Oprah Winfrey’s Network Axes ‘The Rosie Show’

NEW YORK (AP) — Oprah Winfrey’s OWN network is pulling the curtain on “The Rosie Show” after five months on the air.

The show premiered in October to about 500,000 viewers but lost about half that audience within days of its debut.

Recently, it changed the format from taping before a studio audience to a one-on-one interview setting with celebrities such as Kathy Griffin, Chelsea Handler and former Illinois first lady Patti Blagojevich.

In a statement released by OWN, Winfrey thanked O’Donnell. She called O’Donnell “an incredible partner” who worked to put on the best show “every single day.”

O’Donnell also was quoted as saying she loved working with Winfrey and in Chicago and “wished” the show had better ratings.

The final episode will air March 30.

    .. I was hoping to get Rosie to read my memoir, have me on her show and while there, recruit her to play my Mom in the film version of Webster Groves (she’d be perfect!)…well, maybe I can still get her to play Mom, 1 out of 3 ain’t bad…but now I’m not sure I can get her to give Oprah a copy of Webster Groves,..?

    darned, darned, darned, darn…..!
