    The View needs to rethink its platform. It has developed into a racially overtoned commercial for the Democratic Party. I am a Democrate, yet I long for a couple of Republicans To add some sort of balance to this dying show. Goldberg called Rotten houses action Murder even though he was cleared by a jury of his peers. Hostins racial overtones are disgraceful and Joy bullies anyone who disagrees with her. Thank goodness for Sarah who seems the only balanced host on the show. Time for some changes and balance the political affilations, or this is just ABC's version of Fox news for Democrates.

    The Wretched was added to Hulu on July 31st.

  • VonFraunk  

    A question, why doesn't the TV series "Into the Dark" (Season 2) appear in your search bar (only pc games appear), and yet incongruously, you have published woefully inaccurate airing dates for various episodes? I'd respectfully suggest that you do it right or don't do it at all.

    Is there a reason there isn't a sort function to this list? I feel it would improve it's usefulness greatly.
