The idea of women talking to one another on daytime television is not exactly radical. The idea that those women should be smart and accomplished is still odd enough to make The View seem wildly different. It actively defies the bubbleheads-'R'-us approach to women's talk shows....

The View has caught on with viewers because it gives expression to feelings more complicated, and real, than its detractors realize. Like the Rat Pack, it's all about freedom in an uptight world. Vieira, Walters, et al., have confessed to a lot of things on the show that women are supposed to feel guilty about: forgetting to vote, being too lazy to exercise, hating skinny models, letting the kids watch too much TV, admiring Hollywood's latest hunk. And, apparently, they don't care what people think. Look, I'm not holding them up as role models. And I'm not saying they're representative of the death of feminism, or the rebirth of feminism, or anything like that. I just like the way they don't give a damn. If the Rat Pack was Everyman's id, The View is Everywoman's. These chicks do it their way, and are very inspirational to all women.

The show premiered with four co-hosts: Meredith Vieira, Star Jones Reynolds, Debbie Matenopoulos, and Barbara Walters. Walters and Joy Behar initially took turns as the fourth co-host, an approach that at least one TV critic considered disconcerting:[1] This article or section does not cite any references or sources. ...

The comedian Joy Behar, who appears on the days when Ms. Walters is off, is truly funny but hasn't blended in yet; at times it seems as if a Joan Rivers clone had parachuted in.

Season 9 (2005-2006)

The View experienced several host changes through the end of season 9 and the start of season 10.


Vieira's departure

Meredith Vieira announced on April 6, 2006 that she was leaving the show to become the co-anchor of NBC's The Today Show.[5] On April 28, 2006, an announcement was made[6] that former talk show host Rosie O'Donnell would be joining the show at the start of the tenth season in September 2006. is the 96th day of the year (97th in leap years) in the Gregorian calendar. ...

Jones Reynolds' departure

The announcement about O'Donnell fueled speculation that Jones Reynolds would also leave the show. One reason for this speculation was a dispute regarding O'Donnell's public remarks about Jones Reynolds' dramatic weight loss. (Jones Reynolds had publicly stated that the weight loss was a result of diet and exercise, but O'Donnell suggested that she was not being truthful, and that it was a result of gastric bypass surgery).[7] In a 2007 issue of Glamour magazine, Jones Reynolds revealed that she had, in fact, undergone gastric bypass surgery in August 2003, leading to her dramatic weight loss over the next four years. Gastric bypass procedures (GBP) are any of a group of similar operations used to treat morbid obesity—the severe accumulation of excess weight as fatty tissue—and the health problems (comorbidities) it causes. ...

On June 27, 2006, Jones Reynolds announced her departure from the show on the air. Reynolds said she would remain on the show through July, but the next day Walters announced that Reynolds would no longer be a part of The View except for previously recorded segments. Both ABC and Jones Reynolds have publicly stated that the decision to not renew her contract was not related to the hiring of O'Donnell. In an interview with People magazine, Reynolds claimed the decision to leave was not hers, and that in April producers told her that her contract would not be renewed.[8] According to an interview with the Associated Press, Walters stated that ABC executives had apparently decided not to renew Jones Reynolds' contract as early as the previous fall due to diminished approval for the co-host which was showing up in their market research. Walters said, "We tried to talk them [network executives] out of it, and we tried to give Star time to redeem herself in the eyes of the audience, and the research just kept getting worse." Walters has publicly commented about feeling "betrayed" by Jones Reynolds, since Jones Reynolds unexpectedly made the announcement two days ahead of schedule.

Following Jones Reynolds' departure, the show used guest co-hosts to fill her spot. Various media outlets reported that television personality Gayle King and actress Sheryl Lee Ralph were both interested in the job. Jones Reynolds eventually landed a job with AOL as an "AOL Coach"[10] and subsequently negotiated a deal with Court TV to host her own one-hour talk show, Star Jones which premiered on August 20, 2007.[11] Gayle King (left) on the set of the Oprah Winfrey Show Gayle King (born in Chevy Chase, Maryland) is editor-at-large for O, The Oprah Magazine and is the best friend of Oprah Winfrey. ...

Season 10 (2006-2007)

On September 5, 2006, Rosie O'Donnell made her debut as the new co-host, and moderator of the show. With the new changes in place, September 2006 brought in record ratings. A total of 3.1 million viewers watched that month, the highest total viewership the program has ever seen. The talk show also surged 34% in the advertiser-friendly "women aged 18-49" demographic, and sustained its early season success with its best ever November sweeps period.[12] Entertainment Weekly magazine in March 2007 cited The View as doing for daytime TV what the Daily Show has done for nighttime TV in that it offers viewers a show that deals in genuine opinion and not mere fluff.[13] Image File history File links Broom_icon. ... is the 248th day of the year (249th in leap years) in the Gregorian calendar. ...

During season 10, O'Donnell led the daytime women's chatfest as the moderator steering the opening "Hot Topics" portion of the show. Unlike previous seasons, however, politics and taboo subjects were readily explored with the two comics (O'Donnell and Joy Behar) quickly finding humor in the news of the day and often giving strong opinions against President George W. Bush's policies including the war in Iraq which was losing support amongst Americans. As a counterpoint to O'Donnell's more liberal views, conservative co-host Elisabeth Hasselbeck would often support the Bush Administration's views and the two would get into an adversarial give-and-take at least until both had made their points.

Always outspoken, O'Donnell sometimes crossed a line with certain audiences when the comedien would talk politics or veer into religious discussions, at one time stating "radical Christianity is just as threatening as radical Islam". Often clips from the show would be recirculated by other media outlets, often surprising The View co-hosts. In reaction, O'Donnell lamented that news outlets were focusing on less important subjects like her comments instead of more important issues.

Announcement of O'Donnell departure

On April 25, 2007, O'Donnell announced she would be leaving the show as a co-host when her contract expires in June because she and the network could not come to terms on the length of a new contract, but that she planned to return as an occasional correspondent.[14] is the 115th day of the year (116th in leap years) in the Gregorian calendar. ...

After extensive interviews with insiders and industry analysts, the weekend editions of celebrity gossip shows, Entertainment Tonight and Inside Edition[15] broadcast on Saturday, April 28, reported there was more to the issue than initially was announced. Rosie only wanted to sign a one year contract for $10 million, when ABC wanted her to sign a three year contract for $30 million. O'Donnell allegedly had decided as early as December, following what she perceived as Walters's half-hearted support during her ongoing controversy with Donald Trump, she would not renew her contract and began holding talks with at least one major studio about producing a new talk show. (On her personal blog, O'Donnell admitted interest in hosting an issues-oriented show with audience participation, a format introduced by Phil Donahue.) [16] Both programs cited a New York Post Page Six article, a gossip column, detailing O'Donnell's failed attempt to oust Walters from her producer's chair and ABC's growing concerns with her unpredictable outbursts.[17] On the April 30 episode of The View, Barbara Walters announced there was no truth to any published or televised reports without referring to any specific sources. On Friday, May 25, 2007, it was announced by ABC and O'Donnell that she would not stay until the end of her contract (which is supposed to end on June 21, 2007). She requested early leave on May 25, after an on-air dispute with Hasselbeck. ABC granted her request. On October 9, 2007 five months after O'Donell left The View, she admitted that she was actually fired from the show.[18] On her own blog [19], Rosie has repeatedly noted that she was making a joke about being fired as part of a routine at a comedy club, whereas in reality, she had not been fired.

Hasselbeck/O'Donnell argument

Rosie O'Donnell and Elisabeth Hasselbeck in a heated exchange on O'Donnell's last day on The View shown as a split-screen.

On the May 23, 2007, episode of The View, O'Donnell and Hasselbeck became engaged in a heated debate[20] picking up from a previous discussion in which O'Donnell noted that 655,000 Iraqis have died since the United States invasion of Iraq and asked "who are the terrorists?" which drew criticism from some conservative media outlets who viewed O'Donnell's comment as referencing the troops in Iraq, while O'Donnell claimed she had been referring to the Bush administration. O'Donnell asserted that it was "cowardly" to not answer if Hasselbeck believed O'Donnell thinks of American troops as terrorists. O'Donnell also remarked that some media portray her as a "fat, loud, lesbian" bully attacking "innocent pure Christian Elisabeth" whenever they disagreed on air and she believed Republican pundits were misinterpreting her statements. O'Donnell asked Hasselbeck if she agreed with those critics but Hasselbeck refused to answer. Image File history File links No higher resolution available. ...

When the debate continued past the five-minute mark and showed the two in a split-screen arguing, guest co-host Sherri Shepherd tried to cut to commercial break but O'Donnell kept discussing and added "No because we have a lot more time." Moments later Behar endeavored to end the heated exchange by interjecting "Is there no commercial on this show? What are we on, PBS? Who is directing this show? Let's go to commercial!"

O'Donnell's departure

Two days later, in a press release, O'Donnell said she bore no ill will towards Hasselbeck and said that she "loves all three women". However, in her blog, O'Donnell stated she had not talked to Hasselbeck, and that she was in shock and "stunned" that Ms. Hasselbeck had brought up Donald Trump, with whom O'Donnell had publicly feuded. She later posted a video on her blog discussing her future relationship with Hasselbeck and in a subsequent blog post stated that "I haven't spoken to Elisabeth, and I probably ever won't". [22] O'Donnell also attempted to restate the controversial comment that had caused the feud with Hasselbeck saying, "the cowards who sent r [our] troops to this war... those men rr[are] the terrorists."[23] According to ABC News, O'Donnell said that she knew her time on the show was over when she saw the exchange reported in the news media with the split screen effect showing her and Hasselbeck on either side. ABC News also reported that O'Donnell's arguments with Hasselbeck brought the show its best ratings ever.[24] Image File history File links WikiNews-Logo. ...

While the number of viewers was higher than the year before O'Donnell joined the show, in the month following her departure, viewership was down by an average of 232,000.[25]


A variety of different names were floated around as replacements for O'Donnell during the tenth season's final months. Among those reportedly considered to replace O'Donnell were Whoopi Goldberg, Gayle King, Sherri Shepherd, Kathy Griffin, Roseanne Barr and Mario Cantone. On August 1, Barbara Walters ended speculation when she announced that Whoopi Goldberg would be replacing O'Donnell as moderator for the show's eleventh season. When asked by Joy Behar if she liked engaging in celebrity feuds, Goldberg responded by saying she has no plans to feud with any of her co-hosts. However, an article in the L.A. Times Show Tracker Column on July 26, 2007, had the following quote: "She is exactly what the show needs,” said Hollywood publicist Howard Bragman. “She is a beloved brand name; she is outspoken; she has done this before, she is a person of color; she is as far left as Rosie; she lives in New York; and she can kick Elizabeth Hasselbeck’s ass."

Prior to the official announcement that Goldberg would be joining the program, various media outlets reported that both Goldberg and Sherri Shepherd would be added to the panel. In Touch magazine reported that a deal for Shepherd to join The View fell through after negotiations went awry over a salary dispute. Along with Shepherd, The View was reportedly also in talks with radio personality Jacque Reid and comedian Kathy Griffin to join the show. ABC offered the job to Kathy Griffin when negotiations with Shepherd fell through. Griffin didn't accept the offer because the salary was too low.

On October 16, 2007, it was announced that Elisabeth Hasselbeck will be beginning her maternity leave as of October 23, 2007. Hasselbeck stated on October 22, 2007 that she will return when the show returns from holiday hiatus in Janary 2008. When Elisabeth Hasselbeck goes on maternity leave her seat will be filled by a rotating guest cast. Some show insiders confirm that Hasselbeck won't return or will be asked not to come back but also admit those same rumors have circulated for years.[28] An article in the Boston Globe a week later stated: "When Elisabeth Hasselbeck bade farewell to her cohosts on "The View" Tuesday, it was all hugs, well-wishes, and baby-product endorsements. But as Hasselbeck begins her 2 1/2-month maternity leave, the political landscape is shifting, as well.

It went on to say: "Hasselbeck, the apple-cheeked blonde with the football-player husband, consistently draws a brand of hatred from the left that Hillary Clinton generates from the right; "screechmonger" is one of the more printable slurs hurled at her from the blogosphere.

Michael Vick discussion

The new season opened with its share of controversy when Goldberg commented on the role football player Michael Vick played in the recent dog-fighting scandal. Of the Atlanta Falcons quarterback she said, "He's from the South, from the Deep South.... This is part of his cultural upbringing.... For a lot of people, dogs are sport... Instead of just saying (Vick) is a beast and he's a monster, this is a kid who comes from a culture where this is not questioned."

Goldberg defended herself the following day by explaining she was attempting to explain Vick's actions from a cultural view but was in no way condoning or excusing his actions.


Controversies

The View achieved higher ratings with Rosie O'Donnell's outspoken and candid nature moving the show into a newsworthy spectrum from traditional daytime talk fare. As a big-name talent she drew criticism for her opinions while keeping the show's "buzz factor up."[31] The downside of being spontaneous and putting her views in front of a national audience was that such remarks were often subject of controversy and criticism, especially by conservative commentators and other media outlets, who recirculated comments and clips from the show.

Kelly Ripa/Clay Aiken

On November 20, 2006, Rosie O'Donnell commented on Live with Regis and Kelly co-host Kelly Ripa's comment to guest co-host Clay Aiken when he put his hand over her mouth as if to stop her from talking.[32] Ripa apparently didn't appreciate his action and he observed, "Oh, I'm in trouble." Ripa responded, "No, I just don't know where that hand's been, Honey." O'Donnell said the comment "struck me as a little odd"[33] adding "to me that's a homophobic remark. If that was a straight man... if that was a guy that she didn't question his sexuality, she would have said a different thing."[34] Within minutes Ripa was on the phone and responded to O'Donnell's comments by saying "I have three kids (and) he's shaking hands with everybody in the audience. It's cold and flu season." O'Donnell also added that in three months on the show she's never before said something was homophobic. "I feel for the kid," O'Donnell said of Aiken, who has been dogged by questions about his sexuality.[33][35][36] The next night at the American Music Awards Aiken and co-presenter Tori Spelling spoofed the incident, with Spelling putting her hand over his mouth and saying "I'll tell you where that hand's been later." is the 324th day of the year (325th in leap years) in the Gregorian calendar. ...

Accusations of anti-Catholicism

Joy Behar and Rosie O'Donnell were accused of anti-Catholicism on occasion. On April 19, 2007 the all-woman panel discussed the Supreme Court ruling on Gonzales v. Carhart decision upholding the Partial-Birth Abortion Ban Act, O'Donnell stated "Everyone agrees partial birth abortion is horrific. It’s horrific for anyone who has to decide it." She went on to quote Gloria Steinem, "If men could get pregnant abortion would be a sacrament." She later added, "You know what concerns me? How many Supreme Court judges are Catholic?", adding "How about separation of church and state in America?". Conservative talk show host Laura Ingraham urged her listeners to send protest emails to ABC for what she called O'Donnell's "anti-Catholic bigotry."[37] William A. Donohue, president of the Catholic League for Religious and Civil Rights has accused O'Donnell and Behar of engaging in anti-Catholicism on The View and blamed Walters for allowing them to do so.

Danny DeVito interview

On November 29, 2006 actor Danny DeVito made an appearance on The View to promote his movie Deck the Halls. DeVito who had been out all night with actor George Clooney admitted to drinking before his appearance saying, "I knew it was the last seven limoncellos that was going to get me." DeVito slurred his words throughout the interview and told incoherent stories to the amusement of the audience. When asked by O'Donnell if he had been to sleep yet, DeVito responded saying, "I don't know."

At one point his words were bleeped after apparently using an obscenity when talking about President George W. Bush.

DeVito ended the interview by sitting on O'Donnell's lap. The interview made its way to late night talk shows and around the Internet with most pundits commenting that DeVito had been drunk during the interview. Later in the week DeVito's publicist told ABC News that DeVito had reached out to apologize to Walters about his appearance.[39] George Walker Bush (born July 6, 1946) is the forty-third and current President of the United States of America, originally inaugurated on January 20, 2001. ...

Mocking Chinese language

On December 5, 2006, O'Donnell made a comment in reference to the November 29, 2006 appearance on The View by Danny DeVito. O'Donnell was amazed that the controversy had become such an international media news item,[41] and joked that it was being talked about as far away as China. "You know, you can imagine in China it's like, 'Ching-chong, ching-chong. Danny DeVito. Ching-chong, ching-chong-chong. Drunk. The View.

The remarks sparked a backlash, as many interpreted her comments as a "mockery of the Chinese language."[43] O'Donnell responded via her publicist that she is a comedian in addition to being a talk show co-host and that was part of her sense of humor.

Which I was like, `Really? I didn't know that.'"[45] "To anyone who was offended at my Chinese, Asian, pseudo-Japanese, sounded a little Yiddish accent that I was doing, you know, it was never [my] intent to mock, and I'm sorry for those who felt hurt or were teased on the playground.... But I'm also gonna give you a fair warning that there's a good chance I'll do something like that again, probably in the next week — not on purpose. Only 'cause it's how my brain works."[45][46] Karen Lincoln Michel, president-elect of Unity: Journalists of Color Inc., said O'Donnell's remarks "really didn't sound like an apology to me."

Donald Trump feud

On December 20, 2006, O'Donnell criticized billionaire Donald Trump for holding a press conference to allegedly use Miss USA, Tara Conner's scandal to "generate publicity for the Miss USA Pageant" (to which he owns the rights) by announcing he was giving her a second chance.[47] Connor, who had violated pageant guidelines by clubbing and drinking underage,[48] having "wild nights" and alleged sexual liaisons including kissing and "dirty dancing" with Miss Teen USA Katie Blair in public[47] entered a rehab clinic and kept her title. O'Donnell commented that due to Trump's multiple marital affairs and questionable business bankruptcies he was not a moral authority for young people in America. Stated O'Donnell, "Left the first wife, had an affair.

In response, Trump began a media blitz[50] in which he appeared on various television shows either in person or by phone threatening to sue O'Donnell, calling her mean-spirited names[50], threatening to take away her partner Kelli[51] and that Barbara Walters regretted hiring her.[52] Walters responded that both Trump and O'Donnell are highly opinionated people and that Trump has never filed for bankruptcy, but several of his casino companies did but are now out of bankruptcy. She also denied that she was unhappy with O'Donnell saying "I have never regretted, nor do I now, the hiring of Rosie O'Donnell."[52] Popular press redirects here; note that the University of Wisconsin Press publishes under the imprint The Popular Press.

Anti-Iraq War comments

On May 1, 2007 during a segment of The View, O'Donnell, prompted by guest co-host Ricki Lake, explained that some members of the armed forces joined because they were fleeing poverty and wanted to further pursue their education through the G.I. Bill, adding that there are an increasing number of convicted felons who currently serve in the US military.[55] When challenged by co-host Elisabeth Hasselbeck, O'Donnell stated she "loved the military" and wanted to see them back home. is the 121st day of the year (122nd in leap years) in the Gregorian calendar. ...

On May 17, 2007, O'Donnell rhetorically asked, "655,000 Iraqi civilians dead. Who are the terrorists?" She further explained, "If you were in Iraq and another country, the United States, the richest in the world, invaded your country and killed 655,000 of your citizens, what would you call us?"[56] Conservative commentators claimed O'Donnell paralleled American troops as terrorists, while O'Donnell maintained she was referring to the Bush administration. Hasselbeck and O'Donnell were later involved in a heated argument on May 23, 2007 regarding the U.S. invading Iraq and the resulting occupation.[57]. is the 137th day of the year (138th in leap years) in the Gregorian calendar. ...

7 World Trade Center collapse

On March 26, 2007, in a conversation about the misleading information preceding US invasion of Iraq, O'Donnell stated that 7 World Trade Center had been imploded, in line with 9/11 conspiracy theories.[58] When asked by Hasslebeck who she thought was responsible, she commented that she had no idea, but according to the Miami Herald she suggested in her blog that it was done to destroy evidence of the corporate financial scandals at Enron and WorldCom.[59] Seven World Trade Center housed the offices of government agencies like the Central Intelligence Agency,[60] the Federal Bureau of Investigation, and the United States Securities and Exchange Commission.

Within days Popular Mechanics posted a response to O'Donnell's statements on its website "for those interested in what physics and demolition experts have said regarding WTC 7’s collapse, as detailed in our book Debunking 9/11 Myths. The potential explanation included that 7 World Trade Center housed New York City's emergency command bunker, so there were large fuel tanks throughout the building that fed generators by pressurized lines.[65] The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) is still investigating the collapse.

Before The View

  • Leave It To The Girls was a program that aired in various incarnations over four decades. Beginning on radio in 1945, the show began to simulcast on television in 1948. The premise was simple: three celebrity women discussed a relationship topic from a woman’s point of view. A fourth member of the panel was a man, to represent the male point of view. The program ceased production in 1963. However a new version was resurrected in 1981 (under the title Leave It To The Women). This time taboo subjects of the 1980s began to be discussed, in an effort to be more contemporary. The change in subject matter did not help the ratings, and the show ended in 1982.
  • A similar show was produced in the 1960s Girl Talk. Hosted and moderated by Virginia Graham, it consisted of three celebrity women discussing current events, politics, women’s issues and their feelings about each other. Guests like Joan Crawford, Bette Davis, Lee Remick and Totie Fields would freely express their opinions.
  • Barbara Walters hosted a similar program during the early and mid-1970s called Not For Women Only. A panel of four experts, moderated by Walters, discussed serious topical issues of the day.
  • Equal Time was a political discussion show from a woman’s point of view featuring commentators and Washington insiders. Two women co-hosted the CNBC program, each representing the liberal and conservative viewpoint. Representing the liberal viewpoint as co-host were Jane Wallace (1993-1994), Dee Dee Myers (1995-1997), and Stephanie Miller (1998-1999). Representing the conservative viewpoint as co-host were Mary Matalin (1993-1996) and Bay Buchanan (1996-1999). Torie Clarke was a regular fill-in when Buchanan was absent.

After The View

The View format has been replicated by other television shows, both in the United States:

  • In 2002, CBS News's The Early Show eliminated the traditional morning-show formula of a male/female anchor team with a weatherman and a newsreader. The revamped version had four hosts: Harry Smith, Hannah Storm, Julie Chen and Rene Syler. CBS tried to hire then View co-host Vieira to head up the broadcast, but she declined.[67]. The four-anchor format lasted for four years, and ratings increased slightly. Despite that, CBS was still not satisfied with the numbers. In December 2006, anchor Rene Syler announced her departure from the program in what is expected to be a series of changes to the four-person team.

Accusations of bias

The View has been accused of a variety of forms of bias over the years.


While diverse in terms of host age and backgrounds, the show has been criticised by many conservatives for what is seen as a liberal bias and a lack of diversity in political views. However, the show has had several conservative guest hosts (e.g., Ann Coulter, Dennis Miller, Kathie Lee Gifford) and regular co-host Hasselbeck is an outspoken pro-life conservative.[69] In the April 9, 2007, issue of People magazine, Hasselbeck stated that she and O'Donnell get along well off-stage, that they e-mail frequently, and that she credits O'Donnell with inspiring her to speak out more on the program.

Joy Behar has said that conservatives are "so annoying", but that she would likewise take on liberals if they were in power.[71] Nevertheless, conservatives contend that Hasselbeck is the only conservative on the show, as opposed to the liberal presence of Behar and O'Donnell.


There also have been accusations of religious and racial bias levied against the program. And, one scheduled guest, Barry Manilow, refused to appear on the show for a political reason.He was being interviewed by a a conservative Elizabeth Hasselbeck instead of the more liberal Whoopi, Joy or Barbara: "LOS ANGELES, Sept 17 (Reuters Life!) - Pop singer Barry Manilow, a major Democratic fundraiser, said on Monday he has scrapped plans to appear on the television talk show "The View," because he did not want to be interviewed by its conservative co-host." However, the article further stated: "But a source close to "The View" said "we canceled him," because producers refused to comply with Manilow's "completely disrespectful" demands." http://uk.reuters.com/article/lifestyleMolt/idUKN1734188820070917


Parodies

Since the show's premiere, The View has been the subject of numerous parodies. One such was a recurring skit on Saturday Night Live in the late 1990s, portraying Jones Reynolds, Vieira, Behar and Walters as jealous older women and Matenopoulos as a simple-minded bimbo who was consistently being punished for making stupid comments. Barbara Walters was one of Cheri Oteri's best known impersonations during her tenure on Saturday Night Live. In 2005, MADtv parodied the show in a sketch, exaggerating the women's speech as simultaneous bickering and featuring Michael McDonald as a farmer treating the women as hens, tossing chicken-feed on the ground and producing eggs from the women's seats. It was also parodied on the animated show Family Guy, where the women were heard clucking like chickens, with Jones Reynolds laying an egg. They were also parodied in The Simpsons with the show being called "Afternoon Yak" where the members of Afternoon Yak resemble the hosts of The View. The studio audience has also been compared to seals, as there are many breaks for applause during the show. This article is about the American television series. ...
