THE View fans have blasted Whoopi Goldberg and her co-hosts for taking this entire week off, after only just returning from a luxury Bahamas getaway.
The talk show cast was there to celebrate the program’s 25th anniversary, after it first premiered back in 1997.
The View aired from the Bahamas most of last week, before showing a repeat episode on Friday.
The reruns continued on Monday and Tuesday and will last the rest of this week, angering those at home hoping to catch a new broadcast.
One upset viewer wanting to watch a new episode on Tuesday wrote: “The View is on hiatus… what am I suppose to do???”
Another angry fan blasted: “Why the hell is july 5 show a damn repeat, you were just in the goddamn bahamas. Do your jobs.”
A third sarcastically wondered: “Will they be on live or will they have more time off?”

“I was hoping you’d be live today, but it’s apparently going to ‘encore’ shows all week,” a fourth enraged viewer tweeted.
They added: “With taking 5 weeks off beginning in August, I would like more live shows. You must get about 3 months off thruout the year.”
Fans have been fuming over the break since Friday when the first of the repeat episodes began.
Still, viewers had hoped at the time that it was just a one-day situation and not the beginning of a multi-day hiatus.

One upset fan tweeted: “Literally all the money in the world and they couldn’t get 5 days of shows out of that trip to the Bahamas.
“Make that make sense.”
A second blasted the show, writing: “Ya’ll are in a paradise, and you couldn’t give us 1 more day?”
Another said after finding out it wasn’t a new episode: “Damnit #TheView is a freakin repeat…. Should’ve known.”
A fourth wrote: “Good Morning Fam! Wait, a rerun?? Are y’all serious?!?”
Not having new episodes last Friday and this whole week only upset viewers further, after they were already angered over the fact that the cast had hosted from the Bahamas in the first place.
Viewers slammed the hosts for flaunting their wealth while others were “struggling.”
Whoopi and her co-hosts were seen on social media living it up at the beach, relaxing in shaded lounge chairs, enjoying decadent drinks, and tasting delicious foods.
One fan sarcastically wrote on the TV personalities’ trip: “Awwww. How nice.
“Those who are struggling to put food on their tables and gas in their cars can see a vacation spot first hand on TV.”
fFans blasted The View for teasing them about the “epic announcement” in May of the hosts’ getaway and for flaunting the hosts’ vacation in their faces.
One upset Twitter user wrote: “For their big announcement, the View announced that they’re going to the Bahamas.
“They know all of us can’t go, but we can go to their site for information on tickets…… meanwhile I’ll be here, working from home while they enjoy their paid vacation.”
They added sarcastically: “Yay for everyone.”
Another said: “So let me get this right? I waited 58 minutes for this Epic Announcement which I thought was about a new co-host.
“And all y’all did was tell us about how ‘y’all’ are going to the Bahamas & how does that benefit us as the viewers, y’all didn’t even offer a sweepstakes?”
