Rosie O’Donnell in Talks to Join MSNBC (MEGA BARF)
New York Times ^ | November 5, 2007 | JACQUES STEINBERG and BILL CARTER

Posted on 11/06/2007 9:23:14 AM PST by stratboy

Rosie O’Donnell, who abruptly left “The View” on ABC last spring after drawing attention and ratings for her opinions on everything from the Iraq war to her co-hosts, is in serious discussions to return to television atop a new soapbox: a prime-time show on the cable news channel MSNBC, according to executives on both sides of the negotiations who have been briefed directly. Under one scenario, Ms. O’Donnell would be given the 9 p.m. slot each weeknight on MSNBC, where she would go head-to-head with two heavyweights of cable talk: “Larry King Live” on CNN and “Hannity & Colmes” on Fox News. Her show would replace “Live with Dan Abrams,” a relatively low-rated program that only recently replaced “Scarborough Country,” which was also little-watched.

Good Lord fellow freeper, never ask that again!

MSNBC has went over the hill, from the “greening” thing to Rosie given a time slot, there is nothing left at the peacock network.

Fmr CEO Welch said that if two networks didn’t work out they would close one before he retired, GE never did, now they have dual albatrosses M(misery)NBC and C(cramer)NBC..

Hopefully larry kudlow will move to Fox Business Channel to escape the collpase...

MSNBC should follow the other Networks lead and go Green at 9 pm so as not to waste energy going up against Hannity and Colmes and Larry King Alive.

Does this mean she would follow Keith Olberperson or is it Chrissy Matthews??

Either way, it would make for an exceptionally bad two hour block.

What if Keith Olbermoan and Rosie do the nasty with each other and produce offspring? What would result? The literal spawn of satan.

Rosie naked? I would shove a nail in both eyes. Hers first and then mine.

Yep! PMSNBC has become the Fart America of Sat/Cable TV.

I’m wondering how long it will take her *this* time to crash and burn in her own pool of paranoid misery?? Probably a lot quicker than with the View..not having 4 co-hags to reign her in, even the small amout that they did...Should be interesting to see who she blames at PMSNBC when she does lose it again.

The “woman” is as mentally unstable as Cynthia McKinney and Roseanne Barr.
