Rosie On The Rocks - Oprah’s ‘Star’ Ratings Lower Than whale Poop

Rosie On The Rocks

Oprah’s ‘Star’ Ratings Lower Than whale Poop

By Guest Blogger, Abraxas

Rosie O'Donnell's talk show is tanking.

She started out with a measly 500,000 viewers (half what a successful talk show needs to keep from being cancelled) but even that small number has now collapsed to an embarrassing 200,000.  And the ratings are still falling.

Her boss, Oprah Winfrey, is frantic.  OWN, already in serious financial straits, was desperately counting on the income from Rosie's "successful" show.  Unfortunately, that hasn't happened; the audience is leaving in droves and the advertisers are refusing to come on board.  The studio, clearly panicked, is doing everything it can to reverse the slide.  They've eliminated the mic stand, the "Johnny Carson-style curtain" Rosie stood in front of for her monologues, and phased out the game show element.  Last but not least, they've changed the blue interview chairs.  Yet the numbers are still plummeting.

Dang!  Who knew a bitter, hate-filled, foul-mouthed, unpatriotic wench wouldn't attract viewers?
