Since the arrival of Rosie O'Donnell on The View, the show has become appointment television viewing for me. And I'm not the only one. In a very unscientific poll that I took amongst my friends, male and female, people everywhere are tuning into this show in unprecedented numbers. I think the reason I like it is because it just seems fun now. Before I believe they took themselves way too seriously, really attacking the issues of the day. Now I'm all for current events but I like to get that information from a program I like to call, The News. I don't watch The View to learn about Fidel Castro. No I want to know what Britney Spears has been up to this weekend. FYI: not wearing panties as far as I can tell. Anyway, I want to get tickets to see The View because now that Rosie is in charge, they're giving away free stuff left and right: $200 gift certificates to Target and some sort of cooker was today's gift. Speaking of today, on the show was Matthew Broderick who was promoting his new film Deck The Halls. What happened to him? He got old. And if he got old that means I've gotten old. I'm sad about how not good he looks. I loved him as baby face Ferris Bueller, I mean LOVED him, thought he was such a suave sophisticated older man. Now he's a middle aged dad. I guess that happens to the best of us. Are you watching The View now that Rosie and her "libel to say anything" attitude is back on the tube? Why are you watching? Are you waiting for a Hasselbeck/O'Donnell throwdown like me? I don't want to miss it.
