    Ahhhh so Rosie Odonnell is going to give the old variety show theme another run. I hope she's successful! I love that format. Dolly Parton was going to do it a few yr ago (Ithink they filmed a few episodes and it didn't run).
    Personally I think she'll be a goo host as she's done stand up and would be no stranger to dealing one on one w/an audience.
    Is anyone else excited that something else fun could be coming to tv?

    I just saw the commercial during SNL.

    I'm not sure how well it will do. For me, she became sort of annoying during the whole "The View" debacle. I don't know if i could see myself tuning in...

    That's why I posted Prince Will. But I think it could be good if done right.

    haha...that's a talk show waiting to happen. i can be the first guest. :p

    and well, it seems more like a desperate bid for ratings for NBC who's been lagging behind, but at least the whole variety show aspect is different than what's on these days. I'm still thinking it'll be DOA though. Rosie just alienated so much people after the View. Did they say when it'll premiere?

    I know. :) I liked Rosie and her talk show. It used to be alot of fun. Plus, her faux obsession with Tom Cruise was hilarious. and you go to NBC every week? cool. :cool: geez, i hope i get accepted by NYU for Spring so i can be in New York.

    Anyways, after cancelling Lipstick Jungle and My Own Worst Enemy, ER's final season and sagging ratings in hit shows like Heroes, i'm sure things are dire. I'm not sure this show will make a difference....but hey, if Deal or No Deal was a big hit, why can't this be? :tongue:

    Well I hope it is and I hope LJ doesn't get cancelled. But as I said b4 I just saw the commercil. I don't know if Rosie's show is gonna be filled w/established artists ala Ed Sullivan or wether she'll be having undiscovered artists on o magicians or wrestlers or anything about the show's format. We'll see. I just hope it's fun.

    Yeah, I just saw the that too, and hope it will be a success.
    She can annoy me sometimes, but she is a good comic, has
    the respect of her audience and can control them. If she
    returns to her old format and personality, I think it will be a
    big success. I wish her success.

    *LOVES it* great show!

    Best of luck to Rosie. She does a tremendous amount of charity work and was one of the few celebrities that donated a million dollars for the people that lost family in 911.

    I don't care about The View situation, she raised the profile of the show and thus made it more entertaining.

    She is what she is, I love me some Rosie.

    While I like the variety show format and think television is lacking without it, I can’t stand Rosie starting with her sucker-punch attack on Tom Selleck over guns when he appeared on her show to promote a movie several years ago, her no-clue ultra-left-politics and especially the nonstop wacky conspiracy theories on 9/11.

    I wouldn’t watch her show just because she makes my skin crawl much like I don’t watch anything with Tom Cruise in it because of his zombie like affliction known as Scientology.

    I haven't seen a variety show in years! I used to like several of them when I was a kid. Yep, I'd like to see this, if it's as good as the ones from my childhood (I especially remember liking Carol Burnett's and Flip Wilson's shows.)

    And yes, I'd like to see Lipstick Jungle stay on, too.
