Despite the pairing with Griffin, I think the producers of "The View" tried to be kind to Kate. Did you notice that when they used her to go to a break, instead of having her "tease" to the next segment after the upcoming commercial break, they simply had her hold the microphone while an audience member voiced the "when-we-come-back" lines. If an amateur flubbed the words, so what? If Kate flubbed it, the result would be embarrassing. They spared her such a moment.
