It was probably doomed from the start. Oprah Winfrey made a big bet on Rosie O’ Donnell in creating her own talk show on OWN. But the ratings just weren’t there.
I have watched a few episodes and to be honest, it wasn’t interesting at all. Rosie O’ Donnell lost the audience she once had. She keeps injecting her political views in her show and no one wants to hear it.
“I thank Rosie from the bottom of my heart for joining me on this journey” – Oprah Winfrey
“I wish the show was able to attract more viewers — but it did not” – Rosie O’ Donnell
Last Friday, it was announced that OWN was cancelling the Rosie O’ Donnell show due to low viewership. Rosie is moving back to New York accoding to the Washington Post.
I think that the time slot also had a lot to do with the show’s meager viewership. Who wants to watch Rosie at dinner time? I didn’t.
