The View: May 8 2013
Recapo Update: Here are the segments from today’s show:
Amy Schumer, star of Inside Amy Schumer, reprises her role as co-host, Whoopi’s NYC gets its second installment, Bill O’Reilly from The O’Reilly Factor comes in to talk, the cast of Duck Dynasty is going to talk a little about their lives, and the Pistol Annies do a performance on The View’s May 8 show.
The View: Bill O’Reilly
What hasn’t been said about Bill O’Reilly? He’s one of Fox News’s more prominent figures, hosting the O’Reilly Factor, where Bill discusses controversial political subjects with various guests. Given his polarizing right-wing views, it will be interesting to see how he interacts with people like Whoopi, who voted for Obama. I can’t be totally sure, but I’m fairly certain that Fox News and the vast majority of its correspondents have made it abundantly clear that they don’t want President Obama in the White House.
All in all, I find someone like Bill O’Reilly to be a strange pick for a guest spot on the show. Perhaps he will discuss his book that is due out in fall, Killing Jesus: A History. Either, way, I don’t really see how he jives all that well with this show’s demographic.
The View: Duck Dynasty Cast
Duck Dynasty has blown way the heck up, and I have totally missed the bandwagon, so I really have very few ideas as to why these people will be on the show beyond the fact that, like I said, they have blown the heck up. Perhaps Duck Dynasty star Phil Robertson will be talking about his new book Happy, Happy, Happy: My Life and Legacy as the Duck Commander. Maybe they will be asked how a show about something so random could be as successful as it has been. Either way, I’m sure the family will leave some kind of impression on everyone who watches.
