On The View‘s Season Premiere, Whoopi Goldberg Joked about the Shuffling of Hosts

“Colbert knows how to do something Fallon has clearly relegated to the lower tier of his show: talk to people,” says Jack Mirkinson. He adds: “It’s fashionable these days to mourn the supposed lost golden age of late night talk, when intellectuals sparred with each other and coruscating wit was the order of the day, so I won’t.
