The Rosie Show Headed to OWN, Sullen Tween in Tow


I'd be even more on board with OWN's The Rosie Show, premiering October 10, if every episode featured O'Donnell with a really bored, eye-rolling child in her lap. Actually, I'd prefer it if every talk show switched over to a lap-based sidekick. Having Andy Richter make sarcastic asides while perched on Conan's knee seems like a natural progression of the format. Alternately, Rosie can sit on a panel with Kathy Bates and Roseanne Barr and make the studio audience guess which woman is which. Hint: O'Donnell is the one with the tiny petulant lap-kick.
