Rosie O’Donnell returns to TV – this time, on primetime
The last time we saw Nyack’s Rosie O’D. on TV, she was shaking things up on “The View.”
Now she’s back. But this time, she’s on primetime, trying to bring back the old-fashioned variety show. And she promises she won’t be bringing up anything controversial.
“Rosie Live,” a one-hour variety show featuring celebrity guests Liza Minnelli, Alec Baldwin and Jane Krakowski of “30 Rock,” Kathy Griffin, Ne-Yo, Gloria Estefan and Alanis Morissette, airs tomorrow night at 8 p.m. on NBC.
If all goes well, this will be a regular once-a-week gig for Rosie, which fits in better with her lifestyle as the mother of four. Still, even though this forum is a far cry from her days battling Elisabeth Hasselbeck and the other “View” ladies, Rosie hasn’t quieted down.
Not offscreen, anyway.
Rosie talked to reporters recently about how she wants her latest venture to be the modern-day Donny and Marie show. And wouldn’t you know it? “The View” happened to come up.
