On The View‘s season premiere, Whoopi Goldberg joked about the shuffling of hosts

Goldberg noticed that the cups no longer contain photos of the co-hosts. “They’re cups, but where are the pictures of the faces?” said Whoopi. “We used to have faces because people stuck around.” That prompted Joy Behar to say: “Well, this is in case they want to get rid of any of us. They can just pull this off!” PLUS: Candace Cameron Bure fears “mean” liberals, wants her fans to stand up for her on social media.

Stephen Colbert’s ability to talk to people is his biggest advantage over Jimmy Fallon

“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. There’s a lot of overblown mythology in that narrative anyway. I’ll just say this: The ‘talk’ part of the talk show has been somewhat devalued of late, and it will be good to have someone who can do both halves of the job description. If you’ve ever watched Colbert, you know that he is a formidable interviewer. He is lightning-quick on his feet. He is curious. He listens. He can be ruthless when he needs to be.
