Rosie O'Donnell's 'Rosie Live': What was she thinking?
The Los Angeles Times ^ | November 26, 2008 | Mary McNamara

Posted on 11/27/2008 12:07:37 PM PST by 2ndDivisionVet

Two words: Dancing food. “Rosie Live” ended with dancing food. There’s nothing else to say, really except perhaps, Liza Minnelli. “Rosie Live” opened with a little song and dance from Liza Minnelli, who rose to the stage, as if from the grave, to sing a duet with O’Donnell, in a luminous white suit, complete with fetching Broadway hat. Liza, we love you, we will always love you, but there is no shame in retirement.

In between we were treated to Harry Connick Jr. in a Santa hat, Conan O’Brien taking a pie in the face, and Jane Krakowski singing about all the free stuff audience members would get. Some of the items were pretty swell, but I’m here to tell you it wasn’t enough. Rosie made jokes about Spanx, Alec Baldwin appeared in a jacket two sizes too small with weird Einstein hair -- neither of which were part of a gag. Clay Aiken strolled over from “Spamalot” to participate in the world’s most painfully long gay joke ("What was the other thing we have in common," Rosie mused, "oh yeah, we're both Gaaa ... briel Byrne fans.") and Alanis Morissette sang a song referencing the 12 Steps in front of, I kid you not, an endless loop of geese flying through a sunset.

Flying geese! There are not enough free video cameras or White Castle burgers in the world to make up for that.

What was NBC thinking? Oh that’s right, they were promoting left wing drivel once again.

Actually, I didn;t even know there was a show by Jabba o Donnell til someone posted the story.
The guests that showed up probably needed the money..

She doesn’t think. She just blubbers.

Know what the real beautiful thing is?

I didn’t even know this was coming on. I got to read about it afterwards.

Who else wastes their time watching The “Big” Three anymore? After what they did leading up to the election, how can they be trusted with either news or even entertainment?

I’m confused— during a depression, why wouldn’t people want to listen to a fat, homely angry communist lesbian?

That!!!

From my experience, Rosie seldomly thinks.

I'd almost pay good money to see a hot dog eating contest between Rosie O'Donnell an Michael Moore.

Why oh why does TV keep bringing back this talentless, hateful woman? Was there no one else they could give a variety show to? Jeez.

And another thing. Imagine Ann Coulter -- only hateful, irrational, ugly, and stupid as all get out -- and then ask yourself if she would be given show after show regardless of her failures. What a left-wing medium TV has become.

Well hey, who ever said the first show couldn’t also be the last show? Pretty clever if you ask me.

What was she thinking?

You're making the assumption that she is capable of though.

That was your first mistake.

>>>>why wouldn’t people want to listen to a fat, homely angry communist lesbian?<<<<<

It’s funny, yesterday as we were preparing for today’s feast the tube was on and there she was in all her repellent glory, and like you, I also thought “Now who in their right mind wouldn’t want Thanksgiving cooking tips from Rachael Ray and her fat homely angry communist lesbian guest Rosie O’Dunce?”

Click!

BTW, we have duck.

I watched the beginning and it was not too bad. I do not like Rosie but I am glad to see that she rose above the f’n old bags on the View and got a new show.

I thought she was being hired by NBC NEWS to investigate George Bush’s role in the towers, his war crimes, and whether or not he kidnapped the Limbergh baby.

I would watch this woman as an “entertainer” only at the point of a gun...but first you’d have to prove it was loaded.

For the same reason the Hollywood Gaystapo props up every gay performer, especially lesbians. They are by God going to FORCE the rest of us to accept them. Like Air America, few of them could ever succeed without outside backing. What mixed audience would ever watch Sarah Bernhard, Rosie, Ellen, Stephanie Miller and a slew of others? It's all part of the Leftist political agenda.

One lesson is sure from this. If the variety show format had any chance at all of returning to the air waves, her show killed it. Makes me wonder if the choice Of Rosie as host was done for this very reason.

I loved the comments after the article


Hey Fatso, you lost me at your Barack Obama homage. Way to piss off 62 million people who veoted for the other guy! NBC, your stupid leftist programming is why you are in 4th place and Zucker needs to cut $500 million. Couldn’t you have gotten Marie Osmond or Julianne Hough to host a variety show! Jeesh!

So I was listeing to Rush this week when he was talking about an interview by I think Barbara Walters. Rush asked her why she didn't like Sarah Palin...

Barbra Wawa apparently said, "she's so uninformed."

So I said to myself, "did this woman pay attention to Rosie O'Donnell when she worked with her? What a liberal twit."

I used to enjoy Rosie's work before she let her inner angry lesbian leftist come out.

Beyond a train wreck...Rosie’s show was a disaster more on par with the space shuttle crashing into the Empire State Building, and dislodging King Kong who then falls and crushes a school bus full of orphans.

I watch little television, and never gab shows such as Oprah. Such tripe is painful to watch. Everyone has productive things to do instead of watching people make small talk.

That said, I would pay money to NOT watch Ms O'Donnell.

Such a reptilian humanoid is she. To me, this program must be the broadcast equivalent of waterboarding.
