'The Rosie Show' Canceled

Poor Rosie O'Donnell. After much fanfare and expectation, her talk show, which debuted last October on OWN, has been canceled due to piss-poor ratings. The show's first episode drew 1.5 million views, but viewership steadily declined. It's now averaging 200,000 viewers each night. In a statement Oprah said: "I thank Rosie from the bottom of my heart for joining me on this journey. She has been an incredible partner, working to deliver the best possible show every single day. As I have learned in the last 15 months, a new network launch is always a challenge and ratings grow over time as you continue to gather an audience. I'm grateful to Rosie and the dedicated Rosie Show team for giving it their all." The final episode will tape on Tuesday. The last show will air March 30. Meanwhile, Rosie, saw the writing on the wall and sold her Chicago home earlier this month. OWN received it's best ratings ever last Sunday when Oprah aired her interview with the late Whitney Houston's daughter, Bobbi Kristina, her brother and sister-in-law.
