prove anything. The view has an agenda and each woman is there to push their political views, but these are just mom's that share thier lives with the audience. and they are hilarious! just a fun show! i hope they stick around! and i LOVE Leah and Sharon!

    I used to love the View but got SO tired of all the screaming and bullshit. Especially cause its so one-sided. They have Elizabeth but she rarely even gets to say her opinion without people screaming over top of her. Here's hoping the Talk is more laid back and fun. Tired of bitches just screaming.

    The Talk will pickup in time! They need to test the waters.

    I personally like this new show. Like the
    view it is sometimes overtalking by the ladies, but their personalities
    are not as strong as The View. They don't seem to argue as much as just
    offering opinions and how they deal with certain problems. Mostly regarding parenting issues as they all are mothers with various ages of their children. I think it will last if they keep it like it is and don't have every person that writes a book on to push it.



  20. 20

    Five women talk at the same time on the View and the show is getting in your face obnoxious and judgmental. I do not watch it and to think of tuning into another show where SIX women talk….I would go nuts.

    I really like The Talk. After having watched the view for years, I cannot stand to watch it anymore. I was counting down the day sofr the Talk to premiere. I think that like many new show, it will take some time for them to tweak it and for the ladies to become more comfortable in their new roles. I find the show to be funny, interesting and intelligent. I hope that they do at some point get a little bit political. It's nice to see an alternative to The View. I so hate the view now! They all talk over each other and Sherry & Elizabeth get on my nerves so bad that I can't stand to watch the show anymore.

    more hos, hos, hos. what bunch of vacuous, fugly hags. what a waste!



  23. 23

    I like this show a lot. There is way too much drama on The View and after that whole Bill O'Reilly thing I've had enough. Agree with him or not, you don't storm off your own show.



  24. 24

    i really like most of the cast outside of this show but i tried to watch it
    i just couldnt
    its bad



  25. 25

    Oh God this is awful. Leah Remini is so obnoxious and bossy. And it's so obvious she is trying to steamroll Julie Chen. And what's with Sarah Gilbert. She has about as much personality as a rock. I don't know what has happened to her. When she was on Roseanne she was this feisty, funny gal. I thought she would end up like Ellen doing stand up comedy or something. Can daytime tv get any worse!



  26. 26

    I prefer political talk.



  27. 27

    I watch both shows every day. There IS a difference. The View talks more about current affairs, especially politics. They don't get much into what's going on in their lives. The Talk is more about discussing what happens in OUR every day lives, not the lives of celebrities or politicians. It's a refreshing show. I like both The View and The Talk for what they bring to the table.

    Re: kimkunt – Well, the same can be said for every single sports show that is full of nothing but men. Ugggghhhhhhh…………the only difference is that the men can only talk about sports and nothing of importance. At least of The View and The Talk they speak about all subjects. They're actually capable.

    I already like the Talk WAY better than The View. I stopped watching the View, those women are horrible and they thrive on picking people apart (maybe that's why you prefer them Perez?) The whole atmosphere on The Talk is different, the women feel more like girlfriends who would have your back instead of stab you in the back like the View.
