Rosie O’Donnell Axes 30 Crew Members From Her Talk Show

Whomp, whomp. That's what happens when the ratings just aren't there.

While Rosie O’Donnell is still trying her damnedest to find an audience for her new talk show, hard decisions were made over the weekend to ensure the show will stay on a bit longer on the OWN network.

Thirty employees were reportedly axed last week, making way for their salaries to be funneled into reworking the show to raise the plummeted ratings. In addition, Ro-Ro is getting moved to a smaller studio (less empty seats in the audience) and segments of the show like the house band and game show sequences have been scrapped.

Has the Koosh ball budget been slashed as well? Oh wait, that's the wrong talk show.

    Prediction: By the end of March, April latest, this show will be cancelled.



  2. 2

    i predicted when this show was first anbnounced it would last 3 4 months tops.



  3. 3

    Rosie stole all my Chicken Wings in my industrial fridge; she ate them all!



  4. 4

    America's not ready for 400 lbs. Bull-Dyke TV!



  5. 5

    she should just do her old show!! it would be HUGE!! oprah that fuckin' moon cricket is trying to destroy rosie!!



  6. 6

    No surprise here,
    she is just not funny,many people like myself find her very offensive
    Everything this woman touches, turns to shit
    She should pack it in, move back to Miami, and run a towing business



  7. 7

    She should have started by firing herself. Most boring, inane programme on OWN, and that is saying something.

    I dont like the format of the show now with the one on ones. It doesnt work. The Kathy Griffin one was great but everyday with this format is just too much. It should be a friday thing and the audience format the rest of the week. Rosie is a funny gal and the one on ones are so serious. We watch her to escape and laugh for an hour, not get educated on how the body works (Dr Oz). I love Rosie and will always support her but I think the show was better before.

    if she is going to stick with the one on one interviews (which I actually like better than her old cheesy format) she needs to learn how to interview people and not always try to interject about herself. I am a fan of Rosie, but she tries talking about herself way too much, or interrupts the guests and finishes their sentence. Most of them take it with stride because they are her friends, but I cringe at when people interrupt- let alone a professional.

    Re: raypearson – and I agreed….no talent here!!



  11. 11

    talentless slut pig…what wud u expect…
    bu bye, oink, oink…



  12. 12

    I'M still waiting for one of the kids she purchased (adopted ) to write a
    Daddy Dearest book



  13. 13

    Maybe if the fat cow would have given up a tiny portion of here $15 MILLION dollar salary then she wouldn't have had to fire 30 people and ruin their lives.
    30 people or a portion of her HUGE salary that she already didn't need.
    Fat greedy gluttonous pig.



  14. 14

    She didn't fire them…. she ate them! Chomp chomp



  15. 15

    She is a loud mouthed liberal. No one wants to listen to that shit. She can move to France. Maybe they would want to listen to her there.



  16. 16

    People tune in to see comedy and get her extreme viewpoints and that is uncomfortable to watch. What's also disturbing is when she gets "excited" and starts rubbing on herself…so gross and there were kids in her audience!!!!!!!!!!! What happened to her and why does she feel like she has to be so "in your face" with everything?! Relax, make people laugh and enjoy yourself. That is what people wanted from you, but sadly it is much too late.



  17. 17

    Who would even want to work with her?! Ugh. She is simply disgusting.



  18. 18

    Gee do you think SHE is the reason the show is failing and not the 30 axed employees? She is disgusting!



  19. 19

    she should make a jerry springer type show they are always popular forget the niceities get into the dirt and dirt lol



  20. 20

    Rosie is the one who needs to be axed. The show is awful.



  21. 21

    This fat fucking pig needs to just give up. A complete talentless hack. Go shop at Walmart where u fit in you lizard-lipped lint licker.



  22. 22

    My 60 inch wide screen TV is still not wide enough to show that loudmouth cow in actual size. They need to boot that talentless hefer off of TV and let her retire to the loading dock of a cafeteria where she can suck down leftovers all day long.

    Rosie is a bitter and overbearing rich person. She is the worst model possible for the gay community. Ellen is the best model for the gay community. Oprah has made a lot of poor choices on her OWN network.
