Rosie and Fran teaming up for a sitcom
There's no question that Fran and Rosie are funny women with loyal fans. The Nanny was a CBS hit for six seasons. Rosie, who more recently has been a source of controversy like her very tumultuous time as a cohost on The View, has also been a success on TV. While she was on The View, the ratings were higher than ever before or since. She also had an Emmy-award winning daytime talk show for six years straight which had a vociferous following.
While Fran and Rosie were gung ho about their sitcom being a real things, Rosie's publicist has said that the project is still in the preliminary stages. Nevertheless, as Rosie's video log attests, the girls are ready to get going.
No word yet on what kind of comedy they have in mind, but I would like to see them as sisters, maybe like the Two and a Half Men formula, where the siblings are forced to live together -- with comic results.
