  • Rosie O'Donnell talk show picked up by Oprah Winfrey's network, report says


    Rosie O’Donnell’s new talk show has finally found a home, on former rival Oprah Winfrey’s new network OWN, according to a report from

    The still-unnamed show, the brainchild of O’Donnell and syndication veterans Dick Robertson and Scott Carlin, will be her third venture into the daytime market. O’Donnell has previously hosted “The Rosie O’Donnell Show” and appeared on ABC’s “The View.”

    Once one of America’s most beloved comediennes, O’Donnell became a polarizing figure over the last decade after taking home six Daytime Emmys for Outstanding Talk Show Host during her years on “The Rosie O’Donnell Show.” But with strong political views and a reputation for berating guests with whom she disagreed, O’Donnell quickly became a controversial media personality.

    But representatives for OWN said the new show will be a “fun, uplifting” program with “O’Donnell’s playful and energetic style.”

    “Rosie is an undeniable talent who has captivated TV audiences for nearly 20 years,” Oprah Winfrey said in a statement. “She’s a true original, who brings her authentic voice, dynamic energy and pure passion to everything she does.”
