Is Rosie O'Donnell Returning to Daytime TV?

Years after her variety show and her stint on 'The View,' guess which comic-turned-blogger still has more to say

When talk-show queen Oprah Winfrey signs off from daytime television in 2011, there will presumably be a huge void left in our afternoon programming. And now, rumor has it Rosie O'Donnell is planning to swoop in and deliver something new to entertain us all.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, O'Donnell is working with TV producers Dick Robertson and Scott Carlin to create a new syndicated chatfest, set to premiere just about the time The Oprah Winfrey Show signs off for good.

If the new gig materializes, O'Donnell should feel right at home: she racked up six Emmys for The Rosie O'Donnell Show during its six-year run, before landing a new job on ABC's The View for a very controversial 2006-2007 season.

Since bidding adieu to Barbara Walters and the View ladies, O'Donnell has been an active online presence and has enjoyed using her voice to reach fans with a daily two-hour broadcast on Sirius XM, "Rosie Radio." In January, she released an HBO documentary A Family Is a Family Is a Family: A Rosie O'Donnell Celebration, about diverse families including the children being raised by gay parents.
