Rosie O'Donnell Returns to TV -- and the Forecast Isn't Good

I hear Rosie O'Donnell has leagues of devoted fans, but I've never met one. I hope for Oprah Winfrey's sake that she asked her staff to produce evidence of these throngs of Rosie-lovers before she gave Rosie five live hours per week on her network.

Me, I never had very strong feelings about O'Donnell, at least not while she was enjoying her reign as the Queen of Nice. I admit I enjoyed the schadenfreude of her unmasking as not-that-nice, not-that-beloved and definitely not-that-into Tom Cruise, but the truth is I didn't pay her much attention.

Russell Brand, 'The Rosie Show'Rosie O'Donnell is back and in prime time with her new live venture. 'The Rosie Show' (Mon., 7PM ET on OWN) welcomed comedian Russell Brand, who has recently been outed as Rosie's latest "crush."

He talked about his nude protest against capitalism that didn't work as well as he might have hoped. Brand wound up getting arrested for indecent exposure, which he also took issue with.

Final tally for Brand's protest? "Capitalism succeeded, my naked body failed."

Rosie O'Donnell's First Promo for 'The Rosie Show' on OWN

Rosie O'DonnellBefore the haiku blog posts, before the asymmetrical haircut, before the controversy of 'The View' (but after/during the successful acting/comedy career), Rosie O'Donnell was a beloved syndicated morning talk show host.

O'Donnell is revisiting those days with a brand-new talk show on Oprah Winfrey's OWN. In the first promo for 'The Rosie Show,' watch O'Donnell discuss her new job with her not-at-all-excited (but adorable) young daughter. It'll make you wistful for those Tom Cruise- and Koosh ball-filled mornings of the '90s. We mean that in a good way.
