Rosie O'Donnell's new variety show Rosie Live was a big freaking flop on NBC. A real turkey.
And so yet another attempt to try and revive the variety genre fails, but let's face it: if NBC really wanted a successful variety show they should have tried harder to get a better host. Someone who you could actually see as a host of a variety show. Someone like... Regis Philbin?!
So the variety show is still dead, while reality shows continue to litter our television sets. This all stinks but fear not, folks. According to writer Ken Levine, the sitcom is coming back.
