Rosie O'Donnell's talk show on Oprah Winfrey's OWN network has just been cancelled.
Says O'Donnell about the cancellation, "I loved working with Oprah in the amazing city of Chicago. I was welcomed with open arms and will never forget the kindness of all I encountered. It was a great year for me — I wish the show was able to attract more viewers — but it did not. So I am headed back to my home in New York — with gratitude. On we go!"
Since its debut, the show failed to attract significant viewership.
Rosie didn't seem too heartbroken over the news going public. Instead of going into hiding, O'Donnell Tweeted about going to see the Broadway show Other Desert Cities instead.
Broadway always makes the blues go away!
Of Rosie's axing, Oprah says: "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," Winfrey said in a statement. "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 last episode of The Rosie Show airs March 30th.
