Whether you're looking to have a virtual watch party or book club with your friends or simply catch up on some must-see and must-read content, co-hosts Whoopi Goldberg, Joy Behar, Sunny Hostin, Meghan McCain and host of "GMA3: Strahan, Sara & Keke" and current guest co-host of "The View" Sara Haines share their favorite picks to get into while maintaining physical distance amid the pandemic.
