“Revitalized `Regis and Kelly’ successfully mixes Kelly’s youthful energy with curmudgeonly Regis. Besides, I have soft spots in my heart for Kelly, who was cast on `All My Children’ when I was head of ABC Daytime, and for Regis, whom I worked with at Lifetime.”
Mary Alice Dwyer-Dobbin, executive in charge of production, P&G Productions.
“I vote for Rosie because she’s been such a super champion of and advocate for children. She loves kids, and so do we.”
Deborah Forte, president, Scholastic Entertainment
“`The View’ is my instant pick. It’s one of the few shows on TV, in any daypart, that can be considered truly special. It’s smart, funny, sometimes eye-opening and drenched in personality.”
