Rosie O'donnell Us Talk Show Axed By Oprah Winfrey


Rosie Odonnell's US talk show has been axed after only five months on the air. ROSIE O'DONNELL's show has been taken down from the Oprah Winfrey TV Channel after failing to attract high ratings.

The show debuted in October with 500,000 viewers, only to plummet to just 204,000 last month, according to Variety Magazine. The show was filmed at Chicago's Harpo Studios, the same studios for the Oprah Winfrey Show for 25 years. It initially began being taped with a live audience but then became a one-to-one interview show. O'Donnell stated: '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.' She further elaborated that she had been welcomed on the network with 'open arms', whilst Oprah Winfrey argued that '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 talk show had seen guests such as Russell Brand, Kathy Griffin and Chelsea Handler.

ROSIE O'DONNELL had had a previous chat show which had run from 1996 to 2002 and won several Emmy Awards. The final episode of 'The Rosie Show' will air on 30th March (2012).
