Oprah Winfrey Network (OWN) Gives Rosie O’ Donnell & ‘The Rosie Show’ the Boot

 

That did not take very long, after just five short months Oprah Winfrey Network, OWN, is giving Rosie O’ Donnell and  ’The Rosie Show’ the axe. According to reports it was because of plunging TV ratings. In five months Rosie went from a daily average of viewership from 500,000 to 150,000. Plunging, one might say free-fall.

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.

As reported by the NY Times, it appears the show and its producers were in total disarray.All this chaos in just five months? Oh how it must have been a joy to work on this project.

The Chicago Tribune reported this month that Ms. O’Donnell was under contract until 2013. The newspaper asserted that the show suffered from a “top-heavy organization plagued by turnover among executive producers during the show’s brief history.” It also cited a “fundamental culture clash” between the producers of Ms. Winfrey’s former program in Chicago and other producers hired specifically for “The Rosie Show.”
