Rosie Show Dead After One Episode

Chevy Chase can feel better now. Even his Hindenburg of a show lasted longer than the left-wing klaxon Rosie O'Donnell's Rosie Live, which appears to be dead after a single episode:

Rosie O'Donnell's homage to television variety shows of the 1970s, "Rosie Live," seems destined to be a one-night-only event. On the "Ask Ro" feature on the Web site,, Ms. O'Donnell wrote, "there will b no more" in response to a question about the future of the show, which was broadcast on NBC on Wednesday. The special was supposed to be a trial balloon and could have led to a series, depending on its success.

Rosie blames "bad ratings and reviews" for her show's rapid demise. Maybe the Queen of Nice should go back to screeching about how much she hates Christians on morning talk shows.

Rosie ODonnell
Oddly, people just don't seem to find her appealing.

On a tip from LT Nixon.

"Bad ratings and reviews"... Always blame someone else. Of course the ratings and reviews couldn't have been earned fairly. Must be that pesky VRWC. She should be given a time slot just because she deserves one as much as anyone else. If still nobody will watch her, some of us must be selected to be strapped down with our eyeballs propped open as in "Clockwork Orange" and forced to watch. It's only fair. Isn't Congress supposed to be working on something like that?

yes, in Obamaland, we will be forced to watch Rosie & her ILK, just wait until after Jan 20th when Bush is no longer around to defend us

Having Rosie the Pig hosting the show is why it got "bad ratings and reviews".
If the producers had picked a host with some actual talent, style and attraction it might have done well.
Writers who can actually write funny skits probably would have been a good idea too.

Such a fall. I used to like her brash style when she hosted Stand Up Spotlight, many years ago. Sad to see her living what she once joked about; "Mmmm, yes! More Kool-Aide, Mr Jones." When did her mind slip the tracks; the San Francisco gay marriage putsch?

I really don't understand how she has a career.

She's supposed to be a comedian, right? I never hear her say anything funny. Rather, she's always spouting angry rants at anyone who dares disagree with her. I suppose that's funny in it's own way, but geeze.

What goes around comes around. You will be able to see Rosie on U Tube Sucking Down the suds, amoung other things, and chomin'down them tater chips. She needs to be put out to patsure so she can do some real grazing. MOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

Time to go cow tippin' boys!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

She doesn't, Jaeson. She used to, but that was then, and this is now.

I once saw a comedy performance of ventriloquist Jeff Dunham. Once part included himself and a puppet named "Walter." During the segment Walter declared he was running for president and that he would be taking questions. One person said Walter shouldn't run because he didn't know anything about politics. Walter's reply:"Well neither does Rosie O'Donnel and you can't get her to shut up unless you stuff cake in her mouth."

I thought this was a very strange idea from the beginning. Not the variety show so much but having Rosie host it. "Who wants to watch that?" I asked myself. No one, as it turns out.

When she was "just a comedian" back in the day, she was pretty good. Then she was seduced by the Dark Side of the Force, aka chronic leftism, and she went completely off the rails.

She's shot her guns (metaphorically speaking). The big publicity woo-woo from her gay wedding is now not even a blip. Her coming out is old news. Her wild (and incredibly ignorant) political views are a "so what". Her cranky behavior on "The View" is a distant memory...hell, even The Donald doesn't talk about her anymore.

Sorry Rosie, the stuff you were using to keep yourself in the public eye is washed up, and whatever talent you had has been tarnished by your personal ugliness (not talking "looks" either).

Please go away.

i would just say "that b*tch deserves this!" but i'm not a cursing woman and it would be an insult to decent dogs everywhere!

"... homage to television variety shows of the 1970's ..."?

Man, the variety show was practically extinct by the 1970's. She should've taken a lesson from the variety shows of the 1950's and 1960's and offered entertainment.

"Bad To The Bone?"

Posted by: Red Barr at December 1, 2008 5:14 PM

Darn it!
She is sooo talented but unfortuantely, I was continiously throwing up in my mouth while I was watching the show. Might have been the fat.

Posted by: dave at December 2, 2008 6:57 PM

Wow..I watched this and thought it was bad. So bad that I had to drink myself into a coma in hopes that I would black out and forget it all. Not the case.

Oh well. Maybe she can still host such venues as "my mouth is the holland tunnel." or maybe get her on time warp and make a show out of a jiggle or something? It would last at least 30 minutes and be more entertaining than the stuff she put on for this variety show.

Rock on Rosey. You SUCK
