Rosie O'Donnell told journalists Friday that she thinks her daily evening talk show will give a boost to the floundering Oprah Winfrey Network.
The Rosie Show, which is slated to air weeknights at 7 p.m., was changed from its original daytime slot. The network and O'Donnell herself seem to be banking on the show's success, the Los Angeles Times reports. Her own network talk show had a solid core audience, and when the lesbian comedian joined The View on ABC in 2006, ratings rose by double digits.
Either way, O'Donnell said at the Television Critics Association press tour that she was done with broadcast networks for good after seeing NBC's treatment of talk show host Conan O'Brien, who now has a nightly show on TBS.
