Ace Show Biz: More companies have cut ties with “The View” after the show landed in hot water due to its co-hosts’ controversial nurse remarks. Snuggle, Party City and McCormick have joined Johnson & Johnson and Eggland’s Best to pull their ads from the ABC talk show.
The three companies announced their withdrawals on their respective Facebook pages. Snuggle explained that the placement of its ads was not an endorsement of the program, but merely based on a timeslot.
“As a supporter of nurses, we disagree with the comments made on daytime television and have paused our advertising for that program,” the company added. “Please join us in thanking and celebrating nurses for the critical role they play in our healthcare system.”
Party City wrote, “In response to recent comments made on ‘The View,’ Party City has decided to pause its advertising accordingly.” McCormick additionally stated, “Thank you for expressing your concerns. Like you, we also value and admire nurses, so we have paused advertising on the daytime television show in question.
“The View” generated public outrage after Joy Behar and Michelle Collins mocked Miss Colorado Kelley Johnson’s nurse monologue at the Miss America pageant. “The talent, though, I have to say, the woman who sang opera, and she was incredible. Really good,” Collins said at the time. “But then there was a girl who wrote her own monologue… She came out in a nurse’s uniform and basically read her emails out loud and shockingly did not win … it was hilarious.” Behar chimed in, “Why does she have a doctor’s stethoscope on?”

The two co-hosts later apologized on the show. Collins said, “I, for all of us, want to say we love nurses. Nurses, if you’re watching, we adore you, we respect you.” Behar admitted that she was “just not paying attention,” and thought Johnson might have just been in “costume.”
THE VIEW - "The View" invited dedicated professionals from NYU College of Nursing to share firsthand what these hard working nurses do on a daily basis today, Friday, September 18, 2015. "The View" airs Monday-Friday (11:00 am-12:00 pm, ET) on the ABC Television Network.

Trying to make amends…


Trying to show how sincere they were with their apology, the show honored nurses by inviting a group of nurses on the show Friday, September 18. Behar said, “After we made comments about the Miss America broadcast and the talent performance by Miss Colorado, we heard from many of you. You let us know you were offended by some of our comments and believe me, we were listening. We apologize for our remarks and we know how important nurses are.
She added, “But we didn’t want to leave it at that. So we have invited the dedicated professionals from NYU College of Nursing to share firsthand what these hard-working nurses do on a daily basis.”
Collins admitted that she “learned a lot this week” and didn’t previously “understand the challenges facing nurses.” She added, “Hopefully, by focusing on this today, we can help better understand and recognize the critical role that nurses play in caring for others and making such a big difference.” Behar then declared, “Thank you nurses. Thank you all very much.”

You read my mind.
The only reason this show hasn’t been 86’d by now just proves how many morons are out there sucking up their drivel. Can’t wait for the cancellation of the view, cause sometimes if I’m flipping the channels not quite fast enough I actually see Joy Behar’s snarky puss and then I have to mutter something nasty under my breath, thereby wasting three seconds of my valuable time on a useless hag. When they do finally get the axe, I’m throwing a party and calling it the “Can’t See the View from Here Celebration!!”.

Trump must have been involved.
I do not think too many people actually tune in this program, TVs are left on the channel in customer service areas in tire shops Korean nail salons and institutional patients’ rooms. Then they hide the remote.
The part of Joy Behar, self loathing Jewish liberation theologist is being played by Josephina Victoria Occhiuto a self loathing liberation theologist Italian America Catholic from Brooklyn.
The View announced that they also will be giving every nurse a free car donated by the DNC and and evening out with Rosie.

Hopefully whoever wins it will tell them to shove the “evening out with Rosie”.

The worth of one nurse far exceeds that of the entire staff of “The View”.

marblenecltr . . . . wiser words were never spoken. I have possibly watched this show twice in my lifetime. After noticing that the weirdos would gang up on any conservative speaking individual–that was enough for me. Just look at that picture of Joy B., talk about an ugly, mean spirited old crown. Just to point out how stupid Joy is–even the medical assistant in my doctor’s office wears a stethoscope, since she is taking pulse readings, etc. What planet did she come from that she would not know that. Perhaps if she were more observant–she wouldn’t make such stupid… Read more »

Thank you, thank you! Is it possible that the combined “talent” of those on “The View” could build a hospital wing? For those who don’t know (no reader of FOTM falls into that category), nurses must be intelligent and learn a skill that requires a degree (often a Master’s) in Science, ability to work in stressful, emergency conditions, and with body parts and products almost everyone else avoids. Then, they must maintain a composure for patients, families, and friends suitable for the occasions. For womyn of “The View”, be nice to those who get to stick a needle into you… Read more »

Editing my above comment, “the combined talent of those”, part of the second sentence, should read, “the combined salaries of the talent”.

I have lived very well without the “View” for as long as it has aired….and I will live well and long without it (IMO…it is a DEAD LANGUAGE now for many, many years…it just hasn’t realized that it is DEAD yet….should we send in an Exhorsist????)

From one whose own work frequently needs editing, may I suggest replacement of the phrase “very well” and word “well” with the phrase “very much better”?
