MSNBC Chats Up Rosie
November 6, 2007 1:51 PM
Oh great. It might be time to turn down the volume in primetime on your TV set if what I read plays out. Today’s New York Times reports that NBC executives have acknowledged they’re in talks with Rosie O’Donnell to host a show in primetime on MSNBC.
One scenario has her occupying the 9 p.m. (ET) slot where she would be competing with CNN’s “Larry King Live.”
That same article quoted an NBC executive who admitted that “Tucker” an MSNBC show with Tucker Carlton that airs at 6 p.m., is in “real danger of being canceled.”
Whether that shuffling of the MSNBC prime-time deck ever happens is another story. Remember, Rosie only lasted nine months on ABC’s “The View,” often usurping the spotlight.
Frankly this blogger doesn’t think Rosie is ready for primetime at all.
Do you think she’s really in the same league as the other MSNBC hosts, Chris Matthews, Keith Olberman, Dan Abrams, Tucker Carlson, or Joe Scarborough?
