    If the TV variety format weren't already dead, the ghastly ego trip of NBC's Thanksgiving-eve turkey Rosie Live would surely have killed it. Like the pie Alec Baldwin predictably pushed into Conan O'Brien's face that fell to the floor without sticking, the entire hour landed with a sickening, sad, ill-conceived thud. It felt like an off night at America's Got Talent, bookended by wobbly appearances from Liza Minnelli and Gloria Estefan, each forced to perform with the caterwauling host, Rosie O'Donnell. The low point? There were so many. I ran to the kitchen to see how our sweet-potato casserole was...

    <p>Rosie O'Donnell's magazine partner, Gruner + Jahr, got dumped. Now all it wants is a good cry, a pint of ice cream, and a supportive group of girlfriends -- straight girlfriends, that is.</p> <p>Apparently, nobody told Gruner + Jahr that when the woman who once meant everything to you dumps you, you should take pause before sending out a revenge letter. Last week's scathing It's over memo, issued after Rosie O'Donnell pulled the plug on her namesake magazine, had all the quivering-upper-lip indignation of a psycho ex-girlfriend: "It is truly shocking and disappointing [translation: We feel so betrayed!]. . . .
