ABC had better work fast if they want to snag Rosie O'Donnell for another ratings blitz. NBC's new programming chief, Ben Silverman, is telling friends he will do anything to get Golden Ro a gig on the network. The head honcho is talking to Rosie about hosting a prime-time game show, as well as a daytime talkfest. Rosie's final ratings on The View reached unprecedented numbers, so she's one hot commodity, to say the least.
I think Rosie would be great as a game show host -- she tends to yell a lot, loves confetti, and is known to break into song with little coaxing. Very entertaining. I'm thinking she should get her hands on a show that finds talent for Broadway a la last summer's Grease reality show. That lady loves her a good musical. Then I will pray for the return of Battle of the Network Stars, so Ro and Elisabeth Hasselbeck can meet up at the dunk tank.
