Entertainment Weekly has named Elisabeth Hasselbeck and Sherri Shepherd among the Top 25 Smartest People in TV saying that the ladies at The View "put the shrew in shrewd this election year, juicing ratings by pumping up their political banter."
EW's Top 25 Smartest People in TV also includes other such notables as Tyra Banks, Marc Cherry of Desperate Housewives, JJ Abrams of LOST and Fringe, Josh Schwartz of Gossip Girl and Chuck and Tyler Perry.
Barbara Walters came out swinging in her oh-so-polite away saying that she "resents" a couple ex co-hosts dumping on The View for their own publicity.
Translation: The political season is over, what better way to keep ratings at all time highs than to take on the big R and big S again?
Sherri Shepherd provided the most poignant post election moment on The View today. No limitations.
