As we all know this program is based on "Star Jones" book "Satan's Sisters". Now Star Jones was a "View" host for 9 years and had a notorious final year on that show. So I expected to be a behind the scenes drama of a daytime talk show. What this show ended up being was a "Desperate Housewives" wannabe. The results by the time the final episode ended were a show where everyone was over the top and nothing grounded the story. Here is the official breakdown of the show
The gossip-driven, "The Lunch Hour." It's a long-running, hit talk show for women, filled with conversations about life, love, politics and, of course, juicy gossip. But off-camera, a sinister side of the industry emerges -- a backstage world where power struggles, diva fits and steamy affairs are the norm. As the drama of "The Lunch Hour" makes news, everyone is talking about it, including the cast members of the actual hit talk show "The View," who guest star as themselves.
Now if the show had ONE likable cast member it would have something to anchor too. What we get is actress's going way over the top in every scene and just doesn't work.
The worse offender in this happens to be Fiona Gubelmann who plays a conservative woman. She plays this so broad that you hate her and not in a good way! This character is clearly modeled after Elisabeth Hasselbeck. Fiona Gubelmann however plays the part as Kristen Wiig imitating Elisabeth Hasselbeck.
If this show has a 2nd season it should just focus about the drama behind a daytime talk show and the backstabbing that happens on a show. "Daytime Divas" the first season went in too many directions Maybe next time they will have a map?!
