But who's No. 1?
The View has ushered in a new season with a new set, new hosts and a very obvious new direction. Season 18 began with Whoopi Goldberg, Rosie Perez, Rosie O'Donnell and Nicolle Wallace praising the throne — literally — of Barbara Walters.
Joan Rivers' funeral Sunday in New York City was a star-studded event — and, by all accounts, exactly the kind of glitzy, laugh-filled celebration she would have wanted.
A forthcoming book about newswomen Katie Couric, Diane Sawyer and Christiane Amanpour hints that there may be something more than a professional rivalry between Couric and Sawyer. In The News Sorority, which will be released on September 30, author Sheila Weller alleges that Couric once made a snarky comment about Sawyer, implying that the ABC World News anchor trades sex for stories.
Rosie O'Donnell is officially returning to The View. After reports surfaced earlier this week that O'Donnell was in negotiations to come back to the show, ABC confirmed the news Thursday via Twitter. (Apparently the objections of O'Donnell's nemesis, former View co-host Elisabeth Hasselbeck, fell on deaf ears.)
Send questions and comments to email@example.com and follow me on Twitter! Question: With Emmy nominations coming up, I had a few questions about Orange Is the New Black. What effect if any do you think Season 2 airing just around the time of Emmy voting will have on the show? Thankfully, Season 2 seems to have lived up to its predecessor in the eyes of the critics (I thought the season overall might have even been better than the first), and performances by cast members like Uzo Aduba (Suzanne "Crazy Eyes") and Samira Wiley (Poussey) blew me out of the water, but if the season didn't live up to expectations, could it have possibly hurt the show in the nominations process this year as well as next?

Barbara Walters is finally speaking out on the future of The View following the abrupt firings of hosts Sherri Shepherd and Jenny McCarthy.
Barbara Walters has learned a lot throughout her 50-plus years as a journalist, and on Sunday's episode of Oprah's Master Class, she's sharing the most significant piece of wisdom she can impart on others. "The most important thing a journalist or interviewer can do is to listen," she says in the exclusive clip below. "Too often we write questions down and no matter what, we go onto our second question and our third question because that's the way we've written them. We shouldn't. The first question gets asked and the second question should be, why? How come? Tell me more. ... If you don't listen you're not a journalist." OWN announces Darlene Love movie starring Toni Braxton, Octavia Spencer miniseries During the hour, Walters, a 12-time Emmy Award winner, shares a rare glimpse into her career, from getting her big break and becoming the first woman to co-anchor Today, to interviewing every sitting president since Richard Nixon, and why she chose to leave The View.
