Have you missed Rosie O'Donnell being on The View? If so, you'll be able to hear Rosie in your home, car, at work or on go. The ex The View co-host has landed a daily show on Sirius XM satellite radio. According to Zap2it Rosie Radio "will feature the 47-year-old comedian-actress discussing news and entertainment as well as chatting with occasional guests."
I can only wonder if she'll have Elisabeth Hasselbeck on as one of her first guests. For some reason I doubt that will happen.
My absence from Daytime Confidential lately has not been due to the usual business of family and work taking up a lot of my time, but rather a certain lack energy to post about practically any of the daytime serials that clog up my DVR from day to day. This is neither a positive nor a negative thing because there are frequent periods throughout the year when shows kind of coast along and do their their thing, usually between sweeps.
At these times, there is little for the viewer — if that viewer is me — to get all worked up about this plot twist, that character's action, some couple or another or even a whole show's direction. Normally, this state of affairs hits one or two shows at a time. Every once in a while like the last couple of weeks, the stars align and all the serials get caught in the same momentum of drift. All that is required of us is to watch and see where it all goes.
In that spirit, my brain plays a little game of soap opera hopscotch, taking in odds and ends big and small. There is no great elaboration on anything here, just a quick rundown of things I like and not like so much. Your mileage may vary... READ MORE
Has the apocalypse begun? It must be really chilly down in Hades since former co-hosts of The View, Rosie O'Donnell and Star Jones, were spotted out having dinner. The former rivals were dining at the 2009 Passing It On Benefit After Party at Tony DiNapoli’s in New York City Monday night. On April 16, the ladies were also part of a charity auction to benefit the Skating with the Stars Gala, for which Jones is co-chair. The winner of that auction got a chance to share a lunch date with Jones and O'Donnell and pose any questions they want. Wouldn't you like to be a fly on the wall when that goes down? READ MORE
So this is what it looks like when former The View co-host Star Jones has a rumble in the jungle with ex-boss Barbara Walters and former moderator/enemy Rosie O'Donnell. I'm all down for rocking the curly/wavy look (I myself have curly/wavy hair) but someone really needs to tell Star to throw some pommade in that puppy! Take your best shot.
Rosie O'Donnell's much hyped variety show, Rosie Live has now become a corpse according to the fomer daytime talk show host. After one show, O'Donnell wrote on her blog:
there will b no more. no ratings. bad reviews. yet still – a thrill 4 me.
I guess it doesn't pay to trash talk Barbara Walters when trying to make a comeback. As posted earlier by our own Jamey, O'Donnell's ratings for the show were a dud at just 5 million viewers for someone that was considered a ratings darling.
Former daytime talker Rosie O'Donnell's new variety show Rosie Live, belly flopped during its NBC premiere on Thanksgiving Eve. The show, which had been heralded as the first of a return to the variety skein format made popular by Ed Sullivan, Sonny and Cher and Carol Burnett, tied with the recently canceled ABC series Pushing Daisies for third place that night.
Premiere night ratings for Rosie Live were at 1.2, with a 4 share of the coveted women 18-49 demo, according to Nielsen Media Research. That translates to a dismal 5 million people tuning in to see if Rosie could recapture the title of Queen of Nice.
That sound you hear is Elisabeth Hasselbeck laughing her prissy ass off through the streets of Manhattan, while Barbara Walters asks passerbys if they've read her new book Audition.
