The audience at home is arguably just as (if not more) opinionated than the cast of The View. The question is: What are all these deeply opinionated viewers doing for the overall ratings of the talk show this season? Did The View do alright during the latest season of the show? Or, did ratings take a nose dive? Let’s take a closer look.
Where Does The View Ratings Sit For The Season?
According to Variety, fans of The View have nothing to worry about as far as the show not continuing to move forward. For two years in a row, the talk show is the “most-watched” daytime talk show on the network. Furthermore, the talk show continues to hold its own when compared to other talk shows such as Dr. Phil and Today with Hoda & Jenna.
During the 2021-2022 TV season, The View took the number one slot for total viewers. The only area that the show didn’t dominate in is competing for the 25-54 demographic viewers. The number one talk show with that demographic belongs to Live with Kelly and Ryan.
The View and Dr. Phil ended up tying when it came to households. The View raked in an average of approximately 2.411 million viewers. Dr. Phil trailed behind with 2.405 million. Live with Kelly and Ryan landed in third place with 2.357 million. Today Third Hour trailed behind the group in fourth place with 2.144 million viewers. The ranking for other talk shows during the 2021-2022 season were as follows: GMA3, Today with Hoda & Jenna, The Talk, The Ellen DeGeneres Show, and The Kelly Clarkson Show.
When does a new season start?
Fans of The View aren’t exactly thrilled to be watching re-runs right now. In fact, many wonder when they can expect Season 26 to start. While it doesn’t have a slated premiere date yet, Season 26 of The View will kick off sometime next month. The talk show will be adding two lovely women to the chatfest including Alyssa Farah Griffin and Ana Navarro.
