News flash: Nobody likes Rosie O’Donnell

But you knew this, right?

The network’s attempt to revive the primetime variety show failed to draw an audience Wednesday night, tying for the evening’s lowest-rated program.
A mere 5 million viewers tuned in for the 8 p.m. premiere of “Rosie Live,” with the program earning a 1.2 preliminary adults 18-49 rating. The telecast matched ABC’s recently canceled “Pushing Daisies” as the night’s lowest-rated program on a major broadcast network.
NBC had high hopes for the special and planned to expand the program into a series should viewers re-embrace the decades-old variety format.

Gee, let’s give a show to an obnoxious, unattractive lesbian, and then when it flops, we’ll blame the format. These Hollywood people are geniuses, I tell you!

Next up: “The Nathan Lane Variety Hour.”
