I fail to understand how The View, which airs in the late morning when so many people are working, and which possesses such a narrowly-defined audience demographic of stay-at-home moms, ages 18-49 (72% of its audience at last check), manages to possess such a prominent position in this country’s zeitgeist. To put this in perspective, The View shares the same demographic as those who watch General Hospital. Think about it.
Please don’t get me wrong. I have no issue with The View. I can’t. I’ve never watched it. I simply cannot understand how the events on this daytime talk show manage to infiltrate its way into mainstream media on such a regular basis.
It’s on at 10:00 AM.
Who the hell is watching television at this hour?
