Well here we go. Oprah’s OWN cable channel is treading some serious water right about now because no one is watching the network. OWN got a big break recently but of course it all comes from the hands of none other than Oprah Winfrey. The one on one interview with Bobbi Kristina Houston after her mother Whitney’s sudden death gave the network some serious props but can OWN survive on all Oprah all the time.
Of course not.
But one show that was expected to generate some serious buzz for OWN became a quick disaster. And that disaster has ended quickly for Rosie O’Donnell”s entry on OWN that was sent to the canceled bin by the network.
No ratings equals no revenue equals no show. Yes, no show any longer on OWN for Rosie O’Donnell. Who is to blame? Well we can take our guess and say that Rosie O’Donnell is too obnoxious in the new age of 2012 and suburban mothers don’t want to watch her let alone have their kids turn on her loud mouth.
OK that was a bit much.
But really there’s more. How about trying to build a network, any network, around Rosie O’Donnell. Simply one of the dumbest programming moves since putting Jay Leno at 10PM on NBC.
Yeah that was dumb. But at least the network corrected a huge mistake.
We’d go on but there’s a great article in The Daily Beast simply titled “Rosie O’Donnell’s Disastrous Oprah Winfrey Network Experience,” Ramin Satoodeh links way behind the scenes of a show that seemed to have no chance of survival. In other words what a mess.
