Whoopi Goldberg to join The View


Not that anybody cares, but Barbara Walters officially announced today that Whoopi Goldberg has been signed on to replace Rosie O’Donnell has co-host of The View. She’ll start co-hosting the day after Labor Day.

I guess this was a fitting choice. How else are you supposed to know how hip and progressive the show is unless they hire a minority? And if you want to know what the show will be like in the fall, gather up a group of white women at your office and one black woman, then have them repeatedly kick you in the nuts while screaming. Ahh, who needs TV?
