Skip to comments.Report: ‘Rosie Show’ trims 30 employees, moves to smaller Chicago studio

The ratings-challenged Rosie Show has let go of as many as 30 employees and contract workers in recent weeks, Crains Chicago Business reported Friday.
Last month, the program moved out of Oprahs spacious former studio and started taping in a smaller, more intimate space reminiscent of a living room. Parts of The Rosie Show have been axed, such as the game show segment and having a band perform on the set.
The Rosie Show has struggled to capture a sizeable audience. Shortly after the programs October debut, viewer numbers have hovered around 200,000.

I wish you meat head Freepers would grab a crying towel, a box of bon-bon's, a beer, and park your right wing a$$es in front of the boob tube ... and then listen intently for hours to my insanely stupid libtard rants about the wonders of a homosexual lifestyle and the wisdom of Obozo ... cause I desperately need my bigger dressing room back ... I mean, have you evil idiots ever tried to stuff ten pounds of hog into a five pound sausage casing?
Yeah, like they could get her into a smaller studio.
Wow! "Rosie," "trims," and "30" in the same sentence!!
That move could explain the 2 tank trucks of Wesson Oil heading into downtown Chicago.
Just goes to prove that fat, gross, and stupid is no way to go through life
She should lose 30+ pounds.
Might make it easier to find furniture for her fat azz to land on.
She needs to stick to her core fields of expertise such as metallurgy.
“The ratings-challenged Rosie Show has let go of as many as 30 employees”
Well, guess they needed to offset for Rosie’s lunch.
‘Rosie’ cuts staff as show shifts format
Rosie appears to be that 1%er ruthlessly firing (a al Romney) some 99%ers to ensure that the huge income gap between the groups continues to grow. Hypocrite.
Maybe Obozo will mandate we all watch the show. Hey, maybe he can fit it into the next 2000 page bill. It will be for the children after all. If you disagree, then you hate children. Children hater!
From a spacious studio————>to a small, living room sized studio————>to the basement————>out the door————>obscurity.
She reminds me of my girlfriend.
The Bureau of Labor Statistics can adjust these figures to make sure that all 30 of these former employees are counted and taken care of by BIG gubmint. This shouldn’t hurt Barry’s new “boomin’ economy” numbers or his chances to be a two termer.
Fully realizing that Rosie O'Donnell and Roseanne
Arnold Barr are two separate people, it's a distinction with very little difference.
Most of the time I would feel awful for taking pleasure at someone else’s failure......but not this time
Wow....I almost shed a tear...
Well, not really ....
“She reminds me of my girlfriend.”
What... desperate for attention?
(sorry..couldn’t help myself but you started it)
it’s a distinction without a difference.
But how anyone so lacking in talent as Rosie O'Donnell (I mean NO talent) ever became employed in what is euphemistically called "entertainment" is one of the absolute mysteries.
I did not know Rosie had a show.
“The Rosie O’Donnell show, brought to you by Doctor Scholl Shoehorns.”
As I’ve written here before, you can expect to see Oprah back on broadcast TV by 2015—at the latest. OWN is bleeding money at an unsustainable rate, and the folks at Discovery (which ins underwriting the venture) are facing a critical choice. Keep throwing massive sums of money at a network with a dwindling audience, or pull the plug, and endure a p.r. nightmare as the outfit that “fired Oprah.”
As a reformed broadcaster, I can tell you exactly what Discovery will do. They will continue the down-sizing; Rosie will get the axe around the end of the year; there will be a rush to cheaper programming and “The Queen” will either resign (or be forced out) in a couple of years—at the latest.
And for what it’s worth, Oprah won’t be welcomed back to broadcast TV with open arms. Her audience was in decline for years before she signed off, and there are lots of cheaper programming options to fill the mid-morning or mid-afternoon time slots.
Rosie’s new digs in Chi-Town:
“the 6,000 square-foot home includes five bedrooms and five bathrooms, 11-foot ceilings, extensive millwork and custom cabinetry, along with a security system, sports bar and home theater.
Aside from the interior, the property has a 2,000 square-foot roof deck outdoors and a three-car heated garage. “
Maybe she can move her studio to her garage - it is, after all, heated.
And rent out her house - and live on the 2,000 sq’ patio - she’s insulated enough to take the cold.
On her first show, before she assaulted Tom Selleck on air, she used to pretend she had a crush on fellow weirdo homosexual Tom Cruise.
Everything about leftists is a lie.
Yep, remember years ago Rosie O’Donnell was the Queen of Nice on a previous talk show. It seems like a lifetime ago, but at that time, when she was still in the closet, both sexually and politically, she presented herself as a likeable character funny woman.
There is not a mass audience wanting to be lectured about liberalism and lesbianism and global warming and 911 conspiracy theories and all the rest of it. We all vote no by deciding not to watch her show.
Re-runs of Cake Boss and Super Nanny get better ratings than Rosie. Go figure.
200,000 viewers? An infomercial for a free kick in the crotch could beat those ratings.
They should choose to move Rosie to a more natural environment: Animal Planet.
Was in a pissy mood. Sorry..
I dont know what their platform would be but it would have to be very strong.
