Barbara Walters Is Making Whoopi...

... the new cohost of The View. The official announcement came earlier today. No word on whether or not Sherri Shepherd will be the fifth, but she's reportedly a shoo-in for the job. What do you think of Babs's picks? I personally think they are very safe and won't do anything for ratings. Love her or hate her, Rosie O'Donnell got people to watch. These peeps? Not so much. And I like Whoopi Goldberg, but I really think she peaked when she was Oda Mae Brown in 1990's Ghost. ("Molly, I got a message from Sam...") By the time Sister Act 2: Back in the Habit came out, she lost her cred. For more on Whoopi, the View and all things TV, visit our friends at TV Cocktail
