Rosie Show Ends with a Splat


The Rosie O’Donnell variety show is not to be. Via Mediaweek:

Despite the considerable promotion, NBC special Rosie Live (a potential back-door pilot) averaged a mere 5.04 million viewers and a 1.2 rating/ 4 share among adults 18-49 (based on the fast affiliate results, according to Nielsen Media Research data) on Wednesday, Nov. 26. 

Comparably, that placed it third in the 8 p.m. hour behind Fox’s Bones (Viewers: 9.76 million; A18-49: 2.7/ 9) and CBS sitcoms The New Adventures of Old Christine (Viewers: 7.60 million; A18-49: 2.0/ 7) and Gary Unmarried (Viewers: 7.72 million; A18-49: 2.2/ 7). 

Rosie O’Donnell has posted on her blog that NBC will not be ordering any additional installments of Rosie Live.

It must hurt to get beat by The New Adventures of Old Christine.
