Good riddance, libturd…Oprah’s “replacement” Rosie O’Piggo’s show is cancelled in less than 5 months

It couldn’t happen to a nicer guy. This disgusting, vile, ignorant libturd slob’s 15 minutes of fame should have expired about 14 minutes and 59 seconds ago.

First of all she’s extremely stupid. All the imbecile can do is spout the lies and B.S. she reads at left-wing sites such as HuffPO, Media Matters, and Daily Kos, like when the dolt said that over 600,000 Iraqis died when we removed Saddam Hussein.

Rosie O’Donnell’s show cancelled

Despite Oprah Winfrey’s wing around “The Rosie Show,” it all fell down.

Rosie O’Donnell’s talk show — produced at Oprah’s old TV home, Chicago’s Harpo Studios, for Winfrey’s new TV home, the California-based OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network — has been canceled, the cable channel announced Friday.

The final new episode, to be taped Tuesday on the eve of O’Donnell’s 50th birthday, is set to run March 30.

Winfrey, in a statement, called O’Donnell “an incredible partner” and thanked her for “joining me on this journey.”

Since OWN was launched last year by Winfrey and 50-50 partner Discovery Communications, it has struggled to match expectations buoyed largely by Winfrey’s phenomenal success as host of a long-running Chicago-based syndicated TV show.

“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,” Winfrey said. “I’m grateful to Rosie and the dedicated ‘Rosie Show’ team for giving it their all.”

The hiring of O’Donnell, a comedian, actress and Emmy-winning host with her own successful daytime TV track record, to host a daily program produced in Winfrey’s old studio was seen as something of a coup for the network and for a local TV production community concerned about the void Winfrey was leaving behind.

But “The Rosie Show,” which made its debut in October, saw its average viewership slip from 500,000 at the start to about 150,000 in recent weeks. This did not help lure to Chicago top-line guests who once would have jumped at the chance to appear on Winfrey’s program. The Rosie Show never proved popular enough to be the daily anchor for OWN it needed to be.

Speculation about the troubled show intensified in recent months after O’Donnell changed the show’s format. Then she moved to sell the multimillion-dollar Chicago home she bought just months earlier.

“I loved working with Oprah in the amazing city of Chicago,” said O’Donnell, a native New Yorker. “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!”

It was not immediately clear what the cancellation would mean for O’Donnell’s Chicago production team members, many of whom hoped to be assigned to other Harpo OWN projects.

    I never understood who her audience was. Who in the world wants to watch an ignorant, obese, foul-mouthed, angry bull dyke? I’m still baffled.

    Somewhere, where ever the Hall of Fame for idiotic statements stands, this Rosie classic adorns the entrance:

    “Never before in history has fire melted steel.”

    Her 15 minutes will never be up, as her stupidity will live forever.

    Good Riddance to a male-bashing harridan. She deserves obscurity, and now she will not be able to broadcast her subtle and explicit male-bashing. Thank Goodness. Also, Obama remains a stuttering cluster of miserable failure.

    I like to think about Oprah losing her fan base after backing Ozero. Slowly, she’s not every woman’s “empowerment” idol. As for that Rosie twit, waste of protoplasm.
