First Impressions: Whoopi on The View

I really thought Whoopi Goldberg was going to make The View even more boring that it already was, but she's gone all Sister Act (loved that movie) and surprised me! On her first day, she brought about major controversy regarding the Michael Vick dogfighting charges, saying his, um, hobby was "not that unusual" in the South, where Vick is from. PETA's freaking out, people from the south are freaking out, we love it (not the dogfighting, obvi., but the drama!). Even fired cohost Rosie O'Donnell thinks Whoopi did good.

So, this season of The View appears to be off to a good start. Plus, Barbara Walters announced on air that the other empty seat (vacated when Meredith Vieira went to the Today Show last year -- love your blog, Mer!) will be filled next Monday, September 10.

Let's have it: What do YOU think of Whoopi's first two days on the job, and -- here we go again -- who do you think will be the next cohost to join The View? Sherri Shepherd? Kathy Griffin? Plus, what's your take on Whoopi's comments about Michael Vick?
