The View
finally came back this week after a month-long hiatus. It was Whoopi's first week on the job and I have to say, I'm not impressed. Don't get me wrong, Whoopi is great and smart and everything, but the girls talk over her, and I guess she has too many manners to do the same back. Hopefully she'll get so annoyed that she'll adapt. Even though this week was her big debut, she was, in my mind anyway, upstaged by guest Larry David, and Monday's guest co-host, 10-year-old Maria Lark. After the jump, let's trash the new yellow-y brown set.

OK, so how fucking ugly is the new set? Also, did you notice that the stylist has begun matching all the girls outfits?

It's like they're in the Jackson 5 or Destiny's Child or something. Me thinks Mama Knowles would have made them sexier, though. Or at least given them shirts with longer cleavage.

Also, I'm not liking the return of the wooden table. I miss the future-y glass table of the Rosie days. Aren't Whoopi's dreadlocks organic enough? Also hating the colors of new set. It seriously looks like baby mustard diarrhea. If you've ever changed an infant's diaper, you know what I mean. (I used to babysit back in the day.) I call craps this shade "blondies."

And with that diffused lighting on Babs, you can barely fucking tell she's there. She and Joy totally blended into the background in those outfits.

Also, I know that Sherri Shepherd is expected to take over the final permanent spot on the panel, but how much would it rule if they gave it to this little girl:

Without being mean, I'd like to say that she fills the void that Rosie left. Alright fine, I'll say it: This chick is like the fucking Founder and CEO of the Future Lesbians of Tomorrow club.
